Your Online Source for Easy Listening and Beautiful Music Info
Did you know...many of these same stations are available on an internet radio? In order to use an internet radio, you'll need a broadband connection and a wi-fi router. The cost of internet radios have come down considerably in the last couple of years. Originally, these went for around $300+, but now a good internet radio can be purchased for $100-$150. I own two of them here at home...one of these I hook to my stereo and the other one functions as a radio/clock radio. The setup isn't as difficult as you might think. Although I know a little bit about computers, I am not computer-savvy by any means. I was concerned when I bought my first internet radio about a year and half ago, that it was going to be a nightmare setting up to my wi-fi connection. It really wasn't though...and with a few small snags, I was able to hook up the radio and have it playing beautiful music in 15 minutes.
So...you might ask...why bother buying an internet radio, when one can just listen to an internet stream via a computer? Here's why:
These are just a few of the advantages of owning an internet radio. Once you begin listening to an internet radio and are no longer tethered down to a computer, you will really be able to enjoy beautiful music just like you did years ago on AM and FM radio. The music is still there for us to enjoy...it's just being sent primarily via the internet.
This is the model I use in my bedroom as a clock radio. It's the basic Grace model, and the radio works great! They have excellent customer service, too, so if you do need help setting up your radio. These can be ordered through amazon for around $115. The price will flucutate...sometimes they are slightly more, and other times less.
