Summary: Hi, If anyone is looking at this unit to connect to Rhapsody, you need to know that Rhapsody changed their service in July 2011. This REQUIRED the device manufacturers to update the firmware for the hardware. From what I can tell, Philips is no longer supporting these Rhapsody units.
Summary: What a great gadget! I have it set up wirelessly in a 1600 sq ft townhose and it works great. My computer/music source is upstairs and this divice is downstairs. The music streams through walls, etc. with no problem. I highly recommend this product.
Summary: I owned a SqueezeBox player (by Slim Devices) for years and we thoroughly enjoyed it. It was smart, easy to use and sounded great for casual music listening. The Slim Server software had a couple of flaws, but nothing to write home about.
Summary: The NP2500/37 mostly works OK. I enjoy the internet radio which is easy to use. I have found the included Twonky server software to be pretty lame - hard to keep going and mostly just a pain. I may look for an alternative server.
Summary: This media player has most the things I wanted. It streams quality music from my PC to my stereo. The worst part about this media player is the Twonky software you install on your computer. It "will not" organize tracks in the same order as on the CD (by track number).
Summary: After initial firmware upgrade (using wired connection), Wi-Fi installation went smooth. Device is quite easy to use, a lot of shoutcast radio stations bring even more fun. One thing I don't like is the way the device stretches cover art on its display.

Summary: I've owned this unit for over a year now and have been relatively pleased with it. I own this unit along with the and the . This NP2500 is for the most part identical to the NP2900 with the exception of the built-in speakers which this unit lacks.
