Roberts' Sound 39 DAB radio


Well, so far this week we’ve had a retro DAB from Alba, a DAB for the fashion-conscious from Dualit and now we have the Sound 39 DAB radio from Roberts – which avoids most of the gimmicks and concentrates on the sound.

The FM RDS/DAB radio’s twin speakers boost the sound of the digital broadcasts without distortion at high volumes. The Sound 39 also features PausePlus to pause and rewind programmes – it continually works in the background, storing up to 35 minutes of the last station listened to.

There are 10 station presets, 5 alarms and timers, a sleep button, auto display dimmer, remote control and an auxiliary input if you want to put your portable player through the speaker system.

The Sound 39 retails for around £120.
