Squeezebox – 25th Dec 2004 (Christmas present from Kix)

This is the most awesome toy! It plays music and radio. It gets the radio from the internet and it gets the music from mp3’s stored on a PC. It is called a “Digital Media Adaptor”.

It streams files over our Wi-Fi network. All you need to do is to run Squeezebox software which acts as a music server. The software is open-source, it runs on Linux, it’s easy to install and is written in Perl so I might have a go at editing it one day.

The plan is to add a couple more Squeezeboxen to other rooms in our house and to install in-ceiling speakers. This is our plan of creating a integrated audio system.
