A computer is not needed if you have just the router but if you have a computer you can wirelessly stream music from it to the NetWorks radio as well. You can search stations by name, genre and country and also use the included remote control. Other features include a USB port for connecting MP3 players and separate subwoofer/line/recording outputs. Like the original NetWorks, a selection of custom wood grain cabinets is available.

I got to play with this product a bit, without the second speaker. A little too rich for my blood, especially because I don't think the value is there compared to the Squeezebox Boom. Either way, both lose major points for me by not having digital outputs, and the Tivoli loses even more for not having a battery backup (as far as I know). I want a quality alarm clock unit with the ability to be a digital transport for use with higher quality components and speakers/headphones. Seems like it's not in the business interests of Slim Devices, and it's too much to ask for from anyone else.
