Found 25th May 2008Made hot 25th May 2008
I was in Aldi earlier and noticed that the Tevion Internet Radio I have had my eye on for a while was reduced to just £29.99...!!!

At that price it would have been rude NOT to buy it. This price was not a managers special and my local branch had loads of them. I bought two and have just fired them up, upgraded the firmware and taken one down to the garden shed, Works a treat.!

Thousands of internet radio statios, built in FM radio, Streams from your NAS or Windows PC share. I am streaming via Twonky media from my Qnap NAS and it's absolutely fantastic, Complete bargain!! grab em while you can.....

btw: also comes with a 3 year warranty. Nice.

Yup, I'm doing it with MP3's as we speak..!

It supports Windows share drives AND UPnP via WMP11/Twonky..! Nice, Really easy to set up.

EDT: ooooh! Also just found a headphone port, meaning I can hook it up to a small amp if needed!

Just RTFM'd this and it states:

The media player allows you to play audio files (AAC, AIFF, AU, MP3, RM, WAV and WMA) and supports playlists (M3U) on a networked PC.It has been varified to work on Win 2K, XP and Vista.

Think that may help some of you.

imiskeen,

Thanks for the info....gonna pick one of these up tomorrow, nice one!

seems very good but i just don't need one.

nonetheless, hot.................

why not just have Windows Media Player or whatever Player you prefer, play streams in the background on your PC?

maybe you want to listen to music away from your pc

:-DI love this place...full of wonderful happiness....I totally agree with our Dutch friend Imiskeen....for 30 squid it is a must have.....sorry blasphemous:p

Well, peeed off with this!!..I bought one 2 weeks ago for £49.99!!.Can wholeheartedly recommend this player, it goves good quality sound and is fairly easy to use (apart from setting up the playing MP3 files from my computer, which I just can't suss out!!) - voted hot

Thanks for the vote, All I did to set up MP3 streaming was click on the media player option on the radio, it scanned my wireless network and found my UPnP server straight away (Twonky Media) it then asked me to select which folder I wanted to access. (I had previously set up my shared folders in Twonky config on my NAS/PC but that was just a case of selecting my music folder. quite easy really (even for a technically challenged person like me!)

I can't speak for windows media player server but it just kinda worked for me?? Perhaps it's Twonky media software that makes it really easy??

If you can grab hold of a 29 pound one, ALDI let you return the 49 pound radio within 28 days as far as I know

Well as Aldi offer a 30-day money back returns policy it would work out that even if you don't have all the original packaging etc:
+ go in and buy a 2nd one at new price of £30
- return the 2nd one with your 1st receipt (within its 30 days) and get refund of £50
= 1st one at 2nd price

Are Aldi deals normally nationwide?

Mains only.;-)

Any ideas how it compares with the above deal? Apart from the price, which is the better quality product?

(sorry for cross posting)

Also, does any one know what the Bank Holiday opening times are?

Deals are only listed for the forthcoming Thursday & Sunday deals + occasionally one or two high value items that they presumably still have massively overstocked from previous Thu/Sun specials.

This was a special last August'ish at something like £65 and has been progressively put more and more to one side in the in-store displays and reduced ever more ££ since as they failed to shift them. Some people have adverse experience/views on it if you Google.

Ah, ok thanks. I will have a look in my local store tomorrow:thumbsup:

Do I need a wireless router?

£24.99 in Aldi near Durham.

Hi,£24.99 near me & on a proper sign ie not a handmade one,by one of the staff.So should be this in at least most stores.
It works reasonably well,update when you get it to latest FW,if it hasn't got it on.
Its not bad on FM as well.
Think best bet is to create playlists for streaming(awkward/slow to navigate with Radio itself,unless someone knows a good way),but havn't played about with it much.
I find sound better with default bass level,turned down a bit.
Supports here:-

unisupport.net/

Look in forum for threads concerning it.
Shame i paid a lot more for this when it came out :-(
Theres a identical looking DAB version,you might see that in some stores reduced?prob reduced more than it as been in the past as well.


Cheers BOB
ps last FW version solved a lot of probs,peeps have knocked it in the past.Prob still got the odd little one.One peep wanted it not to lose his set bass level,when turned off from the mains,doubt this as been fixed.But mines plugged in all the time,so no prob for me.

