    Zicplay EWOO review

    This beautiful work of craftsmanship is a brave attempt at a fully functioning iPod remote with its own audio/video docking bay. It caught our attention because similar products are few and far between

    Roberts Gemini CRD29 review

    7  

    Radio 4 has just started on the headlines. You reach across the bed and slap the huge snooze button on the radio. Peace at last. Not so with Roberts' Gemini CRD29, which lacks the simple design that a lot of competitors base their models around

    Sandisk Sansa e280 review

    Sandisk Sansa e280 review

    10  

    The Sansa range has been a favourite of a few of our staff, and the addition of an 8GB edition for the same price as a 4GB Nano is extremely welcome. Obviously it's not as slim as Apple's effort

    Sony Walkman NW-A800 2GB review

    8  

    At last, a sign that Sony is recovering from the insanity that has gripped it over the last few years. This flash-based Walkman has, counter to recent tradition, both a pleasantly usable interface and decent desktop software.

    Belkin Clear Acrylic iPod case review

    9  

    The latest case from Belkin is for fifth-generation video iPods, and it will cover your iPod in a sophisticated combination of brushed metal and acrylic that creates a near bullet-proof jacket for your beloved player.

    Pure PocketDAB1500 review

    8  

    Pure Digital's version of the portable DAB manages to be bigger and better than many rivals, this despite the fact that it doesn't allow MP3 playback. Pure Digital does make a unit featuring MP3 functionality, but it's bulkier and pricier than this option

    Roberts Gemini Virgin RD-49 review

    8  

    Following Pure Digital's One's dabble with a TalkSPORT branded digital radio comes Roberts' flirtations with both Virgin Radio and Classic FM (the Gemini RD-49 is available with both stations' branding)

    Ministry of Sound MOSMP075 review

    8  

    Prices for DAB radios for kitchens and bedrooms have dropped as quality has increased over the last year, the same isn't true for portable devices. Finding a reasonably small, effective and good value portable DAB radio is nigh-on impossible

    Roberts Rambler RD76 review

    9  

    While Intempo has sought the attentions of a new generation of radio listeners with its gaudy KTM-02, Roberts has been a little more conservative with its 'Rambler'. So much so that it looks like a museum piece

    Revo Uno review

    Revo Uno review

    8  

    In many ways Revo's Uno DAB radio is a lightweight version of Vita Audio's product. Besides its shocking pink fascia and black speaker and panels, the Uno displays the same upright design with controls built over a lower mono speaker

    Plusdeck2c PC Cassette Deck review

    7  

    The sun has set on the cassette format and countless tapes now languish in the twilight of dusty storage boxes. The Plusdeck2c is your chance to rediscover your old music and let it bask in the bright rays of the digital age

    Intempo KTM-02 review

    7  

    While we have got used to the little black boxes that so often enclose today's top tech, we're not averse to something completely different. A shame, then, that the effect of flowers crawling over this radio's bright blue body is, frankly, hideous

    SonicGear 2GO I-200 review

    8  

    With the rise and rise of MP3 players, portable speakers have undergone something of a renaissance in recent years. And things have certainly evolved since the days when you bought a pair of crappy flyweight Bush speakers for your Sony Walkman

    Shieldzone Full-body Shield review

    This 'invisible shield' is apparently made from the same material that the military uses to protect helicopters. James Ellerbeck thinks this is a bit excessive for an iPod...

    Kensington RDS FM review

    10  

    This is a top-end FM transmitter that should appeal to anyone who wants to broadcast their iPod to a car radio. Features a high signal strength and RDS transmission for compatible radio.

    Burning Love Pod Pouch review

    8  

    Well, it makes a change from leather. Burning Love has decided that the best way to keep your iPod safe is in a furry posing pouch that wouldn't look out of place keeping your winky warm on a winter's evening.

    XtremeMac MicroFlex Car For Nano review

    7  

    Now that iPod FM tansmitters are widespread in the UK - and given that this cradle is compatible with XtremeMac's own AirPlay - this in-car nano holder should appeal to many of the iPod-toting public.

    Denon's always near the top of the tuner tree. Now it bears DAB fruit

    Audica MPS-1 review

    8  

    An amp and speakers in a box less than one foot long each way? Sounds cheap. Sounds nasty. But don't be hasty. Yes, this is aimed at the iPod generation, but after all you can connect a 'real' CD player or radio with an adapter lead

    Roku Soundbridge Radio review

    The Roku SoundBridge Radio draws on the technology that did so well in the heart of Soundbridge M1000 and slides into a standalone unit.

    Roberts Gemini RD-22 review

    9  

    Here's another take on the 'getting the design wrong' look: the Gemini RD-22 looks far too much like a clock radio. But, with excellent sound, the mains operation-only Gemini belies its old fashioned silver front with a quality wood build.

    Pure Digital ONE review

    Imagine if Apple released a budget version of its iPod that was made of black shiny plastic that didn't have a clickwheel - and cost only £50. That may not be Apple's style, but that's the approach Pure Digital has taken...

    It may be frumpy-looking, but this model from Genus is equipped with anSD card and can play MP3s, podcasts or recorded material from the DABtuner. Paired with a computer, an SD card reader for that computer and a home cinema system, we're talking...

    Options for high quality portable sound recording devices that offer flexible recording formats and quick editing are relatively few, but here's one option - the Edirol R-09.
