Easy setup with your home network

Setup is as simple as downloading the SlimServer software to your PC and adding this player to your home network. Built-in Wi-Fi® makes hookup even easier if you've got a wireless router or access point. If you prefer to make a wired connection, use the Squeezebox Touch's Ethernet port. Digital and analog audio outputs let you hook this player up to just about any audio system.

Stream an array of digital music formats from a variety of sources

This versatile system lets you access music from many venues — play your computer's digital music collection, listen to Internet radio stations, or subscribe to an online music library like Rhapsody®. The Squeezebox Touch supports today's popular audio formats, including compressed, uncompressed, and even lossless files.

MOG

MOG — over 15 million songs, available instantly

MOG is an award-winning online music service with one of the largest and best-sounding streaming catalogs in the industry. It's the only service to offer all of its music in the 320 kbps MP3 format — that higher bit rate translates to better sound. In fact, we use it frequently in the Crutchfield Labs to test high-end audio gear. MOG's "Primo" service ($9.99/month) gives you unlimited, ad-free access to their extensive music library of over 15 million songs on a wide range of devices including Squeezebox™ network music players, Samsung TVs, your computer, iPad®, iPhone®, and Android™ devices.

Create a multi-room music system

Use additional Squeezebox Touch players or other Squeezebox devices to enjoy music in more areas of your home. If you have a Squeezebox Duet, you can use its LCD remote to control this player and your other Squeezebox music players.
