5.0 out of 5 stars Great player - can stream from your phone via the onkyo remote control app., 25 Jan. 2016
This is a great budget CD Player and Streamer.

The thing that really impressed me was the sound quality - the dac really brings the detail of the music to life and the soundstage is really deep.

I also have a flash drive in the rear USB port and it seems to be able to handle any file I throw at it. It can play ALAC files and in 24 bit. Even 192 kb/s sounds good - the dac again does a great job. The front USB charges and streams from iOS devices (streaming apps or the Music app).

While it can't airplay, it can stream from a phone or tablet via the remote control app. That's a nice surprise. Streaming from my computer would require DNLA - but as a non-PC user, that would require some server software...

Really like the network radio. Favourites can be added via a web site and the unit can handle podcasts and stream addresses - as well as stream shortcut files on a network share.

The only downside I can see with the unit is the lack of wifi - but even then a wifi repeater with an ethernet port is pretty inexpensive (£15) - so there's no need to pay a fortune for dongles.

3.0 out of 5 stars Cheap and cheerful - but can't seem to admin the router after setting up in repeater mode, 9 Jan. 2016
Not a bad device if you wan to use it in a basic way. You use the included ethernet cable and connect to the access point via its default IP address through a browser (check your network settings to find the router IP if in doubt). Enter admin and admin for username and password.

At this stage I recommend you change your username and password. You then select repeater and select your wireless network from the list. Enter your network password and set the name of the network. If you want the extender to be transparent rather than set up aecondary access point, you need make sure the name is EXACTLY the same as the one from the list (cut and paste your existing network name).

The only issue I've found is that after rebooting it's impossible to find the repeaters IP address anymore to change its settings. In that case, I've had to reset the device to tinker with it. I suspect the WAN or LAN side needs a STATIC ip address, so you can go back to it on the network. In any case, it does what I wanted from it (use it for hi-fi equipment that doesn't have native WiFi) so not a big deal.

If I bought one of these again, I'd go for a branded unit so you could get firmware updates (couldn't find any on the web for this).

5.0 out of 5 stars Good quality cable with tight fitting jack and socket, 19 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Good quality cable with tight fitting jack and socket. The cable has flexible strengtheners at each end, so I hope this cable lasts (I'm using it to extend headphones on a hi-fi). The cable is fairly thick, so the signal strength should be maintained. Very quick service. I'm impressed so far.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was very impressed by the series and the book is perhaps even better. Miles has an ear for a pithy turn of phase that sums up a particular historical moment - these often make me chuckle to boot! The broad scope helps to put the curious project of civilisation in a wider context, but not without addressing the particularity of each 'test tube'. The section on the bronze age and its collapse is fascinating and helped me to see the history of that period in a new way. The Phoenicians were also fascinating figures in the story (Miles also wrote a book about Carthage). The overall effect is to explain problems each civilisation was trying to solve and therefore the context that explained why they were what they were. It's very accessible, well-structured and doesn't become boring at any point. I can't recommend it enough. I just hope Richard Miles doesn't get lost in academia in Australia and has time to make another top-notch series for the BBC again!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best of Times is perhaps a more mature record that ..., 27 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Best Of Times (Audio CD)
I became a fan of this ban when I first heard Fight Less Win More and I was impressed by the band's distinctive and detailed sound. Best of Times is perhaps a more mature record that maintains the melodic songwriting, but the influences are distinctly less nautical or folky and are dominated more by driving rhythms of bass, keyboard, acoustic guitar and drums. The result is all the better for it in my opinion. Tracks like Wide Open and Extra Curricular have this wonderful sense of forward motion, adding layers and further instruments (piano on the former, trumpets on the latter). The vocal sits further back in the soundscape and has a more metallic feel, rather like New Order or Electronic. These tracks are contrasted some more delicate folkier tracks, or with Keeping On, Keeping On, wonderful soaring soundscapes that make the vocal another instrument. After listening to this album many times, somehow the tracks maintain their freshness and ability to surprise. Definitely a keeper. My favourite band at the moment.

Great for connecting to an external or digital aerial. My DAB coverage is much improved.
