Roku SoundBridge M1000


Roku's SoundBridge M1000 is a snazzy piece of industrial design, built for piping digital audio from a PC (or Internet connection), to a home stereo. ...

Stylish industrial design, outstanding functionality

Display can be hard to read from a distance

Universal plug and play support, wireless and wired networking, and both analogue and digital outputs combine to make the Roku SoundBridge M1000 a top-notch network music player.

Roku SoundBridge M1000


Roku SoundBridge is a network music player that lets you play your Mac or PC digital music files anywhere in the house - connecting your stereo or powered speakers to your computer's digital music library.

Supports iTunes and Slim Devices' SlimServer software ; Includes 802.11b wireless card ; Large, bright text display ; Rhapsody support via a third-party plug-in ; Simple interface ; Optical and coaxial digital audio outputs ; Works with Windows and Mac

Can't stream secure AAC files purchased from iTunes store ; Side-mounted cable covers aren't durable ; Small remote control ; Pricier than competing models that also stream video and images ; Lacks a headphone jack

In the final analysis, the Roku SoundBridge M1000 is a better-than-average audio-only digital media receiver.It's better-looking and slightly more affordable than the Slim Devices' Squeezebox but not quite as durable or as stable as that model

"Great product, shop around, bought mine AU$349"


There isn't a perfect device in this cl****. It's horses for courses, depending on your requirements. For music buffs the lack of lossless support in some formats is a drawback but for most mere mortals this really isnt a problem. This thing streams...
