Sanyo Internet Radio R227 makes a splash


Sanyo was the pioneer when it came to releasing one of the first transistor radios in the world over five decades ago, and you know that the company is forward looking if it is still around today. This time, Sanyo has updated their transistor radio with a modern twist – it comes with Internet radio capability, packaged in a design that looks contemporary and yet features the comfortable and familiar functionality of a clock radio. It also boasts the sound quality of a much more expensive audio system (according to Sanyo anyways – audiophiles might beg to differ in this aspect), as the Sanyo Internet Radio R227 is able to play thousands of crystal-clear Internet radio stations and podcasts for free – something we’d all love these days considering the current economic downturn. The Sanyo Internet Radio R227 relies on either Wi-Fi or an Ethernet Internet connection to get you started.
