Kit of the Year The great DAB debate rages, but there's no doubt digital radios make great presents for regular listeners still tuning in to old trannies. Ahem. And these new fangled ones do FM and internet radio too.

Pure Digital Evoke Flow

Pure Digital Evoke Flow internet radio

Put simply, this is a great little radio. In terms of features and performance compared to price point, it's one the best we have seen for many a moon. It’s not very often that we get a product that really feels like big step forward, but this is one of those times. Everything is smooth with the Flow, the unit and its portal can do a lot, but you never feel like you are on a learning curve, all the thinking had been done for you, you simply need to choose what you want to listen to and how.

Revo Pico RadioStation

Pico Radio Station DAB radio

This is a great little all-round DAB/DAB+, Wi-Fi and FM radio which does nothing badly and everything to a high standard. The £170 price tag is on the right side of acceptable for the functions you get, and the product’s robust nature means you should get decent lifespan out of the Pico.

Roberts solarDAB radio

One of the Register Hardware team took the radio to a festival this past summer and reported that the handy device provided enough chill-out sounds for a full three days and still had power on his return. If you listen to the radio to any great extent outside then this is a really useful little addition to any holiday, camping trip or day on the river bank.
