Sonoro reveals new range of 'room-sensitive' music systems

Sonoro has announced the launch of a new range of "room-sensitive" music systems, which are designed to offer "functionality customised for specific living environments".

According to the German manufacturer, all four of the products in its new range have been crafted for use in a specific room: the kitchen, bedroom or living room.

Prices start from £129 with the "extremely portable" GoLondon FM/DAB/DAB+ radio (above), which has been made for kitchen use and features controls set back from the base to protect against spills.

To protect the GoLondon unit from moisture and food, Sonoro has made a range of interchangeable, dishwasher-proof sleeves available that can be changed whenever you want.
