I'm the Hi-Fi and Audio Editor of What Hi-Fi? and have been reviewing hi-fi and audio products for the best part of a decade. When testing and recommending the best network music streamers, I value excellent sound performance and look out for a seamless experience considering the various (up-to-date) streaming methods and music services these multi-tasking products have to juggle. During testing, I put particular focus on how user-friendly the streamer and accompanying app are, and make sure there are no dropouts or hiccups when streaming. My top picks below range from the affordable to the high-end, and all have passed these crucial tests to deliver the best performance expected at their price point.

2023 marked the first time a music streamer was inducted into our Hall of Fame (where we highlight the best, most significant products every year since What Hi-Fi? started in 1976) and that honour could belong to no other than the Cambridge Audio CXN (V2). This Cambridge streamer has won six What Hi-Fi? Awards in a row now in its category, and if you include the original CXN's gongs too, the model has been lauded ever since its launch in 2015 – no mean feat. 

This accomplished streamer has beaten off competition from various rivals (Arcam, Audiolab, Bluesound, Eversolo) to remain our go-to recommendation at this mid-level price thanks to its combination of great features set, easy-to-use interface and, most of all, terrific sound quality. It has all the streaming features, connections and specs expected of a streamer of this calibre: built-in Chromecast, AirPlay 2, Tidal, Spotify Connect and Roon, along with internet radio, hi-res support and UPnP. There are also multiple digital and analogue connectivity for inputs and outputs, including balanced XLR and USB ports.

All of this is controlled using the excellent StreamMagic app for iOS and Android, and through this app (and the bespoke StreamMagic platform at its core), Cambridge has been able to furnish the streamer with new features to keep it up-to-date and current.

Sound-wise, it continues to impress. It has an enthusiastic, driven delivery that combines snappy timing with layers of subtlety and texture in the detail. We love hearing just how much depth and nuance it can deliver from any music you play through it. Voices are clear and full of emotion, its rhythmic prowess and dynamic fluidity are spot-on – it’s a hugely engaging, involving and entertaining player. Whether it’s an aggressive hip-hop track or a bittersweet love song, the CXN (V2) relays exactly the feel and mood of the song as intended. It delivers these elements with an ease and skill that rival streamers we've heard simply can't come close to.

This accomplished player is nearing its end of shelf life, however, as Cambridge has recently announced a successor, the CXN100. With new ESS DACs and more efficient internal components, a larger display screen and the latest 4th-generation StreamMagic platform, the CXN100 aims to surpass the sound and performance of this excellent CXN (V2) – stay tuned for a full review coming soon.

Best budget music streamer

WiiM Pro Plus on a wooden shelf with plants in background

Compact and affordable, the fully-furnished Pro Plus is the easiest (and cheapest) way to add streaming to your system. (Image credit: What Hi-Fi?)
What Hi-Fi? Awards winner. Potent performance from a terrifically budget music streamer.

Could conceivably sound more muscular

The WiiM Pro Plus is less than half the price of the budget music streamers we'd previously reviewed (see Cambridge Audio MXN10, below), and this tiny, extremely affordable unit impressed us so much that we knew it was worthy of a 2023 What Hi-Fi? Award win when we first reviewed it.

It's as feature-packed as any of its pricier alternatives, with AirPlay 2, Google Chromecast, Tidal Connect, Spotify Connect and both wi-fi and ethernet connections available. The WiiM control app is its crowning glory – set up is swift and fuss-free, everything is logically laid out, and it's that user-friendliness we can see will win many over. Through the app, you get access to all other streaming apps and music stored on the same network. It also has line-level RCA, coaxial and optical connections, and can handle digital audio files at a resolution of up to 32-bit/768kHz and DSD512. That's more versatile than we'd expect at this budget end.

It's ideal for adding streaming powers cheaply and easily to an older hi-fi system, but can also be used as a way of creating a multi-room system with existing kit.

On the audio quality front, the Pro Plus delivers a sound that's clear, detailed and even quite dynamically adept. Feed it high-quality source files, and you'll be rewarded with a big soundstage with instruments all relayed in an assured and confident manner. This is particularly apparent in the midrange, where the vocal is brimming with character and attitude. It's not quite as muscular or as richly textured as its pricier alternatives, but there's plenty of attack that keeps a song's natural rhythm flowing. We certainly found ourselves enjoying every minute of it.

WiiM has delivered a well-executed streamer that's easy to use, sounds accomplished and is packed with features. At this price, we couldn't ask for more.

Best mid-price music streamer

Cambridge Audio MXN10 on a wooden rack with books in background

The MX10 belies its dinky stature by offering robust, confident sound with plenty of insight. (Image credit: What Hi-Fi?)
What Hi-Fi? Awards winner. The MXN10 is the finest mid-price music streamer on the market.

