This website is now a 'Progressive Web App' (PWA) which means that if you are using an up-to-date browser you can save / install / download the site and it will act like an App on most PCs and mobiles. To do this, look at the browser's menu (or the three dots at the top, depending on the version) and find an option like 'Install', 'Save as an App', or 'Save to home screen'. 2XS Radio will then be downloaded to your device and will operate just like an App. As far as which browser to use is concerned, well Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, Vivaldi, Opera, Yandex, Epic, Brave, etc (but not Firefox or Safari) are all variants of the open-source Chromium project, so there's not much to choose between them. They also all work well on Android mobiles.

On Home or On The Move (car, bus, train)

As above, using your smartphone or other device, you can listen via this website, which automatically becomes a mobile-friendly App on phones and tablets. Clicking the play arrow at the top takes you straight to our output. The audio quality is very high, and much better than many stations. Audio streams only use a modest amount of data, but do ensure your mobile package includes enough (as long as you have at least a few gb per month, you'll have no problems). In the car, plug the audio into the auxiliary socket and you'll be impressed by our sound quality: it's much better than DAB radio stations.

At home with an Internet Radio

If you have broadband and WiFi, you can listen to 2XS with an Internet Radio, just as you would with FM or DAB. There are loads of excellent all-rounders with coverage of all bands and we used to recommend the Roberts 'Stream 94i', but we've had a lot of unreliability with ours. The Pure 'Evoke' is cheaper - and more reliable. Be wary of devices branded as 'digital radio' as they often only have DAB - make sure it says 'Internet Radio'. DAB audio quality is generally awful - and many music stations are in mono!

Our broadcasts are available as 'secure streams' and although most databases are up-to-date, if we are missing, you might need to switch off your radio at the power supply, wait a few seconds, power it on again and then refresh the station list. If this doesn't work, visit the manufacter's website and ask them to update our details, as below:

Secure 'SSL' stream
Non-secure stream

If your radio allows you to add a station of your own, add us as '2XS Radio' and enter one of those as the 'stream URL', depending on which your radio system prefers.

At home with a PC

Just listen with the arrow at the top of this page but don't forget to connect the audio output of your PC, etc, to your stereo system to hear us in superb near-CD quality. You'll probably need a "3.5mm mini-jack to phono/RCA" cable for home use.

What about aggregated radio listening sites?

We have managed to get Tune-In to remove us - after a battle - as they were inserting ads into our output. There are plenty of others, but they are all 'pariah' sites which sell music from our output without paying any commission. If you can, it's kinder to us to listen here or on an internet radio.
