I’m a big fan of DAB – more music choice and better sound quality. Some look stylish, others look like they’ve been designed by technicians. You certainly can’t say that about the latter about Intempo’s PP-01 – the DAB radio for readers of lifestyle magazines.
In truth, it’s actually quite striking. Featuring flat panel NXT stereo speakers, the PP-01 has slimmed down to not much more than a photo frame’s width. Which means you can use it as one – as Intempo has got together with mybiggerpicture.com to offer personalised speaker covers for the unit. or if you’re not feeling all that creative, you can choose from some ready-made pop-on covers.
But let’s not forget this is a radio too – the NXT speakers offer 2 x 2W of power, there’s a chocie of DAB band III or FM (RDS) radio with a total of 12 presets and the rechargeable battery pack offers up to 20 hours use on a full charge. You can also use it as a speaker system for your iPod or portable player via a 3.5mm stereo line-in jack.
The Intempo PP-01, along with a selection of covers, is available now, priced around £100.
