Digital radio is almost a year old, and it’s starting to gain a bit of momentum, thanks to units that aren’t just big and bulky. Grundig’s latest DAB+ player is even designed to be taken with you.
Dubbed “Roam”, the Grundig radio offers both DAB+ and FM tuners, has 30 station presets (15 for each tuner), a two-line LCD display, 3.5mm headphone jack and an eight hour battery life. It also has a retractable antenna, for those old school moments.
