Sangean intros WFR-20 tabletop WiFi radio - Engadget

It's been nearly a year since we've heard from Sangean, but the company is hitting back with a swank new WiFi internet radio that's shaped a good deal like its past units. The WFR-20 offers up 'direct access to over 6,000 Internet Radio stations (and 21,242 on-demand streams) in 250 locations from 60 genres,' and you can organize your favorites in the My Stations folder. Additionally, it's designed to operate with or without a PC, and if you have a networked computer nearby with Windows Media Player, you can have 'full access to your digital media library using the UPnP Server.' Furthermore, you'll find a three-line display, four alarms, an aux input, dual five-watt speakers, and a wireless remote to boot, but there's no word on a price or release date just yet.

I like the idea that I can stream music to the radio from Media player. I can be out in the garage and still listen to my own music on a WiFi radio without having to have a computer out there. Could this be used to broadcast also? I know the range would not be far if it is possible.
