I want a new reciever that will let me get Pandora on Wi-Fi.

by tyancey00 / January 7, 2010 12:18 AM PST

I have looked at some recievers and they say XM ready but i want to just listen to Pandora from my home Wi-Fi set up. I know you can buy a boom box that will do this but i don't see any home recievers that have this feature. Can you help?

I'd put the money toward a HTPC instead

You might have more control this way in what gets sent along to your A/V setup.

no reciever?

I was just looking for a reciever that would also use my Wi-Fi at home to dial up Pandora.

Ethernet is available and would work better

Wifi enabled receivers are still not widely available. Ethernet however is becoming more and more common as a standard feature. Ideally you would not stream pandora since wired quality will be better. Here's an example of an ethernet enabled receiver. There are probably some much cheaper.

I love streaming Pandora on my HTIB

Samsung HT-BD3252

also streams netflix (recent firmware upgrades should give you access to blockbuster and youtube which I haven't bothered with yet).

Includes blue-ray player and wireless rear speaker setup. as low as $599.
