All you need is a Spotify Premium subscription, a Radio or Touch and you can start streaming via your Squeezebox to every corner of your house.
To add Spotify go to “App Gallery” and then “Music On-Demand” on your Squeezebox.
The Squeezebox Radio and the Squeezebox Touch are also Squeeze OS based.
As the Squeezebox Controller had largely been rendered obsolete by smartphone and tablet PC apps, and the Squeezebox Touch surpasses the Squeezebox Receiver in all respects, the Squeezebox Duet was discontinued in early 2011.
It is wired-Ethernet only and natively supports one audio format, MP3.
Logitech Media Server can transcode other audio formats to MP3 on the fly, using the LAME MP3 encoder.
With the introduction of the "Duet" Squeezebox3 was renamed "Squeezebox Classic". Additional features over Squeezebox v3 include dual 320×32 pixel displays, front panel buttons and tactile feedback knob, redesigned backlit remote control, balanced (XLR) and unbalanced audio outputs, balanced and unbalanced digital inputs and outputs (AES/EBU and S/PDIF) (inputs for operation as a standalone DAC), RS-232 serial connection for external control, Infrared input and output.
Other versions followed, gradually adding native support for additional file formats, Wi-Fi-support, gradually adding larger and more advanced displays as well as a version targeting audiophile users.
Support for playing music from external streaming platforms such as Pandora, Napster, and Sirius were also added.
In a departure from previous models, the Boom combines Squeezebox functionality with a DSP, a 30 W integrated amplifier and bi-amped stereo two-way speakers to produce a self-contained device which requires only a network connection (either wired or wireless) and power.
Without a network connection, the Boom can still amplify and play a line level signal from an external player through a 3.5mm mini-jack plug.
