  Posted by: AceBHound on Aug 21st, 2009 2:04 PM
Over in the Squeezebox forums there's some buzz about pictures of FCC test with a new Squeezebox Radio that may be the smaller sized LCD-based BOOM replacement.

Squeezebox Radio model X-R0001 is a compact tabletop network music player and internet radio that lets you listen to virtually any internet radio station, music service or entire personal digital music collection. Providing remarkable sound in a compact footprint, the X-R0001 extends the power and ease-of-use of the Squeezebox to any room. The Squeezebox Radio model X-R0001 features:

* Compact Design
* Bi-amplified design with -inch high-definition, soft-dome tweeter
* 3-inch high-power, long-throw woofer
* 10W digital power amplifier
* 2.4 Color TFT LCD
* Front panel controls including scroll wheel * 802.11b/g Wi-Fi
* One-touch WPS wireless setup
* Built-in 10/100 Ethernet
* Headphone Jack
* Works with all Squeezebox family products

Not many other details are known at this time but rumored to be released at the end of September. There's also a Squeezebox Touch that will have a touch-screen interface and would essentially be an update to the current "Squeezebox Classic" radio.

I for one can't wait for these to come out and hoping these new radios debut at a reasonable price so I can add to my current Squeezebox family of products and have one for the home gym!
