Philips unveils wi-fi hi-fi music streamer

Philips wi-fi hi-fi

If you’ve been lusting after one of those swanky new hi-fi units, but can’t afford to splash out on a Sonos, there’s a cheaper alternative now being touted by Philips.
Its UPnP (Universal Plug and Play) SLA5520i wi-fi audio link sells for a measly 99 quid and should help liberate all those tunes from your PC. The unit, part of the brand’s Connected Planet range, supports , WMA and protected WMA-DRM music purchased online, and to add to the fun, it can also be used to access thousands of internet radio stations, both WMA and MP3 broadcasts. Just hook the thing up to your amp or receiver via standard phono connections and you’re away.
Buyers will also be able to access Philips own smorgasboard of Streamium services, which includes LAUNCHcast, Radio Free Virgin, Andante Radio and Playhouse Radio. Royal Philips Electronics of the Netherlands, you spoil us. Now how long before we see a video version? And what has happened to that long delayed Philips branded Media Centre PC?
