Product Information

Get easy access to thousands of free Internet radio stations with the Philips WAS6050 Streamium music system.

The beauty of this Philips Wireless Music Station is that it uses complex technology to give you easy access to a massive range of music, anywhere in your home. Simply "tune in" the WAS6050 to your home network hub and, provided its wireless, you can enjoy Internet radio in any room of your home. Furthermore, you can also stream music from your PC over the wireless network, giving you access to all your stored music in any room.

As handy as Internet radio and streaming is, the Philips WAS6050 takes it much further than many of its rivals. Link the WAS6050 to a full Streamium system and you can build a wireless multi-room system which, through My Room, My Music, lets you listen to different music in each room, the same in each room, or follow you from room to room - perfect for listening to uninterrupted radio as you move around your home. This Philips Streamium portable is also very easy to navigate. Browse your collection by album, artist, genre or track, just as you'd do with your MP3 player or iPod. Similarly, accessing a massive range of Internet radio stations is very straight forward.

Although small, the Philips WAS6050 offers surprisingly powerful sound quality. The 15 watt Class D amp powers 4 speakers for a punchy, spacious sound quality.

For plug and play music in any room, the Philips WAS6050 makes the most of your wireless home network.

The M&S radio shows as £89 at the checkout, even at the point when it askes for the credit card details to be entered. :thinking:

Looks very much like the MusicPal interface which I have grown to love.

Amongst the good reviews is this bad review on Amazon.

If you are thinking of buying an Internet Radio then don't buy this. It may be ok as part of a Streamium System, but as a stand alone internet radio it is almost useless. To start with it is fiddly to set up to connect to your wireless network. Next it does not (as stated in the manual) return to the last sound source when you switch it on from standby. After navigating through several layers of menu to get to your chosen radio station it spends ages buffering and then frequently drops out. This is not a problem with my network; my Logitech Squeezebox operates perfectly in the same location on the same network and is a doddle to setup and use.

Attempts at contacting Philips Support by email have been futile. After their initial response 'The behaviour of your unit is weird' any follow up communication to Support, using the specified email address and reference number, results in an automated response saying that the email address is unmanned and instructing to return to their support site and start again...........and again.....

Do not buy it!!!!


However the manual does seem to note that this device has a wired ethernet port, which may be prefereable if you use power-over-ethernet(homplugetc) or have a rj45ed house.

Your right it is a smarter looking system :thumbsup:

Does anybody know if this syncs with the WACS7000 system?

There is a low user base for these systems and getting correct info from sales guys is near impossible.
#9
No idea. If anyone has one, perhaps you want to look at this free streaming software which works well for me with Spotify?

Great deal, great price! decent output too! :thumbsup:
#11
my advice is stay away from philips
#12
Bearing in mind that the add-on units for WACS700 normally cost over a 100 quid, this is a good deal.

Voted hot.

Keep going, it shows the discount on the final screen before you have to confirm. :thumbsup:

I see it takes batteries. I bet it will eat through those. EDIT Sorry that;s the remote control!

Will it work with my WAC700 mothership?

Be warned the Streamium range is addictive!
After seeing my mates Streamium setup I started off with a WAS700 a couple of years ago.
I now own WAS700 (two), WAC700 (just sold), WAS7500 and a WAC7500. All were auction purchases from that site that rhymes with hay.

Whilst the WAS6050 can connect to a PC media streamer it does work better when connecting to one of the Philips Streamium centres (WAC700, WAC7000 or WAC7500).

The Streamium range does have its annoyances but in terms of streaming music it does what it says on the tin.

The Philips forum is worth a look at for anything relating to the Streamium range (including WAS6050) : http://www.streamiumcafe.com/vBulletin/forumdisplay.php?f=90

Ta very much. Have a WACS700 & 3 WAS700s myself (gibberish to most) and they have cleared the house of CDs and assorted stereos and have a nice clean look.

Having said that it is not much different to having decent ipod docks in each room and once the radio switches from analogue to digital (2012 I think) I suspect there will be a lot of dumping of old stereo systems. So much for reducing waste that we hear so much about from this government. Rant over.
