The DPR-99 portable radio is designed for AM listening audiences, especially those who appreciate their football and cricket broadcasts or listening to the ABC. FM lovers will also notice the superior sound quality.
Finally, the WFR-1D table top model has been designed to become the family radio hub, receiving digital and FM radio, as well as offering access to stations around the world via internet radio. It also has the ability to stream your own music selections stored on your personal computer. The unit replaces the old AM/FM tuner and connects to the amplifier, again offering global access to internet radio and PC-based music as well as FM.
Marketing Manager of Canohm, Robert Costello said, “For AM radio listeners it will be like the difference between black & white and colour TV. They and FM fans will also really enjoy the ability to display additional information on the LCD screen, such as the name of the song and the artist, or traffic, sports and weather updates.”
Sangean digital radios will be available from selected Myer, Harvey Norman, The Good Guys, Clive Peeters, Bing Lee and Retravision outlets.
