  • The stylish Philips Streamium WACS700/37 can stream digital music throughout your home without a PC, but considering its high price, its hard to overlook some basic feature and performance shortfalls.

  • Despite the niggles I loved the convenience of being able to access my entire PC's music collection in several rooms in the house at once. The system is very easy to set up at first, especially for those without a PC, and though it doesn't boast the best ...

  • Stylish design, Choice of audio from each station, Easy to rip CDs
  • Difficult to configure into an existing wireless setup, Low quality display screens, Poorly laid out remote
  • The WACS700 is an easy to set up wireless music serving system, but its not without its quirks. If youre more of a Hi-Fi person than a PC person its definitely worth contemplating, but those with more PC networking nouce could replicate the WAC700...

  • Competition-quashing price; Simple to use
  • Sound could be better; Extra satellites will cost you £200
  • It’s not going to uproot any trees, but the WACS700 delivers effortless networked hi-fi in a very pretty package ...

  • Easy process involved in CD-ripping; solid build
  • Retro 80s design; lethargic CD-ripping; sound quality could be better
  • Audiophiles will want to look elsewhere, but beginners in the world of music streaming should find enough here to keep them entertained. Despite a few technical annoyances, the WACS700 streams music successfully and is more affordable than the obvious...

  • Decent storage capacity, Excellent features, Good sound quality
  • Not Mac-compatible
  • Philips new multi-room WACS7000 Wi-Fi music system demonstrates that you dont need to be a computer whiz to install a wireless music network. The latest Streamium plug n play music system replaces the WACS700 and is a surprisingly easy model to mas...

  • Compact, can burn straight to the units hard drive without need for computer
  • Styling, no support for DRM enabled tracks, sound not great compared to what youve probably already got
  • With MP3 players allowing you to take your music with your wherever you go, more and more people are looking to do the same in the home

  • Abstract:  As the burgeoning Streamium concept proves, Philips is making full use of WiFi wireless networking to deliver cable-free music throughout the home. The WACS700 Wireless Music Center is a central music server, whose 40GB hard disk is big enough to hold...

  • Abstract:  Philips dispose à son catalogue de la WACS 7000, une chaîne hi-fi un peu particulière. Sa référence complète, Wireless Streamium Audio Center et Satellite, nous le laisse dailleurs entendre. Il sagit là en fait dun système audio décomposé en une uni...
