Asono DAB1


After the release of their futuristic Play portable music player, it’s just typical that Asono would go all retro on us with the Asono DAB1.

The radio, designed by award-winning company Norways Says into a rather attractive 70s-style casing, has all the features you’d expect from your average portable DAB, plus a few added extras. The DAB1 also operates as an MP3 player as well as a DAB, and with memory card support, you can record and pause live radio. It also features an optional wireless external speaker for true stereo and an impressive sound system developed by Norwegian speaker specialists SEAS. There’s also an RDS FM-receiver if your DAB reception isn’t up to scratch.

Available in black and white, we’ve been told that the DAB1 should hit the UK around April. No price as yet.
