There are a lot of buzz about HD radio being the wave of the future. I tried an HD radio, and let me tell you, this internet radio has HD completely beat! I live in an area with poor reception for local stations, and I was tired of having to listen my favorite station through my laptop. Within minutes of taking the radio out of the box, I was connected to my favorite station but then I started exploring. I couldn't believe what I found! The radio connected to my Pandora account seamlessly. I've added stations to Pandora on my laptop and they appear on the radio within seconds! Controls on the radio link to Pandora for "thumbs up" or "down." Fantastic. But the really amazing thing is the intuitive interface that provides access to countless (there must be tens of thousands) of radio stations from around the globe! The interface is so intuitive that the stations can be selected either by region or by genre. All with no buffering! Incredible! For these features, I am deleriously happy with my purchase.

For all of its exceptional qualities, the sound quality is disappointing. With one speaker, the bass is truly lacking (and I don't like heavy bass). The sound doesn't seem "full." There are jacks in the back to connect stereo speakers but I'm not sure how that would work or whether I want to go through the effort. I bought this radio based on a review in the Boston Globe. They mentioned the Squeezebox Boom as having the highest quality sound. Of course, that radio was significantly more expensive and doesn't have Pandora controls. Neither radio has an iPod connection and they don't have back-up batteries. Neither has iTunes tagging (seriously?!).

All in all, I'm very happy. When they develop a radio with audiophile-quality sound, I'll be in line to buy one.

if you can connect to the internet, you can use Pandora to create your very own "radio station" which will play the kinds of music you like, (you select it from a huge library of all recorded music, from the earliest days of radio until now). and if you can create a Pandora account, you can not only play your favorite music on your computer, but (and especially if you have a laptop with those tiny, little tinny speakers), you can improve on your computer speakers by buying and using an "internet radio" to listen to the music.

an "internet radio" uses your internet connection (it makes a wireless connection to your main computer or it makes a network connection -- via an ethernet cable connected to your main computer -- to SHARE your internet connection just as another computer might). then, as long as you remain connected to the internet, you can play music (as, for example, from Pandora) as long as you wish. you can use the single (but effective) speaker in the Livio Radio or you can connect the radio to your home music system via a stereo cable.

in addition to Pandora (where you, in effect, create your own radio station -- but may, in the future, have to pay a nominal monthly fee for copyright purposes), there are thousands (yes, thousands) of FREE internet radio stations that you can use this radio to listen to (by connecting you to these stations from all over the world via the internet). the livio comes with a small remote control, an internal "program" for easily setting up the radio to connect to your Pandora account, another for connecting to "Reciva" and all those free internet radio stations, volume controls, mutes, etc.

the radio is well-built and, after a few weeks of using it, i have no complaints whatsoever. it's a delight.

The Livio radio is a gem. Easy to set up, with great customer service if you need assistance. I bought the radio specifically to use with Pandora, but you can listen to many other stations from around the world, and many genres. The sound is satisfying for me, and I have listened to a broad range of musical styles. The controls are simple and quite intuitive. I like the appearance of the radio very much, kind of modern retro, sleek and unobtrusive.

I love the Pandora concept, so much so that I've been a Pandora One subscriber for some time, more than willing to pay an annual fee to avoid commercials and a few limitations that come with the free version. So, I thought I'd love having Pandora in a box, wirelessly connected to the internet via WiFi, on a shelf in the living room. Unfortunately, I've never been so disappointed in a product as I am with the Livio Radio.

In short, my reasons are: 1) poor sound quality; 2) horribly-written instructions that are guaranteed to waste a lot of your time; 3) clumsy, obtuse interface and a non-intuitive menu system; 4) a remote control which works, at most, within a 9-foot range and which must be pointed directly at the receiver.

True confession, I am an audiophile. But that doesn't mean I expect audiophile quality from a small black box with a relatively small speaker. I have three Tivoli Audio Model Ones for which I paid $99 each and, except for volume limitations, I'm quite happy with. Since the Livio resembles the Model One, I wrongly assumed the audio quality would be similar. The Livio sounds like a cheap clock radio with a wet washcloth draped over the speaker, with dull, muted treble, flat, one-dimensional mid-range, and non-existent bass. Even my wife couldn't stand to listen to it, and she's not an audiophile by any stretch. Some of the problems with the instructions are listed below. Regarding the interface, if it were up to me, I'd refine the menu hierarchy, clarify the choices, indicate where the user should scroll down for further menu items, and find a better way to enter data. I found the remote too small and far too picky about where it's pointed.
