Bristol Sound and Vision 2007 show report

Saturday, 24th February 2007
Radio-now reports from Sound and Vision - The Bristol Show 2007

It has been another exciting year for DAB, with more radios and receivers than ever before hitting the shelves.

Pure Digital's systems and radios were well represented at the show, with their brand new entry level Pure DMX 25 DAB micro system with MP3 playback from SD card and USB stick. Pure were also showing off the recently-announced Pure Evoke 1XT Marshall edition DAB radio.

It was a good opportunity to get your hands on a Pure Legato II DAB lifestyle system featuring EPG and SD card recording and to view the Pure DMX-60 DAB mini system, with EPG and recording capability.

A chance, too, to see the Pure Chronos CD DAB clock alarm and Pure PocketDAB 1500 DAB handheld.

Not forgetting, of course, the palm-sized Pure Move rechargeable DAB/FM radio.

Elsewhere, Ruark offshoot Vitaaudio were displaying their high quality Vita Audio R1 DAB/FM tabletop radio.

Coming soon

Rounding up forthcoming DAB/FM radios and receivers.

In around a month, you'll be able to get your hands on the Genus Type-R DAB radio. Featuring touch sensitive controls, the Type R features twin speakers, is beautifully built with an anodised aluminium case and real walnut end caps and handle underlay, a real leather back panel and charcoal speaker cloth. We'll keep you informed when it hits the retailers in our online shopping guide, plus keep an eye out here for our review - coming soon. Expected price will be GBP150.00.
