    Default What a difference between Cable (AT&T) Radio and internet Radio!!

    Just signed up for Pandora radio and man....what a night and day difference in not only volume, but clarity as well. Makes this 80 watt amp I'm replacing sound like a beast!! I'm loving it. When the Onkyo TX NR708 gets here tomorrow I will explore more internet stations/programs. Loving it!!

    Didn't know where to post this thread...sorry if this is the wrong place!!

    There is almost an endless amount of internet radio stations available on the Onkyo. I have 808 and have no troubles finding something to listen to. You can even get police scanners and air traffic control towers all around the world.

    One thing to point out is it can be a little buggy at times. If you are no longer able to bring up any stations, you'll need to unplug the Onkyo, wait a minute and plug it back in. Also don't be surprised if some of the more obscure stations do not come through.

    I'm just happy as a pig in poop with this Pandora, Thanks, and the sound is amazing to these damaged ears!!

    If you like internet radio, you should look into a Squeezebox or Sonos, and forgo the cdp. Plenty of threads on either.

    I had a 808 and now a marantz and both offer an online site that you can build a base of favorite stations from.
    well over 10,000 stations around the world.something for everyone indeed.
    Also the squeezebox offers a ton as stated above.

    Thanks Tony, I was looking at that Squeeze box station. I guess my main point in the initial post here is that the quality in sound and power just kills the cable radio I was listening to on my Uverse act! AT&T. It is such a treat!!

    Internet radio through the Squeezebox is awesome.
