Grace Solo tuner has iPhone remote control

Grace Digital hoped to stand out among Internet radio tuners with the Solo. The hub links up to any existing speaker system and streams either 18,000 preset stations, custom-programmed stations, or services like iheartradio, Live365, Pandora and Sirius over an 802.11g Wi-Fi link. Although it has built-in controls, it's unique in having the option of an iPhone app (free, App Store) that serves both as a remote control and as a way of checking track info away from the built-in screen.

The Solo holds up to 110 stations as favorites and will serve as a media receiver for content stored on Macs and Windows PCs on the local network. A clock is similarly built-in and will not only sleep or wake to music but has as many as five different alarms.

Grace should already be shipping the Solo both online and through retail. The tuner sells for $125 without any bundled speakers.
