This item has been posted before, stocks ran out unfortunately & the deal was expired.

But after an absence of a few months, this nifty piece of kit is back in stock at Amazon. So nifty, in fact, I've just ordered a third for my own home. A genuinely innovative product and a bargain at £48.92. Free super saver delivery too or a free one month trial of Amazon Prime for next day delivery (don't forget to cancel !)

"What is Internet Radio?

In a nutshell, Internet Radio lets you listen to the radio via the Internet without having to log on to a computer. These radios pick up stations and on-demand content which are streamed on the Internet via a broadband connection.

Internet radio has no geographic locations so a broadcaster in China can be heard in the UK. The number of available Internet radio stations is always rising but at the last count there are over 10,000 stations you can listen to, meaning access to uptodate news and music from all over the world. And, since lots of stations store their back catalogue of shows, you can even listen on-demand if you miss something you love.

What is the GX-01?

The Intempo GX (affectionately called Galaxy at Intempo Towers) is Intempos first Internet Radio and is officially loved by the popular gadget magazine, T3 (November issue)

The GX has been hailed as one of the easiest Internet Radios to use. When it is in range of a wireless connection then it will automatically detect the network and offers the option to connect. Once this link is established, the GX will upload channel listings alphabetically by country and genre.

You can also use a network cable and hardwire your GX, meaning that you dont necessarily have to have Wi-Fi in your home to listen to news and music from around the world. The GX can also cleverly stream music saved on your PC over your home wireless network and also features an impressive Podcast directory on the top level menu, meaning you dont need a PC or MP3 player to listen to your favourite podcasts!

Its even got a USB port for memory stick support plus a handy remote control with 99 presets.

The GX is the perfect kit for radio enthusiasts and music lovers; you can enjoy talk radio, sports radio, political debates and news on current global issues plus a melting pot of global music. You can also connect it to some powerful Intempo speakers and the GX will cleverly be transformed from a stand-alone unit .

# Access to real-time music and news from over 8,000 radio stations all over the world

# Streams music from your PC over your home network
# Podcast directory
# Access to on-demand stations

Wow, this sounds impressive.

But for those of us who are not really techi's....

Does this have DAB ?

Does it pich up AM, MW and FM when internet not available?

Is it mains connected ?

Does the USB mean I can put my mp3's on it and it will play them?.....

Awesome

Been in the market for an internet radio for a while now, but wasn't prepared to spend £150 quid on one.

£48.00 can't be bad!

By the way check out KQLZ pirate radio in LA I think....cheesy big hair 80'90's rock!

ROCK ON

Voted hot:thumbsup::)

Do these radios need an 'open' wi-fi connection, or do they have some method of inputing an encryption key?
#4
I bought one of these last time the deal was up and have to say I've been very impressed.

It doesn't have dab or normal analogue (so no normal am, fm etc)... you have to have wireless internet to get stations. If your internet is down you can stream music from windows media player from your PC and if your wireless isn't working at all you can play music off a USB memory stick via the slot at the front.

It's mains connected. And it does support encryption keys - WEP and WPA.

The range of stations is fantastic, there's 1000s and well categorised. The best feature is range of podcasts and on demand broadcasts available... means you can listen to your favourite Radio 4 shows from the week.

Well worth 50 quid

Can you tell me if the alarm features are any good mate? Is it suitable as a wake up alarm clock? How many different alarms can you set? Thanks!

Just be aware that you need to broadcast your SSID for the unit to work.
#8
Greatest thing for me is how the presets work.

You can register your own radio online at [url]www.reciva.com[/url] ... that website has listings for several thousand radio stations. Couple of clicks there & you can then set your presets online, which are then broadcast back to your own radio. Having 2 of these radios, with a 3rd on order, it means I can change my favourites online for all 3 radios at the same time.

So straightforward like you wouldn't believe :-)

Bought one of these a few months back, and it's superb. Unfortunately all questions asked are not a yes, as it does not have DAB or AM/FM.

Yes you can use an encryption key on your network :).

is this compatible with macs? eg stream music from my itunes?
#11
I've been looking for one of these for a while now but didn't want to pay the £150 that was asked for them . Less than £50 is a bargain that i can't let go so i've just put my order in . Hope that it's all that i expect it to be . Cheers .....

This is a good deal. I've had an Acoustic Energy Wi-Fi Radio for over 2 yrs (RECIVA-based) and can honestly say it's one my favourite things ever.

For those interested in these devices, and the selection available, which is expanding every month, this is a useful site

Thanks for that. I've been looking for an internet radio for a while. I want to be able to listen to BBC Listen Again broadcasts. At the moment radios that use the Frontier Scientific chips (eg the Roberts WM202 or the Binatone one at Argos) aren't great for that as you can't pause, restart, FF or REW. An updated chipset is coming from Frontier in a couple of months.

There were 3 left when I first clicked the link. I read a couple of reviews and it was down to 2. I decided to order there and then instead of going via Nectar.com. Its now out of stock at Amazon, although there are marketplace sellers.
#14
Followed the link... the units are all used stock, with various amounts of minor damage as far as I can see.... and not from Amazon itself, but from Warehouse Deals.
#15
Dam looks like i've missed out ...again !:x
#16
Damnation, the new ones from Amazon are all sold out again :-(

Sorry to the folks who have missed out, hopefully they'll be offering it again once stock comes back in. And all the best to folks who managed to get their order in.

I'll expire this one now.

Thanks folks.
#17
for those that missed out.

this is a good alternative:

This radio and the Vistron MX200i from Ebuyer use the chips from [url]www.reciva.com[/url]

Reciva have a beta test underway for new firmware, which is supposed to be pretty good. The beta test is closed to new people now. Hopefully it shouldn't be long before they release it. You could use the sharpfin firmware, if you don't mind voiding your warranty http://sharpfin.zevv.nl/

There are also a few Logik IR100 radios at Currys for ~ £40. When these were new, they had a lot of problems. Most of these can be fixed http://logikir100.tripod.com/Logik.htm but it will mean voiding your warranty.

There have not been that many new internet radios for a while, particularly in the sub £50 price bracket

My GX-01 arrived today. It worked OK when I was at work, although I noticed some clicking from the speaker. At home in my bedroom, the wireless reception is quite poor, and at low volumes, the clicking is really bad. It works fine with a wired network connection, or wireless if I have it right next to the router.

It seems that this is a common problem. https://www.reciva.com/index.php?option=com_joomlaboard&Itemid=77&func=view&catid=3&id=28468

I tried the Intempo support. Their line was that it was working if the clicking went away with a wired network, so I'm returning it to Amazon for a refund.

Perhaps I could use a wired connection with a homeplug, but it would be much nicer if the wireless worked.

BTW, it came with the v257-a-221-a-006 firmware. I upgraded it to the v257-a-421-a-057 firmware from the configure menu.

.
When listening to a station press the back button until the screen shows; Station, Configure, Media Player as a vertical list, scroll down to Configure, press select, you'll get Version and underneath Update Firmware, pressing select at version will display the version installed pressing it at firmware update will say if an update is available and ask Yes / No do you want to download


When you do this, its best to do it near the router, as if it loses connectivity, bad things happen.

Ho hum. My search continues for a wireless internet radio at a sensible price that plays BBC listen again programs, where you can pause, restart, rewind and fast forward. Apparently, the new Venice 6.2 chips from Frontier Scientific will do this, and they should be available from ~April.
#20
****** - just realised that I should have bought this.

Does it have a line-in for MP3 players?

Hopefully will come back in stock.

Not sure I like the look of the other one posted,,,,,
#21
yes it does have an aux line
