Too bad they don't make them anymore, but my best clock radio is the Roku R1000. While a little big, the sound is superb and everything is so smart and easy to use. My power supply died on it (like almost everyone), but I paid to get it fixed and love it. In the meantime, I tried other models like the Pure Siesta Flow (very small, but not logical in design) and a Grace IR1000B which is unstable.
I love listening to morning shows from France while falling asleep at night.

I do have the google nexus phone as a spare which i plan to use with the i home ibn97.
I will see how that goes. If I'm not happy I will return the i home.

|cafebrad||i would also recommend your old smartphone if u have one or a cheap tablet, or a dock for your current device with extra speakers. a few options there and possibly alot cheaper than a new internet clock|

While you're deciding on the best solution, here's an excellent Android app to wake you from your tablet or phone:
With wired or wireless speakers, the sound quality should be equal to the Grace model I suggested, but almost free.

ugh i dunno what to do or how to do it.
I am currently looking into options.
I do prefer a stand alone unit. But I will see once I investigate more.
Thanks everyone for suggestions.

Hmm but I want the better sound than comes from a tablet etc.
I did check out Grace and not the most favorable of reviews.
But might do the trick.
I will keep researching.

|NeilN||I looked into this a couple years ago and decided that for my use case (i.e., sleep to podcasts or "new age music" stations, wake up to CBC radio) my iPad with a good alarm clock app would do the trick.|

alarm clock w/ internet radio player?
Not sure if this the proper section for my question BUT....
My alarm clock is dying. And I have always had my eye on devices that have lots of internet stations available via wifi.
I would like a dedicated device to do this. Music I can listen to in my bedroom and use as my alarm clock as well. Wake/sleep.
