The marriage between the WFT-1 and the NAS is pretty much all I'd hoped for

Summary: I've owned the Sangean WFT-1 for almost a year and use it primarily for listening to music that I have stored on my Network Attached Storage (NAS). The marriage between the WFT-1 and the NAS is pretty much all I'd hoped for: my entire music library at my finger tips and a means of sending that music into my component stereo system.
Summary: I gave it 5 stars, because I do love it in fact, but that doesn't mean it's perfect. First off, this tuner in fact DOES NOT receive HD Radio, in the US version. (HD Radio is the name given to the US version of digital audio broadcast, which is transmitted on the same band and frequency channel as the analog signal of a station, in the AM and FM bands.) This is not a big deal, because you can usually find the HD Radio multicasts on the Internet stream from that station.
Summary: After several years of daily use my first Sangean died. After comparing the WFT-1 with a few other makes I decided to purchase the same model again. The software has been redesigned and the station readouts much more informative. I could not ask for a better internet receiver.
Summary: This is my second Sangean Wi Fi radio. My original radio, the WFR-20 has been my constant companion for about 5 years now and got me hooked on internet radio listening. My only complaint was that the sound was not all I wished for.
Summary: The Sangean WFT-1 was a real surprise that surpassed my expectations. right out of the box the tuner's sound was rich and full with depth and detail of sound. It did not sound digital at all, but more like analog. That is saying a lot for a Wi-Fi tuner under $250. There is, however, a trade-off, at this time you cannot access services such as Pandora, Rhapsody, etc. I did have the opportunity to compare it to the Denon DNP-720; there was no comparison.
