The SOLO Wi-Fi Radio Receiver by Grace Digital is a fabulous add on to a home theatre/stereo system or outdoor speakers. The SOLO connects your home stereo directly to your Internet without the need of a computer. You can listen to over 18,000 AM / FM free radio and HD stations including Pandora, NPR, CBS, BBC, Sirius, iheartradio, and much more! You can save up to 10 station presets on the front of the radio. The SOLO also has an included remote control App for an iPhone/iTouch that I have used with great success. This product is super easy to set up and I had absolute no problem taking it right out of the box and using it immediately. The SOLO connects to any wireless broadband router in minutes and also connects to your home stereo via the built in RCA left and right connectors (wires supplied).

It's hard to imagine a time when radio was the only form of home entertainment. The golden age of radio -- the period when radio reached its peak popularity with general audiences -- was in the 1930s and 1940s. Strangely, part of this period was during the great depression in North America when people were out of work and doing without most luxuries. Radio and its wide range of live music, comedy, variety shows, and dramatic programming served as a welcome escape from those troubled times. Sound FAMILIAR?

Whether in depression or recession, in good times and bad, radio has stood the test of time. Now with the internet, podcasts, streaming, and the like, you can listen to good ol' FREE radio from all over the entire world with Grace Digital's SOLO. Ok, ok... nothing in this world is free. You must have a wi-fi connection to use this product, but WOW, what a product!

I was born in 1970 and love the oldies. And by oldies, I mean OLDIES! The radio of the 1920's - 1940's is one of my favorite genres. The comedy routines of Fibber McGee & Molly, Burns & Allen, Jack Benny, & Edgar Bergen & Charlie McCarthy are classics. The radio serials like The Shadow, Inner Sanctum, & Orson Welle's Mercury Theatre STILL can send a chill up the spine. With the advent of internet radio, you can listen to programs like this and SO MUCH MORE!

ANY and I mean any type of music from anywhere in the world can be enjoyed. All types of talk radio on ANY kind of subject you can think of is accessible through the SOLO.

I have hooked this up to my stereo and tested it, hooked it up to my outdoor wireless speakers and it works splendidly. I, personally have not experienced ANY and I mean ANY static or bad reception with this product. See my other review on the INNOVATOR III from Grace Digital also. All in all, the SOLO is a wonderful product and great addition to any radiophile's home!

Highly Recommended!
