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.

I got this radio with home delivery. Using my home WiFi, I was able to setup the radio configuration in less than 15 minutes. I recommend you have yur WiFi's network key handy, so the radio can join the WiFi network. Sounds good as well. Overall, much smaller in size than I thought, but bot an issue. Recommended.
Ease of setup, good, bright display.
General radio listening.

This is a replacement for older one, which I loved. This one is updated. I live in a dead area and receiving local stations is great but to be able to get stations from all over the world is fantastic! I love my CC WiFi internet radio!

This little radio is terrific for brining internet radio stations into your home or office. Until the display goes dark. At least it still plays although now I cannot change the station which makes it moderately useful.
Great sound, presets, holds memory in case of power outage, has presets, utilizes Reciva.com
Display has died on 2 of my 3 units with no sympathy from CCrane.
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.
The message "Stream Ended" could mean a few different things:
- The radio lost the WiFi connection between the radio and the router. A power cycle normally forces the radio and the router to reconnect. If this is an ongoing occurrence, please contact us.
- The station had an interruption with their stream, or the station's network has such a high amount of people connecting to the stream that it drops connection.
- If listening to Pandora, this can occur when it is unable to find the next song that matches the criteria that you selected (doesn't happen a lot but can happen).
