Ocean Digital WiFi Internet Radio WR220 – Good value. suitable for purpose

Superb audio reception and sufficient favourite presets. Casing, even so, is somewhat ‘tinny’ and whilst some individuals may possibly take pleasure in the extremely light body weight, i individually choose anything heavier. It does not have as several loaded stations as my roberts stream 107 transportable and i was dissatisfied that my personal area bbc channel and its neighbouring a person were not set up.

Tough to read through the display screen in certain situations and as the buttons are all the similar complete as the case, they can only be discovered by feel specifically in the dark – employed as an alarm clock. Often the alarm reverts to ‘melody’ alternatively of ‘radio’ without having warning.

Like but the quantity is a bit very low also has a habit of stopping to enjoy achievable network connectionbut pretty good radio station reception no crackling audio all in all superior merchandise could be enhanced with amplifier link.Here are the specifications for the Ocean Digital WiFi Internet Radio WR220:

  • Excellent Customer Support
  • Wifi radio player without being tied to your laptop
  • Stylish, very accomplished and good value

Pretty very good worth particularly as it playes the new hl program now employed by bbc radio. No ‘roll back’ facility however and headphone quantity is feeble in contrast to other very similar units.

Have to say that i’m so quite content with my new internet radio. I assume this design is excellent for the rate, and definitely i’d like to give four and three quarters stars, but can only give 4. The rationale for a quarter star deduction is since there is (as much as i am worried), a small snag which is the cumbersome way you have to enter to manually research for radio stations. But i’m positive in time i am going to get superior at imputtingas for everything else, i’m additional than delighted and would not hesitate to advocate this to any one else.

A extremely good and effortless to use internet radio perfect for what i wished also very superior benefit for the value and uncomplicated to use i have it on each working day.

Little bit fiddly to set up at first but you shortly get the hold of it. Uncovered that one particular of my favourite stations was not integrated on the station list e-mailed karen at ocean digital and hey presto, overnight it appeared.

Acquired this for my mom as she is unable to get a appropriate vhf/dab radio signal. Once set up, this radio will work very well. When you press the ‘on’ button, the sound is not speedy as the radio will take time to intialise and so on. But as soon as it commences it is a good apparent seem and the minor delay is not anything that concerns us.

This is a class piece of package. It truly is modest so will suit on a small table, ledge, or anywhere you want it. All i need to concentration on now is how to make confident i can get radio stradbroke to it. The seem quality, too, for this kind of a little piece of kit, is excellent. I really like it, the relatives loves it. Even though we were being pretty fond of our ten-year-previous reciva, this is definitely a much better radio.

Is electrical power on 24h for every day for final 3 months and nonetheless function.

A good dab and internet radio. Pretty strong develop for the cost. Screen is alright but there are improved radio displays out there. Audio is very good for the dimensions of speaker, nevertheless i connect this to powered speakers so not seriously employing the radio’s speaker that significantly. General this a terrific ‘second’ radio for kitchen or bed room that performs nicely. Just doesn’t very have the major top quality to be a living place radio.

Top quality item five*, only thing the screen could be more substantial.

Soon after placing it up to my wifi i discovered a large amount of stations i listen to on my other internet radio do not perform (just timeout or say ‘error’), or are not stated on the radio’s database, also the radio has locked up a pair of times in just the initial hrs use which does not audio promising, on the moreover aspect the radio has truly fantastic seem for a thing so tiny.

Effortless to use after configured. Would not like sitting down upcoming to the wifi router, it will not hook up, sign ought to be much too powerful. Its seems like the little plastic box it is, but seems quite satisfactory into my 8 year outdated harmon/ kardon sticks.

