3.0 out of 5 stars
consider this before buying, 13 Nov. 2010
The main reason why I bought this radio is because of the internetradio option. That is the main sellingpoint of this model compared to the dozens of other Sony radios. But, but, the only way to connect to internetradio stations is via a so called vTuner. This vTuner connects with a Sony portal. Sony filters and selects the internetradio stations AND this musicservices is for 20% of the time I have this radio OFFLINE! You can't enter an internetaddress to listen to a podcast. Also the website where you have to manage the presets and other settings hasn't been launched, except for the US. Check for yourself if this service is now available at [...]. I didn't know this before I bought the radio that internetradio is 100% dependend of the Sony portal!
Neither is the radio compatible with iTunes or Mac.
DAB reception in NL is bad but I knew that before I bought the item.
Ipod/Iphone handling is fine. Internetradio is possible via an internetradio app at the iPhone (like with every other iPhone speakerdock...)
Nice speakers and sound. No equilizer presets.
