You can't stream secure AAC files purchased from the iTunes store, there are no audio inputs or built-in CD player, the menu loads sluggishly with Yahoo Music Engine, and tone adjustment is absent. Also, the SoundBridge Radio lacks an Ethernet port and...

The Roku SoundBridge Radio successfully combines a high-end AM/FM clock radio and a wireless digital audio receiver, but we'd like to see a few more extras at this price.

Roku SoundBridge Radio

 

It's hard to imagine a middle-class American's bedroom that's not equipped with a clock radio.

Roku doesn’t provide server software to run on your host PC, but the SoundBridge Radio is compatible with Windows Media Connect, Rhapsody, and iTunes. It can stream Internet radio and DRM-encrusted PlaysForSure music, but not similarly-encumbered songs...

No support for Apple Lossless or iTunes Music Store formats ; no support for WPA security ; no line-in jack ; various interface quirks ; some features available only from Radio, others only from remote ; no Ethernet jack (wireless only) ; no RDS support

Included with the SoundBridge radio is a wireless remote control, power cable, FM wire antenna, AM antenna, and AM antenna adapter (to be used with AM antennas that connect via two wires rather than the Radio's 1/8" minijack)
