TerraTec shows Noxon 2 Wi-Fi iPod dock

All-in-one music player does it all

TerraTec has announced the launch of the Noxon 2 wireless radio iPod dock. It's a wireless audio player which incorporates an iPod docking station, wireless internet radio and intuitive podcast receiver. It also has a multi format network player for music from the hard drive and FM radio.

TerraTec says the Noxon 2 sets a new benchmark in the music player field, saying music played through it "has the best bass and clearest treble levels."

Many music fans have their collections distributed across a variety of media and technologies, resulting in snarled cables, stacks of burned CDs and general file-format chaos. TerraTec reckons that the new Noxon 2 is the answer to these problems - but it comes at a price. When it goes on sale in the UK at the end of this month it will cost £250.

  • Wireless audio streaming via WLAN or Ethernet.
  • Plays internet radio even without a PC.
  • Plays copyright protected music contents in WMA format (including Microsoft DRM10).
  • Easy access to music collections via UPnP (MP3 / WMA / AAC / OGG Vorbis)

  • Convenient handling via an IR remote control or buttons on the device.

  • Separate headphones output.
  • Digital audio output (optical S/P-DIF interface)
  • IEEE 802.11 b/g wireless
