Anyone know of a network capable (small) hi-fi system?

    I'm keen to get a new small hi-fi (CD player and radio only) for the bedroom and breakfast room but really want to be able to stream my MP3s to/through it.

    Does anyone know of any network capable hi-fi that coule enable this? I know I could just marry a small hi-fi with something like a Squeezebox or Soundbridge but an all in one would be a nicer solution.

    Thanks.

    Philips do one if I remember...

    MCW770/22 though its wireless B linked one...

    or a much nicer though expensive solution would be a Linn Classick (cd/amp/tuner) + a soundbridge/squeezbox (and some speakers!) :)

    Yeah, the Soundbridge is the preferred option but if I could get an all in one that would be great. I'll have a look at that Philips one you mention. Just hope it doesn't look like a mobile disco like most of Philip's Hi-Fis seem to :(

    Just about to fit the extra WAP into the roof space so 802.11b would be just fine I guess. It's only MP3s (maybe APE) files later on but 11Mbps should be fine.

    Thanks

    Yeah just seen that and quite like it actually. It would be perfect. Can't find anywhere selling it though. Any ideas?
