This review is a little late coming, but here goes. I am on my third (yes) M500 after replacing two previous ones. The Roku M500 is a streaming audio box that allows you to stream internet radio, music from a NAS box, computer, iTunes, etc. It comes with a nice remote and it has a built-in display that’s bright and displays the time while off (via NTP update). I use (or used) the Roku because AM and FM reception are sketchy up here in the mountains, and also I like to listen to radio from Canada (CBC, etc.) from time to time. Most of the time I do not use it because I use my new Yamaha RX-V2700 to stream audio.
