Roku SoundBridge Radio review

1 November 2007
  • Summary: Roku's SoundBridge Radio is a unique product that combines the functionality of a wireless music player, the convenience of an AM/FM table radio, and the practicality of a well-designed alarm clock into a compact—and good sounding—package. It works as advertised and, even better, the more you use it, the more you want to use it. Although it isn't cheap, the SoundBridge Radio's price tag isn't unreasonable.

Great-sounding WiFi clock radio draws from a variety of sound sources

Consumer Electronics Net
4 November 2006
  • Excerpt: The Roku SoundBridge Radio WiFi music system ($400) is much more than just a clock radio. Besides receiving FM and AM broadcasts, it also has WiFi capability. If you have a wireless network, the SoundBridge radio can access music files on any Mac or PC connected to the network. It can also play Internet radio stations, waking you up in the morning with your choice of sound source and dual alarms, too. It does all that with tremendous sound quality.

Roku Radio Review

29 October 2006
  • Conclusion: The last time we had some Roku kit we were mighty impressed, now we have their internet radio offering the R1000. With the ability to join your WiFi network and stream radio and Podcasts from around the world it looks promising.

Review: Roku SoundBridge Radio

28 April 2006
  • Excerpt: (1 items) Two types of audio products that have become popular over the past few years are wireless audio players and table radios. The former—such as Slim Devices’ Squeezebox 2 and 3 and Roku’s SoundBridge models—let you listen, wirelessly, to music stored on a computer or network drive or streamed via the Internet.
  • Pros: Combines a wireless audio player, AM/FM radio, alarm clock, and speaker system in a compact “table radio” package, Works with many music servers and software players, Supports DRM from a number of music services, Easy-to-read display, Easy setup, Good sound quality
  • Cons: No support for Apple Lossless or iTunes Music Store formats, No support for WPA security, No Ethernet jack (wireless only), Some features available only from Radio, others only from remote, No RDS support, Various interface quirks, No line-in jack

Roku SoundBridge M1000

Sound & Vision Magazine
14 April 2006
  • Excerpt: There are several versions of the cylinder-shaped SoundBridge. They differ mainly in the number of lines on the display and the placement of the inputs. The M1000, reviewed here, has a two-line display. Jacks are in the back, though in other versions, they are beneath the removable end-caps at the sides. The M1000 is 10 inches long and 2.5 around with a bright aqua-colored fluorescent display that measures 5.5 inches wide by 1 high.

Roku SoundBridge M1000 review

10 October 2006
  • Summary: Roku was one of the first makers to realise that network music players should not only work but also look the part, and the neat-looking M1000 continues the company’s fine traditions. This unit, like the Philips and Slim Devices, hooks into your stereo amp and (refreshingly) doesn’t cart along a barrow load of proprietary software – yes, the sluttish little Roku will jump into bed with practically any old software, be it iTunes or PlaysForSure, and gaily wears the...
