  • Conclusion: Free your music with the most stylish streaming player on the market today. It’s not quite as speedy or smart as the Logitech Boom but it’s simple, reliable and delivers where it counts in sonic superiority.
  • Pros: If Streamium were an element, it would be heavier than heavy metal and lighter than air guitar, with the lustre of a freshly minted gold record. The NP2900 has a meaty 30W of amplification and uses smart digital processing to turn plain old MP3 (or WMA, AAC, FLAC or Ogg Vobis) files back into real, room-filling music. The Twonky media server and wireless systems are painless to set up, ripping music from ugly PCs and hard drives to the skinny, living room-friendly Str...
  • Cons: When you’ve got a terabyte drive groaning at the seams with music, you need to be able to navigate it easily – and here the Streamium struggles. It’s slow to browse albums (especially when you’ve got artwork visible) and occasionally shuffles the order of playlists at random. Also, you can’t access smart Web 2.0 music services such as Last.fm, Pandora and Rhapsody, as found on similarly-priced rival Logitech Squeezebox Boom.
