The lowest price: 35.96$
You can buy it at RegNow for that price.
Powerful but easy to use. Works with regular streams and with Live365. Allows recording while listening.
Did not seem to be able to handle XM Radio streams.

If you like listening to radio on the internet, you may want to give AudioStreamer a try.

It brings you a long list of available internet streams (“radios”) and you can choose the one you want by connection quality, genre, or search by keywords. Once you find a radio you want to listen, you just double click on it, relax, and enjoy.

It also allows you to listen to Live365 radios, what increases the number of available radios by the thousands, and to make things even easier, you can store your Live365 user id and password so that you don’t need to type them every time.

The list of features does not stop there. You can record while listening, create your list of favorites, listen to your recordings, get information about the station, etc. If you upgrade to the Pro version, you could edit your recordings and burn them to a CD. However, the Pro version, as expected, is more expensive.

The installation is easy and simple. The software used about 8.3 Mb of disk space. A broadband connection such as cable modem or DSL is preferred for streaming. AudioStreamer comes with a summarized help but you will barely need it, as the implementation is elegant, the features and controls are clear, and the messages displayed are meaningful.


AudioStreamer is a well conceived and designed product that performs its intent with simplicity and yet provides powerful features.
