Tivoli to ship NetWorks
Tivoli on Wednesday announced that the NetWorks – the company's mono digital music player – will ship within a few weeks. The unit is capable of streaming internet radio over WiFi or Ethernet, and also includes a USB port and audio input port for connecting to a number of different portable music devices. The player is expandable, with options for stereo output, CDs, a subwoofer, or surround sound setup. The Tivoli NetWorks starts at $600 for the monaural unit.
The NetWorks also features a simple equalizer with five adjustable presets, automatic software upgrades, and can store up to 100 favorite sources.
Since the box only features compatibility with WMA and MP3 audio, iPod and iTunes users may only be able to stream music in the MP3 format, as it will not read AAC formatted audio.
