Philips Streamium NP2900 Review - Digital Audio Receivers (DARs)


It's good enough to make me go out and buy but I think it needs improvement, particularly with the controls. On the other hand, it's a Philips and I've always had good experiences with their products so it's not that bad.

Wifi capability. Can allow user to have Internet radio and MP3 player without having to hassle with hooking up a bulky system

Like my old DVD player, it's almost useless without the remote. You can't detach the speakers and aim the sound in the direction you want

Philips Streamium NP2900 Review - Digital Audio Receivers (DARs)


Ten minutes after opening the box I managed to listen to whatever radio station, even without opening the instructions for use. As I do not have the quickest net connection I was expecting some buffering or even pause, but this was not the case. It...

buildt quality, sound, ease of use, big colour display, design, almost no buffering delays, no buffering pause when listening to radio, wall mounting possibility

no battery, no usb host

Philips Streamium NP2900 Review - Digital Audio Receivers (DARs)


Sound quality is amazing especially with Living Sound. It gives me a sense of fullfillment in my living room. Other EQ stuff has effect but not like LivingSound. Nice, cool artwork though I do not see the artwork completely as its cut in the bottom. I...

I am overwhelmed by the LivingSound audio - that surrrrrrrrrrround effect is heavenly. Nice color LCD. Can see my favorite artwork. I recently bought a NAS and was a bit worried whether this thing will work with it but i am wrong :) Happy guy here ;)

Toooooo costly for these less features. No lastfm, no napster, no flicker. What is the use of a color lcd without streaming from Youtube? Many devices supports it, you know

Non, it is a fantasic device and the best I have seen it realy works wel

Philips Streamium NP2900 Review - Digital Audio Receivers (DARs)


It is really a good companion to me and I like to start putting it on in the LivingRoom playing some background music while I am reading magazines and enjoying cappuccino there. It saves a lot of my space too.

Connection is very easy and I finish the Wifi connection within 3 minutes

Buffering time needs to wait for a little bit, but still acceptable

Consumer review by:

A nice player with an incredible sound


Set-up :

Incredible sound ; Great experience thanks to the several lines color display ; Album arts available for Rhapsody and UPnP as well as internet radios logos ; Can play Itunes track tks to Twonky SW bypacked ; Strong WiFi streaming performances

NP1100's useful quick jump function not available

Consumer review by:

It finally replaced my old FM-radio ...


The TwonkyMedia UPnP server SW is great. Easy to install and you kind find all your music on the NP2900 (no blocking of less common compression formats, like WMP does). This Twonky is very stable and faster discovered by NP2900 than any other UPnP...

NP2900 has everything in one box - Speakers, amplifier, digital receiver. No wires required to your PC or Radio/Music provider. Finally my strange noises, hiss sound is gone - the Internet radio makes the difference. This is the HD of the Radio

Remote has many buttons - should consider to separate groups by colors ; Album art based browsing not yet fully there
