Livio Radio, with Pandora access
April 16, 2009 by Arlen Schweiger

Instead of having to change stations every time a song comes on that you don’t like, how about just giving it a quick “thumbs down” and moving on to the next tune, on the same station?

That’s part of the attraction to the world of Pandora radio, of which you’re perhaps familiar with by now. No trolling through the dial—just creating and letting your personalized radio stations evolve with your own taste in music.

Livio Radio is hoping you’ll find that to be part of its appeal as well. The stand-alone Livio Radio is the first such device to let you do the whole “thumbs up/thumbs down” thing right on the front panel, and on its remote control.

You can access your personalized Pandora stations with your existing account, and being an Internet radio player, the Livio also lets you tap into 11,000-plus global web stations through the Reciva streaming service.

With just a single speaker you’re probably not going to use Livio as your main stereo tuner, but the system should keep you rocking while you’re at work, maybe in a home office, sitting outdoors, or preparing meals in the kitchen.

It comes with a Wi-Fi antenna and Ethernet cable so you can access the web stations wired or wirelessly to keep you constantly in tune. Right now it’s available in the U.S. for $150.