Specifications

Sources: AirPlay 2, Bluetooth 5.0, Google Chromecast, Spotify Connect, Tidal, Deezer, Qobuz, Internet Radio
Network: Wi-fi, ethernet
Inputs: N/A
Outputs: Coaxial, optical, RCA line level
Headphone output: No
Max file resolution: 32-bit/768kHz PCM, DSD512

+
Affordable price

Great streaming features and file compatibility

Reasons to avoid

-
Somewhat basic physical controls
-
No MQA support via Tidal
-
No on-unit display

Until we reviewed the WiiM Pro Plus (above), the Cambridge Audio MXN10 was the most affordable music streamer to pass our test rooms. It still remains great value, however, and delivers so much performance out of its dinky stature, for what we think is still an affordable, entry-level price tag to the world of music streaming. The strikingly minimalist streamer doesn’t come with a remote, nor are many physical connections on the back – an RCA line level analogue output, one coaxial and one optical are all you get – yet this tiny titan still offers everything you need by delivering truly five-star levels of performance.

Controlled via Cambridge Audio’s tidy StreamMagic app, the MXN10 hosts a plethora of streaming methods and services, including Google Chromecast, AirPlay 2, Spotify Connect, Tidal, Deezer, Qobuz and internet radio, as well as support for Bluetooth 5.0 and playback of files stored elsewhere on your local network. It's a breeze to use.

Effectively encompassing its big brother CXN (V2)'s performance on a smaller scale (in size and price), the MXN10 impressed us by delivering much of that musical cohesion and rhythmic and dynamic prowess we like so much in the CXN. Compared with its rival Bluesound Node (2021), the MXN10 adds a new layer of dynamic expression and rhythmic agility that sounds more authentic to the original song. Scale and authority are impressive from such a dinky device, while the tone and texture of instruments come to the fore with a great amount of detail. It's balanced and energetic, and turns its hand to every music genre we play through it. Like the CXN (V2), we find ourselves listening to song after song on the MXN10.

If you have a tight budget and a small space, but want a step-up in hi-fi performance than the WiiM, this MXN10 has the sonic chops and is a seriously impressive piece of kit for this affordable mid-range price.

Best premium music streamer

Naim ND5 XS 2 on a grey background

A sterling piece of hi-fi kit, delivering an extraordinary performance for the money. (Image credit: Naim)
What Hi-Fi? Awards winner. Not the prettiest of music streamers, but you can't argue with the class-leading sound.

Specifications

Sources: UPnP, AirPlay, Chromecast, Tidal, Spotify Connect, Bluetooth aptX HD
Network: Wi-fi, ethernet
Inputs: 2x optical, coax RCA, coax BNC, USB type A
Outputs: Line level, 5-pin DIN, coax BNC

Needs plenty of running in to sound its best

The What Hi-Fi? Award-winning ND5 XS 2 might be entry-level by Naim's standards, but the sound it produces most definitely isn't. Given a decent amount of time to bed in (Naim products can take a couple of months to really hit their stride), its impressively detailed, dynamic and expressive sound makes it a joy to listen to. 

We said in our review: "Tonally it is even, with the ability to dig deep into bass frequencies with ease and tempering that with rich and insightful mids and treble. It possesses that neutrality required to paint an honest picture of a track, refusing to force its own presentation simply to catch the listener’s ear." 

That neutrality is a testament to the streamer's quality at this premium price end. The Naim sounds balanced regardless of source quality or genre, and it handles rhythmic patterns with a kind of maturity and ease that lesser streamers can only dream of. A song's dynamic ebb and flow are as dramatic as they are subtle, while the emotional pull of ballads is conveyed with admirable levels of insight, matched only by the incredibly fun, nimble and finger-snapping beats of hip-hop tracks.

But it's not all sound, sound, sound. The ND5 XS 2 is packed with features and functionality, too, to cater for all your streaming needs. These include Chromecast, Apple AirPlay, Spotify Connect and Tidal, as well as UPnP compatibility so you can stream from any connected storage, and there are physical connections aplenty too. It also supports files up to 32-bit/384kHz stored on an outboard NAS or computer connected to the same network.

The only thing missing is a display, but it's not vital; you use Naim's own control app (now renamed the Focal & Naim app) to navigate your way around on your smartphone or tablet. Doing so is a breeze; we use the app daily to access our local server and stream music for testing, and can genuinely say that the app really is as straightforward a piece of software as you could hope for. That itself is quite a feat, given the vast array of features it puts at your fingertips, but it's easy to find and play all your music from a variety of sources, such as CD-ripped files on a server, Tidal playlists and internet radio stations. All in all, this a terrifically mature and admirably neutral streamer that, if funds allow, should be at the top of your shortlist.

