Philips SLA5520i

 

With its bargain basement price you'd forgive the SLA5520i for looking a little low rent, but as it turns out the silver picture frame design is actually pretty swish. Once turned on though, the small blue display lacks sharpness and is impossible to...

Dirt cheap, sounds good

Limited connections, poor screen, no Mac support

Philips Streamium SLA5520I

 

Wirelessly streaming audio from your PC and broadband connection can be costly and fiddly. This cheap and cheerful Philips device that may help.

While the SLA5520i doesn't have the breadth of features of some of its rivals, such as the ability to play BBC radio or its own speakers, it does the job of streaming music from your PC rather well.

CHEAP AND CHEERFUL

 

For the price this is a decent music streamer. I've heard better ones, but for 80 (which is what I paid) you'll be hard pushed to do better.

Price ; Easy to set up ; Good sound quality ; Nice small design

More sophisticated ones on the market ; No digital outputs
