Summary: This internet radio worked well right out of the box. I had no trouble connecting it to my home wireless network. Selecting my 10 preset stations was fast & fun. In addition to the presets, this radio also allows one to store a much larger number of internet radio stations using a scrolling list. The manufacturer provides an excellent website which interfaces the radio to the vast universe of online stations around the world.
Summary: I was very disappointed with this device, would not connect to the Internet (on my network, or even another separate network I tried for troubleshooting), and Grace support is really just terrible. Right out of the box I was able to connect to my router, but no matter what I tried the radio would not connect to the Internet/reciva servers. My first instinct was to check the manual, but there are absolutely no descriptions of any of the error messages or what they mean.
Summary: This is my second Internet Radio. They have been popular in Europe for years and finally seem to be catching on in the U.S.A. The Grace radios are really sweet. Not only can they receive over 13,000 stations from across the world, but Grace supports Pandora, Aupeo and even Sirius (you have to pay for Sirius, but all others are free). The set-up is easy and the sound is incredible.
Summary: This review is for the Grace GDI-IR1000 or GDI-IR2000 internet radio. This product is an updated version of the ITC-IR1000. The only difference between toe 1000 and 2000 is that the 2000 has a remote control. Network setup was relatively straightforward. I don't normally broadcast my SSID, and I use MAC address filtering, so before scanning for my network I turned SSID broadcast on and disabled MAC filtering.
Summary: This is a fantastic radio, I've owned it for just over a week, with no issues. I was very positively surprised with the audio quality produced by the Grace GDI-IR2000. After going into "Equalization", in the Settings Menu, adjusting the Treble and Bass, the sound is amazing. Registering my Grace GDI-IR2000 at Reciva.com was quick and easy. After setting up an account, I put in the S/N and radio ID numbers of my radio, that are found in the settings menu of the radio.
I "had" 2 Great Radios...Would never purchase a Grace product again!

Summary: Third Update (2013): - Both radio's have completely locked up now and won't even turn on. I submitted multiple requests to Grace support online and they never responded. That being the case I would never purchase a Grace product again. *I'm usually very sceptical of reviews who rate products low and will always look around to see if this was just a one off product problem or someone who dislikes a company.
Summary: This is a fantastic Internet radio. I spent days comparing every model I could find and reading all of the reviews and the Grace Wifi Radio had the best combination of price, features, sound and looks. I have had it for three weeks now and I haven't had any issues. The setup was simple and it connects to the stations must faster than my old Acoustic Energy WiFi Radio.
