capsule review

Roku SoundBridge Radio

Roku's SoundBridge Radio is a unique product that combines the functionality of a wireless music player, the convenience of an AM/FM table radio, and the practicality of a well-designed alarm clock into a compact -- and good sounding -- package. It works as advertised and, even better, the more you use it, the more you want to use it. Although it isn't cheap, when you consider that a good table radio is going to cost you $200 to $400 and most wireless audio players are $150 to $300, the SoundBridge Radio's $400 price tag isn't unreasonable. My biggest complaints about the Radio are related to its interface. If Roku can address some of these interface issues via a future software update, the SoundBridge Radio would be a product I could recommend for anyone.
