WIFI Multiroom Vintage Radio
Art deco radio equipped with a 400 W stereo amplifier combined with two adjusted speakers of 200 W each (the original speaker had a power of 3 W). This device is really powerful!
Its WIFI module will allow you to stream audio from music platforms and radio stations with much better sound quality than Bluetooth. Technical possibilities are rapidly evolving and we are dedicated to making our vintage devices effective tools to take advantage of them!

WIFI connectivity also opens up the possibility ofsynchronous wireless streaming to multiple devices (multi-room). If you buy a second device (radio, WIFI record player or WIFI speaker), one could play the left track and the other the right, or one could play your music in the living room and the other in the kitchen.

History of the radio
The Nouvelle Société de Radiophonie S.N.R. (63 rue du Faubourg-Poissonière, Paris IXe) was born in 1935 and produced radios until 1961. Its first models, small and unadorned, were adapted to the context of the crisis of the time, but SNR quickly evolved towards bakelite radios to keep up with the other manufacturers. The competition raged after World War II, and the design team began to search for a signature that would set them apart. New, more modern models, made of metal and inspired by Art Deco, came out of the factories in 1947. The success was very fast.
The Excelsior is an icon of the Art Deco period, and the fact that it was only produced for two years makes it one of the most difficult radios to find.
During the visit of a Soviet diplomat to Paris in 1952, France offered an Excelsior 52 which, when brought back to Moscow, served as a model for a series of exact copies (except for a badge with the hammer and sickle), which were produced until 1955.
We don't know how SNR came from being so successful to shutting down in 1961. If you have any information on this subject, please tell us !
