Hama | IR110 Internet radio | WLAN/LAN : internet radio is the best (so many stations)

Acquiring owned a variety of wifi radios about the many years this 1 is the best. I own a roberts 83i which i use in the bed room ,the hama beats it arms down on podcasts mainly because you can f/f or rewind the podcast. The seem quality is incredibly excellent total stereo. In general a incredibly superior obtain.

Substitution for a pure evoke circulation with a useless exhibit, and utilised as a kitchen area radio. Reasonably effortless to set up, particularly the dab automobile-tune and the internet radio, and the functionality is almost everything which is marketed. Fm set-up wasn’t very so intuitive – no auto-tune for fm, it appears to be, and it couldn’t discover that several stations. Not an situation, fm is barely used in any case. It has an internet radio menu segment for the bbc stations, which is good – the dab tuner couldn’t find bbc5+, but it plays flawlessly on the ir. Other internet radio stations are complicated to uncover, just like they have been on internet radios for the very last ten yrs, employing the identical continent/region/style lookup, and many of my favorite stations are lacking. Hopefully the app will assist with that (will try out later). I have not tried using spotify or streaming but, possibly. Only ten presets each for dab, fm and ir, however. Would make the app essential – it better get the job done flawlessly, or the rating will go down to two stars.

Rapid and easy to established up, but necessary to obtain pdf manual on line very first as brief-begin information quite constrained. Even so, uncomplicated to uncover and maintain internet radio stations – located my personalized favourites incredibly speedily, and exceptional audio for these kinds of a little device.

Residing in qc, canada, i acquired two of these from amazon british isles. Rationale is easy: as of nowadays, kinda odd that an internet radio is nonetheless a niche solution in north america. Couple wherever the possibilities, so i went with what appeared to be the finest bang for the buck: grace encore. And what a disapointment it was: the device felt like it was coming from the most inexpensive chinese plant achievable and assembled with dated mid 80’s technological innovation. Fortunately, as common, return was a breeze many thanks to amazon. So i’ve lurked what was offered in europe and, to my surprise, these thing as an internet radio was extra democratized around there. The primary purpose of the product i was interested in, was the alarm function (preferred to wake to non nearby radio stations as they’re all garbage stations in my space). So, all over again, i went in advance with what i then considered the ideal bang for the buck following some research: hama ir110. And what a reduction: a minor box with powerful specs, really nicely developed and exactly what 1 could expect from an internet radio in 2016. Additionally it is assembly my necessities when it arrives to an alarm machine (only point i regret is the absence of a nap function even though).

Purchased this for my kitchen just for the dab radio, but its a large amount much more than just a radio,internet radio is the ideal (so numerous stations), usb slot is useful if you have a memorystick full of tunes, if not plug in your mp3 player in the again aux in socket. Haven’t made use of any of theother settings still, most effective ‘radio’ i at any time acquired five*****.

Hama | IR110 Internet radio | WLAN/LAN, USB connection with charging and replay function, wake-up function, multi-room, free radio app | Black : Addendum, august 2017: suddenly i’ve found i can’t receive bbc stations 3, 4, 5. Apparently the bbc has set a new standard for broadcasting, and the radio, like most others i think, doesn’t support it. I can receive bbc world service and all non-bbc stations, so my original review still stands. Just be aware, this happened to me yesterday, the fault of the bbc not the radio. So unless they do an upgrade, when this fails i will have to have one with fm on it as well.

Super small radio, easy to set up with a wonderful sound. This replaced a intricate and underperforming roberts radio – we won’t be able to get dab or fm – so rely on internet radio. The hama has high operation and performs out of the box.

  1. But – when product arrived and we plugged it in, it didn’t work. We read and re-read the instructions but couldn’t find any reason for it not to work. We were ready to return the product when , on very close inspection, we realised that the plug didn’t have a fuse. The item was a birthday present and it caused upset and stress when it didn’t work.

    Its okay but not quite fit for my purpose. If it was supplied free as it has been to some of the reviewers here i would of give it five stars. I just thought it was a wee bit overpriced for what it does and the fact it lacked bluetooth meant i ended up sending it back for a refund. The interface is ok as is the colour screen but i am sure they have been licensed from philips old range of wac7500 streamium players. That’s not a bad thing as i own one and they are ok but a bit long in the tooth now, i am convinced that is where most of the cost on this unit goes. Don’t get me wrong the build quality is great, sound is great and the dab and the network functions work really well, i just felt it was lacking somewhat when compared to other units from other manufacturers. If this unit was close to or sub £100. 00 i think it would easily get 5 stars every time, but i am not sure a brand like hama can leverage almost £150. Close but no cigar, there are better alternatives but a lot of people will be satisfied with it.

      1. I bought this primarily for the spotify connect feature that lets me stream music from my mobile devices to this over my wi-fi network, and for that purpose it works really well. Set-up was straightforward, and included the option for the device to automatically download updates from the manufacturer which is useful. The device connected to my wireless network without difficulty (entering the wpa key is a ittle fiddly but that’s to be expected). Streaming from an ipad running the spotify client has been fine so far, with the audio clear and disruption-free.