Best music streamer with a CD player

Technics app could be slicker

CDs, SACDs, Bluetooth and music streamed over a network - this is a player for the 21st century. The Technics SL-G700M2 is an excellent and versatile digital source that builds on its five-star predecessor, boasting a wealth of digital connectivity alongside a multitude of streaming options.

The SL-G700M2 remains a beautifully made box, with precision controls and a silky smooth disc drawer – the quality of fit and finish is among the best we have seen at this level. Some niggles from the previous first-generation remains, namely the app software for the streaming control isn't the best we've seen, but it still gets the job done.

The M2 version adds a new USB Type B input and a new DAC, swapping the older AKM AK4497 to an ESS ES9026PRO chip. This change is due to supply issues with the original chip, but incorporating the new DAC resulted in a digital board redesign and an excuse to improve performance even further, as well as update the power supply arrangement.

And we're glad they did. This Technics streamer sounds superb. Its presentation is clear, detailed and insightful, managing to organise the musical information in a cohesive and entertaining way. Its main talent lies in delivering music in a balanced manner, regardless of genre or source. Bold and authoritative when the occasion calls for it; delicate where needed. This same character is present across all digital inputs and when used as a standalone DAC; it can be used with a wide range of partnering kit, too.

Musically engaging and versatile, this Technics SL-G700 is a capable streamer and CD player that covers all bases while being entertaining. Yes, it's possible to get better sound from a separates set up, but this well-conceived combination is hard to beat at this price.

Best music streamer for headphones

Naim Uniti Atom Headphone Edition with Focal headphones on a stand

A niche, headphones-specific version of Naim's Award-winning Uniti Atom streamer (Image credit: Naim)
A premium desktop music streamer that's ideal for discerning headphone users.

No support for MQA

The Uniti Atom Headphone Edition is a headphones-based version of the Uniti Atom – the entry-level machine in Naim’s What Hi-Fi? Award-winning Uniti just-add-speakers streaming system range – and like its forebear, this Edition features built-in streaming smarts and connections aplenty.

While the new Atom has been designed with headphones users in mind, it can, of course, also be used as a streaming preamplifier, either connected to a power amp or a pair of active speakers.

At its core is Naim’s streaming platform, a gateway to streaming services (such as Qobuz, Tidal and Spotify), internet radio and DLNA playback, while support for AirPlay 2, built-in Chromecast and Roon builds on that streaming savviness. Analogue and digital connections, including USB, coaxial, optical, RCA and phono, are also onboard for connecting additional sources.

Sonically the Headphone Edition has all the traits we'd expect from the Atom, characterised by impressive insight, dynamism and musicality, but its presentation is even more sophisticated and open, with greater separation of instruments and superb levels of detail. 

It's a bit more niche than most of the streamers on this list, but for anyone looking to unleash the potential of a premium pair of headphones with a multifaceted streaming system, either to use purely as a desktop centrepiece or to also slip into an existing hi-fi system, then this could be ideal.

Best high-end music streamer

Price puts it out of the reach of most

Analogue inputs could sound better

The Linn Klimax DSM AV has a price tag that puts it out of reach for most people, and with that ultra-high-end cost comes a huge amount of expectation. But Linn's latest range-topper not only has an immaculate design but also offers so much sonic insight, clarity and dynamic expression, not to mention a breathtaking level of organisation and transparency. It certainly lives up to its high-end price tag, as well as ambitious design.

There are three variants of the Klimax DSM, the AV version here has four HDMI 2.0 sockets and a single e-ARC-equipped output to that already extensive features list. Specify the optional surround sound module for an extra £1200 ($1,560/AU$2395) and it can decode all the current movie sound formats bar Dolby Atmos and DTS:X. However, if you do want to go down the surround sound route you’ll have to invest heavily into Linn's ecosystem, using either a complete 7.1 active set-up employing the DSM’s stereo analogue outputs and Exakt connections for a hybrid passive/active set up. 

It can access music across your home network from a NAS unit or stream using TidalQobuz or Spotify Connect. There’s also Bluetooth (version 4.2) and AirPlay connectivity and it can work as a Roon endpoint.

Rather than being a mere streamer, the DSM is more of a streaming preamplifier. As well as the raft of HDMI inputs, it has USB Type B, optical and a pair of coaxials (in BNC form) and analogue equivalents in Balanced XLR and single-ended RCA (x2) form. 

The big technology highlight is the introduction of the Organik digital-to-analogue circuitry, Linn’s first in-house DAC design that has been developed from first principles using the company’s three decades' worth of digital experience. 

