Quality Internet Radio Tuner
For years now I've been using a Rotel RT-1084 tuner, listening to Philadelphia FM HD channels. Now I've moved about an hour away to a more rural area and I'm having difficulty getting much of anything I enjoy.
On paper, an internet tuner looks like the perfect solution. But I see the quality depends on the particular stream and the quality of the tuner. I've been reading up on these below. I want to use the tuner analog out, as my Luxman amp has no digital inputs.
Ocean WR10, $150. Price is right, but get the impression the DAC doesn't do justice to a good quality stream.
Sangean WFT-1. $300. Twice the price, but not really sure if it's a step up from the Ocean.
Denon DN-350UI, $300. More of an audiophile brand. Wondering if it sounds better than the others.
And then there is the Grace GDI-IRDT200, which gets some great reviews, but has been discontinued. Used ones around but would be more expensive the the others.
Any suggestions on an internet tuner that Would be curious if others have found a good sounding tuner. Probably a lot of people use servers instead, but not ready to go that route right now.
