I prefer stand alone Internet radios.

I do use other devices also, but radios are my preferred method of listening to stuff when at home.

Interesting article. In Europe, there are a lot of Frontier Silicon based radios around, from brands like Roberts, Revo, Technisat, Hama, DNT, Auna, Sangean, Dual and Goodmans, as well as some smaller brands like Numan and Lemega. Most of these radios also sport various combinations of DAB/DAB+, FM, Spotify, Bluetooth and so on, so I wouldn't say that internet radios are on the way out here. Some other brands use mediaU or TuneIn for their portals. It will be interesting to see if there are (m)any new models at the IFA in Berlin in September.

Same here. I also have an internet radio at work, connecting via a UMTS-WiFi modem thingy, with a 5GB/month data plan. I don't like using my smartphone or even my PC for internet radio.

You forgot to mention the Amazon Echo and Google Home - both offering internet radio streams via Tunein, and in the Echo case also by the Radioplayer skill for UK stations.
