When you think digital radios, the cool minimalism of a PURE Digital may come to mind. But what if you want a blingtastic chromed-up silver egg? Step forward the GCR 1930 DAB stereo clock radio from Goodmans.
It's the size of an Easter egg from someone who doesn't want to buy you a really big Easter egg, but doesn't think a creme egg will quite cut it, and it offers everything you would expect in a stereo clock radio. Goodmans claim it's available 'in chrome and frosted glass effect finish'. In other words, silver and green plastic. To be honest, it looks a bit of a dog's dinner: from the front it's mainly egg, from the back the speakers makes it look like a menacing alien. Perhaps he wants his egg back.
The device has a lot of buttons, many of which do things. We initially recoiled in horror, but in practice it was pretty simple to figure out. The sound reminded Crave of an ordinary clock radio, and lacks that eerie crisp clean digital tone we've come to love from more expensive radios, but on the other hand, if you just want something to tune in to Johnny Vaughn it will clearly do the trick.
The Goodmans GCR 1930 DAB costs around £70 online. Did we mention it looks like an egg? -MFL
