Alba's retro-styled DAB for under £40


I’m a sucker for anything with a ‘retro’ look – and this Alba TRDAB2822 DAB radio, with its wood-effect sides and old-style transistor radio front panel, would certainly sit well on my vintage Danish sideboard.

As a DAB, it’s fairly basic, featuring DAB and FM reception, each with 10 presets. A small LCD display with blue backlight will offer up station information and double up as a clock with an alarm function. There’s 2 x 0.8W RMS speaker output and the radio is operated via battery or mains.

It’s a nice-looking, no-thrills DAB, which also comes with a no-thrills price – just £39.99.
