Philips WAC3500D Wireless Audio Centre


Complete with iPod dock, this nifty little music centre is a great introduction to wireless audio networking and streaming.

With its main unit and two separate speakers, the WAC3500D looks like a traditional micro hi-fi, as opposed to the more daring upright design of the WACS7000, which boasts built-in speakers. As a result it's nowhere near as attractive as its pricier...

You can have all the music on one device and create you own playlists

A bit too much to learn, not a problem for technology savvy individuals. I wouldn't recommend it my grandmother.

Philips WAC3500D


stores massive amounts of music and the basic instructions are very straightforward. I really liked the the playlist feature on the UPnP which sends music wirelessly from my p.c.

Sometimes a bit confusing to navigate around the sons on the hard drive but I think I need to play about with it a bit more
