Does anyone have any information on the internet radio? Is it any good and is it value for money. Are there any products to compare it to?

Going by the product name, It probably similar to other internet radios that use the "Reciva" gateway, there is a web site explaining how the station lists work:
http://corporate.reciva.com/products_and_technology/stations_lists.asp
#7
Internet radios that use reciva can play mp3 (including aac), wma and real media, so I'm guessing yes you can (I have a Logik internet radio and it can certainly play those media types).

You can also add your own stations to your profile if they aren't available in the station list.
#8
Probably a silly question, but do these need a really strong signal to work well? I'd like to get one but it will be mainly used in the garage which is separate from the wireles router in the house!

If I can get a signal on my PSP will this radio work?

The Logik IR100 from Currys at £49.99 is a great buy. This item has been subject to a few price cuts over the last 12 months. I have 2 and can confirm excellent quality.
#11
Take a look at http://www.reciva.com/ lots of info there & lets you listen to the same stations as you get on the Reciva sets.
#12
i wonder if the dab media player can take a memory card?

Does it run on batteries also ? Would be a first for a net radio if so
#14
Hi, Any idea's how this compares to the two internet radios that DSG are selling?

http://www.dixons.co.uk/martprd/product/seo/Audio/Internet+Radio/Logik/IR100/901880
http://www.currys.co.uk/martprd/product/seo/Audio/Internet+Radio/Logik/LOG+IRMA1/754555

Think that the Logic IR100 doesn't have stereo speakers but the Tevion offering from Aldi does other than that I'm not sure which of these is worth buying.
Tevion kit generally is well made though imho.

Best Regards.
#15
apparently the IR100 suffers from a bad hum because the transformer is inside the unit (from reviews I've read). It also doesn't have any line out (only a headphone socket).

I have the IRMA1 and it's not bad for the price. There's no hum, it has line out and a headphone socket, and it's remote control. There are better internet radios on the market (roku soundbridge springs to mind), but for 59.99 I personally think it's worth it.

Hi Chris52, This is a good question. I'd tried to find out more on this whilst considering buying a similar product from DSG however failed to find any info'. Whilst I've not been able to answer your question I think that this question is a very valid one that people who are considering buying one of these don't necessarily realise needs to be taken into consideration. These are quite thirsty where bandwidth is concerned particularly for customers who are on ADSL broadband packages that have a low monthly capped limit. BTOpenworld used to have a bandwidth calculator for customers to determine which package was best suited for their needs but I've tried and failed to find this nor another one online. Does anyone have any ideas at all?.

HTH.

There are some online calculators such as:
http://mynetusage.info/data-usage-calculator

That one assumes the audio streams are 64k, but many internet radio stations use 128k or higher so you need to check the actual bit rate of your favourite radios stations (easy to see for PC software players such as Winamp) and adjust the calculation.

Apparently a 44k stream will use 20MB an hour though I have never had a capped ISP so would'nt know

Hi, Excellent. Thank you for that. Like I say I'd tried and failed dismally to find a bandwidth useage calculator. Think I was using the wrong search terms on Google. :thumbsup:

according to the pdf manual for the 2gig portable dab, you should not over charge it. Doesnt sound good that it does not have intelligent charging.

Wonder if the inet radio supports bbc listen again?
#21
IR100 is supporting Listen Again (from what i read on Reciva portal).
banned#22
anyone know then about batteries ??
#23
I have been looking into getting a WiFi Internet radio for some time, mainly to replace my bedside alarm clock, which this one does not have :-( but when I was looking into them before I read that most of them require access to unprotected routers, that means to me that if your router is password protected you will not be able to use it :thinking: I know that since moving to a password environment for the house pc's I am unable to connect my PDA to the network.

For this reason I am still in two minds if I should get the radio or not, would Aldi's accept it back if it needs an unprotected network as I don't want to have an open router again so technically it is not faulty. ??????
#24
TBH, I never heard of any radio which requires unprotected WiFi access. Most of the older ones can work with WEP and newer ones can use WPA.
#25
I see (as has been said above) that Currys are doing the Logik IR100 for £49.99 now and it has a clock/alarm on it.. from some of the reviews I have been reading I might leave my Aldi one for someone else and save a few £££'s as well :whistling:

What about this hum everyone is talking about? is there a new wave of IR's due on the market soon, I now Phillips do some and the look nice but they seem to be part of an integrated package.. arrrrrrrgh
#26
just wondering how long the bat last on the 2gig dab, as im a postie like to listen to radio and would be great to listen to dig stations like kiss or sumit, but just wondering if it is worth getting if the bat is only going too last a couple of hours at tops

I am not quite sure if IR100 is the best as a bedroom radio. I don't have one, so my comments are based on what I read. Basically, the radio produces a noise (humming) even when not in use. Unless you disconnect it from power. Some people can hear it, some can't. Also there was a second revision of this radio and some people reported that the problem doesn't exist anymore (but then again, some still say there is a problem!).

As to alarm one, have you tried [url=http://www.shop.philips.co.uk/katalog_/ctl3590/cp36428/si2552947/cl3/Wireless_Music_Station]Philips WAK3000?

Picked up the Internet Radio this morning. Pile of junk - going straight back !

It is much smaller than it looks. FM sound is just about OK but hardly hi-fi. It is cheap looking with too small and all same control buttons. User interface is not good. It is mains power only.

Scanning for WiFi networks it found mine - entered key and connected all fine but hung when "downloading update". Did a reset then factory reset and now won't connect at all, hangs with message "initializing network"

Something even more important. According to the leaflet I was given Aldi have changed their Ts&Cs and returns now have to be WITHIN 30 DAYS. Although it's what everyone else does it is bad news and means I'm less likely to use them in future.

did any one get the media dab player is that any good?

I saw that put you need to have the complete system to make this work I think, from what I gather this is an add on parts and not a stand alone.

BTW - my Aldi set is hanging as well and the help desk suggested I return it for another one, how many others have now had the same problem :w00t:

This device is UPnP AV compatible. Install TVersity server and it'll work with it. You don't have to buy complete system.

Yep getting the hanging problem with receiver update. It's got pontential but needs a few firmware updates to make it worth while. You can alter the bass and treble btw this does help quite a bit but guess what the settings are not stored so when you turn on again you've lost them . I wou'dnt write the radio off completly. Anyone who owns the first wi-fi radio to appear in 2005 from AE has been spoilt as this is a 'real' wi-fi radio the rest are Im afraid poor imitations
#33
I was under impression that AE is pretty much the same radio as anything else reciva-based (bar audio path)?

BTW, there is a new radio from Roberts in the pipeline. The first responses were quite positive (see Reciva website).

Better wi-fi range for a start and nicer bigger display, it was the frirst on the block and expensive too at £200. It has a few additional options like a 30 step display dimmer

I've heard about a combined wi-fi/DAB/DRM radio

That's what I think they are planning and will probably arrive just in time for Christmas, although I have heard the Swedish (I think) have dropped the DAB signals as money wasters.

Thanks for the Philips clue K :thumbsup:
