A WS receiver cannot be used to play Internet radio.

Cheers

The sat radio has a amp that is only useful .

More likely the decoder + Dac is one chip .. if to are different some mods can be done .

However it is like reinventing the wheel , waste of time .
Better get a 6k web radio or do a full diy built from scratch .

I am also a newbie in these items ...
However Aluratek and ASUS should be reliable .They are economical too. If you pick from US it will be near 4k.
Via 20north etc these are 5-6k.

I have seen a pendrive product of Aluratek here in BLR ,
(it needs PC to play allthe time).. i will ask for the radio unit if the seller have.

Hi kaushik

thanks ,.
tried to buy the ALURETEK reciever from Amazon , cost $100 , but the final price is $ 220 , ( shipping + import charges ) , this is crazy for paying double the price
any indian dealers for these kind of receivers, because its worth paying $200 for the stuff alone , not for other costs like,.. shipping and import duties
