Powerful wOOx speakers

Advantages: Beautiful sound with excellent speakers, especially the wOOx speaker which gives it that extra power
Disadvantages: No tape player

A good quality DAB/FM radio for those on the go

Advantages: Can receive FM broadcasts as well as DAB
Disadvantages: No belt clip, but light enough to carry in shirt pocket

DAB Radio is said to be the future of radio broadcasting, but for a personal Walkman style radio FM offers more "availability". For example, I live outside Glasgow city centre, and DAB reception is good. However, on a bus or walking around the city ce ...

Says it on the tin - Boom in a box!

Advantages: style and convenience
Disadvantages: no alarm/remote
