Conclusion

  • No Line-out
  • Award
    Silver Award!


  • Using this radio is easy and straight forward from the first minutes. Sound quality is okay for a speaker of this size, near perfect for a "kitchen radio". MM220 has just enough bass not to sound thin. Similarly sized Tivoli Audio Model One has a bit more pleasing sound overall but it's also more expensive and has no internet radio capability. Still there is room for slight improvement on the output side as for some reason Sweex has not designated line-out connector that would allow users to hook the radio up with better speakers. You can always use the headphones plug but it's not the proper way.

    For non-critical background listening (which this is meant for) sound quality is good. On usability side there is one slight issue to complain about and that is the main knob that is bit too hard to press. Sometimes the whole radio moves on the table when trying to make a selection. Overall I was left with highly positive impression of the Sweex MM220 Wi-Fi Internet Radio.

    Current price for the MM220 here in Europe is 149 euros ($222).

    • Very nice, I'd like to get one of these or a Logitech Squeeze Box for my home. How expensive is this?
