Could anyone suggest what exactly it is I'm after?!

I'm looking to buy a digital radio (used to just listen via TV and freeview!), but would like one where I can access internet radio stations (or do they all do this?!).

I'd also like it to be able to connect wirelessly to my laptop to play music files. Does such a product exist, and if so, which ones are good?

Ta! smile

Internet radio is a different thing from DAB digital radio. You can get radios that do both.

The Roberts Stream 63i has Internet Radio, DAB and the ability to connect to a a "UPNP Server" to play files from that. I'm pretty sure you should be able to get something to run a UPNP server on your laptop, but I don't have any experience of doing so.

We just use our phones as internet radios now! (big digital radio fans). I don't think there are any stations on digital radio that aren't also in internet ( but I could be wrong)

By a good speaker and use it with your phone/laptop. THe roberts radio above is £280-350 and a bose sound link ( for instance) just £159 and works on blue tooth or wires
