I've only had my Lync-6 system for a month and I've been using the built-in MP3 player and a couple of Apple AirPort Expresses as inputs. I set a computer close by to get Pandora as a source too.

I'm looking for a Internet Radio tuner to take the place of the PC. I would like something I can control with an iPhone, iPad, and web interface.

I'm leaning toward the Grace Digital GDI-IRDT200. It seems to get good reviews and has most the features I want. I don't think I can control it through a web interface though. Are there others in this price range I should consider?

Thanks.
Thad

Thanks for the Sonos suggestion. I hadn't thought of it. It appears to be an impressive device, but it's twice the cost of the Grace Digital unit. I'm not sure I can justify the price difference.

Well since you already have the Airport Express you could just stream Pandora or any other app directly from your iDevice, too.. That's the $0 solution...

But assuming you're storing your music I'm iTunes and using the airport to stream it, and therefore don't need another MP3 or digital library playback solution, the Grace unit looks like it fits your needs...

Since you have a PC available try the free Logitech Media Server and SqueezePlay on your PC. If you like it you can also get a hardware
Squeezebox, all can be controlled with an IOS device or a web page and lots of home automation systems.

If you use iPeng on an IOS device, it can also work as a squeezebox.
