We have a WAC3500 centre and one station (WAS7000). Want to add another one but can't find WAS7000 to buy. Been offered WAS700 (and WAS7500), but not sure if it's compatible with WAC3500 - anyone help?
Thanks

Hi

You should consider S7500. The S 700 is an old one. You should also look at one of the new network players NP 3900/3700.
These will play the content on the HDD of your 3500 but you will get much more like spotify /Napster access which you do not have in S 7500. Of course the NP does not have FM radio or USB playback which S 7500 has.

All WAS* Stations works fine with the WAC3500.
There is one minor exception for the WAS7500, you won't see any Album Art on the WAS7500 (it requires a WAC7500 or MCi500H as a Center in this case).

All NP* players works too, but they will not work with Music Broadcast or Music Follows me.

Cheers !

According to reply from Philips, "the WAS700 and WAC3500 will not be compatible with each other"! Just want second station for bedroom, not sure need such high spec as WAS7500 but not sure what to do now.

I would listen to Tias.
What he doesn't know about Streamiums isn't worth knowing.
Take a look on the old Streamium Cafe forum and you might understand why.

To re-iterate. The WAS700 will work fine with the WAC3500D.
:D

Flimflam is 100% correct.
And I have used the WAS700 together with my WAC3500 for about a year (until the WAC3500 broke :p ) without any problems at all.

Cheers !
