Terratec NOXON iRadio
Terratec is today shipping the NOXON iRadio, its latest Internet-connected audio device. The iRadio is an all-in-one upgrade to the earlier NOXON 2 and includes its own speaker to let owners listen to Internet radio without toting a separate speaker array. Its extra size also makes room for more direct controls, including quick-access presets and a rotary knob for smoother navigation.
Format support has been expanded since the NOXON 2's release and now includes unprotected AAC and OGG audio streams to complement the existing MP3 and WMA playback. A clock, display magnification, and a sleep timer have also been added. Terratec maintains its cross-platform software and ships the iRadio with El Gato's eyeConnect streaming software for Mac OS X as well as TwonkyMusic for Windows users. The company sells its flagship NOXON for €229 ($303).
