    Sonos Play:3 review

    By 26 July 2011

    Sonos Bundle 250 with Sonos Controller CR200 review

    By 14 October 2009

    We make no qualms about Sonos here at Pocket-lint. We think it's an excellent system that allows you to listen to your music from a single source in multiple locations around the house. It's expensive, yes, but then the experience is such a nice one that...

    Linksys by Cisco Wireless Home Audio - First Look review

    By 21 January 2009

    The Linksys by Cisco Wireless Home Audio system is a cross between the Sonos music system and the Philips Streamium range. But can the company famed for routers and those phones at CTU in 24 crack the home audio market? We were shown the company's new...

    Philips Streamium MCi500H micro Hi-Fi system review

    By 16 January 2009

    Domestic Hi-Fi has taken something of a battering of late, with the growth of personal media players and the shift towards docking stations, and the subsequent growth in digital music collections on your personal computer. So can the snappily-named MCi500H...

    Philips Streamium WACS7500 review

    By 14 May 2008

    When the first Steamium launched, we have to admit we weren't impressed, a poor overly plastic design complemented with average sound meant for us, it was £600 not well spent. So can the follow-up, the WACS7500 make amends? We get listening to find out....

    Sonos ZoneBridge BR100 review

    By 10 January 2008

    There is no doubt about it, the Sonos Digital Music System is impressive. The trouble is getting your music from your computer to your Sonos music system is a bit of a work around. What if then, there was a device that connected to your PC or Mac and...

    Philips WACS7000 media streamer review

    By 23 November 2007

    If we were to describe a typical piece of multimedia-based hardware from Philips in a sentence, you’d probably laud the consistently impressive build quality and style yet bemoan the often high price and omission of often important extra features. This...

    Philips WACS700 Wireless Media Center review

    By 29 April 2006

    Philips' answer to the problem is the WACS700 Wireless Music Center that allows you to wireless stream music around your house to an remote station that you connect to the system. The devices, which consist of a main base unit and remote stations all...

    Sonos ZP80 wireless streaming media system review

    By 19 April 2006

    Before we go any further we have to tell you that we love the original Sonos system, the ZP100. Awarded as Best Home Entertainment Gadget of 2005 by us last year, there is little to fault with the system that allows you to wirelessly stream music to any...
