|Bottom line|| |
The Acoustic Research ARIR200 offers lots of unique features with an alarm clock-friendly design, but it has a few quirks and shortcomings that keep us from wholeheartedly recommending it.
The Logitech UE Smart Radio's great sound, built-in battery, and solid list of streaming-audio services make it an attractive compact music system, but you may be better off with a Bluetooth speaker.
The VTech IS9181 Wi-Fi radio has a slick design with a color LCD display, and is currently the best portable option on the market, but it lacks some of the additional streaming audio options found on competitors.
The Aluratek Internet Radio Alarm Clock with Built-in WiFi won't wow you with its sound, but it won us over with its versatile feature set and solid streaming performance.
