Philips launches multimedia micro hifi system

THE new Philips MCi900 DVD hifi micro system ships with SoundSphere speakers with unique free-floating tweeters that the company claims produce a wider, deeper sound impression.

The Full HD system is able to play back various multimedia formats, including DVD, Picture CD, SVCD as well as DiVX, JPEG, MP3, WMA, eAAC+, Flac and Ogg Vorbis files.

It has a USB2.0 port that supports a thumbdrive or an external hard disk. Included in the package is an external 160GB drive that can store up to 2,000 music albums.

This means users no longer need to walk to the device and swap in a different CD whenever they want to listen to another album, Philips said.

To further enhance the user experience, the system comes with the proprietary multimedia streaming technology called Streamium.

Users can hook the MCi900 to the Internet or their home network via its built-in Ethernet port or connect wirelessly courtesy of WiFi.

Once connected, users can directly access their multimedia library stored on connected PCs.

The system also supports Internet Radio, which allows users to listen to more than just local radio stations.

Other notable features include HDMI connectivity and a 3.5in colour screen for easy navigation or to view JPEG still photos. The MCi900 retails for RM2,999.
