Choosing a radio

Radio in the window

Many radios are similar, but there are plenty of differences between functions.

  • Do you want to receive radio with a high sound quality?
  • Do you listen to more than just radio?
  • Do you want to receive thousands of international channels?
  • Where will you place the radio?

Do you want to receive radio with a high sound quality?

DAB+ radio

If you want the radio signal to be of high quality, choose a DAB+ radio. With DAB+, you listen to digital radio, so you hear a noise-free sound. You receive more stations and get more information about the music while listening, such as which artist plays which song on the radio.

Do you listen to more than just radio?

Choose a radio with Bluetooth if you listen to more than just radio. When a radio has Bluetooth, you can wirelessly stream music from your smartphone or tablet. This means you not only listen to radio, but also to your own playlists.

Do you want to receive thousands of international channels?

WiFi radio

When a radio has WiFi, you can listen to the radio via the internet. Because the signal goes through the internet, you receive thousands of radio stations. This way, you not only listen to radio from your own country, but also to international channels.

Where do you want to place the radio?

Kitchen radio

You can place a radio in different places in the house. You have models for the kitchen, for the bathroom, and for the bedroom. A kitchen radio is smaller in size, so you can easily place it nearby while cooking. A shower radio is water resistant, so you can place it in the bathroom. A radio for the bedroom has an alarm clock, which wakes you at the time you choose.
