    What We Think
    Manufacturer Como Audio may be relatively new to the DAB radio market, but they bring years of experience to the table, having been launched by the original founder of Tivoli. The Como Audio Solo really shows that the company know their audio equipment, with a powerful 30W amplifier providing impressively dynamic sound that comfortably fills medium-sized rooms.

  • 4. Ruark R1 MK3 Deluxe DAB Bluetooth Radio in Walnut
    Product Features
    • The Aston Martin of DAB radios - THE SUNDAY TELEGRAPH
    • Ruark Audio 75mm high-fidelity drive unit
    • DAB, DAB+ and FM Tuner with RDS
    • Built-in quality Bluetooth audio receiver
    • Intuitive click to select RotoDial control system
    Editors Rating 90/100
    What We Think
    Ruark spent decades in the high-end speakers market before making the switch to DAB radios. By taking all that experience and distilling it into a compact case, they’ve created possibly the best-sounding radio on the market today. It may not have the looks of Revo’s models, but we were blown away by the audio quality when we tested out the R1 for ourselves. The bass, mid, and treble frequencies are all crisp and clean, helping the radio to work brilliantly with any music you might throw at it. And while it doesn’t have internet connectivity, you can easily hook up your phone via the Bluetooth mode to really open up your listening options. Ruark’s trademark “RotoDial” control setup is quite literally the cherry on top, making the whole unit extremely simple to use.

    Editors Rating 90/100
    What We Think
    If you’re looking for a very high-end DAB radio- and you’ve got the cash to splash on one- then we wholeheartedly recommend the Revo SuperCD. As an all-in-one music centre, it simply can’t be beaten. Like the name suggests, it comes with a built-in CD player. For those who really care about audio quality, this is perhaps the single most important feature, since CD sound is so much clearer than MP3s. The dual built-in speakers also give you full stereo sound without the need for an extra unit, so the SuperCD really is all you need!

    What We Think
    The Panasonic RF-D10EB-K offers excellent value for money and is one of our top choices if you're looking for a decent Portable DAB Radio at a modest price. It’s extremely simple to use, and the speaker inside is surprisingly hefty. That gives it a nice solid sound across all volume settings. If you want to tweak the audio to your liking, then there are 5 EQ presets to choose from. One nice feature on the RF-D10EB-K is the set of preset buttons on the top of the unit.

  • 7. Como Audio Duetto DAB+/FM Radio with Internet Radio & Multi-Room Functionality in Walnut
    Product Features
    • Twin 30W RMS speakers for powerful stereo sound
    • Enormous range of connectivity options
    • Eye-catching Italian-inspired retro design
    • aptX Bluetooth connectivity for lossless streaming
    • Ideal for multiroom listening
    Editors Rating 86/100
    What We Think
    As the next step up from the Como Audio Solo, the Como Duetto is a great mid-range model. Although it’s a fairly pricey model when compared to other DAB radios like the Revo SuperConnect, you do get a lot of bang for your buck. In terms of features, it comes with aptX Bluetooth that allows for HD sound streaming with compatible devices, as well as a wide range of other connectivity options including Spotify Connect. That high-quality audio is provided by the twin speaker setup, which offers double the power of the Solo. Whether you’re unwinding with some quiet tunes in your living room or getting the party started, the Como Duetto never sounds less than pitch-perfect.

  • 8. Como Audio Musica DAB+/FM Radio with Internet Radio & CD Player in Walnut
    Product Features
    • Enormous range of listening options, including DAB+, FM, and internet radio
    • Built-in CD player
    • aptX Bluetooth connectivity for lossless streaming
    • Includes 8 station presets
    • Stylish Italian-inspired design
    Editors Rating 86/100
    What We Think
    At first glance, it seems like the only difference between the Como Audio Musica and its smaller sibling the Duetto is the addition of a CD drive. In fact, though, there are a number of small but significant tweaks which help to take the R4 up a gear. For a start, there’s the addition of internet radio, allowing you to listen to your choice of over 30,000 online stations from across the globe. Meanwhile, underneath the casing, the Como Musica is packed with some seriously sophisticated tech. Como have developed their own unique components and put them to use perfectly in the Musica- including custom long-throw woofers for powerful bass frequencies. It may be relatively compact, but the Musica more than holds its own even against jumbo-sized speakers.
    Product Features
    • Enormous range of listening options, including DAB+, FM, and internet radio

  • 9. Pure Avalon N5 DAB Radio in Pearl Grey
    Product Features
    • Beautiful wool casing
    • Small body, powerful sound
    • DAB+ compatibility
    • Easy-to-use controls
    • Bluetooth connectivity
    Editors Rating 85/100
    What We Think
    A wooden case is something of a trademark for Pure, but their Avalon range takes a very different approach to design. They’ve dropped the box-like look of the Evoke, and instead gone for something more akin to the Panasonic RF-D10EB-K. The slimline design is then wrapped in a gorgeous woven wool for a finish that’s subtle yet stylish. Even though it’s more compact than the Evoke range, it still provides a nice rich sound across both DAB radio and a Bluetooth connection. Making smart use of a small footprint, that design approach even extends to the unique pop button- both an on/off switch and volume control in one neat little package.

  • 10. Pure Evoke H3 DAB Radio
    Product Features
    • Real wood casing
    • DAB+ compatibility
    • Powerful sound profile
    • Bluetooth connectivity
    • 40 station preset options
    Editors Rating 84/100
    What We Think
    One of the more affordable DAB radios in our range, the Pure Evoke H3 boasts a sleek, modern design. With a real wood casing, the Evoke H3 has surprisingly strong acoustics for a small speaker. The audio sounds a lot more natural as a result, and it’s also a pleasing aesthetic touch. Pure have taken a leaf out of Ruark’s book when it comes to controls. Everything you need is right there on the top of the unit, leaving the front panel clear and uncluttered. Even better, the full-colour screen helps to make this digital radio even easier to use. Finally, the Evoke H3 even comes with a whopping 40 preset options. If you always find yourself flicking around the dial, this could be the option for you!
