Dear Logitech Squeezebox owners,
We’ve recently announced our new brand, Logitech UE, and with it merging the design/engineering capability of Logitech with the music know how of Ultimate Ears. We are positioning this new brand to serve music lovers across a wide range of music listening devices, and amongst them the Logitech® UE Smart Radio.
The Logitech® UE Smart Radio is a dedicated music device that can play Internet Radio, online music services and music from your PC or Mac – all in one simple, unified interface.
As you may notice, it is the same industrial design as the Squeezebox Radio. None the less, some significant changes have been made
First of all, the new Logitech® UE Smart Radio now comes with a rechargeable battery that lets you take your music with you around the home, with up to six hours of continuous playback. The software has been fully redesigned to provide easier setup along with more intuitive navigation and engagement ability on the radio itself and from our entirely new mobile apps, “Logitech UE Smart Radio Controller for iOS and Android.” Lastly, our new product website (www.uesmartradio.com) has been redesigned to focus on seamless setup of Music services and personal music libraries.
Important for you to know, the Logitech UE Smart Radio can play alongside your Logitech Squeezebox products, but will operate and be controlled as two separate systems. The team is working hard on releasing in a few weeks an optional software update for existing Squeezebox Radio users. This update will allow Squeezebox Radios to upgrade to the new Logitech UE Smart Radio experience.
Rest assured that the Squeezebox platform you’ve been enjoying over the years will continue to provide you access to a rich world of music and we’ll continue to address any questions or troubleshooting on our Logitech.com support page:http://www.logitech.com/en-us/support/speakers-aud

We value providing you the best in dedicated music access in your home, and wish you an enjoyable music discovery experience.
The Logitech UE Smart Radio team
