Todays audio market is flooded with portable MP3 devices, yet no one has really been able to innovate in that market, except for?Slim Devices.
They have created a product that, when connected to your home network, can stream your favourite songs, from your computer to the room?in which the device is connected.
Setting up the unit is a breeze. Download the server software to the computer you want to play music from. Then, connect the SLIMP3 device to your home network and to a nearby stereo. Once the unit is online, and the server software is up and running, the SLIMP3 unit will automatically configure itself to your selected music library.
Lots of Features
The SLIMP3 has many features including:
- Search by Artist, Title, Genre, etc
- Playlist support .m3u, iTunes, custom playlists
- Built in Clock

(We could go on and on here, but check out the web site for more information).
What You’ll Find
Every SLIMP3 unit ships with a programmable remote control, Ethernet cord, batteries, RCA cords, AC Adapter and of course the actual LCD unit.
In My Own Words
Out of the box, the unit is extremely useful, especially for getting those tunes from the computer upstairs, to the basement stereo. In fact, what really fascinated me was the possibility of connecting a wireless add-on so that I could really bring this device to ANY room in the house, even taking it outside and connecting it to a portable stereo system. The SLIMP3 software also allows you to connect multiple units together on one network, officially eliminating any need for CD players.
If you don’t already own one, go grab yours fast. The SLIMP3 is just one of those tech gizmos every house needs.
Pros: Easy Setup, lots of features, small/light unit, supports all major operating systems
