Unlike a few people around here I can’t really see the appeal of digital radios. Surely it makes more sense to use PCs, laptops, and devices to access internet radio which offers about a million more stations than DAB? Or even take advantage of the fancy new Sky Gnome. But it seems I am in the minority for DAB radios are still coming thick and fast.
The latest to arrive is the Gemini 20 DAB digital radio from that good old British stalwart Roberts Radio. It claims the model matches a contemporary styled portable radio with all the benefits of today’s DAB technology. This means loads of new channels including BBC6, BBC7, Five Live Extra and the Shiny girls’ favourite the awesome Planet Rock.
If you miss the crackle of analogue transmissions then the 20 will also tune into FM stations. You can buy one now for £90.
