The All-In-One Solution, the Bravado-X

Grace Digital Audio has always been pioneer, and consumer favorite when it comes to Internet Radio. This is not a new area for them, nor do they appear to be amateurs. If Grace Digital Audio made it, then rest assured that people will buy it! The Grace Digital Audio Bravado-X is another huge step for relatively young company. The GDI-IRD4500M (Bravado-X) is a compact tabletop internet radio receiver with built-in Wi-Fi (WiFi) for wireless audio streaming. The GDI-IRD4500M supports plenty of free internet radio music services including the most notorious stations like Pandora, SiriusXM (Sirius XM), Rhapsody, iHeart Radio, Weatherbug, Live365 VIP, NPR, BBC, MP3tunes, and NOAA with National Weather Service Emergency Weather Warnings, and thousands of more. Proud owners have the luxury of always having CLEAR stations to listen to, with a few hundred as back-up, just in case they don't like their first hundred! With all of these stations, Grace Digital knew it was important to give their consumers some quality speakers to enjoy their listening with. Rather than "roll the dice" and hope that consumers would make the right decision, Grace Digital did the smart thing and just built the quality speakers right in the Bravado-X. This ensures listeners will have the optimal user experience, and that people would have adequate speakers to go along with their prized GDI-IRD4500M. Two 3" Full-Range speakers deliver incredible room filling sound with added bass levels, credited to the rear bass port for additional air movement. A 16 Watt Class D amplifier was manufactured to provide plenty of power for the built-in speakers, with lots to spare. Did we say spare? We meant share. The GDI-IRD4500M has enough "juice" to power a pair of external speakers as well, with a two-channel speaker terminal on the back. The brilliant 2.7 Inch 4-line LCD screen offers users numerous ways to customize and tweak the settings to fit their personal desires using the front buttons, or the included remote control. It just wouldn't be the Grace Digital way if they didn't throw in a bunch of extra features like "Three layers of Icing on the Cake". So in true Grace fashion, they designed a Remote Control iPhone App, and an Android based App that will transform your Apple iPod, iPhone, iPad, Samsung Galaxy S3/S4, Note 1/2, or any other Android based smartphone/tablet into your very own Grace Digital Audio remote control. Control your Bravado-X, or many other Grace Digital Audio Internet Radios right from your smartphone or tablet. Do not be mistaken. This is not just A internet radio, it is THE internet radio, the GDI-IRD4500M Bravado-X!

This is the 2nd wifi radio I own, the other is a Cobra. This Grace has a remote which is it's only advantage over the Cobra. Disadvantages, it doesn't fine tune search, Grace only gives you USA stations where Cobra breaks it down to states, no HD search on Grace, Cobra yes, so I like my Cobra better, the Grace is just ok
