A Chinese manufacturer named zeng, I bet you've never heard of it. The radio part is made by Tecsun, who maufacture 80% radio receiver of the world.

Only 50 of this type will be made, very rare.

Internet radio will never give you the feeling of real radio. You need a yagi FM antenna if you are far away from big city. My 5 cell Yagi can catch FM signals 600 km away.

Did you notice the cover at the top? it's the place for their tube CD player. I didn't purchase the CD player, too expensive.

I have built a few Yagis in the past, although they were tuned for WiFi, not FM radio.

You might try some experiments with an offset parabolic dish with a waveguide.

I'm not sure if it's suitable size for FM, but I was able to connect to a home router 7.5 KM line of sight from my front yard using Backtrack.

I was impressed to say the least.

I then built a bi-quad antenna onto a WRT-54g router running DD-WRT and made myself a pretty nifty WiFi repeater dish.

Sorry , but I don't like it .
There's no reason to incorporate a stereo processed signal in one body .
It had a value when transmission was monoaural and signal ,amp and speaker
were one .

Not sure I agree, but that's ok. I had a huge FM antenna but I needed a very tall mast and a rotator to use it and that never happened. Now it's all trash.
