Pandora + Squeezebox

Today we’re launching Pandora + Squeezebox.
Squeezebox, from Slim Devices, is simply the best way to deliver digital music to your home stereo. It’s a beautiful device, with an elegant user interface and exceptional audio quality. Plug it into your home network (wired or wireless) and enjoy Pandora from the comfort of your couch. You’ll be able to listen to all of the stations you’ve been creating at Pandora.com, rate songs, and bookmark favorites all with a simple remote control.
Pandora + Squeezebox is available to Pandora subscribers ($36 for a year or $12 for three months) and will work with any Squeezebox 2 as well as the new (and very beautiful) Squeezebox 3.
Pandora and Slim Devices are offering free 90 day Pandora subscriptions to new and current Squeezebox 2 and 3 owners. To get started you’ll need to signup for Squeezenetwork. When you connect your account with your ad-supported-free Pandora.com account (you’ll do this from your account page at the Squeezenetwork website) we’ll automatically upgrade you to a 90-day-free subscription on Pandora. No credit card required.

Here’s what David Pogue at the New York Times had to say recently about Slim Devices and Pandora:

“the Squeezebox will do something no other hi-fi component can do: it will hook into Pandora… Slim Devices predicts that Pandora will become a wildly popular feature, and that’s probably true.” (read the entire story, see the video)

  1. This looks like an amazing device. As a college student, I have appreciated the value of an mp3, however your program forces them into obsolecence.
    I know that once I graduate and have a meaningful income, I will jump in line for a squeezegbox.
    One thing is missing, perhaps select music based on album along with song title and artist name.

  2. Two things, that’s great but…
    1. Any plans to integrate yourself into Windows Media Center? That would be very sweet, in a rare turn, I may actually pay for that!
    2. Two bands, Matt Mays and El Torpedo (can you say cocaine cowgirl? and Wintersleep, fine Canadian acts. Tour the world, not just the southern US!
    Great work and Thank-you!

  3. Squeezebox sounds like something that I will get into! I stumbled upon this site by accident and I’m hooked!!!

  4. Looks like a nice deal, but I’m doing nearly the same thing for < half the cost. I have an Apple Airport Express connected to my stereo. Using ain and justeport, I can stream anything out of my sound card’s stereo mix, including Pandora, to my stereo over my wireless network. (you can learn more here http://www.nanocrew.net/2005/07/23/justeport-02/).
    Don’t mean to rain on your parade, it’s just that there’s more than one way of skinning a cat.

  5. Any chance of doing this with an Audiotron? Squeezebox is cool, but the Audiotron has a much better interface (aka, it actually has an interface).

  6. Already committed to Roku for transmitting music around the house. When is Pandora going to support Roku? I’m not going to buy more hardware just to get Pandora out of my office….

  7. Another shout for Roku support here. I’d make so much more use of Pandora if it was able to be played easily without mucking about with Oddcast etc …
    It’s probably the biggest hole in my entertainment system. :(

  8. Why isn’t more internation music on this channel. I love this band, called Dragon Ash, earlier material. They are from Japan.

  9. Same problem as Steve. Bought Pandora One and still get 128kb streams on squeezebox. Is there a setting that I need to fix, or is this an unfixed problem with the plugin?
