Specifications and chips used in the WFT-1 set my expectations for this internet radio to be best in class. It may be if you could get past the rather clunky user interface and barely adequate user manual. If you have a wired ethernet connection everything is pretty straight forward and the device can be configured without incident. Setting up wireless connection is a different story. 1.) If you use wireless security and you happen to have down rev WFT-1 firmware the radio makes a nice door stop. For example, you try to enter a 26 character (128 bit) WEP key you find the display does not show the whole key value past a certain number of characters and the method to set the characters by using the tuning knob to select from a list of possible characters stops working as the display software / user interface has a bug(s) in it making it impossible to accomplish this task. Did anybody test these features?
If you are able to connect the WFT-1 using wired network access - you can get a newer copy of WFT-1 firmware which seems to fix the key entry and display bugs I mention. I still cannot connect successfully via wireless - why I am not sure - I don't think its operator error. You won't get any clues from the user manual if you happen to be that rare individual who actually reads product manuals. A couple of calls and an email to tech support in the USA, I was able to get a name and leave a message - no instant resolution and no useful FAQ or support information on the SANGEAN WEB site. Hopefully I'll be able to talk to someone knowledgeable .... soon!

The WFT-1 has an ethernet and USB port - it would be great if you could connect a computer to either port and configure it from there, at least to get the thing up and running.

I have a typical component stereo system and wanted Internet radio without all the hassle associated with a computer. Lucky for me Sangean came out with the WFT-1 right when I started looking for something and it was an obvious fit. Wireless setup was simple and easy and I have yet to use the hardwired connection. The RCA cable plugs right into the AUX port of my amp. The user interface clean and direct. For the most part I use the "Last Listened" to menu item to shuffle between the 10 stations or so I listen to throughout the day. One nice thing about the WFT-1 that might not be immediately obvious is that you can get HD stations and they sound great!

I must concur with the consensus of reviews here: this unit's interface is clunky and its instruction manual is beyond inadequate, BUT...this product is by itself right now in occupying its niche as a component tuner, and if you can get by its shortcomings, it works.

Two caveats: 1) the unit never quite powers down. The "Power" button just puts the unit in standby with the display still active. I noticed this morning after a night of this standby condition that the cabinet was warm. I take from this that I should believe the manual when it cautions to unplug the unit when it's not going to be used for a while. 2) since this unit connects to an internet wifi portal web site to obtain its station lists, when that portal is down for maintenance or whatever you're out of luck.

Overall, I applaud Sangean for its innovation, and I suppose for a first generation unit this is a good product. Be prepared to fiddle with it.

This unit is a brilliant idea executed with absolute stupidity. There are basically three uses intended for this unit:
1. Access internet stations
2. FM radio tuner
3. Music player accessing the music files on your computer

I've had the WFT-1 for three years. It has performed beautifully, and if you read to the end of this review I will reveal a Sangean secret about this unit. My first WFT-1 was defective out of the box, so I shipped it back for a second one, and this one has given me nothing but pleasure - with a few quirks. I use mine strictly via WiFi - the set-up for access to my network was fast and painless. The unit also picks up my computer's MP3 music files via the WiFi network. One of the quirks is that if you have XP Pro or Windows 7 Ultimate you cannot access your files from the computer unless you are logged on as a separate user - i.e., with a password. The audio sonics are very good - many internet stations use a very low-fi bit rate, but those that are around 128-144 kbps will sound as good as an FM station. The unit shows all the specs for any station, as well as the codec it is being broadcast in. Finding stations is very easy - by type, by country, or by call letters or alphabetical listing. I listen to countries around the world, easily and in audiophile sound. Occasionally the unit "forgets" the network connection; I have to unplug it for a second and then plug it in again, and the network connection is renewed. Yes, I keep mine plugged in - the clock goes back to 12:00 when you unplug (but all the network information does not get lost). I use the "standby" button as an on-off switch, although it is still drawing minimal power even in "standby".

The FM tuner is unfortunately another story.
