  • Excerpt: A self-contained music streamer, the Philips WACS7500 allows you to rip CDs to an 80GB hard drive, then stream music wirelessly to secondary units. You can add up to four more units, and it's capable of playing MP3, WMA and PCM formats.

  • Summary: A well-featured and expandable system for playing music around the house, the Philips WACS7500 may appeal with its relatively minimalist looks and cable-free installation. The styling simplification is not shared with the user interface, however, which could be more intuitive for family use. Sound quality is best described as adequate, having average definition, well tuned for background duties rather than musical escapism.

What Hi-Fi?

  • Excerpt: On paper, the Philips WACS7500 is the answer to every house-proud householder's dreams. It's a central 'hub' unit, tricked out with an 80GB hard disk drive, CD player and FM radio, able wirelessly to send music to as many as five 'client' units around the home (œ700 buys the main unit and one client). It's simple to use, too. Load a CD into the main unit, and it's quickly copied to the hard disk. Compression ratios of between 128 and 320kbps are claimed.
  • Pros: Great looks, good materials, fine build, thoughtful and effective way of collating and sending music around the house without wires
  • Cons: Sound is inadequate across the board

  • Summary: Systemet består av en sentral enhet med integrert harddisk og cd-spiller. Skal du fylle den 80 GB store disken med musikk, må du enten overføre cd-plater enkeltvis eller koble anlegget til et eksisterende musikkanlegg og overføre musikken den veien. Selv med nettverkskabel tok det over et døgn å overføre knapt 70 GB med musikk, og den manuelle rippingen er også håpløst langsom. Tilkoblingen ble brutt flere ganger, og det var ikke lett å fortsette der man slapp.
  • Pros: God lyd, Muligheter for streaming, Design som tåler dagens lys
  • Cons: Langsom overføring, Nettverksproblemer

  • Summary: Ce système audio sans fil propose une approche très intéressante pour monter un ensemble multipièces assez facilement chez soi. Le son est très bon et les possibilités nombreuses. Reste, que l’ergonomie manque un peu et que l’ensemble se révèle être nettement moins intuitif que le système Sonos Digital Music System.
  • Pros: Le design, La qualité audio de l’ensemble, L’accès aux webradio, Numérisation des CD Audio, Fonction « Follow Me » et « Broadcast », Kit de montage mural livré
  • Cons: L’impossibilité d’ajouter ses propres webradios, Fonction Follow Me disponible qu’avec la musique du disque dur interne
