Wherever you are, whatever you’re doing – listen on the move with the colourfully styled new XDR-S40DBP digital radio from Sony. Light and easy to carry, the portable digital radio lets you enjoy your favourite radio shows anywhere, with clear digital sound quality.

Available in black, white or eye-catching red, the XDR-S40DBP is simple to use with clear, uncluttered buttons. The crisp LCD screen keeps you informed with the name of the digital station you’re listening to currently, as well as other scrolling information like the song title that’s playing or more information about the show.

Fancy another channel? Just flick through the list of digital station names and make your choice, with no need to remember frequencies. With 10 DAB/DAB+ and 10 FM station presets, there’s plenty of space to store your favourite stations.

Plug into the nearest wall socket and listen on AC mains power or head for the nearest beach or garden shed and listen for up to 13 hours[1] on standard AA alkaline batteries.

For privacy, there’s a headphone jack for undisturbed listening when you need to keep things to yourself. There’s also a sleep timer that lets you drift off to the soothing sounds of the radio.

The new XDR-S40DBP digital radio from Sony is available in the UK from April 2013.
