Radiopaq Rp5 radio
Internet radio and podcast hub Radiopaq.com on Thursday announced that it would bring its offerings to users without having to directly rely on their computers thanks to its new Rp5 radio. The Rp5 features five speakers for clear sound reproduction, and can synchronize with Radiopaq.com using its built-in Wi-Fi connection, allowing users to search for music and other audio content by name, genre, country or language. Settings users made on the website, such as favorites, are also transferred to the Rp5.
If a wireless network is not readily available, the Rp5 can play DAB content and also features an FM receiver. The other option is to connect compatible personal audio players via a USB connection. An info button will display all available track information on the Rp5's LCD screen.
The Radiopaq Rp5 is priced at the equivalent of about $460, and will launch in UK stores in September. [via Pocket-lint]
