Roberts Radio has launched the first in a "exciting new range" of DAB radios with what appears to be an emphasis on ease of use with a more affordable price point than previous models.

The "Elise", aimed at "modern" kitchens or bedrooms, is a £49.99 DAB/FM RDS radio available in black or white.

Said to be easy to use, with an "easy-to-navigate menu", the Elise offers 9 station presets - including a fave station button, blue LCD display and large rotary volume control.

Features include line output, headphone and DC input sockets and the option to run it either from the mains or via batteries.
