That's the second portable Internet radio unit you have - or perhaps the third - let truth be told.

Not only do you have your Blaze ET but you also have the Samsung Galaxy phone, command it to "Listen To BBC Radio 4" and see what happens <smile>.

Happy Listening whatever and however you're listening.

Hello everybody

I posted a couple of days ago regarding the Victor Reader Stream and the Blaze ET. I’m very pleased to be able to report now that my Victor Reader Stream (2013 Generation) has decided that it does like my network after all, and it has now gone online and downloaded a major update to its firmware. I’m delighted to say that the V4.7.2 update has reinstated the working links to the BBC’s radio services and, as such, they are all working again. That is, for me at least, a pretty major plus point. I’ve been looking for a portable radio solution that gives me Internet radio services for quite some time, and now, I have one sitting on the arm of my chair.

One thing I like about the Victor Reader Stream is its Internet playlist support. Tell it which country you want to listen too, and you get a menu full of stations from that country. I think, from memory, the International playlist is actually all grouped into one, which could be better. But at least it works.

Incidentally, I have also been researching the Victor Reader Stratus, to see what the differences are between it and the Stream. It appears that the Stratus is a far less portable version of the Stream. It contains a CD drive, SD card slot, USB port, I think that is a fun size port. But it does not handle miscellaneous audio books, has no Audible support and is far less flexible about text and other files.

Given this information, I see absolutely no advantage in the Stratus. I don’t see anything that it will do better than either the Stream or the Blaze ET. So as far as I’m concerned, I have the right models to suit me.


My compliments and kindest regards
