Question 2:
What is the difference between a normal radio and an Internet radio?

 

Answer 2:
The main difference is the technology and the amount of content! Compared to an FM tuner, the NOXON receives radio streams through the Internet. The streams often include more information such as text information, for example what is currently played (). Because the data is streamed through the Internet, the NOXON does not depend on any transmitter meaning it is not restricted to any specific areas. The radio receives radio stations from all over the world! That is why a large amount of streams is available.
