How would you like to have 30,000 radio stations at your fingertips, streamed wirelessly to your little world, for a little over $200?
Yup, we thought that sounded like a pretty good proposition. It can be had with the new Tuner Wireless Radio and Media Player from Grace Digital Audio, which taps into numerous web radio stations and web streaming audio sites to deliver more music than you can possibly handle.
Among the many Internet options you get to choose from are Reciva, iheartradio, CBS Radio, Pandora, Premium Sirius Internet Radio, Live365, MP3tunes, NOAA and NPR.
If you have a lot of music stored on your PC or Mac, you can access that media as well over the player’s 802.11g WiFi that’s built-in, or plug into the Ethernet jack.
Then, of course, you can also plug the Tuner Wireless Radio and Media Player into your larger and higher-performance home stereo system to get some bigger bang from all of those tunes.
Another wrinkle from Grace Digital is that along with the included full function remote for the player, you can also use your iPhone/iPod touch to command everything by downloading the Grace Digital Audio Remote Control App at no cost.
Look for the new player for $219.
