At 99€ it's appealing to almost everyone, except for hi-fi purists, but this little machine can compete with several high-end devices which cost 4 times its price.
It is claimed that it can play H.264, Matroska MKV, MP4 and all kind of DivX formats as well as VOBs, very useful to play DVDs. Of course, MP3, WMA, OGG and FLAC are supported, but also AAC, DTS and Dolby Digital encoded formats are. No Blu-Ray disc image support, though.
The unit allows HDMI (1080p) video and digital audio. It can process DTS, Dolby Digital, TrueHD and Digital Plus, DTS-HD MA and MR to downmix audio flows to a standard low-end hifi system.
Includes an Ethernet port and an optional (free bonus at the moment) USB 802.11n antenna to provide Internet access, thus opening to several web services such as Picasa, Youtube, Jamendo, CNN, iPodCast, Yahoo! Weather and several others, that can be increased easily by upgrades.
Being an open architecture, it can also be am open window to developers who wish to customise the platform.
