Logitech Squeezebox Touch


Recommended Posts

Came across a press announcement this morning introducing the new Squeezebox Touch - http://www.logitech.com/index.cfm/speakers_audio/wireless_music_systems/devices/5745#. Gotta say this looks very compelling. It will allow me to extend my library to anywhere in my domicile with a great user interface and support for up to 24/96! It has no moving parts (quiet), it can accept content on USB memory or SD devices, it's got built-in WIFI and S/PDIF out for the DAC of my choice. And it's only $300!!!

 

I am in no way affiliated with Logitech - although I will probably be a customer soon.

There has been a lot of chatter about this new Squeezebox. It has now been launched but is not expected in Europe till December.

The new device is a programmable Linux box running a server, a streamer and a controller.

 

As with the SB3 the Touch has Toslink and RCA S/PDIF outputs as well as it's own DAC and analogue outputs - line and headphone. The USB socket is set up for attaching an external hard drive of USB stick, but the Linux can be reconfigured to stream out of the USB to an external DAC.

 

The touch will stream natively up to 24/96, but some have offered the opinion the hardware will support up to 192.
