British company Monitor Audio is probably best known for its high-quality, hi-fi speakers but here’s a DAB radio which stands out from the crowd – even the PR described it over the phone as the ‘marmite’ of DAB radio. You’ll either love it or hate it.
Dubbed the Airstream 10, it certainly looks interesting, though I’m not sure how practical it would be in the kitchen – kind of looks like it will topple over.
Designed in Britain, the Airstream 10 radio from Monitor Audio not only features DAB it also lets you experience over 15,000 Internet radio stations, global music services and every music file on your home network. It also offers plain ole FM with RDS.
Apparently the design of AirStream 10 is simply not just a case of being different for the sake of it. It’s to allow you to have two different ‘rotational options’ – in other words you can stand it on a shelf, close to a wall, or lay it on a bedside table if you are using it as an alarm clock.
Made of real wood veneer and aluminium, the Airstream 10 is available now for £225.
