[access-uk] Re: Talking roberts dab radio

I have left Wireless For The Blind behind a long time ago. Thankfully I am in a 
position where I can afford to choose my own radio and I would certainly choose 
the Sonus over any of the Roberts models I have seen.

  Duet maybe because of DAB and FM?

  Admittedly, sticking on some yellow knobs and asking another £20, does indeed 
seem a little bit cheeky!

    The radio is from article evidently a modified Roberts RD8 available from 
anywhere but with yellow knobs stuck all over it against darker caswork for an 
extra 20 quid over the usual asking price.  Most significantly it doesn't speak 
it's display.  I'm curious as to the name "duet", it's only got the one 
speaker, what has it got to of?

    Regards.
