Next Meeting – Tuesday, March 13th, 2012

Main Presentation – Squeezebox

Our main presentation features the Logitech Squeezebox ecosystem. If you’ve ever thought about having multiple-room, multiple device playback of audio, playing local or Internet-based content, then the Logitech (formerly Slim Devices) Squeezebox platform is for you. Craig Maloney will present what the Squeezebox platform is, what it can do, and how you can set it up tonight without making an emergency stop to the computer store. This presentation will focus on the open source aspects of the Squeezebox platform, as well as discuss how you can expand the platform to meet your music listening needs. As an added bonus, Logitech has generously provided us with discount coupons good for a considerable discount on their online store. If you have ever dreamed of having multiple-room music using open-source software, you won’t want to miss this!
