Philips Streamium WACS7500 Music System

 

If a complete wireless music system sounds like a good idea, Philips' new WACS7500 is one to check out.

The essential premise is simple. The Centre has an 80GB hard disk on board to which you can rip CDs using its top-mounted slot-loading CD player, complete with track names, artist names and even album art picked up using a preinstalled Gracenote...

Philips WACS7500 review

 

Promises much - CD player; FM radio; hard-disk music server; wireless distribution – but falls down on sonic performance

Great looks, good materials, fine build ; thoughtful and effective way of collating and sending music around the house without wires

Sound is inadequate across the board

Solves one problem ('what do I do with all these wires?'), but creates another ('how do I get a good wireless sound?')

Philips WACS7500 review

 

'Free your music' is the promise from Philips with its latest Streamium product, the Philips WACS7500.

A well-featured and expandable system for playing music around the house, the Philips WACS7500 may appeal with its relatively minimalist looks and cable-free installation. The styling simplification is not shared with the user interface, however, which...

A self-contained music streamer, the Philips WACS7500 allows you to rip CDs to an 80GB hard drive, then stream music wirelessly to secondary units. You can add up to four more units, and it's capable of playing MP3, WMA and PCM formats. Philips...

Philips Streamium WACS-7500

 

A stylish,functional, music system with a brilliant sound. All the clutter of CD's not longer a problem, no searching rooms for the elusive cd you are desperate to listen to as its there on the hard drive which can be acessed in two rooms (at present)

Keys on the remote very 'spongy' therefore not making contact with the stations immediately. Instruction book not user friendly

Philips Streamium WACS-7500

 

I like that you can access your music from any room. I like the design as it fit in with modern designs. Overall a good buy.

Setting up was difficult, could be more user friendly. It would be better if you could put your CD's in the smaller systems used in the other rooms as well.

Philips Streamium WACS-7500

 

It's fairly easy to install

The batteries in the remote only laste 1 week and it was hardly used. The station has repeatedly lost its time settings but the centre station is ok. The other station has also frozen at some point and wouldn't work from the remote or by using the...
