Tivoli Model DAB

By focusing on a radio's core features, Tivoli has, in the Model DAB, produced a device that sounds great and is a joy to use. It's effortlessly stylish, and the buttons, switches and dials are a tactile delight. It isn't cheap, but this is a quality radio that could well outlast your local station's licence

Dualit DAB Kitchen Radio

What a fantastic accomplishment! In these days of conspicuous consumption, the Dualit DAB Kitchen Radio is the Humvee of digital radios. It may not brim with features, but you could drop it off a cliff and it would still be home in time for tea

Cowon iAudio D2 DMB (DAB)

This upgraded version of the iAudio D2 is a fantastic player with the most sophisticated feature set we've ever seen in an MP3 player, and amazing sound quality to boot. Beginners to portable tech may struggle with the complex menu system though

XFM's foray into DAB radios doesn't offer professional audio quality, but it's a passable stereo clock radio for people who want to wake up to a DAB broadcast

Roberts solarDAB

In the small, light and highly portable solarDAB, Roberts has achieved a good combination of smart energy collection, practical design and appealing looks. It's not without its faults -- chiefly its weak speaker and lack of FM tuner -- but, for gardeners and campers, it's a great choice

LG FA163DAB

Overall this system is okay to use, with good radio offerings, seamless integration with iPods and, for the most part, good sound quality. For pop, jazz, vocals and electronic music, it's a sound offering for £200, despite its questionable construction and average screen

PURE Digital PocketDAB 1500

Pocket radios always struggle against the propensity of DAB signals to cut out completely at the slightest hint of interference. The PocketDAB 1500 does a sterling job, but sometimes the laws of physics are just too much for it to overcome

Denon TU-1800DAB

The range of stations on offer to DAB listeners and the minimal interference with a good aerial makes the format superior to FM, however those expecting anything near CD quality will be disappointed. Luckily the TU-1800DAB is future-proof and will be able to recieve higher bit rate broadcasts when, or if, they become available. Nonetheless it's one of the best tuners we've heard. If you love radio, you'll love this

PURE Digital PocketDAB 2000

It's pocket-sized, but only just. Nevertheless this is an impressive portable radio that delivers excellent tone and dynamics, provided you're in an area of good reception. The limitations of analogue radios are also present here -- if you're in a wide open space, everything sounds great, but in a tunnel or even in a thick-walled building, you'll lose reception, and sometimes your patience
