Squeeze Me

For our anniversary, BD gave me a Squeezebox Duet. We got it set up over the weekend, and it is great! The Squeezebox connects to your Wi-Fi network and your home audio system to play all of the audio files stored on your PC over your home stereo speakers. It also connects to any music services you subscribe to (Pandora, Rhapsody, iTunes, etc) and all of the Internet radio stations, including any local stations that stream music. Very cool!

It was relatively easy to set up; we did have one issue with the firewall on our router blocking access, but that was simple enough to resolve. At our house, the controller works from every room - even from upstairs. If you would like to have access to all of your electronic music files on your home system, we recommend the Squeezebox!

Indeed, that sounds very cool. I'm pretty low-tech here - my largest television is only 19". I have an "ihome"-like speaker-base for my ipod that is a lot more powerful than I ever would've believed before I got it. My stereo system (with only one working speaker) is hooked up to my tiny television so that I at least have decent sound. Don't get me wrong, I don't mind my low-tech life. My friends always tease me that if I were married there's no way I'd have such a tiny TV. Oh well, I don't mind not being married either :)
