Got wifi? Love music? Fed up with terrestrial radio and disappointed with digital?

The KitSound Surfer is the future. This shiny black box of tricks is packed with more features than an over-budget TV show. Plug it in, follow the very clear and simple instructions to hook up to your wireless router, and you will be bequeathed nearly fifteen thousand radio stations. You would be hard pressed to find a radio station not broadcasting on the internet these days so take your pick. Rock, pop, trance, D&B, breaks, jazz, classical, blues, bluegrass, gypsy polka, ska, funk, reggae, metal, grime, dubstep, thrash, punk, skiffle and all the rest. Some radio stations are only broadcasting on the internet. If you have a favorite artist you will probably even be able to find a station playing nothing but that artist. The search function allows you to search by genre, country or by specific word. You can locate and play podcasts from all over the world directly from the Surfer.

The KitSound Surfer has a built-in alarm clock so why not wake up with some old school hip hop fresh out of Philly, or how about some gabba to ease you into the day? Kick back in the evening with some blues straight out of New Orleans or get your dance on with some salsa from Mexico or Cuba. Check out the feel-good vibes on the stations in the West Indies or get moshing with some mental metal from Munich.

You do not even need to have your PC switched on, the Surfer stands alone like a renegade squid with 15,000 tiny tentacles sprawled over the internet sucking up radio stations and spewing them into your ears.

When you pick the radio up it feels heavy - that's because the speaker is decent and with airflow from the back to give a good base, the sounds are well ballanced which makes listening a real pleasure.
I like the cool blue display and the built-in mains adapter so only a regular mains lead with no bulky brick exposed.

 Brilliant but not perfect

I'm always wary of reviews that start "I got this yesterday..." as they tend be clouded by the excitement of getting a new toy, but... I got this last night and it really is impressive. It is a nice weight, not too heavy to move around the house but doesn't slide back when you press the buttons which is important as they are on the front. Using is easy as it is controlled in the main by the big dial on the front. It is driven by menus and sub menus that are pretty clear and intuitive. Sound is good too being a lot better than you should expect from the single speaker on the front. Speech is clear and music is well defined. The finish is good (matches our kitchen perfectly) and the screen is clear. The website is easy to use to set up favourites and the number of stations you can pick from is mind-blowing! There are a couple of downsides though. The box it came in looked like it had been kicked around the warehouse with all 4 corners crushed. It doesnt appear to have affected the radio as it all works and is in perfect condition but made me wary when opening. The other downside is the switchgear; the buttons on the front are tiny. If you don't have fingernails, you might have problems! There are 2 main knobs, the small one for volume and large one for menus and selecting options. The large one is a bit plasticky compared to the nice piano black finish and feels a little flimsy. All in all a great buy. With radios like this, DAB is already dead!!

 Great unit
