The best part about this Grace Digital creation is that users can access and listen to content from 30,000 Internet radio stations and other services like Pandora, Sirius, and NPR on-demand. Listeners can do this wirelessly via 802.11g Wi-Fi or old-fashioned Ethernet, and they can also stream content from a Mac or PC over the network to be played over this system.
However, you need to plug it into a regular home stereo for actual playback. Yet, probably the biggest problem with the Tuner Wi-Fi Player is the price tag: $219.99. That's a lot to ask for a system that requires another system to actually operate. If you want one of these, hopefully you have an already existing compatible stereo so you don't have to throw down more cash for a companion to the Tuner Wi-Fi Player.
