PURE One Elite DAB Radio Review

Tuesday, December 23rd, 2008

The Pure One Elite is a slightly more traditional entrant into our radio review lineup in that it lacks any sort of internet radio capability. If your home doesn’t have a WIFI network then the savings incurred by going with the DAB/FM-only One Elite should surely be welcome. Stylistically the Pure One Elite is clean, […]

Altec Lansing T612 Review

Tuesday, December 23rd, 2008

Amidst the mountain of DAB/WiFi radios we’re covering at the moment, I thought it wise to include a few alternatives. The PURE i10 proved to be an admirable iPod dock, but not so hot for the iPhone 3G. This time I’m looking at a dock that includes room-filling speakers, the very iTouch/iPhone complimentary Altec Lansing […]

Roberts Robi DAB Radio For Your iPod Or iPhone

Tuesday, December 23rd, 2008

Not long after my attention was drawn to the Roberts Radio Robi by a forum post asking about iPhone compatible DAB tuners a review sample has turned up. I popped open the non-welded clamshell packaging of the Robi, unfurled its lengthy cable, hooked it up to my iPhone, said “no” to the annoying dialogue about […]

Sennheiser High Quality In-Ear Phones

Friday, December 19th, 2008

Now that Sennheiser have finished aggressively stomping their competition into oblivion by producing superb headphone products in almost every category imaginable they are free to try some slightly more ambitious projects. First out of the door are the IE 6, IE 7, and IE 8, which have no relation to Internet Explorer. IE, here, stands […]

PURE Evoke Flow Review

Tuesday, December 9th, 2008

A couple of months ago we started rounding up radios of all different shapes, sizes and types to conduct a little bit of a face-off between them and determine the best choices for your kitchen entertainment. My favourite has to be the Pure Evoke Flow if only because of its irrefutable gook looks, which are […]

Roberts MP-43 Sound System Reviewed

Tuesday, December 9th, 2008

Another DAB capable offering from Roberts, the Roberts MP-43 made its way to the desks of Gadgetoid a few months ago and has since obtained a bigger brother in the form of the MP-53 which shares the same form factor and most of the same functionality including a handy iPod dock. This review, however, focusses […]

Roberts SolarDAB Solar Powered DAB Radio

Tuesday, December 9th, 2008

Amongst the absolute wealth of DAB/Internet radios I’ve been looking at in the run up to Christmas, the Roberts SolarDAB still stands out as the most innovative and flexible, even though it’s a ridiculously simple concept. It is far from the best looking DAB radio I’ve ever clapped eyes upon, but it makes up for […]
