NEWS: Eton Sound promises better DAB reception

The quality of DAB reception has been a long-running matter of debate on our Forums, and now US company Eton Sound says it's addressing the problem with its new 102 DAB/FM clock radio.

It features a high-sensitivity digital Phased-Locked Loop tuner (PLL) that is said to improve DAB reception, even in problem areas. The dual-band DAB tuner can receive Band III and Band L broadcasts, and there's an FM tuner as backup.

Other niceties include an iPod dock, 3-inch speaker, a clock radio with alarm and sleep timer and a remote control.

The Eton Sound 102 costs £140 and comes in white, black and silver.
