From the Manufacturer
Now you can enjoy the excitement of accessing over 16,000 Internet radio stations through your home theater system when you add a new Sangean WFT-1 Component Internet Radio Tuner. In addition, enjoy any of your local standard FM broadcasts using the built-in FM tuner with RDS. Or upload your favorite Internet station using Sangean WFT-1's "My Station" feature allowing quick and easy future access. The Sangean WFT-1 offers the ultimate way to add Internet radio to your existing home stereo or home theater setup.
Wireless Internet Radio
You no longer need to be glued to your computer to access your favorite Internet station, nor do you even have to have your computer on. All you need is a broadband Internet connection and a wired or wireless router. Add to your listening pleasure by creating your own Digital Music Library with 20 preset stations.
Stream Music from PC, Mac, or USB
The WFT-1 can connect to your home network to stream audio content from your PC or Mac. The WFT-1 supports MP3, WMA, AAC+ and Real Audio files. In addition, it can connect to Windows Shares and UPnP devices if your music is stored on a network-attached storage (NAS) device.
In addition, the WFT-1 features a USB port to play music off of a USB thumb stick or flash drive.
Attractive Styling for Your Home Entertainment System
The cabinet of the WFT-1 is attractively styled to match most home theater systems. Simply plug it in to a power outlet, connect the outputs, and you're ready to connect to your home wireless network and enjoy Internet radio through your home entertainment system. It is Real Audio, MP3, AAC+ and WMA compatible. A full-function remote control is included.
Connect Wired or Wirelessly
The Sangean WFT-1 Internet radio can connect to your home broadband network via the built-in Ethernet port or via Wi-Fi. The Wi-Fi antenna supports 802.11b/g networks and supports WEP and WPA (TKIP) encryption.
While the WFT-1 works great in any room, an alarm and a sleep timer make the WFT-1 ideal for bedroom stereo setups. Choose to wake to the FM tuner, your favorite Internet radio station, or a buzzer.

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.Read more ›
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.
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.Read more ›
