Bells, whistles and brushed aluminium on your home stereo are great — if you're into that sort of thing. But if you want something a bit more Mad Men and less Mad Max, check out the Victoria Nostalgic Internet Radio.
Built by Grace Audio, the Victoria Nostalgic mixes vintage 1940s styling and modern internet connectivity. It runs Pandora natively with controls on the stereo face as well as supports SiriusXM, Rhapsody, and 50,000 other preset internet radio stations and on-demand content. The Victoria Nostalgic connects wirelessly via a Wi-Fi 802.11n card either directly to a router or to your home network, allowing you to stream music directly to your computer, or you can connect locally using the USB port. The Grace Digital
Remote Control app (free) turns your iOS or Android device into — you guessed it — a remote for the stereo. $US230 from Grace Audio.
