GENUS TYPE-R, pounds 150

As of summer 2006, 3.2 million DAB radios have been sold. How many of

them are as attractive as the Type-R? None, that's how many. Check out the

red, touch-sensitive display, the walnut and leather finish and the retro

styling. It's a dream. And it should sound good, too, with bass-enhancing

technology to get the most out of its 2w stereo speakers. Plus, there's a

line-in and an optional rehargeable battery. Genus will sell 3.2million of

these alone. Mark our words...

VENZERO MINIONE, FROM pounds 80

Much time is spent trawling cyberspace, typing lyrics into Google and searching Tunes for a song whose name you can't recall. The Venzero miniOne will do all the hard work for you. Record a mini clip of any tune, sync your player with the bundled Media Manager and it'll hunt down the song. It comes with 1GB or 2GB of flash memory and will convert video content for playback.

POWERTRAVELLER K3000 SOUNDTRAVELLER, pounds 45

Physics says very small speakers can't move enough air to sound big and bassy. But it hasn't reckoned with Powertraveller's lever electronics that make the tiny aluminium and silicon-clad Soundtravellers rock like speakers twice their size. Don't be fooled by the iPod dock either - there's a 3.5mm auz input so any music player can get a piece of the action. www.powertraveller.com tuffmagazine.co.uk

LOGITECH WIRELESS DJ, pounds 180

Streaming is nothing to do with Oxbridge types punting new boys down the river. It eans shifting files around wirelessly - in this case MP3s from your PC to your hi-fi. A transmitter plugs into your computer's USB port, where it pairs with iTunes or Media Player and the receiver hooks up to your stereo's line input. www.logitech.co.uk
