Philips Streamium wireless micro Hifi system cuts a dash

Looking rather dandy with its shiny black control panel and matt black speaker gauze is Philips’ new Streamium wireless micro hi-fi system.

Measuring up at a mere 90mm thick – and thus ideal for wall mounting – the micro hi-fi system lets you wirelessly stream music from your PC/MAC computer or slap in a USB stuck to play back MP3/WMA tunes.

It plays CDs

The Streamium can also play back time honoured CDs of the MP3/WMA-CD, CD and CD-RW variety courtesy of a slot on top of the device, play back iTunes music and access thousands of free Internet Radio Stations. There’s also a FM tuner on board.

Touch screen controls on the 3.5-inch display let you select your songs, adjust volume settings and fiddle about with the EQ, and there’s a remote control lobbed in, so there’s no need to get out of bed.

Drum’n’bass hardcore clubbers may want to look elsewhere as the Philips can only muster 2x10W RMS total output power – enough for a bedroom/kitchen/small living room, but not so good for a gabba hardcore party.

The Philips Streamium sMCi298 system looks rather good to our eyes, and can be bagged for around £200.
