You know damn Post Denmark haven't delivered packages since Wednesday or so due to Easter. Naturally, they do not deliver packages on Saturdays unless you pay an extra fee. So I have not received it yet. I miss it every time I wash my dishes though.
I can tell you the Boom has very decent sound considering its size. From the reviews I have read the Radio should have decent sound too.
I do feel a bit sad when my main rig and the Boom are synced and I walk from my main rig in the living room to my bedroom/"office", where the Boom is located, as the bass and overall richness is definitely lacking. But then again my living room speakers are > ½ meter tall so one should be able to tell the difference!
These are really great, cheap
and good sounding network players. I have paid less than DKK 3000 (~ EUR 400) for three players (Boom, Radio and Duet). I was actually taken back by the quality of these devices. The build quality is surprisingly good. I though they would feel cheap compared to Sonos but I was wrong.
Being able to access my music seamlessly with real
hardware players has given me great satisfaction! Another great thing is that most of the firmware is open source and modular so lots of cool plugins are available.
Dedicated devices are the future! Oh the simplicity! My great hope is to delete everything media-related from my laptop. I just want to run Arch
and handle plain text documents!
