    • Con:

    • Con:

    • Con:
      Firmware updates are rare to non-existent, no support

    I bought this device years ago, when it was pretty 'fresh'. I quickly discovered that underneath it runs Busybox linux, with a shell on top (including a telnet vulnarability - username: root, password: password ;-)). Some testing showed that it would play audio CD's as well, when you plug an external USB CD drive. So far, so good. Worse however, are the wifi stability, and the buffering algorithm used for the internet radio and DAB+. In short: we have to cut the power every day, as it loses connection to our (strong) wifi signal. Also, the default antenna is only suitable for DAB+ reception when outside, and not obscured by buildings. You'll need an amplified or wire antenna if you wish to use it indoors in an urban environment. The DLNA support works well, again with the previous limitation that it will stop working when the wifi connection is lost.
