Radio solution for kitchen/house

Hi Folks,

Im looking for a simple solution to getting radio in my house. We have 7MB broadband and ideally Id like to get some kind of internet radio in the kitchen that I could use.

Has anyone got any recommendations?

I use a Logitech Squeezebox Radio as a bedside radio/alarm/clock ....... with headphones for late night listening.

I am quite happy with it ..... the single speaker in the case is not great but the headphones are in stereo, and that socket can be used for external speakers if required.

apple airport express is a simple/cheap option, connect it to your existing speakers, you can use your iphone remote app to stream your itunes library and radio stations** off itunes also.

Or if you can push the budget a bit get a Sonos wifi bridge and Play3 speaker.

Very good, takes a while to get used to setting up. The one I have is prone to freezing from time to time but just a case of switching on and off. Can stream music from PC too.
A bargain
