The Q2 Internet Radio
The internet radio that is simple and fun to use, just tilt it to change station or tip it to raise or lower the volume.

What is Wi-Fi Internet Radio?

Internet radio has actually been around since the mid-1990's. You can listen to an internet radio station by visiting the broadcaster's website and listen in to radio station broadcasts from all around the world, and all within easy reach via your desktop or laptop computer. There is usually a link to listen to a live broadcast and sometimes a link to listen to older recorded shows and podcasts. There are now literally well over 10,000 stations and counting, offering content in just about most languages from all over the world, on all subjects and interests and just about all musical types, styles and genres.

While this is great if you are sitting in front of your desktop or laptop computer, it's not really convenient if you just want to check out the world of internet radio but don't want to have to switch on your computer just to listen. Well now you can with the Q2 Wi-Fi Internet Radio.

The Q2 Wi-Fi Internet Radio picks up a signal from your wireless connection which is broadcast from your wireless router. A wireless router sends out a wireless or Wi-Fi signal that you would usually use to connect your laptop to the internet without wires. So to listen to Internet Radio over Wi-Fi you will need to make sure you already have a broadband internet connection, a wireless router, and the Q2 Wi-Fi Internet Radio.

What Makes Q2 Wi-Fi Internet Radio Different?

The Q2 Internet Radio
Q2's approach to Wi-Fi Internet Radio is different

It's not about bells & whistles it's about simplicity. Results from our research is overwhelmingly clear, that despite the fact we all have access to the many thousands of radio stations and channels to choose from online, we all gravitate to just a handful of our favourite stations in the end! Q2 Wi-Fi Internet Radio has no buttons or controls and has just 4 presets. To change a channel, just turn the Q2 cube on to one of its sides, 4 sides 4 channels. To raise or lower the volume, just tip the Q2 Radio up or tilt it down.

Q2 Wi-Fi Radio has changed the way in which we access the internet

Like all other Internet Receivers on the market Q2 offers you exactly the same access to choice. For the many thousands of satisfied customers that have already purchased the Q2 Wi-Fi Internet Radio one thing is coming across loud and clear, you love Q2 Radio; you love its simplicity & style, its cuteness & fun and its performance verses size. And that it's not just about having quick access to the many thousands of podcasts and radio stations from around the world, it's about having quick access to the 4 that you really love.

Q2 has become for many a window to the sounds, music and news from their home towns or country. It connects them with their favourite musical genres from all around the world. It connects them to their preferred faith and religion or sports and news. It opens up a world of traditional and contemporary children's content and so on.

From what we are hearing, it would seem that for many, Q2 has become more than a just an Internet Radio, it's become a companion. So come on and join the Q2 revolution.

The Q2 is a cute piece of kit. An easy to set-up app on your PC enables you to select your wifi network and then 4 internet streamed radio stations from anywhere in the world. Program them into the cube and you're ready to go. Then disconnect from your laptop/desktop. To select the station, turn on the Q2 (switch on the back) and place it onto one of its sides to select a radio station from your 4 selections (Each side is marked on top from I to IIII). An LED flashes red while it searches for the network, green once it connects and starts searching, and goes out when you're connected to the selected radio station. Volume is altered by tilting forward to turn it down, face up to turn it up (slightly fiddly to get the right level - this could have been better designed with a small twist knob on the back, but it's an entertaining novelty). Turn it down on its face and it switches off. Sound quality is great - good range and good power. Wifi connectivity has been excellent, but I do have boosters around the house so I have a 5 bar everywhere network. Battery life is good. Several hours of running before you have to put it back on the USB to charge. OK, 4 radio stations may seem a bit limiting, but plugging it back in and changing those stations is so easy that, if your listening habits are very varied and you'd be listening to more than 4 stations (not sure how many people do!?) then the Q2 is still a very useful piece of kit. It seems a bit pricey for what it is when it first emerges from the box, perhaps related to the fact it's very compact and light, but the fact it's so easy to set up, and the fact it does what it says on the box with a high degree of reliability and performance justifies the cost. If you want some portable, flexible radio sounds around your house, especially if you want to keep up with news in the old country over the Internet, the Q2 is just the ticket. Buy with confidence.

Got this for elderly relative and setting up/trialling it as I type.
No buttons means its impossible for the fumble fingered to mess up the setup. Getting the volume right is an acquired skill but it does not detract from the overall experience. All the regional German info stations seem to be available so top marks for that.

This product currently at £56 delivered by Amazon is a absolute bargain and wonderful gift. Quality design and construction has gone into this. I hope there's no chance of this model being discontinued.

Also it is a very rare thing: A battery powered internet radio that works in practice. I got over 4 hours continuous play before the LED started blinking to warn it needed a recharge. Pure make a rechargeable Internet radio but it costs an arm/leg for the battery pack bringing total price to £130 on their cheapest offering.

Here are the tips:

- Sound quality: Some reviews say it's bass light, others say plenty of bass, why? Easy, if you want some bass, place in an alcove or corner. Mind you, even on table top the sound is musical on music and very clear on speech.

- Connectivity: My model is fine using WPA. I have a WiFi repeater that broadcasts the same SSID on the same channel for the garden. Sometimes the Q2 will disconnect when moving from the house to the garden zones or back. Solved by switching the Q2 off & on again and waiting a bit.

A real weakness in concept is that you need to have a Windows or Mac computer (remember those?) located at home to do the setup. This Q2 could be upgraded in firmware (in theory) so that at least the 4-station preset list could be changed via a Q2 server that you login to. Probably.

Q2 must have some great designers and makers behind the scenes.

Colour Name: Black Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I'm extremely impressed with this little box, and would recommend it. Setup is very simple using the supplied quick start guide, be sure to read it before attaching the radio to one of your computer' USB ports.
The setup software, which has to be downloaded from the Q2 Radio website, found my Netgear router very quickly and, as soon as I'd provided the password, it connected immediately to the internet. Before downloading the setup software, I downloaded the setup instructions and User Guide, which are simple, but perfectly adequate for the job. It's worth spending a few minutes reading through before starting.
Using the control panel, four programmes or podcasts can be dragged from an extensive list to the "Chosen Stations and Podcasts" panel. The programme location is marked with one, two, three or four lines, which match the lines marked on the top, botom, left and right sides of the radio. Selection of the programme to be played, is a simple matter of placing the radio with the side matching the required programme on the top.
After turning the radio on by using the small switch on the back, it takes about half a minute to establish the Wi-Fi connection and find the selected programme. A red LED flashes during this period, and changes to green when connected. Once playing, the volume can be changed by tipping the radio backwards to increase volume and forwards to lower it.
Charging is done through the supplied multi-national charger, or from a USB connection; an amber LED behind the front panel warns of low nattery.
I've used it all over the house, and right at the end of my garden, without problems and, because of its simplicity, it will be absolutely ideal for use in the garden in the summer.
