We don’t like to boast, but when it comes to digital radio, we truly believe we’ve got it covered. We do however, understand that you shouldn’t just take our word for it, so when we saw What Hi Fi’s recent article on the Best DAB digital radios to buy in 2014 we wanted to share its findings.
Okay, so the truth is we wanted to show off, but for good reason. Pure features as the ‘Best Buy’ in six out of the twelve categories, which we think is pretty good.
So, whether you are in the market for a portable radio, clock radio, or in-car DAB radio, we really do have the perfect solution to suit. Not only this but they all come with three years warranty and are digital tick approved, for that added peace of mind.
We’ve put below a few of our own suggestions for four of the categories, either an updated model or something new to consider:
Best pocket DAB radio - Move 2500
A compact, light DAB digital and FM radio, Move 2500 is ideal if you love radio on the move.
Move 2500 is available in a choice of brushed silver aluminium casework, or black aluminium fascia with mirror finish back, and sounds fantastic thanks to its separate bass and treble controls and high-quality in-ear, noise-isolating headphones.
