LASER releases DG200 portable DAB+ digital radio



Sydney, Australia, July 29, 2010 – LASER Corporation, an IT and consumer electronics accessories company, today announced the first of its Digital Audio Broadcast (DAB+) products with the release of the DG200 DAB+ portable digital radio.

Offering a more extensive list of networks to listen to in crystal clear sound, the DG200 DAB+ digital radio allows users to view the name of the track and artist that is on air, as well as up-to-date sports results and news, which is shown in scrolling text on the device’s backlist display. Along with scrolling broadcast information, the DG200 DAB+ digital radio will allow listeners to tune in to FM radio should they wish. They will also be able to preset ten of their favourite FM stations and ten DAB+ stations.

Chris Lau, Managing Director of LASER Corporation, said, “Migration to digital radio in Australia commenced in mid 2009 and consumers are now realising the added potential that DAB+ has to offer. I think uptake of DAB started off a little slow like any new technology and now we are starting to see a positive trend in its adoption.”

“Until DAB+ radios become widely available in cars, LASER sees portable DAB+ units as a huge growth potential in the Australian market over the next few years. More and more DAB+ only radio stations are continuing to emerge and so too are the number of listeners,” continued Lau.

The LASER DG200 DAB+ portable digital radio will be available in Australia mid August 2010 through selected retailers. RRP $89.95 inc GST.
