MagicBox Online Radio

Seeking to streamline Internet radio for those who prefer not to use their PC, Reciva is now shipping its Magicbox IMP online radio. Instead of manually entering site addresses, listeners press buttons on the radio itself to access an international directory of Internet radio stations broadcasting in most streaming formats, including MP3, RealAudio, and Windows Media. Browsing is possible by country as well as by genre. Receiving the stream is handled through a WiFi receiver that connects to any standard wireless network, including those with WEP encryption. An option also exists to navigate and stream content directly from a host PC, which expands format support to AAC, Audible, and other standards. Reciva currently sells the MagicBox for 149 ($284) and can export to the US.
