I have had My Grace Bravado-X (GDI-IRD4500M) just a couple of weeks now and I am not sure how I lived without it. I have listened to great music I am sure I would have never heard before. The sound is good for a table sized radio but I wanted better and so I ordered and installed Carver TS-241S Home Theater Speakers - Pair. These speakers more than doubled the sound quality! The internal speakers are fine for voice and music but I wanted to fill the whole house with music. Thanks to Grace, hook up was easy with plain old fashioned speaker wire. The radio is in the kitchen and I wanted to be able to turn up the volume enough so I could still hear the radio easily over the usual kitchen noise. The Grace class D 16-Watt digital amplifier really cranks up these external speakers. I am using a NETGEAR RangeMax Wireless-N300 Gigabit Router with USB WNR3500L and all works fine. You only have to know your router network code and the radio supplied all the other information needed to set up. I had my radio playing in 10 minutes! Also the enclosed user guide is better than you usually get these days. It covers most everything you will need to know. Adding stations that you find and want to keep is easy at [...]. Add your station to your list (after you set up your free account) and by the time you walk into the other room it will already be on your radio. Really cool!
Constuction is very good and the unit is very impressive looking on display. There is nothing on this radio that looks or feels cheap. The remote is just like your TV remote only smaller.

A big jump from the regular Internet radios and older models of Grace IRadios. Better sound quality. Interface is the same. The display being "Monochrome" display was a real turn off...c'mon who has that anymore? The audio I beleive is powered by a class D 16-Watt digital amplifier , yes it delivers crisp audio to it's rear-ported stereo speakers. Also it has a preset equaliser along with bass and Treble control, choice of mono/Stereo is also possible.

The front panel buttons are kinda dumb with menus and sub menus buried deep. However the remote is
"Full-function Remote Control" and one can chose 1 of your 10 preset stations, search for new stations, skip songs, and give feedback on Pandora like thumbsup/down. The Remote Control iPhone App is a cool feature - it allows you to go control 1 or more of your Grace Internet radios from you iPhone or iPod Touch or Android remote control applications. You can change the volume, turn it on or off, find stations and set presets or even set any one of your five alarms.

As usual there are a lot of Internet Radio stations around the world and it is linked/powered by Reciva, enabling one to access over 50,000 Radio Stations (?), Podcast, and on demand content, Oneline music services: Pandora, Live365, Rhapsody, iheartradio and PREMIMUM SIRIUSXM internet radio, Weatherbug, Live365 , NPR, BBC, etc.

Other features are - 3.5mm Stereo headphone jack, sounds decent, RCA outputs to connect to optional home stereo however no digital output (maybe a price factor), one can plug in iphone, mp3 player or cd player analog inputs , one USB port to play saved music off your USB device , External left / right speaker connectors and a switch to chose between external speakers or internal.

-Does everything as advertised.
-If you want a great sounding, solidly built internet radio that can plug into anything (lots of different output options in back), then his is the best internet radio for you.
-Also a big plus - the user account available on for adding up to 100 stations, 100 streams AND 100 podcasts that don't come pre-programmed into the unit. Also through reciva, one can request a station be added to the standard menu.
-Makes the ultimate bedside alarm radio, or a great tuner for a stereo.
-And, firmware updates are pushed out periodically, so functionality is always improved.

-Only 10 presets on the remote; 5 on the box, itself.
-hard to read, non-illuminated button labels
-tedious station search input on the box by twirling the knob through an alphabet and locking in each letter/number. Don't know how this can be improved without providing a qwerty keyboard. Would be much faster if one could do preset button programming through the Reciva web site.

Excellent box for the price. Unlike the Logitech I hear everyone making noises about, the Bravado has a more powerful amp, more outputs, more features, and comes with a remote for no extra charge, and all at about the same price as a Logitech Squeezebox. Also, I went through the Squeezebox manual and found nothing like the Reciva internet programming site that Grace provides. For those who get hooked on internet radio and want more than one in their house, going with Grace with their Reciva site is the best choice in the internet radio market.
