We live in a time where all UK television signals are broadcast digitally, rather than with the high-potential-for-static-interference analogue signals of old. While television has made the big leap into the 21st century, digital radio is still lagging behind it’s century-old predecessor. So instead of managing with FM and AM signals, you should probably upgrade and get yourself a brand spanking new digital radio ready for the inevitable day when the analogue signals get switched off.
1. Best pocket radio: Pure Move 2500, £70
A lot of smartphones comes with FM radios built in, but for some reason they haven’t quite got onto the idea of digital radio just yet. So if you want to listen to digital radio on the go you have to buy a second device, annoyingly. The Pure Move 2500 is a digital radio roughly the same size as an MP3 player, which makes it ideal for carrying around to listen to on the go. It’s got 14 hours of battery life, and can store up to 10 digital and 10 FM stations at any given time. Plus you can control the bass and the treble levels to get your ideal sound quality.
