Bush DAB Radio
Advantages: Retro styling, Good quality sound and materials.
Disadvantages: Price may be an issue for some people.
Radio is an age old media transmitter invented many years ago and adored ever since by several generations of music, talk show and world news lovers. Many still believe it be superior to the TV replacement which has become even more popular, successful and influential in recent times. There are still many applications for the radio in today's world, and digitising the analogue set has ensured it lives onto into the future a little longer. Perhaps the main application for the radio is in the car, but portable radios for the home, like this 'BUSH DAB' model remain in high demand.
This device can be purchased for around £45-65 and is a modern example - combining a traditional wooden housing with a chrome front displaying the controls and LCD screen. I like the retro look of the device and feel it fits with most kitchen environments, and similarly with most living room/dining room settings. The handle on top is made from the same metal material as the front section and offers support and stability when lifting the light weight contraption. This is perhaps the only real element to the design which gives the radio its 'portability' as the device requires a wall plug and not batteries to operate.
The display on the LCD screen is crystal clear, allowing you to select from 10 pre-set stations and 10 DAB pre-set stations. Everything is already pre-loaded onto the device which helps less technically minded individuals to operate the device. The machine also has a headphone socket and a utilises a stereo sound speaker when this isn't in use (2x2 Watts RMS). The sound quality from the speaker is excellent, it is as clear as any radio I've encountered, and the sound can be really fill an open space well.
All in all this radio is of excellent quality all round. The materials are high quality and long lasting and the sound you receive from the speakers is great. This is a higher end product and carries a harsh price tag for some purchasers, but it really is worth it if you want to part from the cash.
Summary: A good quality DAB digital radio for the future.
