Philips have ben making radios since way back in the 1920s, and they’re putting all those years of audio experience to good use in the retro-inspired Original Radio series, revealed at IFA 2012 today.
In terms of design, they take their cues from the Philips range of the 1950s, albeit with all the 21st century bells and whistles you’d expect. Available in red, cream and dark wood finishes, they feature chunky aluminium dials and two 10-watt speakers.
Five different models will be available. Alongside the iPhone/iPod docking smarts of the ORD7300, ORD7100C and ORD 7100R, the OR7200 and ORD7300 also squeeze in DAB+ digital radio. The OR7000 keeps things cheaper and simpler with just FM, LW and MW stations.
We’ll bring you pricing and availability details as they are revealed.
