We are sorry, but Reciva's software is 15 years old and will soon not work anymore. There is no path to upgrade due to the age of the code and the incompatibility with new hardware. In addition, there are no longer people who fundamentally understand the ins-and-outs of this proprietary code and programming. We have exhausted all possibilities along these lines. This is the nature of all software and hardware, at some point it reaches End-Of-Life and is obsolete.
We know how important Internet radio is to our customers. We have completed a new radio called the CC WiFi-3. It uses a new third-party stream provider called Skytune. We have already received the first small production run and placed the first larger order. Existing owners of our CC WiFi must be served first. We are hoping the first shipment will be here late June. We should have another shipment about August. Additional shipments will be placed as demand is determined.
About the CC WiFi-3
We think the CC WiFi-3 is a remarkable radio for listening to a clear signal from your favorite station and for discovering new stations. You can go to Skytune.net, click on the "Radio" header and check to see that they carry your favorite station or host.
This is a one-time offer from C. Crane. This offer will end August 31, 2021.
- If you have purchased a CC WiFi and it is under the 1 year limited warranty, contact us for the available options.
- If you have purchased a CC WiFi and it is no longer under warranty, the CC WiFi-3 is available for half price - $60.00 USD plus shipping. You must fill out the form (click here) and include a picture of your serial number(s). Instructions are included on the form for how to locate your serial number. If you need help with this, please contact us. You will be contacted once we receive our shipment to get payment information and to confirm your address.
- For all owners of all Reciva-based WiFi radios: It will help us greatly if you contact us and let us know you are interested in the CC WiFi-3. We will place you on a waiting list for when we have stock, after we have serviced the existing CC WiFi owners. The CC WiFi-3 will be available to all of those who contact us by August 31st, for a price of $99.99 plus shipping.
The CC WiFi-3 comes with the risk of losing connection to Skytune's server if they were to shut down in the future. As we have previously documented in our catalog and on the web: C. Crane has no control over content or the stream provider for Internet radios and cannot be responsible for Internet radio programs or availability.
