Revo's portable DAB+ tuner

UK audio company Revo has announced the Pico RadioStation, a new DAB radio tuner. Aside from DAB and FM radio broadcasts, the Pico is also designed to stream computer and Internet content through a LAN connection. Particularly important may be compatibility with DAB+, an improved radio standard with error correction and support for AAC+ compression. The Pico is said to be one of the first portable tuners with the technology, although it is nearly 6.6 inches tall.

The device is additionally claimed to be "splashproof" for use in bathrooms and kitchens, and capable of running for 12 hours on a lithium-ion battery. Connection options include Ethernet, Wi-Fi, a 3.5mm headphone jack and RCA line-out. The tuner should ship to the UK in September, at a cost of 170 ($318).
