Philips launches SLA5520i Wireless Audio Link (3/4/2006)

Liberate your PC music collection and enjoy Internet radio with the ‘Plug n Play’ SLA5520i wireless audio link

Philips is expanding its family of Connected Planet products with the introduction of the SLA5520i wireless audio link. The SLA5520i wirelessly streams digital music stored on a PC to a Hi-Fi elsewhere in the home using an 802.11g (Wi-Fi) connection and also provides access to the huge number of radio stations available on the Internet.

The SLA5520i easily integrates a Hi-Fi or music system into your wireless network and uses UPnP™ (Universal Plug and Play) protocol, ensuring it always connects with other UPnP devices.

For unrivalled flexibility, the SLA5520i supports MP3, WMA and protected WMA-DRM music purchased online, which can all be stored on the PC and streamed to a music system – using the PC as a hub and conveniently keeping all music in one location.

The SLA5520i delivers access to the wide rang of Internet radio stations, supporting both WMA and MP3 broadcasts. Users can also access pre-configured Streamium Internet services from Philips’ online partners including LAUNCHcast, Radio Free Virgin, Andante Radio and Playhouse Radio without needing to connect to their PC. Conveniently, it is possible to select music stations by genre or country – personalising the listening experience.

Stylishly designed, slim and compact, the SLA5520i connects direct to a music system using analogue phono cables and features a crisp blue LCD display enabling simple navigation. Furthermore, the device is fully upgradeable with new features, formats and services, all automatically downloaded from the Internet over a Broadband connection.

The perfect wish-list product for anyone looking to listen to their library of PC music or web radio on a Hi-Fi or music system, the SLA5520i is available in stores now for an approximate average selling price of £99.
