Time to wake up with the ChronoDAB

Small on your bedside table, but large on features, the ChronoDAB is the latest in a number of new clock radios from Roberts.

Rather than scrabbling through menus, Roberts has given each of the two separate alarms a slider switch to activate them. Each alarm can be set to combinations of weekday, weekend or daily settings. There's a "once-only" setting, too, for special occasions such as Christmas, where you might want to rise at three in the morning.

Three selectable brightness settings ensure your room isn't doused in unwanted light from the display and, of course, snooze and sleep settings are on hand, too. You can wake to DAB, FM radio or a buzzer sound.

With dimensions of 230mm(w) x 110mm(h) x 75mm(d), the ChronoDAB is also fitted with a headphone socket to avoid disturbing those around you. At this size, the ChronoDAB won't shake the room, but it still has a veritable 1 Watt of music power to wake even the most hardened sleepers.

ChronoDAB is available to buy now at under £70 - check the left-hand column for where to get one.
