Grace Digital Innovator III GDI-IR2500


$170.00 Released September, 2004

Product Shot 1 The Pros:4-line LCD is easy to read from a distance. Starts up quickly when turned on, finds stations and starts streaming in adequate time. Doesn't suffer interruptions to the stream.

The Cons:Remote control is difficult to work with due to poorly planned design. Spend quite a bit of time scrolling through menus during the setup. Mids and highs from the built-in speaker are tinny and washed out.
