You been thinking and thinking about buying a wireless Internet Radio receiver but the prices just have hit your sweet spot yet. After all, who could blame you? You're just being frugal in an economy that's still not giving you much love.

Well, I have another option for you: refurbished. And I don't mean "refurbished" like in an eBay listing where you have to buy from some anonymous store front or individual with just enough negative feedback to make your left eye twitch.

Grace Digital Audio manufactures Internet radios and sells them new from their website. But, the company also has a listing of refurbished products that are heavily discounted. Not only can you save a substantial amount of money on some neat tech, but the company will stand behind it with a 20 day money back guarantee. And they will throw in free shipping. Order by 3 p.m. EST ship the same day, too.

This is a gem.

The Grace Solo

When I visited the refurbished listing, there were a variety of offers. A refurbished Grace Solo wireless radio and media streamer was only $79.99. A new copy will cost you $129.99. This item is for someone who already owns a stereo or powered speakers but wants to add Internet Radio or music you've saved on your PC or MAC.

The Grace Solo supports Pandora, Live365, and Premium SiriusXM Internet. Tune in over 50,000 radio stations, podcasts, and on-demand audio.

The Grace Solo features a high contrast LCD display, remote control, a remote control iPhone app, 10 presets, headphone jack, RCA jack stereo connectors, dual band equalizer, 12/24 hour clock with date (synced via the Internet), sleep timer, 12 languages, and more.

The Grace Solo works with all 802.11b/g/n routers and supports three different encryption choices.

But, there are other refurbished possibilities at the Grace Digital Audio website. When I visited, an Allegro Wireless Internet Radio was selling for $89.00. This portable wireless radio and streamer is usually $169.00 new. This is a radio you can pick up and take room-to-room, inside and out. It has a high contrast LCD display, 5 presets, built-in amplifier, full-range speaker, dual band equalizer, a 12/24 hour clock with date (synced via the Internet), sleep timer, and built-in media player to stream audio files from a PC or MAC.

The Allegro Wireless Internet Radio is compatible with 802.11 b/g/n routers and comes with a remote and built-in battery recharging circuit to recharge NiMH rechargeable batteries.
