Media Player With Internet Radio?

Hi guys, I was wondering if one (or more) of you might be able to suggest something for me.

I am looking for a Media Player (streamer) that also acts as a stand alone internet radio? I currently have an AC Ryan Playon!Mini and it's great! But I want to upgrade and I am thinking about getting an internet radio (either wired or wireless, no preference) so was wondering if a box exists where I can combine the 2?

I realise that most media players allow me to play radio through my TV but I was looking for one that will allow me to do it as a stand alone box (aux'd through my hifi)?

I have searched google but can't really find what I need.

Thank you all very much in advance.

Run a server to provide the radio to your media box ?

This one servers up all the stations Tunein serves up
Asset UPnP DLNA

Thanks for the reply NX3 :)

That's a distinct possibility, thank you. It may come to that. The only thing is, my wife isn't all that techie and would get a bit confused with it. So that's why I was wondering if anyone knew of a Media Player with Internet Radio? But it looks like I might be out of luck on that one.

Thanks again

Matt

Any of the Dune players have a large range of internet radio stations they can output - but you would need the TV on to navigate to them.
Something like the Dune TV101 at £100 should be a good starting point.

Thanks Mark, it was the TV navigation I was trying to steer clear of. But as there doesn't seem to be a box that will act as a stand-alone internet radio, it seems I have a decision to make....... :)

Avoid tv navigation is the trick / more expensive part. Sonas or Logitech sell boxes with screens in for the internet radio part but aren't media players.

iPad ? Android tablet ? maybe

I hold all my media on a Qnap Nas,and use my iPad and a Bluetooth receiver attached to my amp. Serves all the media I could wish for and there's plenty of easy to use Internet radio too! Worth a thought I reckon, what with Christmas coming up!

Good luck.
