Summary: "Free your music" indeed. Of course in order to use any product it needs to at least be functioning properly. When I received the first Streamium the display was not working properly.

After 10 days in use, the Streamium finally recognized my networked NAS and offers full accessibility to all of my music files. However, the website interface is still unavailable to me so navigation with the remote control is the only option and extremely time consuming. As of the current date (Aug.
Summary: PHILIPS NP1100 Philips war mit einigen Reiseradios mit Kurzwellenteil damals auf dem Markt vertreten, ich selbst habe als ersten preiswerten Einsteigerempfänger auch ein Gerät aus dem Hause PHILIPS gehabt, sodass mich der NP1100 zurück zu den Wurzeln meiner DXer-Anfänge brachte. Natürlich heute mit einem viel moderneren Design aber in gewohnter Qualität.
