Instructions for Wifi and/or Bluetooth radios.
Welcome to TSF Vintage Radio's Wifi System. Bluetooth system described below.

We are proud to present our wifi speaker system which supports Apple iOS AirPlay & DLNA protocols.

You can enjoy your favourite music (high quality noise free) wirelessly streamed via wifi from your phone, tablet, laptop or PC. Our Wifi system also supports multi-room compatibility.

To setup your wifi radio:

First go to your wifi connection list and select the radio just like you do to connect to your normal home wifi router. Now your computer is connect directly to the radio's wifi transmitter.

The next step gives the radio the password to your home wifi router. Once it has connected to your wifi router it is available to all computers connected to your home wifi.
Once logged on directly to the radio select your normal internet page and type in this Internet address. ' '
Now you will be directed to the radio's wifi setup page. Select 'internet connection'. Turn on wifi access. The radio will now scan for available wifi signals. Select you home's Internet router from the list and type in its password.

The radio's wifi card will now reboot and connect to your home wifi.

Connect your computer back to your home's wifi and you will see the radio is now available on your device.

Our wifi card also rebroadcasts your home's wifi signal extending its range by doing so. The new internet signal is called the name of your radio and does not have a password so the step below for selecting a password is important. You can connect directly to the radio's wifi signal and surf the net as well as using the wifi speaker system.

Adding a password to your radio's wifi signal:

' ' After connecting to the radio's wifi, select 'Basic Settings'. Select the security option your require and enter the password you would like to use. After 30 seconds your radio will be available as before but requiring this new password if you wish to use its wifi signal to surf the net. Please write this password down somewhere secure.

How to play music:

Note: To stream from PC's Mac's or Laptops:
Any software that supports AirPlay or DLNA is able to stream audio to this wifi radio.

To stream music from PC's

1. Go to settings and use the search option to search for 'media'

2. Select the first item found ' Media streaming options'

3. Select the 'the radio ' device from the list and add. This takes a few minutes.

4. Once added the wifi speaker can be selected from iTunes or from windows media player. If using media player there is a button just below the Sync tab that is a rectangle with a green triangle on its top. Select this button and select 'Cast to Device' then select the wifi radio/speaker from the list.
If from iTunes just select the button just to the right of the volume control and select 'the radio' from the list.

To stream music from Android devices:

Any app that supports DLNA streaming is able to transmit audio to this receiver.
We recommend using either BubbleUPNP, SoftMedia Airshare or iMediashare.
For iMediashare initially follow its basic instructions.
Once iMediashare is open select My Music and select the track to play.
A 'Choose a Screen' window will now appear. Just select your radio and audio will now start streaming at the selected volume.

To stream music from Apple devices:

Whilst playing audio on your device swipe upwards to view 'control centre'.
Now select 'AirPlay' and select your wifi radio. Audio will now start streaming.

To use the multi room function we use the App Whaale.
Follow the instructions in this App. If you have other wifi speaker systems you want to stream music to at the same time try the Whaale free trial app to check if its compatible before buying the app.

In this app you can stream music to multiple wifi speakers with different volumes on each or have different music playing in different rooms at different volumes.

Note: The Wifi connection is very reliable and almost never cuts out if within range. In almost all instances where your music momentarily stops it is your internet connection which is not working fast enough at that moment. Normally noticed during peak usage times of day. If the problem persists check if your internet speed can be improved.
