Hello trickyricky, welcome to the forums. Please see the links in my signature for help on posting deals. :) I've merged this into the amazon UK merchant, which is already on our forums. Added an image and the price and retailer name to the thread title.

Ebuyer have this listed at 39.99, though it's currently out of stock - they're showing 285 for pre-order though.

Edit: they're apparently expecting delivery today.

People got all excited over at thedvdforums about bigpockets selling the model up from this the M1001 FOR £46.99 but when they got delivered they were the homemusic which has the obviously smaller display size, no ethernet connection, no WPA encryption support, less function buttons on the remote control, 1 less sd card reader and has no optical and co-ax outputs but the M1001 is over £100. Also there may be a problem running this on Vista?

They both support b&g wireless but the homemusic dosn't play ball with Bonjour and Slimserver.

not a bad price if you can live without any of the above features, The dealbreaker for me would be the digital output and the WPA.

The M1001 can be had from expansys for £84.95. Branded Roku, but seems to be the same thing.

Does anyone know if this will connect directly to sharerd music folders on the PC or does it need an intermediary program such as WMP 11 etc ?

Why is this voted hot when you can get it £5 cheaper at Scan.co.uk?..

Do a search on avforums for 'scan free postage', and it should take you to the link where you can sign up with a Scan account to get free postage...

...which is exactly what I've just done, before ordering said Soundbridge...can't wait. Should be here by Tuesday. A shame in a way that they send it by CityLink when Royal Mail would have done - would have been here by tomorrow!!

Does it play FLAC?


Yes , it does play FLAC but you need to install a piece of media software.

• Firefly supports many audio formats - MP3, AAC, and WMA. FLAC and OggVorbis are supported on Windows, and Apple Lossless is supported on the Mac.
• Firefly runs on Windows, Mac and Linux; and it is open source software which allows for community participation.

Here is further instruction.
Choosing Your Software
There are several ways to use SoundBridge:
1. With Microsoft’s Windows Media Connect as your music server. You’ll need Windows XP Service Pack 2 installed on
your computer, and you’ll also need Windows Media Connect and Windows Media DRM 10 installed. They are
available as free downloads from h t tp://www.microsoft.co m . This choice is best for users who wish to play most
standard formats of music, excluding AAC files.
2. With Apple’s iTunes as your music server. You’ll need iTunes software to be installed and running on your PC or
Mac. You may find the free iTunes software at h t tp://www.apple.com/itunes / . This choice is best for users who wish
to play most standard formats of music, excluding WMA files.
3. With a music server such as Musicmatch Jukebox running UPnP Av. This is best for users who are running a version
of Windows earlier than Windows XP/Service Pack 2 (such as Windows 2000, Windows Me, etc.).
4. With the downloadable SlimServer open source music server (see below for download instructions). This software
is best for users who already have a large library of FLAC, Ogg-Vorbis or Apple Lossless files and do not wish to
convert them to WMA, MP3 or AAC format.

We highly suggest that you use iTunes or Windows Media Connect for seamless integration with your SoundBridge, and
support for SoundBridge’s complete feature set. However, if you choose to use SlimServer as a music client, please
follow the steps below to get the most out of your SoundBridge experience.

I am using just for the Internet Radio function so far. All in all I'm 99% happy with it so on the strength of this I ordered another one today. I may order another one. For the internet radio capability the main weakness is that it does not support real media format (very popular format in the far east). I have the Logik IR100 as well. For the IR100, the Receiva web site allows the set up of "My Folder" and you can place a streaming audio url there. This capability does not exist on the [url]www.radioroku.com[/url].

The main strength for me on this unit over the IR100 is that it does not hang on boot up. (The IR100 has a tendency to hang if you switch off the mains and switch it on again and then you have to wait at least 10 mins or so before you power on.)

My conclusion is that if you want excellent easy to use Internet radio function then the Soundbridge is excellent buy at £40. (The only major drawback if you want to listen to real media format.) The radioroku.com internet radio interface to configure your station is better than the receiva.com. I very much like this roku browser interface as you can see what stations are setup easily using web browser. The software capability of the firmware is also superior to that of the IR100. All in all, a great buy at £40 and will buy again and again!

Just as well Dixons/Currys put the price of IR100 from £40 to £80 as I put on hold at the higher price of £80. I don't think I shall buy the IR100 again unless the price is £20 or less. The main drawback is their deadly hang at boot up.

So is the sound quality any good i.e no lag??? Also does the screen display what song is being played?

Think I might get one from Scan.

I came accross this one if anyone is intrested. http://www.shop.philips.co.uk/katalog_/ctl3590/cp36834/si1509286/cl3/Wireless_Music_Adapter
I don't understand them so I would'nt know which one is the best option.

I had that one before the Soundbridge and it's absolutely awful. The text is so small you have to stand in front of it with the remote control to operate it (defeats the object of having a RC!); it needs rebooting every 5 mins; it frequently locks up and has to be unplugged. Complete nightmare. I got mine for £50 and there are a few places that still sell it for that. I got my money back pronto!

Sound quality is excellent - it plays through your own speakers. Yes, the screen shows the track being played, and the singer/group. You can search on a word, say "Friend" or "Love" and every track with that word in the title will play. You can also play tracks by genre. :thumbsup:
