Internet Radio

I wonder if any of u guys can help me with this one....

I'm looking for a radio that does Dab and internet channels for my son for Christmas but i don't want to spend over the odds.

Can anyone suggest maybe something they have bought etc?

Thanks

Re: Internet Radio

How much do you want to spend, maybe wait for Black Friday to get it cheaper, i haven't bought this but you can easily checkout reviews online.

Re: Internet Radio

After 3 decades on the missus listening to French radio on Long Wave, with all the whistling, pops, crackles and fading I bought her a UK brand Majority Internet Radio. Superb sound, loads of preset stations, the ability to set others and at a reasonable price (they often appear on Ebay and Amazon at greatly reduced prices). And loads of modes too (Internet, DAB, FM, USB, pnp, Aux, etc).

Re: Internet Radio

We have a Logitech Squeezebox. Can't fault the internet radio and it streams music from PC to it as well. I wouldn't use DAB or FM even if it had it as have no real need for it.

Re: Internet Radio

Just watch out for more actions like Sony/Warner that have reduced the number of stations on TuneIn in the UK. At least if you listen to overseas stations.

We use those in the Cleanrooms at work, but are now discontinued.

Re: Internet Radio

I was looking to spend around 150ish.

I will wait until Black Friday and see if there are any deals flying around.

3 decades on the missus? And she's never asked you to get off for a bit? Damn - that's a very loving relationship.
