NETGEAR Powerline USB Music Extender (XAUB2511)

Powerline networking has been established for some time now and has been growing in quality with every generation. We had a look at some of NETGEAR’s Powerline offerings last year, and today we are looking at another new product… the Powerline Music Extender. This Powerline device features a USB expansion port that can be used to stream music to any device with a USB, RCA / Mini Jack connection. Alternatively, the USB port brings network functionality to printers, scanners or hard drives allowing such devices to be shared across your home network from any power outlet.
