pic Slim Devices today introduced Squeezebox2, an updated version of its network audio device that streams music from your computer to another room where it can be played through your stereo. Squeezebox2, together with SlimServer 6, supports a large number of audio formats, including AAC (unprotected), MP3, FLAC, Apple Lossless, AIFF, WMA, WAV, and Ogg Vorbis.

Features include: a 24-bit Burr-Brown digital-to-analog converter; optical and coaxial S/PDIF outputs; built-in support for 802.11g; a larger 320 x 32 vacuum fluorescent display; an improved search feature; the ability to connect to SqueezeNetwork for “always-on” access to Internet radio streams; and an option to automatically import existing playlists from iTunes.

The Squeezebox2 is available in two colors—Basic Black and Triple Platinum—and will ship on March 31. The Wireless version will sell for $299, while the Squeezebox2 Wired will be priced at $249.

Since the device needs a computer anyway, it would be nice if it also had an audio-in port, so it could broadcast ANYTHING—including protected AAC—just by connecting one more cable from your computer. (But you’d have to settle for iTunes as your control method.)
