Roku recently released the SoundBridge Radio which they claim can receive over 10,000 stations with no monthly fees. It’s not powered by XM. It’s not powered by Sirius. It’s powered by the Internet.

The SoundBridge Radio connects to your internet connection at home via WiFi and has access to over 10,000 free internet radio stations. In addition the SoundBridge Radio feature all the standard features of a regular table-top radio: stereo speakers, subwoofer, AM/FM radio and alarm clock.

Roku didn’t just end it there. They’ve created a multimedia jukebox out of this radio. You can play your digital music (WMA, AAC, MP3, WAV, and AIFF formats) over your WiFi network or from the included SD/MMC reader. The device is even compatible with iTunes.

How much? $399. How cool? Fairly.

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
