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
I want a radio that i can can get internet radio stations on etc.I was looking at units with the speaker built in.But the roku looks like a very good unit.Can i just hook it up to my computer speakers?
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.
I got the roku's radio and this radio is very good (got all what I need) internet radio.. very good sound for the size and sound quality is good too.. no problem to connect.. and a snooze is on too lol and yes for the 3.5 plug this is just a headphone jack.. there have no input but a sd card reader (I dont try to use SDHC) but I got this very good radio for about one year... and nowhere little time after the one year warrenty is end.. my radio stop... dont want open!! one day nowhere.. I try to get one RMA but I dont know if he will cover without my warrenty :S this is a big problem for a radio that I take big care of them and I bought about 450$!!?? ((sorry for my english this is not my first language)) lol
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.
