Expert review by:

Philips Streamium NP2900

 

The Philips NP2900 is a great-sounding Wi-Fi radio with a unique color display, but it doesn't offer enough features to justify its price premium over competitors.

Excellent sound quality for its size; unique color screen that displays album art; full Rhapsody integration; provides access to thousands of Internet radio stations; stylish exterior design; easy setup to stream music from connected PCs.

Interface can get sluggish with large music libraries; slight delay between tracks; no support for Pandora, Last.fm, or Slacker; included remote occasionally confusing.

Philips Streamium NP2900 network music player review

 

Philips have impressed with their range of Streamium products in the past, delivering easy-to-use options for those with digital music collections who want to play their music elsewhere. The NP2900 is a network music player, providing the connectivity...

Excellent sound quality, compact, nice vibrant colour screen

Price, can be slow to navigate, photo viewing a little basic, occasional wireless drop out

Excellent sound quality marred slightly by the price and slow navigation

Philips NP2900 review

 

Streaming music around the house and tuning into the world's finest radio stations are nothing new, so it's a little baffling to find that there are still so few affordable network media players. Our current favourite is the Logitech Squeezebox Boom ,...

Philips delivers an attractive and capable networked media player.

The Philips Streamium NP2900 might not stand out particularly, but luckily its performance means it doesn't need to. Adding a radio tuner to the mix wouldn't have done the system any harm, but the omission shouldn't be considered a death knell by any...

Philips Streamium NP2900 review

 

The Philips Streamium NP2900 is an updated version of the NP1100 we looked at last year but found rather hefty and its menu clunky to negotiate. Happily, both the design and navigation issues have now been addressed.

Philips has put together a very attractive, easy to set up Wi-Fi music streamer and radio. The colour display and improved navigation, plus a standby power consumption of just 1Watt are all in its favour – it’s really only the £230 price tag that lets...

Finally, the NP2900 froze up on us a few times, sometimes taking a few minutes to finally wake up, but twice requiring us to unplug it and plug it back in. It didn't happen enough to really frustrate us, but we're hoping Philips updates the firmware to...

Philips Streamium NP2900 review

 

The moment we started playing a file through Philips' latest Streamium it was obvious that the NP2900 was a cut above your average streaming audio player.

Expert review by:

Philips NP2900

 

It's got a couple of flaws and missing features, but we can't help but like this new Streamium

Compact, stylish, wall-mountable and very solidly built ; great remote ; bright screen ; surprisingly big sound

Treble could be better controlled ; lack of format and music service compatibility
