There’s no longer any need to wake up to a ring, a nasty buzzer or a slightly off-tune Radio 2 – you can get a better variety of sounds to wake you up with a DAB digital clock radio, like Roberts’ latest DAB – the Gemini 19.
Both in terms of looks and technology, there’s no massive leap here. Roberts has avoided the usual retro styling, going for the standard clock radio. What it does have on a standard clock radio is the DAB functionality, with five DAB presets, along with a designated Classic FM button if you really need easing into the day. There’s also a large/easy to read LCD display, auto time set and if you get nostalgic for your old alarm, there’s also thwe option of being woken up by the good old-fashioned buzzer.
It also operates as a stereo speaker system, should you wish to plug your iPod or Mp3 into it via the auxiliary input socket.
The Roberts Gemini 19 is available now, priced at £80.
