    Default Squeezebox Internet Radio

    OK....just got my Touch today. Screw the CD ripping, the internet radio is worth the cost. A little confused though.....so how do I add this station's playlist/url to my squeezebox?

    Never mind....now that I've got this figured out, I like the internet radio for the HT system because I can listen while I'm on the treadmill in the adjoining room and they've got exactly what I was looking for (Radio Paradise, Technicolor Web of Sound, Psychedelic Jukebox, etc). I'm thinking of moving the Touch into the 2-channel system and getting something else for mainly internet radio in the HT room. Will the Duet be adequate since the internet radio is just mp3 quality anyway. Just asking because I've heard the Touch digital interface might be better. Would it matter for 128kbps? I'm thinking not.

    Can't answer your technical questions on internet radio, however I agree that the internet radio capabilities of the Touch are worth the price of admission. I bought a SqueezeBox Boom that I use for listening to internet radio while I'm working at home, it's portable and has decent sound. You might consider that also.

    I have a duet, and it is really great - I listen to podcasts as well, audiobooks, Napster, along with my music library.

    Will probably get a Boom for the kitchen..
