If you cannot go home for the holidays, Tivoli Audio takes you there by tuning in to your favorite local radio stations with its new breakthrough WiFi NetWorks global audio system. Taking advantage of broadcasting over the Internet, NetWorks delivers crystal-clear reception of thousands of free radio stations, near or far, without the need for a computer. NetWorks allows listeners to tune in to Italian Opera from Milan, rock music from New York City, Rugby from Australia, or that local hometown station from any location in the world in its native language, and in real time. So if home happens to be located in Missouri or Macedonia and you reside in Chicago, those familiar radio stations are simply a NetWorks setting away.
It also allows access to music stored on a PC from any room in the house through a wireless or Ethernet connection. NetWorks features Tivoli Audio-quality sound as a stand-alone unit, but can be expanded with a stereo speaker, CD player, or subwoofer. And the NetWorks audio system builds upon Tivoli Audio’s reputation as a design leader, offering a choice of furniture-quality hardwood cabinets in Cherry, Walnut or Wenge. The result is an elegantly simple, beautifully designed, yet technologically-advanced NetWorks that points to the future of home audio entertainment.
“It has been our goal to continually bring the most innovative, award-winning audio products to market with the quality and high performance that our customers have come to expect from Tivoli Audio,” says Tivoli Audio Chairman and CEO Tom DeVesto. “The greatest challenge in designing NetWorks was in making it simple to use. It combines function and design with the ability to deliver the world of radio broadcasts to any room in the home, offering global audio networking that sounds as good as it looks.”
Accessing AM and FM stations via a Wi-Fi or Ethernet broadband connection without a computer, NetWorks connects to thousands of free radio stations worldwide. NetWorks makes searching for stations easy by country, genre or a station’s call letters and is the first audio product to be automatically upgradeable to keep continuous pace with rapidly changing technology. Its exclusive Global Portal can add an unlimited number of Internet stations to be stored to a “Favorites” list. These would include many HD Multi-cast and DAB stations, previously only available from expensive HD or dedicated DAB receivers. Enter the Global Portal at www.networks.tivoliaudio.com to add any radio station, chat with a NetWorks community, get the latest NetWorks news, and receive technical help electronically or from live audio experts.
It even has the ability to stream music files from a computer and is compatible with today’s most popular music formats. Other notable features include an adjustable Equalizer and SuperBuffertm, developed exclusively by Tivoli Audio to extend the standard buffer time and virtually eliminate Internet radio station dropouts.
The NetWorks Global Audio System may be ordered toll-free at 1-877-297-9479 or online at www.tivoliaudio.com. The retail price starts at $600 for the basic NetWorks, the FM and DAB versions cost slightly more.
When you can’t travel for the holidays, NetWorks keeps you tuned in to the sounds of home.
