This little device has been discontinued for some time but is still worth mentioning, as it was among the first devices to fit into this category of sound equipment. It was this model that laid the basis for Philips’ first endeavour into media hubs, the SLA 5500 [below].
The device supports MP3 and WMA files and can receive streams directly from internet radio stations or from an uPnP compatible media server such as TVersity. It has a built-in wireless ethernet and no wired input. Output is a mini-jack. The remote control is fairly well laid out and of better quality than most in this price group. Both devices suffer from a very poor LCD display.
