Genus Digital is set to launch the VERO-2 – a DAB/FM radio that promises impressive sound quality plus recording and MP3 playback through SD cards.
Genus claims the Vero 2 sets new standards in sound quality for a portable radio. Their G-PRO system uses a patented algorithm and unique speaker configuration (2 x 5 Watts) for a clear acoustic sound. You can tune in via FM and DAB, with 10 station presets for each. There’s a seven day EPG available for DAB, which you can browse by genre, station or day, highlighting programmes you want to record. You can also set up a daily or weekly record of your favourite shows.
Recording is by SD card – record your favourite shows onto the card or use the cards to playback your favourite tracks in MP3 format. You can also pause or rewind live DAB broadcasts – just press the ‘pause’ button to pause or the ‘rewind’ button to rewind. In addition, you can transfer content from your PC to the Vero 2 via a USB cable, which also allows you to upgrade the player’s firmware.
The Genus Vero 2 is avaialble from next month, priced around £119.
