A Closer Look
The radio comes in three different colours – pink, black and the one we had for review, Orange.
The radio is quite small and is very light so carrying it around won’t be a problem, although you are most likely to use it in a kitchen or bedroom.
It is powered by either the included power adaptor or by batteries.
It has a telescopic aerial for FM radio, with internal aerials for both MW and LW. I found even inside the house I got very good clear reception.
The sound quality is very good, and there is a headphone socket on the side as well for those times when you don’t want to disturb anyone else.
The power and volume is controlled by a dial on the front and there is also a tuning dial, just like old fashioned radios! Tuning in was simple, and gave me a very nostalgic feeling! Yes kids, we used to have to tune things in using dials!
Overall this a great piece of retro kit and would look good in any room.
