Philips Streamium WACS700/37

 

Philips's wireless music center will run you the better part of a grand, putting it in direct competition with the digital music kingpin, Sonos. Is this Streamium worth a premium?

The Philips Streamium WACS700/37 is an expandable two-room wireless digital audio system that is compatible with--but doesn't require--a PC or a Wi-Fi network. The server and client units have integrated speakers and an AM/FM tuner, and the main unit...

The device's format compatibility is poor--it doesn't play DRM-protected audio files, it can't stream Internet radio or Rhapsody, and it can't broadcast music from CDs. The PC connectivity is clunky, CD ripping is slow, and the 40GB hard disk is small...

The stylish Philips Streamium WACS700/37 can stream digital music throughout your home without a PC, but considering its high price, it's hard to overlook some basic feature and performance shortfalls.

Philips Streamium WACS700

 

Custom installers are getting rich on whole house audio-hardwired, hard-drive based systems used to access favorite music from a bunch of home locations. But mainstream electronics biggie Philips believes these pleasures shouldn't just be restricted to...

Because Wi-Fi operates in the busy 2.4GHz frequency range, Philips warns users to keep these products away from possible interference makers like wireless routers, cordless phones, microwave ovens and plasma TVs. Also, Wi-Fi signals don't travel well...

Philips WACS700/05 Wireless Music Station

 

Want to share your music round your house without wires? The Philips Wireless Music Station will let you do just that.

Being able to play whatever music you like without having to hunt through hundreds of badly organized CDs has always been one of the great benefits of MP3 players. But this system takes the convenience to a whole new level. You don’t even have to...

Philips WACS700 review

 

Philips slips its thrifty multi-room Wi-Fi jukebox onto the market. But can it compete with the omnipotent Sonos Digital Music System?

It’s not going to uproot any trees, but the WACS700 delivers effortless networked hi-fi in a very pretty package

Wireless is more

Competition-quashing price ; Simple to use

Philips WACS700 Wireless Music Centre

 

The WACS700 Wireless Music Centre is an easy to set up music serving system, but it's not without its quirks.

Stylish design. Choice of audio from each station. Easy to rip CDs.

Difficult to configure into an existing wireless setup. Low quality display screens. Poorly laid out remote.

The WACS700 is an easy to set up wireless music serving system, but it's not without its quirks. If you're more of a Hi-Fi person than a PC person it's definitely worth contemplating, but those with more PC networking nouce could replicate the WAC700's...
