The radio plays whatever you stream to it via Bluetooth and wont receive stations via traditional radio airways. However, almost every radio station now broadcasts over the internet. These broadcasts can be easily accessed using apps such as TuneIn and IHeart Radio. Other streaming audio apps include Audible.com, Pandora, Spotify, Google Play, and Amazon Prime Music. Simply find your favorite radio station or music service and stream it via Bluetooth to the radio for a truly amazing and unique audio experience!
It is fitted with an internal Bluetooth wireless amplifier and receiver which easily pairs to your iPhone, Android or Bluetooth enabled device (within a 30 foot radius).
The volume control is done via your smartphone or Bluetooth enabled device.
Use the radio's volume control knob to turn the radio on or off. The radio's power cable was replaced with a standard 12 volt power supply which plugs into any US outlet.
