DAB / DAB Plus Radio Reception

Digital DAB radio and DAB+ are fast becoming the best way to access radio in the UK and Europe. This technology allows you to receive stations with better quality and reliability than FM. DAB also has less interference as channels are broadcast in groups which are received in their entirety!

Save Favourites and Access With a Single Press

Access more stations, including many independent radio stations. Up to 20 DAB stations can be stored as favourites for quick-access on the set, including 4 with ultra-fast button access from the top of the device. Changing between your 4 favourites throughout the day to catch regular news, shows and segments is easier than ever.

With built-in DAB and FM, you can access a wide array of stations for your personal preference. Make use of the 40 pre-sets for easy navigation through your favourite stations. Let this retro portable Radio become a part of your routine.

Classic FM Radio Reception

Listen to Classic FM radio stations on this retro radio. Up to 20 FM stations can be stored on the device, 4 of which can be accessed very quickly just like DAB.

You can manually tune through FM frequencies to find new stations and discover local radio, or simply hold the up / down button to begin auto-scanning to the next available station, saving you time.

Portable Rechargeable Radio

Listen to the radio for hours without recharging. The internal battery gives you up to 25 hours of listening time. When empty, recharge it with the micro-USB cable supplied in the box and any powered USB port.

No need for batteries. From morning to night, in the office, while working, while doing DIY, in the kitchen or in a car, this small portable DAB radio will accompany you throughout the day wherever you go.

Personal Radio Alarm Clock

Wake up to your favourite station and programme. Whether it's a presenter who really vibes with you or music that gets you motivated, listen to your favourite FM or DAB radio stations as soon as you wake up!

Dual Alarm clock functionality allows one alarm for the week, another for the weekend. Make your schedule easier to manage and maybe wake up with some different music at the weekends! Fall asleep to music with the programmable auto power-off function.

Prune and DRC Functions

Prune is a feature that deletes stations that are no longer transmitting or have moved frequency. These are marked with a '?'. Ordinarily, when you do a full scan, a radio will add new stations while old stations are not deleted. Now, Prune function ensures that this dead air is actually removed! Enjoy digital radio more easily than ever by pruning low-signal stations.

A Factory Reset clears the memory entirely and scans again for all available stations.

Dynamic Range Compression (DRC) is a feature that reduces the volume of louder sounds and boosts the volume of quieter sounds. We recommended this when listening to audio at lower volumes especially in variable environments like camping or in a car.
