Good review, but there are a few points that are worth mentioning.


MusicPal now has WMA playback so can play BBC radio channels. The update for it will be retrieved the fist time time you connect it to the internet which is a very straight forward process. I bought this a few weeks back for just under 30 pounds and think it's an absolute steal. Hooking it up to your hifi and DLNA server (eg Tversity in Windows or MediaTomb in Linux) will allow you to listen to your entire music collection, and you won't need to have a PC other than your main server running. Furthermore there is a windows and a pocket PC app that will allow you to remote control the device a pc/pocketpc or you can use any web browser capable device. It is not as sophisticated as the SlimServer as it you can only choose to play the favourites can be a way to build a cheap multi room music system for a fraction of the cost of Sonos or even SlimServer based solution. On the bad side, it does however seem to lock up at times, which although rare is rather annoying as you have to cut power to the device and bring it back online.
