Today, Sharp announces the launch of its new digital and internet radios. The table top models include a sleek, modern design and first-class sound and are now available from online retailers.

It’s cold and wet outside and all you want is to curl up at home whilst listening to your favourite radio station. Sharp digital radios, DR-450 and DR-S460, are your ideal companion for those lazy days. These elegant products come with a stylish wooden body, an aluminium front, telescopic aerial and a contemporary white on black colour display. Both models are equipped with DAB/DAB+/FM and RDS. Offering wireless streaming via Bluetooth® you can play your favourite playlist straight from your smartphone or tablet. Users can select from up to 60 individual stations for a comprehensive listening experience.

In contrast to the mono DR-450, the DR-S460 boasts impressive stereo sound with an output of 30 watts. Via the 3.5 mm AUX input you can connect a wide range of playback devices.

The digital radio DR-450 is available now in black, white, grey, and brown at £79.99 RRP. The stereo model DR-S460 is now available in black, white and grey at £94.99 RRP.

The stereo internet radio DR-I470 also has DAB/DAB+/FM and Bluetooth®. Once connected via Wi-Fi the DR-I470 captures up to 10,000 internet radio stations. Connect your smartphone or tablet via Bluetooth to play music from streaming services like Spotify and Apple music. With an infinite range of radio stations, music tracks, audio books and podcasts you will be spoilt for choices as you stay home and out of the cold. The 2.4“ colour display shows the time, alarm time and weather when in standby and displays station, song and artwork information when in use. The 3.5 mm headphone connection paves the way to pure personal hearing pleasure. With the supplied remote control there is no need to get up from your cosy sofa to change the song.

The DR-I470 is available now in black, white and grey at a recommended retail price of £129.99 RRP, making it one of the most competitively priced internet radios available today.
