I agree - I have the Onyx and it's boombox, the only reason the living room has a TTR1 is the window faces the wrong way. I finally lashed out and activated the Tivoli for beside the bed and wish I had done it ages ago. I like my radio to be a radioIf I had my window back, I'd use my Lynx
I don't like fussing around with an app or web player while I'm working. I'd rather just drop the radio in the dock and let it go.
The negative I see with the app and internet is using the listening data to formulate channels and programming. The listening habits of actual radio listeners are really unknown. SiriusXM knows I listen to Bloomberg some mornings - courtesy of the TTR1, but have no idea what I listen to in the car on the way to work. It was Symphony Hall this morning, I felt like a change. But I digress
