Philips aims to make it easier for audiophiles to enjoy their music around their homes. It has updated its Streamium range of consumer Wi-Fi products with a wireless music station and a network music player.
The Philips NP1100 Streamium Network Music Player wirelessly connects to a PC and stream music from a PC or internet radio for playback through your home stereo system. The stylish white device has a large LCD display and comes with a remote control for selecting albums and audio sources.
Philips has also launched a new version of its Streamium wireless hub. The WAS6050 Streamium Wireless Music Station is a matching compact white unit device with four 15 Watt RMS speakers. It is designed for consumers who want to be able to enjoy digital audio from their PC in any room of house, without the need for a home stereo system.
The new model is significantly smaller than previous Streamium models Philips has sold: it weighs a smidgen over 1kg and is 15.8 wide by 15.8cm across.
Using the WAS6050's remote control, users can scroll through and select albums and specific songs and browse their music collection by album, artist, genre or track. Music is streamed around the home using an 802.11g wireless connection.
The WAS6050 Streamium Wireless Music Station is available now for £149.99. Availability and pricing details for the NP1100 Streamium Network Music Player have yet to be announced.
