Tivoli Audio in the news
Boston, MA – If you like listening to Italian Opera direct from Milan or rock music from New York City, or any specialty, niche radio station from any location in the world in its native language, in real time, Tivoli Audio’s NetWorks Table Radio is for you. Tivoli Audio lets you tune in to literally thousands of free radio stations from all around the world with its first Internet table radio – aptly called NetWorks. Designed for home use, NetWorks delivers a pop-and-crackle-free signal from any station that has a Web site address. The elegantly simple, yet technologically advanced NetWorks was designed by Tivoli Audio Chairman and CEO Tom DeVesto. “It has been our goal to continually bring the most innovative radios to market with the quality and high performance that our customers have come to expect from Tivoli Audio,” says Mr. DeVesto. “Our first NetWorks Internet table radio combines function and design with the ability to deliver the world of radio broadcasts to home radio listeners.” In addition to accessing AM and FM stations via a wireless broadband or wifi Internet connection, NetWorks connects to thousands of free radio stations worldwide. Internet radio can even receive many HD multi-cast and DAB stations, previously only available from expensive HD or dedicated DAB receivers. A traditional FM tuner with RDS data (where available) provides continual service when Internet service is unavailable. NetWorks even has the ability to stream music files from any computer via an Ethernet or wifi connection. NetWorks is compatible with all popular music formats, including MP3, WMA, and Real Audio. Also included is a USB input to connect a compatible MP3 player or memory stick. Additional features include a digital clock, dual independent alarms with sleep timer and snooze function, compact remote control, and easy-to-read four line by 16 character back-lighted display. NetWorks employs a full-range 3” magnetically shielded driver capable of reproducing the highest quality audio performance. For true stereo sound, NetWorks provides a right channel output for an optional matching Stereo Speaker, sold separately. As a music system, NetWorks includes a stereo headphone, record and subwoofer output and a mixing input for use with a computer. “In keeping with Tivoli Audio’s design philosophy, NetWorks is very easy to use – simply access the Internet and start listening. You don’t have to be a computer expert or even need a computer to operate it,” adds Mr. DeVesto. The NetWorks radio easily searches for stations by country, genre, or a station’s call letters. It is also the first Tivoli Audio product to be user-upgradeable, so your advanced radio will keep pace with rapidly changing technology. The new Tivoli Audio NetWorks Internet radio measures 8-3/8” W x 4-1/2” H x 5-1/4” D and comes in a variety of furniture-grade wood cabinets accented by different color faceplates. NetWorks Internet radio will be sold nationwide, beginning late 2007 at distinctive retail stores, or direct by calling toll-free at 1-877-297-9479 or visiting the company’s Web site at www.tivoliaudio.com. The retail price is to be determined.
