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.
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.
Excerpt: Convergence shows many faces to music lovers. If you've got the bucks, you can add a hard-drive-based music server to your system. Or you can pay a custom installer to bring IP-based networking to every room in the house.
Conclusion: Le récepteur audionumérique signé Roku a presque tout pour lui. Particulièrement bien conçu, efficace, il jouera parfaitement son rôle de diffuseur à condition de faire l’impasse sur la musique achetée sur iTunes Music Store.