Voted hot - perfect for the garage or garden!

if ur not a tekki i wouldn't but this because to make use of its features you'll need to know how set-up a network then allow it to have access, may sound easy but can be a real headache if you incur a problem at some stage. Also to use mp3s from ur PC to stream your PC needs to be on not sure if thats the case for internet radio.

Excellent deal, Rep & Heat added.:thumbsup:
Whilst we are talkin streamin audio does anyone know whats the best setup for wireless streaming of Video and audio from my pc to my HDtv downstairs using a remote controlled setup to watch any media from my pc, inc. web streaming. Any ideas most appreciated.
I know All for one have a pc tp tv sender with remote anyone ever used this?
Cheers.

Right, so this reply is going to make me sound really geeky!:oops: BUT: I use an Archos 604 wifi to stream all of my HD video upstairs. To be honest it's brilliant. But you need to have the DV station to make the most of it. Cost approx £140 - 160 if you REALLY shop around. I would recommend a v.good wireless router maybe a rangemax or vigor to get the most out of the 604 but I have to say it's the best thing I've come accross that isn't a PS3.

ahem, the PS3 has pride of place in the lounge. Oh god that did it, I really am sad.:whistling:

Thanks for the "money back" hints..

Looks a good price for what you're getting but I don't get this "streaming" concept. If I wanted to listen to my mp3's or whatever on it, with the convenience of switching on a radio or CD player, I'd need to leave the PC on 24/7? Wasteful?! Coz it'd be a pain having to turn boot the PC up just for some tunes....

Great price for the item although I use a squeezebox which is arguably the best purchase I've ever made. If you've got the cash - get the squeezebox.

I assume by the title it can also stream some Internet radio stations.

Might be handy if the station you like is internet only (and supported) or if the stations signal is rubbish but they have an internet stream.

Oh I totally agree with you about the SqueezeBox. It really is brilliant and straightforward enough (once set up :)) for my lady wife (she really is a technophobe) to love and use it too. Since Logitech bought the company, they have spent so much time and cash improving the software/firmware that it almost gets better every day.

Having said all that, you can buy 5 of these Aldi boxes for the same amount of money. :-D:-D

If you are looking for something closer to basic, then this box from Aldi is very hard to beat. So much so that I will probably buy one for the garage, if my local Aldi has any. (Didn't see them when I was in there on Thursday)[/SIZE]

or you could spend £4 on an FM transmitter, and listen to your computer all over the house on every radio, all in perfect sync. Perfect for using 'listen again' from the BBC.

My FM transmitter draws power from a USB port (no battery bother) and the sound quality is surprisingly good.
For example radio 4 sounds better when the internet stream is broadcast locally than tuning in to regular FM.

Of course your local radio signals may be a bit better than mine.

If you really want to get fancy, then what i do is use my iphone as a remote control. VNSea is the brilliant app which lets me control my computer from the iphone screen. (you first need to 'jailbreak' your iphone with ziphone - takes 5 mins)

Based on the reviews: They will both do WPA, but only Aldi does WPA2 encryption. Aldi unit requires firmware upgrade to achieve WPA2.
The Aldi unit also has FM radio so you can use it as an "old" radio if PC is broken or internet is down.
They both have remotes. The Vistron appears to have only one speaker, so is therefore only mono through the radio itself (?), although one reviewer says the sound through his hi-fi system is very good (connected via the headphone socket) and that is presumably stereo.
The Vistron controls are on the front of the unit, which means it could live "inside" something. The Aldi buttons are on the top, so it would have to live on top of your bedside table, or whatever, although I suppose it depends how good the remotes are.
They both have the "on demand" feature and Reciva.
Hope that helps.

I'd get one but my wireless area doesn't reach my shed at the end of the garden. Heat added

I have a D-LINK DSM330 which I purchased from Amazon. It really is a superb pice of kit, effortlessly streaming video (inc. HD content), audio and photos plus some online content via plugins (Facebook, Google Maps, Flickr etc.). It also has a great interface, browsing via movie poster images, album covers etc. I had tried various solutions previously - I use it primarily for streaming video - and always had problems. No problems with this one. Highly recommended.

Also, just noticed when getting the link that it's now on offer for £99.99 - I paid the full £130! Snap it up at this price!

Thanks for the heads-up on this radio, I'll have a look today. They're open 10-4
