i finally have wifi in my shop, had to use a yagi antenna and a linksys router with dd-wrt to get it but it works 200 ft from the house and i'm happy. i listen to internet radio a lot in the house. the music i like, commercial free
currently i use my tablet to stream shoutcast radio to an old home stereo with 4 huge craigslist marantz speakers, using a headphone splitter to stereo rca jacks. i'd like to get a dedicated internet radio ad-on to work with my receiver. what's available that doesn't need a tv monitor to stream internet radio? it can be wifi or hardwired ethernet.
i see a lot of $300 internet radio players out there. is there anything cheaper than that? preferably plug into the wall and rca jacks vs a tablet with headphone adapter and charger. plus i'd like my tablet back to read the paper
lots of $100 options, i just picked up 2 harman kardon avr 1700 receivers for $199 each. 5.1 surround, 6 hdmi in, usb, 100 watts per channel, universal remote AND network capable. you'd think that internet radio would be a $49 box. i should have picked up a 3rd hk 1700 for the shop.
anyone else have ideas for cheap internet radio?
Original XBOX with XBMC $15-$25 been using it for years.
thanks for the replies guys. sangean only has headphones out to the receiver. sangean has some nice stuff with rca out for the receiver but they want $200 to $40 just for the radio. and xbox requires use of a tv to tune it. my tablet works for now. just thought there would be a $49 fix to my search. my neighbor has an old android phone that i may try, it still works on wifi. you'd think that with new bluray players going for $49 with netflix, pandora and 10 other apps, that i'd be able to find an internet radio add-on for my receiver for cheap.
I can't find the HK AVR 1700 at that price. Are they used, refurb or new, and where? Thanks.
bestbuy had new hk avr 1700 for $199 in december and january. smoking deal, msrp is $599. not worth that price but well worth the $199 price.
I'll use camelcamelcamel to track.
Looks like BB is no longer carrying it so I will try amazon.
