Call me shallow, but I can’t resist a gadget with a nice wood finish. They always sit so well on the Merrow Associates furniture – far better than the white plastic stuff.
The latest candidate for the cash is this Vita Audio R2 DAB radio system. The stylish exterior packs in a DAB (digital) and FM radio, and it can be attached to an MP3 player, CD player or other related gadget for playback through the 20w amplifier. Except of course, that wouldn’t be in wood, so would no longer look hip.
Add to that a clock alarm with sleep and snooze functions and that just about covers it. You can pick one up for around £220.
