Sony introduces first DAB+ radios

01 April 2011

Retro-styled XDR-S16DBP portable radio and XDR‑C706DBP clock radio

• XDR-S16DBP portable radio with superb stereo sound and natural wood cabinet
• XDR-C706DBP clock radio with large, clear display and four alarm settings

vTwo new DAB/DAB+/FM digital radios from Sony add more style to enjoying your favourite broadcasts.
Blending subtly retro looks with outstandingly crisp stereo sound, the AC‑powered XDR-S16DBP portable radio offers beautifully simple operation and handy features. There’s no excuse for oversleeping with the compact XDR‑C706DBP clock radio that features a large, clear display and four alarms.

The XDR-S16DBP and XDR‑C706DBP are the first micro radios from Sony that offer compatibility with the enhanced DAB+ digital broadcasting standard that’s now rolling out across several European countries. Thanks to a more efficient coding scheme, DAB+ lets listeners enjoy an even wider range of radio stations, plus crystal clear, interference free digital sound. Both models offer a generous choice of 10 DAB/DAB+ presets for storing your favourite digital radio stations, plus a further 10 FM presets.

The XDR-S16DBP makes a distinctive design statement with its elegantly rounded natural wood cabinet. Clean, timeless lines emphasize the radio’s simple, uncluttered controls that assure easy operation.

DAB, DAB+ and FM broadcasts are reproduced with clear stereo sound from the 0.8W+0.8W stereo speakers. The generously-sized 16x2 character LCD display gives a clear readout of DAB/DAB+ channel and programme information.

A Sleep Timer switches off the radio after a preset delay, saving power after you’re dropped off while listening in bed. There’s also a headphone jack for enjoying your favourite radio shows in private without disturbing others.

The large, clear LCD display ensures you always know the right time. Up to four separate alarm settings can be programmed – ideal if you and your partner keep different schedules. There’s also a snooze button and sleep timer.
