Logitech Squeezebox Touch Wireless Music Streamer

Setup

Setting up the Touch was a multiple step process: Connecting the Touch to my stereo (I used both RCA and Coaxial digital to compare), registering a MySqueezebox account, and installing the server software on a PC in the house. Here the addition of the touch sensitive screen made setup a breeze. Connecting to my network was simple, and registering an account through the device was very easy as there is a virtual QWERTY layout keyboard that appears on the screen. Installing the software on the server was simple as well, with me pointing it to the location of my music library, connecting it to my just created MySqueezebox account, and letting it scan my library. In total, I was able to have the Squeezebox up and playing music in 30 minutes, all while holding a 4 month old at the same time. It was a very nice, simple setup process that the screen really helped with.

Later on, I downloaded the iPeng software for my iPhone (http://penguinlovesmusic.de/) to let me control the Touch from anywhere in my house. With a much more visual interface, I believe it to be an instant purchase if you own an iPhone or iPod Touch. The Logitech remote worked fine for daily use, but for $10 the iPeng interface was much better overall.
