Radio: Sound System, DJ Booth and Alarm Clock in One
Many people tune in the radio every day. The radio is number one for casual listening - on the way to work, while cooking or in the morning in the bathroom. And the devices are increasingly adapting to the needs of their users. Today, many designer radios are portable speakers and provide an integrated docking station. Moreover, they support the use of internet radio via Wi-Fi or work with Bluetooth. Find your favorite speaker or radio online at Connox!
The History of Radio
In the 19th century, physicist Heinrich Hertz proved the distribution of electromagnetic waves through the air. For the time being, the discovery was only used for military purpose. In October 1923, the first radio station finally went live. A studio band performed foxtrot songs live. Since then, radio has celebrated great success. Until this day, the radio continuously grew in relevance. Find out more about the history and the success of DAB (i.e. “Digital Audio Broadcasting”) devices in the post “The History of the Radio” in our Home Design Blog.
Bluetooth Speakers: Your Favorite Music Anywhere & Anytime
Bluetooth is now one of the minimum requirements for many radio users. Bluetooth makes it possible to connect smartphones and laptops to your speaker and to use it as a portable speaker. This is particularly beneficial outdoors to avoid chargers. Many portable designer radios have a rechargeable battery. For example, the ZIPP MINI New Line by Libratone. It has battery runtime of up to 10 hours and guarantees excellent sound. Moreover, it offers the possibility to charge your phone or other devices via an included USB connector.
Radio Alarm Clock: Start Your Day With Music
For those who want distraction from the classic alarm clock, a radio alarm clock might be a good idea. A radio alarm clock allows you to wake up to your favorite songs and current hits. Another handy feature: When getting ready to leave the house, you can simply continue listening to music. Tivoli Audio's PAL+ BT has the classic retro charm. The alarm setting with two different adjustable times ensures that you will never be late. The table radio wakes you either with an alarm tone or the sounds of your favorite radio stations.
Tivoli Audio: Unusual Designs and Crystal Clear Sound
Manufacturer Tivoli Audio sells DAB, DAB+ and PAL+ devices that comply with the highest standards of design and quality. On the outside, the radios are reminiscent of “grandma’s old radio”. But the technology inside the speakers has thoroughly changed since then. Since the first radio - the Model Eight - new brand developments have constantly been added.
Retro Radio: Charm and Nostalgia
Whether you prefer a radio with a wooden case such as the ART Model One or one of extravagant blue silicone in 80s style such as the Tykho Radio: With a retro radio, you are on the safe side to be trendy. Like with all retro devices, the operating service is as simple and user-friendly as possible. All you need is an on and off switch, a channel knob and a volume button.
