Will the parade of “enhanced radios” we’re seeing in the international marketplace pick up steam?
A new multi-platform receiver offering is out from U.K. manufacturer Revo. The Domino D3 is a digital radio with a large number of features packed into a small tabletop box.
On the broadcast side, the Domino D3 receives DAB and DAB+ digital radio as well as FM (with RDS). Using a back-panel Ethernet port or onboard Wi-Fi, the D3 can access Internet radio and streaming audio sites. A complimentary 30-day subscription to Last.fm, the Internet music streamer now owned by CBS, is included.
The Domino D3 also has an iPod/iPhone dock, should radio offerings prove disappointing.
An OLED screen displays information. The exterior is coated with a rubberized substance. The single speaker is an NXT “Balanced Radiator.” Also included is an alarm clock function and a remote control.
