Xstar Radio Iron is a lightweight software application designed specifically for helping you listen to online radio stations. It can be deployed on all Windows flavors out there.

You are welcomed by an animated display where you can check out two VU meters, visualization bars, and an old tape which reveals the name of the current radio station. You can change the looks of the GUI by choosing between several colorful themes.

There’s no support for a help manual but you can set up the dedicated parameters on your own because they look very easy to work with.

Xstar Radio Iron gives you the possibility to choose between several preset online radio channels which are displayed directly in the main window. The radio stations are grouped by countries so you can easily identify them in the list.

What’s more, you are allowed to play or pause the current radio station and adjust the volume by choosing between several preset values. On the downside, you cannot create a list with favorite stations and perform searches.

We have tested the program on Windows 8.1 Pro and noticed that it carries out a task quickly and without errors. It eats up a moderate amount of CPU and memory resources so the overall performance of the computer is not seriously affected. You can keep it running in the background (in your system tray) while working on the computer. The tool offers very good audio quality.

All things considered, Xstar Radio Iron comes packed with several handy features and an intuitive working environment for helping you access all sorts of Internet radio channels. It can be configured by rookies and professionals alike.
