Is the world crying out for more stand-alone web radios? We just saw the Sanyo R227 yesterday. Now Tivoli says they are finally releasing the NetWorks line.
NetWorks is a stand-alone device, which uses Wi-Fi to tune into free web radio without the need for a computer. There isn’t much of a difference between this and the Sanyo unit, except Tivoli says you can store a whopping 200 stations. It can also stream non-DRM music from your PC.
Also, the Tivoli unit has some classy wood craftsmanship. However, that will cost you a cool $600, which sort of takes the fun out of the whole “free radio” thing. Tivoli also says that FM and DAB versions cost a little more. Each of the systems is “automatically upgradeable,” and that doesn’t include the possibilities of adding a CD player or subwoofer.
The NetWorks line is available now in cherry, walnut or wenge.
