Terratec Noxon 2 review

 

The Noxon 2 connects to your broadband network and allows you to listen to radio channels broadcast via the internet – plus it has an iPod dock, too

Detailed, balanced delivery ; great feature list

Just not a big enough sound for the money

A real jack-of-all-trades, but it doesn’t sound perfect

Terratec Noxon 2 review

 

Built-in Wi-Fi and internet radio lift this iPod dock/radio alarm clock above the 'Pod-charging crowd

A compact and funky iPod dock with internet radio to boot, but we'd prefer the sound to be a bit chunkier

Terratec Noxon 2 review

 

Nifty internet radio streamer

Excellent favourites management

iTunes users won't like lack of AAC support

Only the lack of AAC support lets the Noxon down

Terratec Noxon 2 Audio

 

All of a sudden there's a real buzz about internet radio. So Terratec's Noxon 2 which streams web and locally stored MP3, WMA and M3U tracks couldn't be timed better.

Internet radio is cheap and diverse, and enables you to discover music and expand your horizons. Now Terratec has provided an easy way of sharing your spoils with the rest of the family.

Noxon 2

 

Add the radical new Noxon radio to your home stereo setup.

Connects you to over 2,500 radio stations without a computer - including BBC stations

Odd design, confusing remote and menu, awkward built-in menu system

Internet radio is a fantastic addition to any household and the Noxon 2 is among the best units on the market. Its iPod control is a let-down, however - it would be better if it acted as a throughput and speaker system rather than providing its own menu.

Review : Belkin USB Anywhere

 

On the face of it a device that most of us could have made use of at sometime or other, however is it all that it seems to be?

I have seen the Belkin USB Anywhere advertised for £22.14 from the first link below

Terratec Noxon 2

 

Despite looking a bit like a pimped up Mac mini, the Terrac Noxon 2 is a pretty decent streamer, and certainly an improvement on last year's model. Although the styling is all its own, the screen's menu interface is practically identical to that found...

Solid all round performance, good connection options

Peculiar design, average screen

Terratec Noxon 2 Audio

 

With this device from Terratec you can play music from your computer and internet connection in other rooms of your house.

A good value audio-streaming device that can transfer music from your computer or internet connection and play it through a stereo or any other speakers you might have lying around.

Product Specifications

With the new NOXON 2 audio, TerraTec Electronic guarantees pure wireless music pleasure throughout the entire house. The device sends the music collection stored on the hard drive of your home computer as well as thousands of web-based radio stations to every corner of the house-wirelessly. Prerequisites are a WLAN network (ideally a router with a wireless access point), broadband Internet access (such as DSL) and an active speaker system or stereo system. Eye candy included: because the unit itself shines in silver metallic finish, the surface is a trendy creamy color and the display lights up in blue. The functional design is simple: With perfect ease, the NOXON 2 audio establishes an ad-hoc connection to a laptop or connects to a wireless network through a WLAN router. An integrated USB 2.0 host adds the finishing touch for complete music diversity: Use it to connect a portable MP3 player (with mobile storage compatibility) or a portable USB 2.0 hard drive containing your personal play lists. The NOXON 2 audio plays MP3 and WMA audio formats at up to 320 kbps. The audio player is designed for 54 Mbit networks (802.11g) and can also be operated on 11 Mbit networks (802.11b), while the external antenna ensures good signal quality. WEP and WPA encryption support provides secure data transport from the sender to the receiver. It's just as easy to tune in to any of the infinitely many, mostly ad-free, niche radio stations on the Internet. You don't even need the computer to do so: as long as there's an access point available, the NOXON 2 audio can connect to the Internet on its own. The remote control that comes with it lets you switch stations at the touch of a button, while the WLAN audio player lets you display stations sorted by genre or language.
