Choose Squeezebox Touch to Be Your Home Music Server

The Squeezebox Touch is designed to be a small yet powerful home music server. Built into the software is a full-featured version of Logitech’s proven Squeezebox Server software optimized for the Squeezebox Touch. With it, you can stream your music, Internet radio, or local radio from around the world to other Squeezebox players in your home.

The Squeezebox Touch is a low power-consuming home music server, when compared to your laptop or server currently running Squeezebox Server.

But if you want to keep your music library on a PC or Mac — don’t worry! Squeezebox Server on a Squeezebox Touch is optional. The choice is yours!

The Squeezebox Touch also has the well-regarded high-end audio quality that Squeezeboxes are known for, with all of the analog and digital outputs for your headphones, powered speakers or audio-video components.

A world of Wi-Fi music at your fingertips

From the hottest online music services to free Internet radio from every corner of the globe, limitless music choices are just a touch away. Even your entire digital music collection is right at your fingertips. You’re free to listen to anything you can think of, all through your home stereo. With Squeezebox Touch, your stereo isn’t just a music system. It’s the center of your music universe.

Tune in to your limitless playlist

  • Free local stations from every corner of the Internet
  • Music services like Pandora, Rhapsody, Slacker and SIRIUS Internet Radio
  • Your digital music stored on your home PC or Mac
  • Plug in your flash drive to instantly play your favorite tracks

High-resolution encoding support for full, rich stereo sound

You like to hear it all, from the haunting high notes in a U2 guitar solo to the deep resonant bass at the bottom of a Miles Davis classic. The 24/96 kHz DAC, advanced audio rendering technology, and digital outputs all work together to make sure the important details in your digital music sources don’t get lost in translation. Even if you’re playing music softly in the background, you’ll enjoy a high quality sound experience—without missing a beat, note or nuance.

Brilliant full-color touch-screen

The easy-to-read 4.3-inch touch-screen and intuitive menus put you in total music control. Simply touch My Music, Internet Radio or one of your favorite online services like Napster® or Pandora® to browse, select and play whatever suits your mood. View album art, track and station information, visualizers and screen savers on the large display. You can even use your own photos from an SD card or Flickr and Facebook as a screen saver.

Seamless home network support, effortless setup

Squeezebox Touch keeps things simple from the start. Just connect the player to your stereo and the player automatically finds your home Wi-Fi network. You also have the option to plug in an Ethernet cable. Either way, just follow the simple on-screen instructions to connect to your home network and start playing music.

Listen where you live

Do you want to play your music in other rooms—without running wires? It’s easy. Create a multi-room system by simply adding more Squeezebox players in other rooms—like your kitchen, bedroom or patio. All of our players work together. Add a Squeezebox Controller and you’ve got control of all your Squeezebox players in the palm of your hand. You can play the same music throughout the house, or mix it up with a different playlist in every room.

  • Access your music and photos directly from USB drives and SD cards
  • Support for 24 / 96 kHz encoding

The Squeezebox Touch has the same capabilities of a Squeezebox Classic – a Wi-Fi music player capable of playing music from your iTunes or MP3 collection, Internet radio from services such as Pandora, Deezer, Rhapsody, Last.fm, or tuning into local AM/FM radio stations from around the world – but updated with a 4.3 inch (11 cm) color touch screen interface and the simple-to-use menus also used on the Squeezebox Radio.

A Squeezebox to Control Other Squeezeboxes

Place the Squeezebox Touch on your desk or a table next to your favorite chair, and you have a whole-house music controller. Control any of the Squeezebox players throughout your home with a simple touch or swipe of a finger.

You can also access music, photos via the Squeezebox Touch’s built-in USB port and SD card slots. The size of the attached library is limited by the storage attached to the USB port, or up to 32GB on SD cards; that’s a lot of songs and pics! Or, if you’re a Flickr user, set up the Squeezebox Touch to view your Flickr photostream.
