Summary: I use this to listen to music as I fall asleep, and I use a set of earbuds as a pillow speaker so that I don't disturb my wife in bed next to me. My wireless router is located at the other end of the house and when I plugged in the earbuds the radio would loose signal strength (to approximately 45%) from the wireless router. I would unplug the earbuds and the radio would work fine at that signal strength.
Summary: The Gracedigital radio is very sleek radio and to call this a radio is an understatement. The sound is amazing and setup was very intuitive and had it up and playing my favorite station without even opening up the manual. You will not be disappointed with this product. I'm thinking about buying another one.
Great for old radio shows over the internet plus hundreds of real stations too

Summary: I bought this as a Father's day gift. My father is in his 80s. He does not use the internet, except for google voice search on his android phone. I could not get him to use radio apps on the phone... and thought if it was more like a radio he would use it... It replaces a legacy TV/Radio that received lots of static and hum. The internet radio audio is excellent, except for the occasional outage. In an outage at one station, often other stations are unaffected.
Summary: I debated for months whether to buy this radio or continue to use my computer to stream music from IHeartRadio and Pandora. Using the computer uses valuable bandwith and, she would kill me if she saw this, my wife is technologically challenged and just can't use the computer for this purpose. Anyway, the radio arrived in good condition and within minutes, was unpacked and playing music. It found my home wireless network immediately.