The result? An exceptional product that sets new standards for the streamer category as a whole. If you’re lucky enough to contemplate spending this much on a streamer, we say dive right in.

How to choose the best music streamer for you

Music streamers are a standalone component of a dedicated hi-fi set-up. But while other hi-fi separates such as a turntable or CD player just have a simple job to do, a music streamer (or network audio streamer) has to manage many different wireless sources as well as be able to play music files from local storage on your network. 

Most of the selections on this list support the vast majority of hi-res music formats, though the upper limit can vary between 24-bit/96kHz PCM files for more basic products and up to 32-bit/768kHz for those that aim to push the boundary. We wouldn’t get too hung up on the numbers, though, as the vast majority of music isn’t available in those more extreme file types. CD quality is 16-bit/44.1kHz, and a capability of 24-bit/192kHz should be more than enough to meet the needs of most audiophiles. 

Connectivity-wise, streamers can boast AirPlay 2, Bluetooth, Spotify Connect, UPnP compatibility, and physical connections. Regardless of the model, you should also be able to play local music files from a connected NAS drive and play thousands of internet radio stations. You'll also be able to play from your favourite music streaming services – at least Spotify and quite probably higher-quality alternatives such as Tidal or Qobuz are built-in.

Bluetooth is almost always included, and if it’s the more capable and better-quality aptX HD form, then all the better. Most audio streamers will also have digital inputs, so alongside playing music files from a USB stick or flash drive, you’ll usually be able to feed in optical and coaxial digital feeds too, making the streamer something of a digital hub for your system.

To get the best user experience, you’ll really need a smartphone or tablet to control your streamer. Using your streamer's app is the best way to navigate large music libraries, swap between sources and the quickest way of making playlists. If that doesn't appeal, you may want to look for models with a large display and traditional remote control.

Since we’re talking about practicalities, it’s worth mentioning that the first thing any music streamer needs is a stable home internet network, and you need to decide whether to connect the steamer directly with an Ethernet cable or go wireless. Going wire-free is appealing, as it makes things easier and tidier, and provided your network is stable, should work fine for many people. If you can, though, stick with wired because it gives a more stable connection and deliver the best sound quality, making everything go more smoothly over long-term use.

Price-wise, as with all things hi-fi, streamers can vary hugely, and how much you can expect to pay depends on the rest of your set-up. We would suggest that spending broadly the same as your amplifier would be a decent place to start, though it always pays to be flexible to get the right one. 

Whatever your budget, music streamers are a great way to upgrade your sonic experience from a simple wireless speaker, especially if you want to give your digital music collection its proper due. If you love the convenience but want better sound and have the room and budget to accommodate a stereo system, a hi-fi streamer is the way to go.

Almost regardless of which music streamer you buy, you will gain access to an astonishing range of music – but pick with care, and it will make listening to that music all the more enjoyable.

How we test music streamers

Here at What Hi-Fi? we review hundreds of products every year, from TVs to speakers, headphones to hi-fi systems. We have state-of-the-art testing facilities in London and Reading, where our team of expert reviewers do all our in-house testing. This gives us complete control over the testing process, ensuring consistency. 

What Hi-Fi? is all about comparative testing, so we listen to every music streamer we review against the current leader in its field and price point to gauge how it compares to the best-in-class competition. 

We always ensure we spend plenty of time with a music streamer, making sure they are fully run in before we begin testing and trying them with different speakers, using various file formats, streaming services and music genres. We also test every connection, both wired and streaming – from AirPlay to Bluetooth to playing downloaded tracks from our NAS storage and using the USB, optical and analogue connections. We also test how easy the streamer is to use with the accompanying app, remote and on-screen display (if it has one), and keep an eye out for any connection dropouts. 

All review verdicts are agreed upon by the team as a whole rather than a single reviewer, helping to ensure consistency and avoid individual subjectivity. That's why our reviews are trusted by retailers and manufacturers as well as consumers.

From all of our reviews, we choose the top products to feature in our Best Buys, such as this one. That's why if you take the plunge and buy one of the products recommended above, or on any other Best Buy page, you can rest assured you're getting a What Hi-Fi?-approved product.

    Seven grand for a mandatory power supply is simply taking your customers for a ride. It's a lump of iron, wrapped in copper winding, together with other not overly sophisticated componentry, in a plain box. Ridiculous indeed, Naim!

    What! No Linn Streamers. Have the What HiFi reviewers gone deaf or fallen out with Linn? Surely the Selekt, Akurate or Klimax deserves a place in this list. I have a Majik DSi Network Streamer. It is at least as good if not better than half the ones on this list and it has a superb power amplifier built in, for free!

    Does anyone know (or is it possible to update the post) which of these streamers are compatible with Tidal Connect?
