Tech Industry: Logitech Squeezebox Duet

1:29 /

From CES 2008, Natali Del Conte takes a look at the Logitech Squeezebox Duet, a system which controls your media library from any PC, Mac, or Linux machine, running over your home network.

>> Hey there I'm Natali del Conte with CNET TV here from the CES floor with a first look at the Logitech Squeezbox Duet. Now the Squeezbox is not a new product from Logitech. What's new about it is they've got a new controller. Now the controller in like the old one, which mounted on your wall, is actually a portable device. It looks a bit like an iPod, in fact it's even got the scroll wheel like the iPod. The display is really nice, it's a 2 point 4 inch LCD screen. Now about the Squeezbox, it controls your media library from any PC, MAC, or Linux machine. It runs over your home network on an 802 11 router. You upload your library into the Squeezbox network and then play whatever you've got. A cool thing about this, you also don't need a PC because it connects to the internet, so it can play any online radio, it can play with rhapsody, pandora, and logitech says they have a new partnership with Last FM as well, so you'll be able to network within the Squeezbox community. It costs 399 dollars, if you want an extra controller that's 299 dollars. You might want an extra receiver as well, the receiver is 149 dollars and you'll want one of these either one per room, or one per speaker set up. So this is the Logitech Squeezbox Duet and it is available this month. I'm Natali del Conte with CNET TV coming to you from CES 2008. [ music ]
