Nice price!!!!
#3
Great price a whole £2.39 cheaper than a week ago from Scan , this is the proper page to get the £37.60 http://www.scan.co.uk/todayonly/
#4
wow this is cheap. i paid £150 for mine back in september - ouch. i would hardly describe it as plug and play though. it took me quite a while to get it fully up and running, and even now I can't get it to work wirelessly. And I'm doing a computing degree lol
#5
what encryption does the wireless support mate?

WPA and WEP?
#6
I can vouch for this being great...does exactly the same as the 1000 and is a fifth of the price...

..if you're fine with a small LCD screen and have wireless broadband then go for it. That's the only big difference!
#7
This does essentially the same thing but has a built in speaker as well (so no need for other speakers) although it does support plugging into other powered speakers as well.

It is more expensive but still a great deal!

The only reason I mention it is because my bro brought one and we have tested it out and the quality is fantastic for the price. The small built in speaker is much better than we thought it would be!

It also supports streaming from a NAS (Network Attache Storage) Hard drive apparently.

Its only WEP, so if you want your network WAP-secured, you will have to go for the Pinnacle/Roku Soundbridge 1001 model. Otherwise, good deal and nice gadget.

Not so - the latest firmware supports WPA

Hopefully a typing error but just to correct you WAP is mobile phone internet browsing, WPA is the encryption protocol.

The latest firmware enables WPA support I believe. Certainly Pinnacle are touting it as WPA enabled on their website

Clicky this link

Moreover, it’s future proof thanks to 100% support of Windows Media DRM and WEP/WPA encryption.

Price is plummeting lately on this device and have to say its a fantastic price. I have ordered 1 (nearly went for 2) for spare room. (squeezebox in my living room)

Damn it's a pity it's not their Showcenter 200, I'm looking for one that streams video for Xmas: either the Showcenter 200 or the Buffalo Linktheater. Not sure which :\
#16
dwl99 is right, just double checked and the website clearly states that WPA is indeed supported with the latest firmware installed. thats good news, just ordered one for christmas = internet radio and mp3 streaming for the kitchen, yay.

I think it's simple to set up. Plug it in, it asks you if you need a password for your wireless network, enter that and you're connected. If there are any s/w updates it will tell you and it updates itself and reboots.

Configure whatever library you're using to see the SB so you can stream music. Search for radio stations and you're away. It really isn't difficult and there's a great support forum. You can also configure it so that it plays [url]www.pandora.com[/url].

You can search for radio stations and see user ratings online and add them as favourites by going to [url]www.radioroku.com[/url]. Simple! :thumbsup:

I've got one playing through a normal hifi (bedroom) and the other playing through the Home Cinema system in the lounge. Any speakers with an amp and AV-in will do.

Ah okay so I guess initially I'll have to turn WPA encryption off to get this baby updated. Then it will work with WPA, so turn it back on and enter password when it asks for it.

When you say setup library do you mean using their software or can you just stream it through Windows media player? This is the bit Im confused about, suppose it will be easy when it arrives :-D

Dunno if I can wait til xmas day tho :-(

It depends what version of software comes on the SB when you get it. Bear in mind, I have the Roku branded M1001 SB which is the one up from this (and £75) but there's little difference between them (apart from the display size). The first one I got, I found it easiest to connect via ethernet and u/g, as you say. Then I configured it for WPA wireless. However, the 2nd one I bought last week already had WPA enabled so I connected wirelessly immediately.

The SB will stream music from WMP (you have to enable sharing in WMP and allow the SB - very simple) or iTunes (I 'think' you need to d/l something to see iTunes). I've read on the support site that other libraries also work but I haven't played with those myself.

So, as soon as the SB is on your network, it automatically looks for libraries (invisible to you). eg. If I'm using WMP11, it will display "Toxic Lemon's Library". Select it and all non-DRM music will be displayed and ready to play.

My set up and reason for purchasing this was to play internet radio with the PC off (superior to DAB for me) and to put all my CDs onto a digital library (NAS server) so that they are all selectable/playable with the PC off. Now the CDs are in a box somewhere in a cupboard! :thumbsup:

Works for me! You do have to have your PC on and d/l a couple of small apps, but follow the instructions exactly on the long post HERE :thumbsup:

Yes, separate speakers and an amp with AV-in. A hifi will do.

You need separate everything! This tiny box only gets the music and presents it to a line-out connector. The intention is to put this next to your hi-fi system and connect it. This way you don't have to have a stack of CDs around to choose a song: you're making all of your music library on your computer available to your hi-fi.

I picked one up from ebuyer.com the other week. Initially couldn't get it to pick up my wireless router because it was 2 rooms away. Thankfully had a spare (who has spares of such things??! :whistling: ) so I put that in the corner of the same room.

It works quite well with my laptop running FireFly, which is the Open-Source music server software required to make my iTunes library available. And the 3,000 radio stations from radioroku.com are great too!

I totally recommend this product, certainly at around £40! :-D

Acoustic Energy Aego-M 2.1 speakers are very good pair with this.

Great info. Didnt realise it had an ethernet port!!! Will do that then rather than messing with my wireless encryption. Dont use itunes so not a problem.
Sounds relatively simple, internet radio stations will be a bonus!!!

Now how do I steal it before xmas day???? :whistling:

May have to disconnect TV from amp to free up ports for this. Will worry about that when it comes :)
