Once setup to your WiFi, you have hundreds of global radio stations to stream... but make no mistake... once initialized the music comes directly from the Internet... NOT your phone (or tablet etc)
I also setup my network storage to play files, it's like have a jukebox...
Which brings me onto the app you forced to use, it's clumsy and old feeling, not sure if there's alternatives...
The reason I bought it was to stream from Spotify, but you are forced to use their premium service - or it will not connect... which killed it for me.
But all in all I'm quite impressed with it... the sound quality is a million times better than a Bluetooth speaker.
There is a reason that these are discounted - the reliability is poor, and I don't expect this to last forever. These were selling for a tenner which makes it worth a punt and even at 15 quid I would say try one - from Amazon where making a return of a faulty one will not be a problem. When they work they are great and very cost effective way to stream high quality audio over your network.
Edit: Second one has failed after two months. Great while it lasted but clearly these are not fit for purpose. Avoid.
I tested the module against a Raspberry Pi 2 with generic digital output HAT (expansion board with coax and optical outputs). I expected the Pi to walk all over for the Module. However, to my amazement, the Module revealed more subtle detail connected to the same DAC. It just goes to show you can't judge anything by it's price tag.
The limitations I mentioned are the module is based around Qualcom's Allplay media platform and that appears to fallen flat on it's face. So no new products or support in the future. There's a free music player called Allplay Jukebox available for Android. It's a bit basic and slow but can access the NAS housing my music collection. Things get interesting in Windows where I found you can right click a file (or files) in explorer and cast to the Module. Windows Media Player also detects the Module and casts music. Unfortunately, my favorite players, Foobar and VLC can't detect the Module.
So is it worth buying at £14.99? Well, it's a genuine hifi audio streamer at a fraction of the price of most streamers and half the price of a Chrome Cast Audio. The Chrome Cast was my goto streamer but suffers audio dropouts which I cannot resolve. A problem the Module doesn't suffer. If you want to stream music the Module is the best deal I can find. I might just buy another to tuck away in case the current one dies.
****** UPDATE ******
I just received a second Module. Since they don't make these anymore it makes sense to have a spare, especially at £14.99. There are a few of these audio streamers being offered cheap at the moment but the Goodmans looks a bargain and the more I use it the more impressed I become. This is a serious bit of hifi kit. I'm currently powering the Module from a lithium power bank and noticing more detail over switch mode power supplies. I stated in my first part of this review Foobar could not detect the Module. It turns out there is a Upnp rendering extension available. Now I can see Goodmans Module in the output menu.
Sound quality from its own built-in DAC is fine for most purposes. Not 'Audiophile' quality but FAR better than you would expect for £14.99. It is about the same audio quality as a Sonos Connect which is 20x the price. This is therefore incredible value for money.
I am currently using this Goodmans Module in a bedroom with an old (but good) hifi system. I am using the supplied optical connector into an old, 1st generation Beresford DAC. I am sending music to it from JRiver Media Centre and I don’t bother with the Qualcomm App. The resultant sound would satisfy all but the fussiest audiophile.
Many modern amps and AV receivers have their own DACs and optical connectors so this is a dirt cheap way of getting started streaming music.
It is part of the Qualcomm Allplay system but you do NOT have to use the Qualcomm App once you have connected the Module to your wifi. It is DLNA compliant so virtually any computer or smartphone will communicate with it once it is on the same wifi network. You can even select music in Windows Explorer and simply ‘Cast’ it directly to the Module. Dead simple if you sit at your computer a lot. Better still though to use audio friendly DLNA server software on your PC to by-pass the sound corruption that computers often cause. JRiver Media Centre for example.
With the Qualcomm App, or many other Apps, you can tell the Goodmans Module to grab your selected music from any computer or NAS on your network and start playing it – just like the more expensive systems such as Sonos. It is NOT as user-friendly as Sonos but most 11 year olds will use it without problem.
When Qualcomm Allplay was introduced I switched from Sonos to Musaic MPLs and got a clear sound quality improvement. I have no idea why but sadly the Qualcomm Allplay system never really caught on and the system seems to be in decline. That is probably why this budget Goodmans Module is so incredibly cheap. It is important to appreciate that the decline of the Qualcomm system does NOT matter to the operation of the Goodmans Module. It will continue to work with any common or garden DLNA server, any Windows PC, Laptop, Tablet or phone.
At this price, just give it a try. I’m going to buy a spare one.
UPDATE: My review obviously jinxed it. The very next day, it failed to turn on. Not such a bargain after all.
