WLD-201 Network Player
The Sansui WLD-201 Network Player is a stand-alone audio component that can integrate into your existing hi-fi set-up in much the same way as a traditional radio tuner or CD Player, except it comes with all the advanced technology necessary to access your digital music library.
First of all it has a built-in DAB/DAB+ radio tuner allowing you to get access to a host of local digital radio broadcasts. Secondly, once connected to your home network (via wireless or Ethernet cable connection), it will give you access to over 15,000 internet radio stations from around the globe, many of which are now in digital HD sound formats giving exceptional audio quality. Finally, you can listen to any of the music tracks stored on your computer or network attached storage (NAS) drive, giving you access to your entire library without the need for any other device.
In addition to the remote control handset that comes with it, if you own an iPod Touch, iPhone or iPad, you can download the free Sansui Libretto remote control application, allowing you to browse all of your music from the palm of your hand. (On devices up to iOS6 only). For Android and more recent iOS devices, any UPnP control application is capable of communicating with the WLD-201, such as the popular PlugPlayer
