New talking DAB Digital Radio ready to hit the shops

DAB digital radio aims to simplify radio tuning, for example letting you tune by station name rather than frequency. Now a manufacturer has gone one step further with the introduction of a radio that ‘speaks’ the station name, the time and more?

Manufacturer PURE Digital has just announced the launch of the SONUS-1XT, which will be arriving in stores from the end of February 05.

Similar in style terms to the best selling Evoke-1, the SONUS makes digital radio even more accessible with its voice feedback technology. As you scroll through the available stations, the radio will speak the name of each one, so you can be sure of what you?re tuning to without even glancing at the display. And with comprehensive alarm and clock features, the SONUS can also speak the current time (which automatically gets adjusted and updated) and confirm whether or not you?ve set any alarms.

Another useful feature is the ‘Volume Equalisation Technology’. Developed because there can be a difference in volume from one radio station to another, the SONUS automatically subtly adjusts the volume to ensure that you won?t need to keep reaching for the volume control.

The SONUS will be on sale at around ?119, and we?re told that it won?t be long before you can choose the voice that speaks to you!
