San Diego-based Grace Digital has announced its latest model of wireless Internet radios, the Primo Wi-Fi Media Streamer. The Primo gives consumers the ability to connect to over 50,000 radio stations, podcasts and other on-demand programs though the unit, free of charge. Users can also play custom Pandora playlists, or connect to other music services such as SiriusXM, Live365 and Rhapsody.

The Primo allows users to have a wealth of music at their fingertips through Wi-Fi. The device utilizes a connection through 802.11 b/g/n, leaving the unit to be placed in a convenient spot rather than be limited to available router ports and wall jacks. Support for secure networks is included, such as allowing connections through WEP, WPA 1 and 2 and hidden SSIDs.

Those that wish to connect the Primo to an existing stereo can do so with the unit's left and right RCA line out. The device also allows a connection to headphones with a 3.5mm audio port. The ports are important, because the Primo Wi-Fi Media Streamer doesn't hold its own speakers inside the unit. It's a unit that was made to supplement existing home stereos.

"We wanted to introduce a Wi-Fi solution that seamlessly paired with our customers' existing stereo, offering a convenient way to integrate Internet radio options with their current systems," said CEO Greg Fadul. "We also wanted to offer a sleek, modern look to complement our customers' homes. Primo looks good, offers a new way to listen to music, and is easy to use. It's an essential for frequent party hosts or regular home retreaters."

If digital radio or songs on the network weren't enough, the Primo has a USB port to allow other audio to be played through USB storage on the device. If wireless isn't available in the area the unit is being used, Grace Digital also sells a USB to Ethernet adapter to utilize the same port.

Primo can be controlled through its 3.5-inch touchscreen, or by a remote app for iOS and Android. The color LCD display gives users an easy way to search and navigate their listening selections. Up to 110 stations can be stored for quick access on the streamer, with eight "one-press" preset buttons and 100 stations in a folder. The free remote control app includes the ability to control volume, radio stations, track navigation and power.

The Primo Wi-Fi Media Streamer is available now at Amazon for $150.
