In many ways, digital radio is a lot like looking for a partner: there is something out there for every taste. All those stations ready for your listening pleasures at your fingertip, from slow jazz to hip hop, rap to classic...and everything inbetween. Here are a few new internet radio options we like...
Grace Digital Allegro Wireless Internet Radio: The Grace Digital Allegro Wi-Fi radio (GDI-IRD4000) is a combination Internet radio and audio media streaming device that is fully portable. We love the fact that you can listen to 16,000+ radio stations from NPR, FOX news, CNN, BBC, CBS to KROQ, over 35,000 podcasts, 20,000+ On-Demand subscription streams or your personal Pandora radio stations, all using either standard AC power or either AA or rechargeable NiMH battery power. Additional features include integration with Pandora, the ability to stream files from local computer networks, compatibility with the free Grace remote control App for iPhone/iTouch, equalization setting and an enlarged snooze bar used in alarm clock functionality.
Sony XDRF1HD HD Radio Tuner: The model features an easy-to-read display and includes a wireless remote control. The sound is crystal clear, and no subscription fees. With static-free sound and an easy-to-read dot matrix LCD for viewing important information, this is a great choice for adding HD radio reception to a home audio system. HD Radio programming is free, unlike satellite radio where you have to purchase a subscription.
It's the most significant advancement in radio broadcasting since the introduction of FM stereo. HD Radio technology enables AM and FM radio stations to broadcast their programs digitally--unlike the analog broadcasts of the past, HD Radio gives you the clarity of a precise digital signal for ultra-high fidelity and reception. And it's all free. Just connect the receiver to most systems using the audio out jack and enjoy the many HD radio stations available now, all on your existing stereo or home theater equipment.
