Livio Offers A New Way To Get Net Radio In Your Car
June 23, 2010 at 5:58 AM (PT)
LIVIO RADIO is set to debut "The CARMEN," a portable Internet radio solution for use in cars. Compatible with the MAC or PC, the CARMEN connects to the computer with a USB cable and, using the client software, records and stores content from over 42,000 AM/FM and Internet-only radio stations streamed from around the world. Users may then connect the portable CARMEN to the vehicle’s 12-volt socket and play back the stored audio library through the car stereo using an open FM channel or auxiliary (AUX) input.
"The CARMEN is all about further expanding Internet radio consumption to the car," LIVIO RADIO Founder/COO JAKE SIGAL said. "We designed CARMEN with DVR in mind. It gives users access to local stations from across America and around the world -- their music, news and talk radio -- plus genres that you can’t find anywhere on AM/FM for plug-and-play listening and enjoyment in any vehicle."
The CARMEN Internet radio player carries an MSRP of $59.99 and will be available for distribution and retail sale this summer.
