We reported about the SLIMP3 device two weeks ago, now DesignTechnica has a detailed review about the SLIMP3 Home Music Receiver.

The SLIMP3 is a networked music player that hooks up to a server computer and allows you to play digital music stored on a remote computer through your stereo. The unit features a 2x40 vacuum florescent display (VFD), a remote control and hooks up to your network with a regular 10-baseT connection.

The device is simple yet powerful. The server software is open-source, runs on Windows, Mac OSX, Linux, BSD and Solaris and requires very little resources. It can play mp3 music at fixed or variable bit rates up to 320Kbps and also can convert various other music formats to .mp3 "on the fly" with the LAME encoder. The SLIMP3 can also play streaming Internet radio such as Shoutcast or RealAudio. Full Review
