5.0 out of 5 stars The Mondo is a Dream to Use, January 13, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Grace Digital Wi-Fi Music Player with 3.5-Inch Color Display (GDI-IRC6000) (Black) (Electronics)
The Grace Digital GDI-IRC6000 Wi-Fi Music Player with 3.5-Inch Color Display (Black) (Mondo) is the latest digital audio product from Grace. The setup was a breeze, and I connected with my Wi-Fi router within 2 minutes, and was up and listening to Internet radio in literally 5 minutes. The voice and music quality are excellent. The color LCD display is a joy to navigate through.

I only have two small nits about the Mondo:

1. Be careful when you use the built-in handle to move the Mondo around, it could slip from your grasp easily.
2. The supplied remote control works, but the Mondo at times responded sluggishly to my commands on the remote.

There, I just laid out all my complaints about the Mondo.

People, buy this radio if you can. You will be glad you did.

I was ready to buy this radio till I discovered it can not be controlled via a Windows browser. I use this feature all the time with my Logitech Squeezebox and don't want to have an internet radio without it. According to Grace its hardware based and cannot be added to this radio. Maybe next version...

Hi, this is Greg from Grace Digital. Currently, you can add your favorite stations to your radio via the web site. By the end of this year we will add web control of volume, setting presets, on / off etc. we do not need to change the radio hardware, we simply need to update our web site functionality. Which we will do by year end.
Regards, Greg

"By the end of this year we will add web control of volume, setting presets, on / off etc"

That's pretty sweet! My wife is going to be so annoyed when I keep changing the station on her.

I noticed they had iphone remote functionality, so I assumed it was apparently possible to pretty much control the thing remotely.

G'day Greg from Grace Digtal, will the Mondo (GDI-IRC6000) work in Australia we use 220-240 Volts. I haven't been able to find anything about it's power rating. Some of the other Grace radio's are rated for 110-220V, but we're not sure about the (GDI-IRC6000). Thanks

Lois,
You must be a tech whiz. I am a senior trying to catch up on tech stuff and although I'm a notch above tech 101, it seems that after 5 minutes I would still be browsing thru the manual trying to find out where to start. Quckly, what are the steps you had to go thru - e.g. beyond putting in your router password (how done), what do you do next? Thanx
