Sanyo is getting into the Digital Radio market with the launch of a new Hi-Fi system - the DC-DAB01. Alongside the digital radio will be an FM band digital tuner and front-loading CD.

Supposedly recognising that many consumers of digital radio are of an older generation, Sanyo has gone for a more classic design with the DAB01. This has additionally been supplemented with improved sound (Bass Xpander and digital amplifier assist the 100W power), to ensure the radio also appeals to the more tech-savvy consumer.

The start of a series of digital radio being introduced by SANYO, the DAB01 will be available in September with a yet to be set but an expected retail price of between £190 and £210.
