Philips Streamium NP2900 review: Philips Streamium NP2900


Philips Streamium NP2900

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,, or Slacker; included remote occasionally confusing.

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.

Philips delivers an attractive and capable networked media player.

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

Philips' classy new Streamium holds the key to freeing your PC's music collection. But has it got enough to unlock your wallet?

Limited format and music service compatibility are the only things between the Streamium and Hot Buy status

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...

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.
