Top Customer Reviews
This device brings the clock-radio into the 21st Century. It connects to your Wi-fi at home, and delivers almost any radio station you want from around the world.
NPR junkies can choose from a brace of stations, and the worldwide selection is superb--let me recommend Radio National and Directions in Groove from Australia, KQED and WNYC (the AM version; you'll get AM radio in hi-fi!), Deutsche Welle in English, Radio Netherlands, and of course, the BBC. Living in a non-English-speaking country, it's a real life-line for me.
It solves an issue that has vexed me with conventional clock radios I've owned. Reception problems. With an internet radio, the signal is as strong as your home wi-fi.
No need for an integrated CD. You can play music wirelessly from your computer or a USB stick.
And for a small speaker, the sound is remarkably good. You can plug it into your hi-fi if you wish, for even better sound.
It gets five stars, but not without a couple of glitches. The radio updates the station list automatically, but if a station changes its website in between software updates, you might miss out for a while. The menus are elaborate and can be a bit complex until you get used to them--and that includes the one you use simply to turn the alarm on. And the backlighted time displays ONLY when the radio is actually on; though I expect that glitch to be fixed in a software update.
It has good sound that is punchy and decent. It's better than my clock radio. The hardware is superb and very functional for a bedside nighttable. The problem is the software. This excellent radio could be so much better if it weren't for the odd user interface mistakes and amazingly bad Vtuner software.
First for the interface. The backlight is extremely bright--a firmware update allows it to automatically turn off in 1, 3, or 5 minutes--each of which is too long. The remote control often stops working when you're punching buttons quickly, like the older TiVos. The interface doesn't make it clear that the system is busy downloading something and does not respond for a time (sometimes the hourglass appears, sometimes it doesn't). Takes a few too many 'clicks' to get to what you want. When you hit the 'power' button it doesn't start playing music automatically--you have to drill down through the menus again.
[EDIT: Yes, this problem has been mitigated, but I am leaving it in for posterity.] It is impossible to add stations yourself!! I am not kidding. You really can't. This is a major, horrible flaw that I didn't appreciate. There is no user customizable feature on their web site to add a station, just a "suggestion" that it be added to the public Vtuner list. If you subscribe to premium audio services like DI.FM and SKY.FM, it is utterly impossible to sign in to those services, even though the service is completely standards-based and works on just about every player imaginable. It is not possible to input a URL into this unit. I am flabbergasted at this glaring mistake.Read more ›
Yes the display is bright and not the best I've ever seen - but who cares? For the price paid it is more than sufficient. The alarm clock feature is nice but no one is buying this solely for that reason.
What other internet radio works this well, is this easy to setup, and has a comparable feature set? Let's see, it plays 13,000+ internet radio stations. Check. You can add new stations via (...) web site (and also easily browse and create your own named "favorites" categories that will then be added to your list on the radio), you can easily add or remove stations to/from your "Favorites" list on the radio itself, speaker is OK (like a radio) but you also have analog stereo outputs you can connect to powered speakers or stereo or whatever (and sound is good, no noise or hiss), it has an FM radio that will display HD info if stations transmit it, it will play your MP3's from your USB key or hard drive, it will play media for any PC or laptop on your network via WMP 11, MusicMatch Jukebox, or many other media servers (like twonky), comes with a decent remote, and it cost about as much as a good MP3 player?
I can't believe how tough some people here are with their ratings. I gave it 5 stars just to compensate for them. I would have given it 4 because there is room for improvement, but then, for this price, and with this feature set, 5 stars is warranted. Plus - and it's a big plus! Everything works as advertised without any frustrating setup gymnastics. I took this thing out of the box, set the manual aside (yes, it actually has a printed manual!Read more ›
