Damian, New Zealand (online) Music fan

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Sound quality and reception are great. Much better wireless reception than other internet radios I have now and previously had. Sound quality is very good for such a small unit.
Bad points:
Been around for a few years, this is my second unit after the first got blown by a dodgy appliance plugged in to the same box. Menu controls are clunky compared to more modern units.

Tony, Taunton Spoken-word listener

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
The case is solid and rigid, this contributes to very good sound quality for a unit this size. It is well finished as well.
The design of the case is pleasing, neat and functional.
The press button controls are positive.
The yellow on balck display is clear but its a little small so the fonts are small, which means I have to put my glasses on to read it.

Great to get have internet radio by my bed.

The Lounge does'nt hava a link to my favoutate interned radio station 'WUMB Boston' (a talk & music station) it has a link to 'WUMB Contemporary Folk' (a music streaming station) which is good but not as good.
Bad points:
I'm 65 and I find it dificult to navigate from source to source and from station to station and for combinations thereof.

Navigation would be much easier if it was intuitive, which it doesn't seem to be fore me, a 65 year old. It may be intuitive for young people who have grown up with digital devices, which is good but that does not help me.... so it would be good if the instructions included a simple map or flow chart of all the menu links to aid navigation for my generation.

There is no RDS on FM

Ian, Horsham, WSx Music fan

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
a) Digital radio Sound or internet sound is just awesome compared to FM.
b) I found it easy to set up.
Bad points:
a) With so many internet radio stations, use of the 'favourites' will be key. There is almost too much choice. I mean, in Russia, there is a radio station JUST playing Pink Floyd. It bacomes easier searching with filters.
b) This is a long term thing, but it occurs to me that if the screen ever failed then the entire device becomes next to useless as it would be just pot luck as to what you could listen to. However, this is going to be true of any modern device.
