The rear panel offers an array of inputs and outputs further enhancing the appeal of this streamer. Both RCA and XLR analogue outputs complement the three digital outputs. Three USB inputs are available – for iPod, host and PC in additional to a coaxial intput. There is of course an ethernet connection and the MP100SE has both Bluetooth and DSD. When the unit is first switched on, or when the network has changed, the unit will require setting up before network functions such as internet radio or media streaming are available. This will only need to be done once (per network), as the unit will remember settings even when switched off and unplugged.
The settings options is found at the foot of the main menu. It should be noted that the MP100SE recognises FAT16 or FAT32 formatted USB pen/disk drives. No other formats are supported. The streamer has many functions which are all explained in detail in the accompanying user manual.
