  1. Tangent DAB Table Radio review

    Tangent DAB Table Radio review

    8  

    The Scandinavian-style smooth-edged false wood veneer and tuning dials that echo old analogue radios immediately flag up this DAB radio offering from Tangent as one with style in mind.

    Denon D-F102DAB review

    10  

    Digital Radio is becoming increasingly important in hi-fi - see the likes of products like the Arcam DT91. But now - thanks to Denon - Digital Radio and the mini system have suddenly become an item, with products like the D-F102DAB system.

    Sony XDR-M1 review

    8  

    Sony's neat XDR-M1 DAB radio also manages to cram in an FM radio too, so you get the best of both worlds, which is useful if you happen to be outside a DAB broadcast area.

    Pure Elan RV40 review

    7  

    It may produce some benchmark DAB radios, but Pure Digital's latest isn't one of them. Take one of Pure Digital's DAB radios in its 'Evoke' range and it's hard to find fault: meaty sound combined with both stylish good looks...

    Philips AJ5100 DAB review

    8  

    For its debut DAB radio, Philips has taken a laid-back approach - literally. The sleek black body with chrome surround handle reclines to present its wares, but as we'll find out, there's not too much to get excited about.

    Panasonic RF-D3 review

    7  

    Despite its attractive price, this debut DAB is a lightweight option in many ways, and is only suited to a small kitchen. Branching into the world of DAB radio, Panasonic has aimed squarely for the bottom end of the market...

    Pure Chronos review

    10  

    This DAB radio has been around for a while, but Pure does it again inthe style stakes. Although we've a soft spot for the retro-elegance of the Tangent, the Chronos's sleek lines and unusual triangular shape make this radio easy on the eye

    Panasonic RF-D3 review

    On board is a DAB tuner with FM mode for back-up, with just a headphone jack and an analogue line-out for company. That's a pretty basic roster of features and connectivity, giving nothing along the lines of pausing, rewinding...

    Sky Gnome review

    8  

    The trouble with satellite radio is you can't carry it around with you - the dish sees to that. However, the Sky Gnome allows the next best thing. While the satellite receiver stays in one place, the Gnome system transmits the audio, to a radio player.

    Pure Bug Too review

    Pure Bug Too review

    8  

    This second-generation DAB from Pure now looks more like a toy than a radio to us, but the Bug Too is feature packed. Apart from a built-in SD card slot, ReVu is also included.

    Panasonic RF-D3 review

    7  

    At only £60, Panasonic's new DAB radio is among the cheapest around - and it shows in the rather flimsy casing. On board is a DAB tuner with FM mode for back-up, with just a headphone jack and an analogue line-out for company.

    Digital radios usually fall into one of two categories: so far, none have been both stylish and heavy on features. Given the extra features that have appeared on DAB radios of late

    Rega Radio 3 review

    Externally, it's absolutely Rega - the design and construction being quite distinct from anything made by other brands

    Pure DRX-702ES review

    8  

    The Pure is one of the early DAB/FM models. But how does it stack upagainst what's currently on the market? The price has come down a fairchunk and the unit remains competitive on a specs/price basis at least.

    Kaon KVR1000DAB review

    8  

    This is unusual for a twin-tuner PVR in that it has three tuners. The KVR1000DAB has twin satellite tuners and a digital audio broadcasting (DAB radio) tuner (although the DAB tuner is not very sensitive)

    The box is a fully-fledged internet radio that'sfully compatible with MP3, WMA and Real content streamed via listings from Reciva. It's fully independent; there's no USB connection or software, while it'll also stream audio from your Mac or PC

    Sky Gnome review

    The next big thing in TV (after HD, that is) has to be portability - TV on the move and TV around the home.You can get something of the flavour of this with Sky's Gnome: it gives you TV sound to carry about the house

    Imagination Technologies, the company behind Pure Digital, actually designs and manufactures DAB radio chipsets and its hi-fi DAB tuners have been bagging awards pretty much constantly for the last three years

    Cambridge Audio Azur 640T review

    10  

    Cambridge's Azur range of components has been hitting a fine mix of performance, style and value and the Azur 640T DAB/FM tuner is no exception. For a penny less than £200 you get a very solidly build hi-fi component that looks twice its price

    Acoustic Solutions SP111 review

    10  

    At half the price of even the budget Cambridge Azur 640T you wouldn't expect too much from a separate DAB/FM tuner, would you? You wouldn't expect the weighty case, metal fascia with neat textured paint and crystal clear LCD display

    Pure Digital has the credit for fuelling the digital radio revolution, but now everyone's jumping on the bandwagon - Panasonic, Roberts and Philips have all released kitchen sink DAB radios in the last year, and now Sony has joined the throng
