Summary: I got the NP2500/37 a week ago, and I'm really enjoying having it. It was quite easy to set up: you just plug the RCA cables into your stereo, plug in the unit, and it searches for a Wi-Fi signal (or you can connect it with an ethernet cable). It immediately found my system, I entered my security key (on its full-size remote), and I immediately could stream internet radio stations through my stereo or hook to Rhapsody.
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. Setting up the system was easy - but trying to register it on-line so I could use the Philips club to manage my favorites was horrible.
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 Philips NP2900/37 WiFi Internet Radio Network Music Player with Rhapsody (Black) and the Logitech Squeezebox Boom All-in-One Network Music Player / Wi-Fi Internet Radio . This NP2500 is for the most part identical to the NP2900 with the exception of the built-in speakers which this unit lacks.

Summary: I've been working from home a fair amount and have a netbook that has my music library loaded on it. I keep my music library on a netbook as opposed to an Ipod because I rip my music using a lossless format to preserve the quality of the sound (I love classical music and have top of the line headphones so want to preserve the detail of the original recordings).
Summary: The Streamium NP2500 by phillips is essentially a great internet radio player that works extremely well plugged directly into a router or set up on a secure wireless network to play anywhere. I had a devil of a time with the "Twonky" Server, so I forgot about that. I talked with some friends who use the full version of Twonky, and they had the same experience as I had with out of the box "half" versions of "twonky"; As soon as the server is up, it falls over within a few...

Summary: IN THE BOX Streamium Music Player NP2500 Remote control w/2 AAA batteries 1 RCA cable 1 AC power adapter TwonkyMedia CD ROM Manuals and start guide STREAMING FROM THE INTERNET After getting the NP2500 out of the box it took me about 5 minutes to connect it, set it up and start using it.
Summary: Without question, streaming content from the internet and a computer in your house, is becoming more and more popular. I have been doing it for years. The idea is that you have as much as music as you like on your computer, and your computer can serve that content out to devices such as this Philips Networked Music Player, and it works quite nicely. This item includes software, to install on your computer.
Summary: This item is pretty cool. I have it hooked up to my TV & I can play any type of music I want via the Internet Music. I can also listen to all of my itunes music since I installed the TwonkyMedia CD that came in the package. I really like the display for this player & it's easy to navigate although it is a bit slower than I'd like and it's froze up on me several times. It was very easy to set up & I had music playing within a few minutes. I would recommend this player.
Summary: The Philips NP25000/37 Network Music Player is a sleek and stylish music player with a nice black sheen and colorful LCD that is user-friendly. Installation was a breeze and the sound quality was just amazing. Digital out via coaxial cable and simple. You literally get stations all over the world with great audio. You also get a 1 month free Rhapsody subscription which is very cool.
