DAB listeners can now combine high-tech functions such as setting a timer to activate a reminder when a particular programme is on with the traditional styling of a Roberts radio.

The new MP-SOUND 41 is a compact portable DAB radio that features an Electronic Programming Guide (EPG), which allows listeners to program the radio to record their favourite shows up to a week in advance. The radio can record up to 12 programmes at any one time, ensuring listening fits in with your lifestyle.

Listeners can record up to eight hours of programmes directly on to an SD card, which can then be played back on a computer. Alternatively, MP3/WMA files can be transfered from a PC to an SD card and played back through the radio's speakers, creating a mini sound system.

Listeners will also benefit from the PausePlus feature, which allows live radio to be paused and then continued playing at your convenience.

Available in a silver finish, the MP-SOUND 41 is priced at £139.99 and for more information visit www.robertsradio.co.uk.
