Most people get a wifi radio so they can listen to their favorite stations with perfect clarity. With the CC WiFi Radio the stations are always clear, no matter how far away they are. You are also able to pick up stations on the CC WiFi that are difficult or impossible to get on a smartphone.
Music is probably a big part of your life and the CC Wifi lets you travel back in time and relive memories and feelings you thought you might never have again. You can receive your favorites anytime, anywhere with perfect clarity and maybe even a few tears. You can also listen to Pandora®, iHeart®, your favorite talk show or discover something new from an immense library of audio from all over the world in all languages.
The operation is more straightforward than finding a new station on a computer or smartphone. It does not have a color screen, so advertising is a tiny fraction of what is found on a smartphone or computer. You will probably find about 100 times more stations of the type you like (approximately 16,000 stations) than any satellite radio. . . all subscription free.
The CC WiFi has good audio for its size and it can be connected to your stereo system directly for superb audio. You can also use our FM Transmitter-2 to send the audio to a nearby radio or stereo.
Your WiFi network's name and password are necessary to use this radio.
All Internet radios require a broadband Internet connection.
Note: The CC WiFi uses Reciva technology. C. Crane has no control over content or the provider for internet radios.

All around best offering C. Crane has ever had. It's beats the heck out of the two previous offerings. Included are the Reciva database YAY!, iHeartRadio, radio.com CBS and Pandora.
I haven't seen any negatives yet. I don't think there are any. Maybe a bigger speaker would be nice. Bluetooth would be nice. These can be worked around however.
Listen to ANY wifi station that you can think of because it includes three of the major aggregators. No TuneIn but that's not even an issue because Reciva more than makes up and is far superior to it anyway.

This radio is great. The instructions made it easy to install and get connected to my WiFi router. I was then able to find and store stations that my wife wanted. One was in Fresno, one in Southern California and the tied in Denmark. It takes about a minute for the radio to start up, but after that it moves from preset to preset without delay. Sound is crystal clear. I highly recommend this radioo.
3 presets on front of radio. Can have 99 presets.Crystal clear sound.Can put out loud sound.
Takes about 1 minute to connect to router on start up.
News, music, clear radio stations, internet stations.

Great sound and can listen to stations all over the world.
Nice small size and great sound. Excellent station selection and customer service.
Had to send first radio back because it did not stay connected to WIFI. Replacement came quickly and works well. Finding stations is a bit tedious but is easy to save as pre-sets.
Great for listening to far-away stations or stations with weak signals.

Easy to workSound quality is good -very clear .Fewer Comercials Great station selection . You can even request one you like as long as you have a link. And you dont have to run your pc to hear music . Small size lends to easy placement .
Some stations have low bit rate so sound can be muffled .Like media player , the higher the rate the better sound . Most good station send out at 128 kbps or higher .
Listening to music for hours from great ataions you could not normally get

Good sound in small package. Enjoy traveling the world listening to music
So many stations to choose from. Great sound at a good price. No monthly fees.
Directions not real clear for a non-tech person. Radio shuts off on its own after about 3 hours.
Can listen to music from around the world. Use mainly in my shop.

I got this radio to use in an area where normal reception is very poor, and was very pleased with the results. The CC WiFi has good sound quality for all of the stations I have tried, now matter how far away the station.
Clear sound, unaffected by factors that affect over-the-air waves, including the lowering in power, interference, or building structures affecting the waves.
A little clunky to find stations, but once you find the station you can find it again by making it one of the pre-sets.
Especially good for far-away stations where the signal is just too weak to pick up over-the-air, or for buildings that offer poor radio reception even for stations that are fairly nearby. Also works as well as a normal radio even when reception is good.
This can happen if there is an interruption in power to the radio, by default. If you experience this, it is possible to change a setting on your Reciva account to prevent this from happening (must have your radio added to your Reciva.com account).
- Log into your Reciva account at https://radios.reciva.com/.
- Scroll down and click on Manage My Radios.
- Click on the serial number listed.
- Click in the box next to "Go to standby after powercycle" to show a check mark.
- Click on Update.
- Unplug the power connection from the radio for 15 seconds.
- Plug the power connection back into the radio.
- After radio reconnects to your network a message may show "Updating Settings" and restart. Wait until it finishes.
- To test this, unplug the power connection from the radio for a few seconds.
- Plug the power connection back into the radio.
- Radio will come on and reinitialize and then shut off before playing a station.
It could be one of two reasons:
It's most likely that the website for that particular Internet radio station has changed the URL for that audio stream. When Web sites change their URL, it sometimes takes a while for Reciva to update their database to reflect the new URL. Once Reciva has updated the URL in their database you should have no trouble connecting to that Internet Radio station again. Computers are not affected by the URL change because they get the media players on your computer get the stream directly from the website and are updated automatically. Another factor that may be affecting your audio stream is a recent switch by some radio stations (mostly in the United States) to using Shockwave Flash-embedded players. These players do not use a standard streaming protocol and block external audio players. Many of these embedded players use an algorithm to change the URL of their stream dynamically from once a month to once an hour. The goal of these players is to force you to go to the station's website to view advertisements that help supplement the station's income.
