I own a Roku Radio Soundbridge and like it a lot. Supports Internet radio, UPnP, DAAP (iTunes), Roku Radio, looks nice with big display and sounds great. My only gripe is the lack of a RJ-45 plug to use it wired. For the rest, it's pretty amazing.

What are you looking for (feature like). Don't know much about the other device, the spec on the site are pretty thin

No, it does not have a line output ... I need to take a look, I think it only has a headphone out.

For the rest, I love mine, had it for more than a year and still enjoy it has much as when I got it. If there were not that expensive, I would have one for the garage.

Ok, took a look and there is only a head phone jack.
It's basically a alarm-clock radio, which adds supports DAAP (itunes), UPnP, Internet radio and Roku Radio (all of this wirelessly). So it has it's own speakers (and a small sub). It's sound quite good, it's surprising.

Im surprised, I have a pre-production unit that I got a bit before they were available to general public (long story) and have not gotten a single issue ... Same for my M1001. The only Roku failure I had was with my HD1000 with the PSU (known problem) that I got fixed by Pyramid Audio in Texas (they did a bang up job).
I do hope things will work out ... BTW, how did you buy the unit ? Because some credit card purchase give a warranty extension ...

Hi all, I have the Sangean WFR-20 stereo internet radio. It actually looks like a radio with two built-in speakers. Ideal for stand alone desktop/bedside placement and has headphone and line out for use with your AVR. Can be used with wi-fi or Ethernet hard wired. Equipped for all the main internet radio codecs including OGG, FLAC, and Real (needed for most BBC feeds). I've had mine for several months and am quite pleased with it. Sells for about $300.