Moved home and the dab radio i employed was not equipped to give me with world rock so made a decision to test the wifi route, would like i experienced carried out this decades ago. It is a smaller device so matches in a shelf out of the way,remote control is a godsend, good sound for my workplace. Simple to set up the moment you get the job done out the keyboard key purchase eg: 1aabbcc then press appropriate to shift to the future character. The moment linked to your internet it is so basic to discover your radio station and you can get 1,000s to select from. By the seems of it, if the station is broadcast on the net you can get it. Startup in the morning is a thirty 2nd procedure, go in the office, swap it on and ahead of you know it you have world rock blasting out (as i said other stations are offered but with earth rock you don’t will need them)would i acquire yet another or recommend it to a family members member certainly.

I was pretty content with the ocean digital internet radio wr220, the stations on it are boundless. For this sort of a compact radio the replica is very excellent, not the tinny seem you get on radios ordinarily of this sizing. I am enjoying it as a result of an exterior audio procedure and it is phenomenal.

I will not comprehend why these bins are so costly but this is at the base conclusion (all over £60) and seems ok. As outlined, hundreds of stations which would make selection rather laborous. Monitor will dim wholly but sophisticated.

It is a little bit gradual firing up at times, which is in all probability additional to do with my link. It is really pretty uncomplicated to use, but a little bit flimsy, so don’t drop it. I can just force a single button, lay again and hear to bbc radio 4 information.

    A good dab and internet radio. Fairly solid build for the price. Display is ok but there are better radio displays out there. Sound is good for the size of speaker, though i connect this to powered speakers so not really using the radio’s speaker that much. Overall this a great ‘second’ radio for kitchen or bedroom that works well. Just doesn’t quite have the top quality to be a living room radio.

    Have to say that i’m so very happy with my new internet radio. I think this model is great for the price, and really i’d like to give 4 and 3 quarters stars, but can only give 4. The reason for a quarter star deduction is because there is (as far as i’m concerned), a small snag which is the cumbersome way you have to input to manually search for radio stations. But i’m sure in time i’ll get better at imputtingas for everything else, i’m more than happy and would not hesitate to recommend this to anyone else.

    1. Very good value especially as it playes the new hl system now used by bbc radio. No “roll back” facility though and headphone volume is feeble compared to other similar units.

  5. Disappointing for many reasons:1. The dab receiver is weak and initially couldn’t find any bbc channels. When it did find them the reception was extremely poor. I placed this radio in exactly the same spot as our previous roberts dab which had always provided good reception so this gripe is based on a direct comparison. The information display for dab is very basic. I would have thought that with a colour lcd screen, they could have used fonts able to display the information clearly. But no, the text is displayed as if the screen is an old fashioned terminal from the 80’s with words being split between lines. It looks like the designers of the display don’t really know what kind of information is being broadcast. If you use menu functions to change settings (even to simply set the time) while the radio is playing, the radio turns off when you complete the setting4. When setting the box up it thought it was in the far east somewhere and displayed a time 9 hours ahead of bst. I had to manually set the time. Setting the wifi password is extremely clunky. You have to use the keys on the remote in old fashioned mobile texting mode. Except you have to press right arrow to actually select a character – 20 years ago mobile phones would accept a character automatically if you paused while cycling through the options on each button – but this baby seems to have 25 year old input logic. When you finish entering the password the box displays a message saying “disconnected from network” – making you think you entered the password incorrectly. But if you select the network ssid again it connects.

    Smooth contours and surfaces, nice size screen where major functions/identifiers can be seen from a few feet away. Easy to set up, with good use of the available front buttons/selectors (more on the remote), although the menu system can be a bit annoying; however, once there, you shouldn’t need to visit some areas ever again. Most common functions can be reached with the remote. The delay moving between internet stations is to be expected, but the quality of the sound is very good. The speaker is a fair size and does a good job with the bass – in fact, most of the equaliser settings are more bassy than you would normally expect. The five pre-sets on the front panel are useful for your top favourites. The dab reception is very good, and for me requires very little aerial extension (obviously depends on local signal strength/quality), and i’ve experienced little if any interruption on the internet stations due to buffering (although i do have extremely fast optical broadband). The bluetooth and aux options give it added capability. Well worth the extra to have the internet and dab version (which isn’t that obvious from the description (it’s the “cd” suffix that clinches it as also having dab).

