No hissy fits with the Cobra CIR1000 internet radio

The Cobra CIR1000, which uses the Frontier Silicon internet radio portal to grab its links to streaming radio stations, is now available in the UK. Heralding from across the pond, the CIR1000 gives streaming access to more than 10,000 radio stations from around the world.

The CIR1000 includes an FM tuner, giving access to UK stations such as BBC Radio 1, Classic FM and Radio 4 - useful when you want to catch up with news and the latest tunes closer to home. If your FM reception tends to be rather hissy, switch to internet radio and stream your favourite stations from the UK and around the world, instead.

There are alarm clock settings (including a sleep timer) and a headphone socket. A line-in socket allowing you to connect your mp3 player or iPod by cable.

The CIR1000 offer wireless or ethernet-wired connection (a wired connection is often the preferred option if you place the radio near to your broadband router). The Cobra is mains powered only.

The Cobra CIR1000 also streams music from your PC or MAC using uPnP (Universal Plug and Play) over a home network. The CIR1000 is available at an asking price of around £80, making it one of the cheapest internet-connected radios available.
