We featured one combined DAB/MP3 player earlier in the week – the Perstel DR201 – but here’s another to consider before you spend your cash – the Genus SLM.
It’s a bit pricier than the Perstel, but does offer more for the money. This lightweight unit (just 105g) features band III DAB reception, along with FM if you’re in more isolated areas, with 20 presets for each and an OLED display for station information. The MP3 player works with MP3 and WMA files (but not DRM), with storage via SD/MMC cards – so you can theoretically boost your capacity to about 2GB.
The Genus SLM runs via rechargeable battery which can be charged up via USB or mains. A full charge should give you around nine hours playback.
It’s available now, expect to pay around £99.
