On the audio side, the VMP70 falls a bit short. While it does offer playback of WMA, MP3, DTS, OGG and AAC, the presence of FLAC support is sorely lacking. The VMP70 offers HDMI, component and composite connections as well as SPDIF. Strangely, the device doesn’t have any networking capability, only playing files attached via one of the pair of USB drives.
All in all, the VMP70 appears to give less bang for the hundred bucks, considering that similarly priced options offer more compatibility and most importantly, the ability to pull files off of a home network.
