Ocean Digital WR238CD Internet Radio – Excellent radio – easy to set up and beautiful sound

I acquired this radio so that i can listen generally to french stations and keep my language up – it is really an excellent radio, very good benefit and surprisingly fantastic sound for the money.

Excellent searching, trendy internet radio which does what it suggests. All the stored stations continue to be in memory soon after unplugging, and can be established to normally get started participating in your favourite station when run on. Appears to enjoy nicely even when in one more room to the wi-fi resource. But the most effective element is the good seem, from such a smaller box.

I bought this to substitute a dab radio and i have to say that the seem high quality is exceptional as is the alternative of radio stations. The only downside is its skill to hook up to the router. I tried using to set up upstairs and although it could see the network experienced a robust sign (allegedly) it would not connect. Moved it downstairs perception of the router and it set up instantly. Other than that there is really practically nothing incorrect with the small box with the amazing sound.Here are the specifications for the Ocean Digital WR238CD Internet Radio:

  • Features: 8 Equalization Settings. 2.4-inch TFT(thin film transistor) color display, dual alarm and sleep timer ,weather and time display

This is a class piece of package. It is little so will suit on a tiny table, ledge, or anywhere you want it. All i need to aim on now is how to make sure i can obtain radio stradbroke to it. The seem excellent, also, for these types of a tiny piece of package, is outstanding. I adore it, the spouse and children enjoys it. Though we had been incredibly fond of our 10-year-previous reciva, this is surely a superior radio.

Arrived swiftly and was quick to established up. Great high-quality seem and does what it suggests on the box. Only had it a 7 days but have not discovered a fault with it.

Reviews from purchasers :

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

Immediately after setting it up to my wifi i uncovered a ton of stations i pay attention to on my other internet radio really don’t work (just timeout or say ‘error’), or are not shown on the radio’s database, also the radio has locked up a pair of situations within just the initial hrs use which does not seem promising, on the moreover facet the radio has genuinely very good seem for one thing so small.

The sound is pretty very good for the measurement of the speaker. It does what it suggests on the tin. However the consumer interface is a bit quirky and from time to time it will never reconnect to my wi-fi, but that is simply corrected by a electricity off reset (unplug and plug the electric power cable). four-stars since it is a bit high priced for what it is.

To start with class piece of machines, compact, elegant, economical, does just as described, straightforward to set up and handles a multitude of around the world stations as well as nearby. Reception is superb and seem is good without the need of the addition of excess speakers, although i have included. Style is superior and sits properly in any surroundings.

Rather a neat small piece of kit, at the time you battle your way via the log-on recommendations, and re-set the battery in the remote so it is effective effectively. Observe that at the stop of getting into the wifi password you must not push the ‘right’ button to enter the ultimate 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 sign up immediately after the third endeavor, you learn these points. Disgrace the directions did not make this very clear. Nevertheless have not got the ‘switch again on to the very last station listened’ performing, inspite of switching that setting that on various instances, but we will get there. Just ponder why all internet radios have to be so elaborate to set-up and tune in, when it can be so quick on an iphone.

It is a bit gradual firing up in some cases, which is possibly much more to do with my connection. It can be very simple to use, but a bit flimsy, so will not drop it. I can just push just one button, lay again and listen to bbc radio 4 information.

Excellent radio – effortless to established up and wonderful audio. The radio station i wished the radio for, bbc radio cymru, was not offered so i contacted ocean digital buyer service and the future day they experienced set up the radio station on their web site and it was available for us to pay attention to. Wonderful radio and superb shopper support.

Radio more compact than anticipated, but as they say fantastic things come in smaller deals. Excellent audio excellent, and owning better priced internet radio from other company, have discovered this a fantastic very little expenditure. Contacted buyer service and they were being ready to insert many radio stations that i was unable to trace. And they have finished their greatest to assist, even above the vacations.

Pretty fantastic price in particular as it playes the new hl process now made use of by bbc radio. No ‘roll back’ facility while and headphone volume is feeble in comparison to other related models.

I bought this as a christmas gift for a shut good friends dad and mom who stay overseas. They’re in their 60s still ended up in a position to get this set up and functioning with out help. They appreciate it and have stated that it has livened up their kitchen.

A smaller, light-weight radio that delivers what it states on the box. Living overseas i depend on the internet for my media obtain and this radio provides superb top quality from a multitude of worldwide radio stations. Meets my particular prerequisites extremely nicely.

Exceptional value and works nicely. Easy set up as soon as you get the hold of it.

I really don’t have an understanding of why these bins are so high-priced but this is at the bottom conclusion (about £60) and looks alright. As detailed, hundreds of stations which will make choice considerably tiresome. Display will dim entirely but challenging.

Smooth contours and surfaces, great dimensions display where key capabilities/identifiers can be seen from a couple toes away. Effortless to set up, with great use of the out there front buttons/selectors (a lot more on the remote), while the menu technique can be a little bit troublesome however, the moment there, you should not will need to stop by some areas ever all over again. Most popular features can be arrived at with the remote. The hold off going concerning internet stations is to be anticipated, but the excellent of the seem is quite superior. The speaker is a truthful dimensions and does a good occupation with the bass – in simple fact, most of the equaliser configurations are a lot more bassy than you would commonly count on. The five pre-sets on the front panel are beneficial for your prime favourites. The dab reception is quite superior, and for me necessitates incredibly very little aerial extension (naturally is dependent on regional sign energy/top quality), and i’ve seasoned small if any interruption on the internet stations due to buffering (despite the fact that i do have very quickly optical broadband). The bluetooth and aux solutions give it extra capability. Well well worth the extra to have the internet and dab variation (which isn’t that apparent from the description (it is really the ‘cd’ suffix that clinches it as also obtaining dab).

Purchased friday arrived sunday, what’s greater than that. The radio was set up in a couple of minutes and soon i was listening to stations devoted to the beatles, seaside boys and other sixties new music. I have it at the facet of the bed and to date the television in the room hasn’t been switched on, i just pay attention to the radio. Effortless to established up and easy to use but wonderful in operation.

Is ability on 24h for each working day for very last three months and still work.

    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).

    1. Ok but dab reception is virtually impossible to get. I would not recommend this product on that basis along with the sound quality being poor too.

    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.

    Great little internet radio and alarm clock. Very easy to connect to wifi and so easy to search for stations. Love the fact that you get to see the radio station logo as well as the details of the track being played. Before purchase i had some concern about the use as an alarm clock, as i thought the numbers would be tiny- but most surprisingly the numbers fit the screen thus making this a fantastic little clock. It also charges my phone overnight. It makes my previous internet radio look like a relic from bygone times. So i just might have to purchase one for each bedroom now.

    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. First class piece of equipment, compact, stylish, efficient, does exactly as described, easy to set up and covers a multitude of worldwide stations as well as local. Reception is excellent and sound is good without the addition of extra speakers, although i have added. Design is good and sits well in any surroundings.

    The internet radio is exactly the one i wanted to replace my original internet radio. The updated version is as expected living up to its reputation. I would not hesitate to recommend.

      1. Easy to use once configured. Doesn’t like sitting next to the wifi router, it will not connect, signal must be too strong. Its sounds like the little plastic box it is, but sounds very acceptable into my 8 year old harmon/ kardon sticks.

    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.

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.

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.

    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.
