Philips Streamium WACS700/37

10 January 2009
  • Summary: The stylish Philips Streamium WACS700/37 can stream digital music throughout your home without a PC, but considering its high price, it's hard to overlook some basic feature and performance shortfalls.
  • Pros: The Philips Streamium WACS700/37 is an expandable two-room wireless digital audio system that is compatible with--but doesn't require--a PC or a Wi-Fi network. The server and client units have integrated speakers and an AM/FM tuner, and the main unit includes a CD player/ripper, a 40GB internal hard drive, and a two-way remote with an LCD. Flexible playback options allow for the same music in multiple rooms, multiple different streams, and a "follow" function from roo...
  • Cons: The device's format compatibility is poor--it doesn't play DRM-protected audio files, it can't stream Internet radio or Rhapsody, and it can't broadcast music from CDs. The PC connectivity is clunky, CD ripping is slow, and the 40GB hard disk is small compared to similarly priced music servers.

Philips WACS700 Wireless Music System

Sound & Vision Magazine
14 September 2006
  • Excerpt: Everyone likes the idea of wholehouse audio. Who doesn't want the ability to access their music library in any room of their home? It's in the implementation that things get tricky. Do you invest a couple of grand in a dedicated audio server for your gear rack, plus amplification and speakers for each room and all that wire you'll have to run through the walls to connect everything?

27 August 2007
  • Summary: Multi-room Wi-Fi systems are great if you’re blessed with a bulging wallet, but for most of us, these nuggets of gadget greatness are as affordable as a platinum-encrusted PS3.

Expert Review

20 October 2014
  • Summary: Den nya tidens musiksystem med trådlös överföring mellan centralenhet och mottagare. Centralenheten med cd-spelare, receiver och högtalare har hårddisk på 40 gb som rymmer det mesta av musiksamlingen. Med upp till 5 separata mottagare kan du välja vad som ska spelas i olika rum från hårddisken. Ett flertal ljudinställningar kan göras. Det saknas bett i höga och låga frekvensområden, men ljudet är ändå bättre än väntat med tanke på det kompakta formatet. Höjd 30 cm.

Проба музыкального центра Philips WACS700

6 August 2007
  • Conclusion: Казалось бы, почти идеальное устройство. Однако нельзя не отметить некоторые ограничения, например, на источники музыки для её трансляции, и на форматы воспроизводимых файлов (поддерживаются только MP3 и WMA). И, наконец, немаленькая цена - чуть больше тысячи долларов США. Считать ли всё это серьёзными недостатками - решать в конечном счёте потребителю. И при этом не стоит забывать, что сейчас на рынке нет ничего даже близко похожего на Philips WACS700.
