Reviewed: the Logitech UE Boombox
Tuesday, December 4, 2012 @ 11:50pm

Early attempts at streaming music to a speaker set from a portable device were a bit clumsy. It's ten years later now, and Bluetooth speakers dot the landscape, replacing the rudimentary first efforts to cut the audio cord. Peripheral manufacturer Logitech purchased Ultimate Ears, or UE, in 2008 with the express purpose of rolling out its own line of wired and wireless streaming devices. The Logitech UE Boombox is the fruit of that purchase. Where does this $249 device fit on the ever-expanding line of Bluetooth streaming devices aimed at the music enthusiast? We aim to find out.
