Looking for a Wired Internet Radio
I am looking to purchase an Internet radio. Not bothered about built in speakers as I am planning on connecting it to my hifi.
I am looking for one which can:
- Connect the Internet using either Wired or Wireless LAN (Have not yet invested in WLAN but may in the future)
- Has the option of playing my music file stored on my pc
- Has a USB port for audio from a pen drive.
So far I have come across the Pioneer PDX-Z9 but its only got Wired LAN for Internet radio.
PDX-Z9 - Combine with... - Stereo Receiver with SACD Player, Ready for iPod, USB host, Internet Radio and DLNA-certified
Any ideas are appreciated

That has wired/wireless support, uPNP/Network streaming support, but doesn't have USB support.

I preferred to compromise flexibility for security. Never been a fan of wireless. I have enough trouble with it at work. Connections dropping etc

whats your budget?
Ive got a couple of the netgear eva8000 media players, and they come with a truckload of stations preprogrammed and its a doddle to add more.. Its more than just an internet radio player though so might be overkill for what you want / need.

Ive got a Logitech squeezebox boom which im very happy with. For models without speakers try the squeezbox duet or if you are a real audiophile with spare money try the squeezebox Transporter. I dont think they do any devices with USB ports for playing from pen drives but they can stream audio from your pc so why not plug the pen drive in there add add the songs to your library.

You might find it cheaper to buy a regular wifi internet radio and a wireless router!

The squeezebox software is opensource and you can get plugins for it (like RSS scrolling displays and the like).
It reconises most media formats (aac, flac, mp3 etc..) and apparently works with itunes.. (although I haven't tried that)

I have tested many of these units, i have found the best one by far is the MOS150 it was being discounted from Argos cost is around £89 inc vat, it has lan socket wifi and presets for many channels.
