Sony Giga Juke NAS-SC55PKE Multi-Room Wireless Audio System


Is Sony's all-in-one multi-room wireless audio system the one to top them all? Andy finds out.

In this package the Music Server is joined by the Giga Juke Wireless Player NAS-C5E. Like the Music Server it can be purchased separately, this time for around the £200 mark, to add extra rooms to your setup. You also get a remote control with...

Sony NAS-50HDE Gigajuke review


Can connect tunes from your PC via your network, or from its own 80GB built-in hard disk - a good micro system choice for fans of digital music

80GB hard disk ; plays files from your PC via a network ; a good micro, too

Price ; slightly lazy bass

Hard disk and network-readiness will appeal to many, though the price is high

Sony NAS-50HDE review


Sony's prouder than a new dad of its new ‘GigaJuke' hi-fi and rightly so: it's a stellar little network hi-fi

Does almost everything, and does most of it well – but the GigaJuke just isn’t quite as musical as it ought to be

Sony CMT-U1BT review


The bluest of all the wireless data-transfer media, Bluetooth, lets this Sony hi-fi stream music from your phone. But does it sound any good?

A solid micro hi-fi with a juicy tech cherry in the form of Bluetooth. Rivals from Onkyo and Yamaha, though, offer better sound-per-pound value

Sony Giga Juke NAS-SC500PK Review


The Sony Giga Juke NAS-SC500PK has multitasking at its heart. As well as wirelessly firing songs around your house, it's a whole hi-fi in a box. The central Music Server is a multi–facted music master, acting as a dock for your MP3 player, doling out...

Easy set-up, great sound, speakers included

The 1980s remote controls and seemingly random restrictions

If you don't already have any hi-fi kit, this could be cheaper and easier than a Sonos

Sony NAS-SC500PK Multiroom


Good Sound, Easy to save full CD's or just individual tracks to the Hard Disk, nice information screen on the main unit. Wireless set-up on the music station works well. All in all I am very happy with this product

Internet Radio on the Wireless Station seems to be retricted to Shoutcast and 365 radio, so unable to reiceve a wide range of stations ie no BBC for example ; Also on the Station the information screen is quite small for reading the information. The...
