"The SliMP3 is an Ethernet digital music player that streams tunes from a Linux PC. The player allows the user to hook up to the source without having to allocate a separate PC to receive that music over the network. For those of you who have done exactly that just to pump a little music into the lobby, you will find this little player can save quite a bit in both money and space.

The SliMP3's Spartan design underlines the products simplicity, a simple board and vacuum fluorescent display screwed behind a slightly larger translucent smoke gray plastic screen shield that also makes up the unit's base. The Ethernet jack is embedded directly in the card and two RCA jacks draw the signal to the speakers. The player has a 1MB buffer that provides 8 seconds of buffer for 128MB flies.

The SliMP3 comes with a 5V, 1000ma regulated power supply. A Sony RM-V301 universal remote to operate the unit is also supplied."
