This streamer works over wi-fi or ethernet to stream music from any DLNA network-attached storage device to your hi-fi system.
It can also access files from cloud storage (SkyDrive and Dropbox) accounts or Windows Media Player (11 or higher). It supports all the common file formats, adding Apple Lossless Audio to its compatibility list too, and copes with high-res files up to 24-bit/96kHz.
Left off the inventory is 24-bit/192kHz, but that’s not a deal breaker for us at this price. Around the back of the device things look pretty bare, though that’s probably to be expected from something that can fit in the palm of your hand. What’s handy to know is that the only analogue output is a 3.5mm jack plug.
QED provides a 3.5mm-to-stereo phono lead but it’s only 65cm long. Though this might prove restrictive with a standard box-sized streamer, there shouldn’t be a problem finding somewhere near your amp for the tiny QED to perch. If there is, you can always buy a longer lead. Wireless functionality also means that the ethernet cable running between the streamer and router isn’t necessary once set-up is achieved, though choosing to keep a wired connection should give more stable results.
