Tivoli Targets June Intro for NetWorks Internet Radio
Tivoli Audio founder and CEO Tom DeVesto has set a June timeframe for shipment of the product whose concept he outlined almost a year ago: the Tivoli Audio NetWorks Radio, the company’s first model to receive over the Internet both traditional AM/FM radio stations and any Internet stations and podcasts.
The form factor of the new product is radically different from the prototype shown last June, looking more like the company’s vertical PAL radio but sporting a wood finish that is a signature characteristic of its inaugural product, the Model One table radio. It comes with a remote control.
“This radio permits wireless home audio networking without the need for a computer; all it requires is a Wi-Fi or Ethernet connection, which will also allow it to receive software upgrades automatically later on. It’s infinitely upgradable,” said DeVesto.
