    Internet radio is the future of radio, and this machine is a great way to enjoy it. The other reviews tell you most of the techie stuff. I'll just say it is really easy to use and has a really good sound. I am a musician and very fussy about sound quality -this is just the bees knees. I use it on the "Jazz" EQ preset -as a jazz bassist I am a bit biased and the sound from this small unit is really suprising and a delight. I have the wifiradio-frontier.com website (on which you register your favourites) open on my PC in the office, and play a favourite station in both the office and on the radio in the kitchen -the ground floor is filled with music! My daughter immediately figured out how to plug her iPod into it and it worked well for her.

    The powerful bass and lack of distortion at high volumes means this will be great for music while entertaining -no more faffing around to put CDs on.

    Apart from the superb sound quality, it's nice to use as it's designed as a traditional radio, with knobs and buttons. I like this -I can't be bothered to fiddle around with touchscreens. It's lovely to have the high-tech workings under the cover too. I still can't quite get my head round being able to access 10,000 radio stations and save favourites on a webpage which the radio accesses. As a newcomer to Internet radio I am delighted by the discovery of genres I had never really known.

    This is a great radio and a bargain for its price. It might not have all the bells and whistles possible, but if you aren't bothered about rewinding regular transmission (though you can rewind podcasts) and want to enjoy all kinds of radio with a great sound, then get his machine.

    I like this radio a lot. I bought it mainly to get BBC "Listen Again" on a radio that can also be carried between bedroom and kitchen etc. Fits the bill perfectly. I've had it for a couple of weeks now and think it's great. It has a good warm sound with good bass and, thankfully, bass and treble equalizer control (with some presets and personal option). It's the best sounding "portable" I've owned. It is a satisfyingly weighty object with good quality controls. Menu navigation, station selection and browsing/searching (for internet stations, podcasts, "listen again"s and the like) is fairly straightforward. The screen is fine as these things go.

    Unlike some internet radios it has an ethernet socket in addition to wifi, which I thought I might need and is worth thinking about. As it happens wifi connects readily from everywhere in my house, even the bedroom from which my laptop's usb wifi adaptor struggles. (I'm still glad of the wired option as a standby but haven't needed it yet.)

    The DAB reception is rock solid - I have a JVC mini hifi which struggles terribly with DAB in a corner of the house where the Stream83i just works. I only need to have the aerial pointing up, but not extended, to get a top reception. FM reception is not so good, but I've always struggled with FM in my house so cannot say whether the Stream83i is better or worse than other current similar models.

    I have Townky media server (DLNA/UPnP) running on a NAS (Western Digital MyBook World Edition white light version) and it picked this up straight away. I was browsing and listening to my personal ripped music collection and archived podcasts with ease.

    I find browsing internet stations quite easy and BBC Listen Again content all seems to be there.

    I converted from a Pure Evoke Flow to a Roberts Stream 83i. Ok, so this radio isn't going to win any style or beauty awards but it's inners are strong and it performs exceptionally well. I've had it running for about 2 months now and during that time it hasn't skipped a beat - this can't be said of many internet radios. Not one hiccup or reboot, I hope this continues!

    The main part, the internet radio is driven by Frontier Silicon, and although their database is not as large as Reciva's it offers a wealth of good stations from every country and genre imaginable, with the option to suggest one, or if you have a valid URL, create your own station. The favourites option is handy, as it allows you to store the station you listen to often for easy access on the radio, instead of trawling threw lists running into their thousands. It is likely you will want to use this as the 83i only has 5 dedicated preset buttons.

    Aside internet radio, you have a very capable DAB/FM radio, (which works for me with the aerial down - pulling in all the stations I should receive with no hassle) and the Media Player function which streams MP3/AAC tracks from my MyBook World Edition NAS with no trouble.

    On the back we have a headphone socket, Line out and Audio In, an RJ45 ethernet socket and the power supply jack. A USB socket is on the back as well as front but the rear one is intended only for use by Roberts, or I imagine to update the firmware where an internet connection is not possible on the radio. The USB on the front is intended to be connected with a MP3 player (excluding an iPod) or memory stick and thus it will play the tracks from this.
    I have had no trouble with the Stream 83i, and Amazon has it here for a very good price so I recommend getting it from here. Unlike the Evoke Flow, I can find no disadvantages besides the looks and can highly recommend the Roberts Stream 83i. Thank you.
