TerraTec Electronic has announced the NOXON 2 radio for iPod.

Don't let the simple appearance of this little 2.1 speaker system fool you - it has got big ambitions.

Its integrated Universal Dock turns your iPod into a stereo system and charges it. You can also select and play any one of over 10,000 internet radio stations from around the world without needing to boot your computer.

The NOXON2 has a sorting system that can memorise your favourites and can be customized in detail whilst a wide range of podcasts are available at the touch of a button.

Thanks to the encrypted 802.11 b/g wireless you can stream music to it from your computer, its USB port lets you connect external hard drives and memory sticks, it's got line-out to hook it up to a bigger system, remote control and a headphone socket.

One last nice touch - your choice of operating system is no problem — software is included for Windows, Mac and Linux.

This innovative WLAN audio player incorporates some pretty unique features: with its iPod docking station, wireless internet radio, intuitive podcast receiver, multiformat network player for music from the hard drive and FM radio, the NOXON 2 radio appears to have (nearly) all the angles covered.

The NOXON 2 will be available from the end June for £249.99.
