First DAB+ AM/FM radio in Australia from LASER

Sydney, Australia, May 31, 2011 – LASER Corporation, IT and consumer electronics accessories company, today launched the DG200AM – the first portable Digital Audio Broadcast (DAB+) radio featuring digital and analogue.
With digital radio coverage currently spanning across Australian capital cities, the DG200AM DAB+ digital/analogue radio caters to listeners in all parts of the country, reaching a more widespread audience. Audio fanatics that love to listen to the radio and are based in regions outside major capital cities now can invest in a device that covers all the bases. The DG200AM DAB+ digital/analogue radio provides portability and versatility in the one package offering AM/FM, as well as crystal clear digital radio broadcasts where there is full DAB+ reception.
In addition to offering listening pleasure, the DG200AM DAB+ digital/analogue radio displays scrolling broadcast information via the backlit LCD screen including name of track and artist on air, plus up-to-date news and sports results. Along with scrolling information, the DG200AM DAB+ digital/analogue radio presents auto and manual scanning for stations, allows listeners to tune in to AM or FM radio and preset 20 favourite AM, FM and DAB+ stations. The DG200AM DAB+ digital/analogue radio is lightweight and considerably small measuring only 200 x 170 x 75mm, making it perfectly portable.
Chris Lau, Managing Director of LASER Corporation, said, "The uptake of DAB is progressing steadily with digital radio coverage in major capital cities across Australia. It still however leaves a large percentage of the population without full DAB+ reception. LASER developed the DG200AM to cater to a wider society, for listeners that still don't have digital radio coverage, as well as listeners that miss their AM radio. According to Digital Radio Plus, there are no plans to switch off AM and FM radio services just yet, so the DG200AM offers an ideal and inexpensive all-in-one solution for radio fans." The LASER DG200AM DAB+ digital/analogue portable radio is now available in Australia through selected retailers. RRP AU$99.95 inc GST.
