Great music centre when it worked
Produced great sound though the wireless setup proved impossible for me. As wireless facility wasn't the reason I bought this product it didn't bother me to much. The hard drive and always being satisfied with Philips products made me invest in this music centre. To my disappointment, it totally died on me only 13 month after purchase and has been sitting in my home collecting dust (luckily I hadn't managed to fill the hard drive).

Great concept poorly executed.
This product initailly met all my expectations and certainly does what it says on the box and well. However after two years it failed to boot-up and was impossible to start up. It seems the power supply is overheating and destoying the components involved in start-up. Cost of repair outside Warranty is uneconomical and I've written it off. Possibly going to recover the HDD to see if I can recycle it somehow.

All my music in one place
The 80GB hard drive allowed me to put my mp3 tracks and CDs on to one device. I also digitised a load of my old LPs and tapes and got those on there too. So now I can easily access all of my music browsing through tracks, artists, albums or genres using the in-built screen. No more sifting through piles of CDs.
I can also listen to all my music on my PC or mobile phone streaming the contents of the WAC3500’s hard drive through my home network.
And then there’s the FM radio, internet radio, CD player, USB port, iPhone dock and uPNP access to other devices on my home network.
On top of all that the sound is great from the decent sized speakers.

Value for money for features, quality speakers for price
Good introduction to streamed music if you can't afford the apple route
If it had DAB radio , through its great quality speakers, it would be a killer
