Tivoli NetWorks Radios

Tivoli Audio on Friday introduced a pair of radios that merge conventional FM radio with Internet streaming. The NetWorksGo and NetWorks Table Radio are both based on the company's analog-only SongBook and Model One respectively but add Internet streaming. Either can tune MP3 (Shoutcast), Real, or Windows Media radio channels through a wired Ethernet connection or through Wi-Fi for more remote locations. Stations are preset, Tivoli says, but can be requested by users and added through firmware updates applied on the user's end by a button press. Both radios can recognize media shared by local Macs or PCs, the company adds. Offline digital devices such as iPods and other players can hook in through an aux-in jack or a USB connection.

Aside from visual differences, the systems vary by the roles suggested in their names. The Table Radio version relies solely on wall outlet power and is meant for the home, while the NetWorksGo is geared to vacationers with power supplied either by an outlet or six C-cell batteries for several hours away from a plug.

The cost of each system and their exact release dates is still undetermined, but Tivoli hopes to deliver both sometime during the fall and may add or change features in the run-up to the final launch. [via Crave]
