I have had the pleasure of listening to the Geneva Sound Model S speaker dock before, and now the people over at Geneva Sound have released an upgraded version with DAB digital radio included; meet the Geneva Sound Model S DAB.
Just like its sister model the Model S DAB comes with the same slick Swiss style piano finish, making the system ooze of class and quality. The LED that shines through the front panel, displaying song and artist information etc. does actually make a difference, and the motorized dock at the top also makes the system feel a cut above many of its competitors, not to mention the touch control buttons at the top that lights up when you touch them.They have put some great efforts into the finish of this system, just like they have with earlier Geneva Sound speaker docks. This might be a personal preference, but it is well worth getting the Model S DAB with the chrome table stand.
Inside the Geneva Sound Model S DAB you will find two 3-inch drivers and a couple of bass ports, producing a total of 30W output power, plenty enough for use in the bedroom/kitchen/ easy home listening. They have also added WiFi compatibility, which makes uncompressed streaming to the system available with receiver dongles and the 3.5mm input.
I have not had a chance to test the DAB model yet, so can’t comment on the listening experience and the functionality of the DAB radio part of the system, but if the sound is equal or improved compared with the sister model, then it is worth to shortlist as a possible system to buy.
The Geneva Sound Model S DAB is available in White/Black/Red.
