The attraction- Thousands of radio stations from all over the world. Podcasts. Audio books. No computer needed to listen -- just a broadband connection and a Wi-Fi gateway or wireless router. And The Phoenix gives you the ability to add ANY viable audio source.
Simply go through the short initial set-up, and register your serial number online to create your personal management page. You only need to do this if you want to add a station or podcast that is not already in the preloaded menu listed by genre, country, state and city.
"Com One's Phoenix Radio has taken radio to a new level," said Com One Executive Vice President Christophe Dissaux. We've reached our Phase 1 goal -- to provide thousands of global listening choices with free access. Broadcast can't touch the range of program offerings; satellite can't touch the cost."
The Phoenix Radio's new firmware upgrade provides improved Wi-FI quality and stability with a WPA connection that is 25% faster than the previous version and with an enhanced dynamic network bandwidth manager. Plus, a unique new "My Network" feature allows you to access UPnP music sources present on your home network or computer through Windows Media Player. Other new features include "Snooze" function on the alarm clock to provide second and third wake-up sounds and "Sleep" function on the alarm clock to shut the radio off after a pre-set amount of time. Firmware upgrades are available on all Phoenix radios by following simple prompts on the navigation dial.
