Internet Radio seems to be the hot new topic on gadget sites and blogs, but what does it really mean to you? Before we tell you how fantastic the Intempo GX is, we have tried to answer some of your most common questions.
What is Internet Radio?
In a nutshell, Internet Radio lets you listen to the radio via the Internet without having to log on to a computer. These radios pick up stations and on-demand content which are streamed on the Internet via a broadband connection.
Internet radio has no geographic locations so a broadcaster in China can be heard in the UK. The number of available Internet radio stations is always rising but at the last count there are over 10,000 stations you can listen to, meaning access to uptodate news and music from all over the world. And, since lots of stations store their back catalogue of shows, you can even listen on-demand if you miss something you love.
What is the GX-01?
The Intempo GX (affectionately called Galaxy at Intempo Towers) is Intempos first Internet Radio and is officially loved by the popular gadget magazine, T3 (November issue)
The GX has been hailed as one of the easiest Internet Radios to use. When it is in range of a wireless connection then it will automatically detect the network and offers the option to connect. Once this link is established, the GX will upload channel listings alphabetically by country and genre.
You can also use a network cable and hardwire your GX, meaning that you dont necessarily have to have Wi-Fi in your home to listen to news and music from around the world. The GX can also cleverly stream music saved on your PC over your home wireless network and also features an impressive Podcast directory on the top level menu, meaning you dont need a PC or MP3 player to listen to your favourite podcasts!
Its even got a USB port for memory stick support plus a handy remote control with 99 presets.
The GX is the perfect kit for radio enthusiasts and music lovers; you can enjoy talk radio, sports radio, political debates and news on current global issues plus a melting pot of global music. You can also connect it to some powerful Intempo speakers and the GX will cleverly be transformed from a stand-alone unit .
