Digital radio is making inroads in the US, albeit in the form of satellite radio networks rather than the DAB technology we’re getting used to in the UK.
Eton’s Sound 101 is one of the more stylish examples of satellite radios, with a neat iTwist in the form of an iPod docking station. In other words, you can use it to listen to regular crackly radio, over 120 digital stations courtesy of Sirius, or your iPod.
The device is going on sale shortly, and will cost around $250 in the US. Obviously, we don’t have satellite radio in the UK, but I’d love to see someone produce a DAB equivalent of this. We’d better keep our fingers crossed.