    I bought this last week, had terrible trouble with it. Got an error ‘skytune unavailable, retry later’, tried it on the office wifi and my personal hotspot, neither worked. We managed to get one local station on it but then it stopped again and we couldn’t tune anything else in leaving us stuck with one crap station. I was over and back with support for a week and they helped as best they could but they could not resolve the issue. So i bought a roberts stream 107, twice the price but it worked within minutes and was dead easy to set up.

    It is a bit slow firing up sometimes, which is probably more to do with my connection. It’s pretty simple to use, but a bit flimsy, so don’t drop it. I can just push one button, lay back and listen to bbc radio 4 news.

    Performance is good – including sound quality, but – the mmi (both front panel and remote) is poor. In particular, when the alarm is cancelled the radio does not revert to playing the last station; it then takes two or three non-intuitive button presses to get back to your favourite wake-up station. Not what you want when half awake.

      1. Quite a neat little piece of kit, once you fight your way through the log-on instructions, and re-set the battery in the remote so it works properly. Note that at the end of entering the wifi password you should not press the ‘right’ button to enter the final letter, but go straight to the central button which enters the entire password; when you have a french router with an un-alterable 26 character password which fails to register after the third attempt, you learn these things. Shame the instructions didn’t make this clear. Still haven’t got the ‘switch back on to the last station listened’ working, despite switching that setting that on several times, but we’ll get there. Just wonder why all internet radios have to be so complex to set-up and tune in, when it’s so easy on an iphone.

    1. Its buffering technology is advanced, even at lower wifi signal levels it gives a good smooth reception. I just got back from my croatian holiday, where every evening i could listen to my hungarian radio show. Updateafter a few weeks of perfect operation my wr220 stopped it operation. I checked the power supply, but it turned out to be ok. Then i sent an e-mail to ocean digital customer service team detailing my problems. They will sent me a replacement soon. Actually the replacement arrived in a very short time and all works fine nownot only the wr220 is a perfect product, but the support from the ocean digital customer service team is fantastic.

    1. I don’t understand why these boxes are so expensive but this is at the bottom end (around £60) and seems ok. As listed, thousands of stations which makes selection somewhat tedious. Screen will dim completely but complicated.

    1. The sound is surprisingly good and rich for such a small radio. Setup is simple as long as you remember to press the left or right buttons when selecting characters on the wifi or search menus. Other reviews have commented that the radio feels plasticky or cheap but i’m not finding that the reality. True, the unit is light but the jogwheel and buttons have a solid, non wobbly feel to them. For the money, the wr220 is a bargain and a no brainer for a bedroom or kitchen and with a choice of 17000 radio stations then i’d definitely give it 5 stars.

    The sound is pretty good for the size of the speaker. It does what it says on the tin. However the user interface is a bit quirky and occasionally it won’t reconnect to my wireless, but that is easily corrected by a power off reset (unplug and plug the power cable). 4-stars because it’s a bit expensive for what it is.

    Ordered friday arrived sunday, what’s better than that. The radio was set up in a couple of minutes and soon i was listening to stations devoted to the beatles, beach boys and other sixties music. I have it at the side of the bed and to date the tv in the room hasn’t been switched on, i just listen to the radio. Easy to set up and simple to use but magnificent in operation.

    I bought this as a christmas gift for a close friends parents who live abroad. They’re in their 60s yet were able to get this setup and working without assistance. They love it and have said that it has livened up their kitchen.

    1. Bit fiddly to set up at first but you soon get the hang of it. Discovered that one of my favourite stations was not included on the station list; e-mailed karen at ocean digital and hey presto, overnight it appeared.

    Good sound on its own but attached it to a set of old computer powered speakers excellent.

      1. Radio smaller than expected, but as they say good things come in small packages. Good sound quality, and having higher priced internet radio from other manufacturer, have found this a good little investment. Contacted customer service and they were able to add several radio stations that i was unable to trace. And they have done their best to assist, even over the holidays.
