Help?
The 2XS website should display correctly on most devices (mobiles, tablets and computers), most platforms (Windows, Android, Mac, iOS, Linux) and most browsers (Chrome, Firefox, IE, Safari, etc). If the images or text don't display properly, you probably need to update your browser to one which renders HMTL5 websites correctly. On home PCs, etc, we recommend Chrome, Google's version is available here, but there are other generic versions, too. Firefox is equally good, and many prefer it because of its greater respect for user privacy. On Android mobiles, use Firefox or Chrome (with reservations, see below).

How To Listen...
On the move (train, bus, car):
Using your smartphone or other device, you can listen via this website, which automatically becomes a Mobile-friendly page on phones and tablets. We recommended Firefox as it has always allowed radio2XS (or any other audio) to continue playing if the window becomes 'unfocussed' (ie, another browser window is open, or another app is being used). Chrome stopped this in 2016, although they have now reinstated it. Then, use the link in the browser menu to <Add To Home Screen> (or similar) so you can easily tune-in again next time. Although our audio stream uses far less data than browsing YouTube, etc, it's best to make sure your mobile package includes at least 1Gb/month data.

At home with an Internet Radio:

If you have Broadband and WiFi, you can listen to 2XS without using your PC, just like with FM (or DAB, which just sounds awful). The Roberts Stream 217 is an excellent all-rounder, with coverage of all bands: Internet, FM & DAB, but there are many others. Be aware of devices branded as 'digital radio' as they often only have the dreaded DAB - make sure it also has 'Internet Radio'.


At home with a PC/Mac:

Just listen with the 'Play' link at the top of this page. If you prefer, you can also use standalone players like MusicBee, VLC, iTunes, Foobar2000, Windows Media, etc, by selecting the link below. Save for future listening by right-clicking and choosing <Save link as>. On Macs, we're also in iTunes.

Don't forget to connect the audio output of your device to your stereo system to hear us in superb near-cd quality (you'll probably need a "3.5mm minijack-to-phono (RCA)" cable).
