Finally, a network music player that looks as good as it sounds and plays your PC or Mac digital music files anywhere in the house, connecting your stereo or powered speakers to your computer's digital music library. Also, listen to hundreds of free music and talk Internet radio stations. Save 10 of your favorite stations for easy recall without even turning your computer on! It is network ready with wired Ethernet or WiFi. Support for Apple Rendezvous, iTunes, Windows Media Connect, Windows Media Player 10, Rhapsody, and any music services using Windows Media DRM 10 (such as Napster and Musicmatch) makes the SoundBridge the most compatible music player around. SoundBridge makes playing your favorite music files a breeze. The only difference between the M2000, M1001, and M500 models is the size and capabilities of the display. Its compact body is perfect for a shelf, tabletop, or nightstand. It uses Apple's DAAP (digital audio access protocol) to communicate directly with iTunes, and uses less network bandwidth by decoding AAC files in the player rather than in the PC. Select and control your music from across the room using the large, bright SoundBridge display and custom remote control. You can also control playback from your computer using an easy web interface for starting, stopping, and skipping between songs. Enjoy the award-winning, sleek, industrial design in any room of the house. Connect up to 10 SoundBridge units to 1 computer running Windows Media Connect, or 5 running iTunes so each user can select different music to play.
