Polaroid Digital Radio with ipod dock in cream leather look, £60.00, Asda
I was looking for a new digital radio for a while. Like a lot of people, I find getting up in the morning is one of the hardest things EVER, but regularly listening to a breakfast show seems to do the trick. But the radio I had was black and boring.
The most obvious choice that sprung to mind was a digital Robert's radio, you know, the really expensive retro leather jobbies. Whilst I was debating which colour to get, I stumbled across this one in my local Asda Home shop. It has the same retro look of the Roberts radio, but with more modern dials and buttons, and a brilliant pop-out ipod dock, and an aux-in port (so I can link it up to my ipad or macbook as well as my ipod or iPhone... God I have too many apples). Anyway, I made the purchase, and have been very happy with it. The sound quality is brilliant and it looks lovely. It's also light enough to move around without having to think about it, especially as it has a handy hand handle.
