Tivoli's new Model 10+ is wasted on the general public; for here's a small radio for the audiophile
ExclusiveFollowing our lengthy interview with Pure Digital earlier this month, TechRadar polled a number of manufacturers and radio industry execs to find out more about the state of play with DAB, DAB+ and the move to internet radio.
One of the joys of radio used to be listening to stations from distant countries. Using Long Wave or Short Wave, plus a carefully optimised antenna and a lot of patience, one could 'pull in' broadcasts from all over Europe and even further afield. But many of those stations no longer broadcast and both Long and Short waves have disappeared from practically all tuners that are destined for inclusion in hi-fi.
