future proofing meets retro classic design I have been debating the move to DAB from FM for some time now, following concerns I started hearing amongst my friends that FM had “run out of channels”. It was a shame as most of my equipment at home is FM and it has a lot of history for me in terms of listening, but we live in the 21st century and we need to move with the times.I actually bought this with some money I received for my birthday as I had read some good reviews. I’ve also bought KitSound in the past, and to be honest, I have been quite impressed. I was hoping that this would not disappoint either.So if you are aiming to future proof and maintain/exceed the level of output quality that you currently receive from your radios, then you should take a serious look at the Jive. And hey – if you just can’t stand the thought of letting go of FM just yet, then note that it has the ability to flick between both modes.Fair size front-firing twin drivers give some respectable volume at the top…

Elvis may have left the building; but this speaker is ready to rock ‘n’ roll My Mum got a Roberts Revival radio for Christmas and I absolutely love it. I was so impressed by the sound and design of the radio; I looked to get one myself, and then discovered the accompanying price tag, which seems to be anywhere between £160 – £200 and so my search stopped there.However, I started searching “retro portable radios” on Amazon and came across the KitSound Jive. Available in a number of colours I was firstly drawn to the price and secondly to the brand. It has been a while since I have purchased any KitSound gear, but knowing the speakers I have owned previously have always been a hit, I thought I’d give it a go… And at half the price of the higher-end Roberts’, the specification looked good and if anything, I preferred the rounder, softer shape.So, I decided to buy the Jive in black. The product arrived in good time and the first impression of the product, from the packaging, was a positive one. The packaging has a very 1950s feel with the…

Funky Retro Design but Decent Functionality I decided to buy this based on pretty much looks alone! It looks so cool and retro, better than the Roberts in my opinion. The all black leather and grille finish looks great, I’m glad I went for it (was considering cream). The only things that aren’t black are the KS logo and a nice bezel around the edge of the radio.When the radio arrived and I played with it for a couple of days, I was surprised at how modern and functional the technology is. Everyone knows about DAB now so I won’t go into detail on that, but I will say it picks up all the National and Local services and offers pretty strong reception compared to other portables I’ve owned. Easy one button scan/autotune. It also has FM reception if that’s still your cup of tea.Sound is very loud if you want it to be, but it’s pretty true and the base is excellent for a small unit. Craig Charles Funk and Soul show sounds fantastic on it, this radio does a great job of getting the most out of the DAB…
