Roberts' Sound 22 DAB radio


I think Roberts and I think retro radio sat in the corner of a kitsch kitchen. I shouldn’t really, because they’re making some pretty decent DAB radios right now, the latest of which is the Sound 22.

Looking not a million miles from a Bose Wave system, the Sound 22 is a table-top FM RDS/DAB digital stereo radio with two long throw loudspeakers to fill a room with a very clear sound. It also features a PausePlus function to put your favourite show on hold for up to 35 minutes. With the addition of a multifunctional alarm, 20 presets and the ability to connect your MP3 player or iPod to the powerful speaker system, it’s certainly worth a look if you’re in the market for a portable player for the home.

You can pick up a Sound 22 for around £200.
