Gadget of the Day: Tangent Cinque

Danish DAB dudes Tangent are a clever bunch. Anything they don’t know about radio would fit on the back of a microscopic postage stamp. But now

Danish DAB dudes Tangent are a clever bunch. Anything they don’t know about radio would fit on the back of a microscopic postage stamp. But now they’ve branched out on a bit of a, er, tangent to whack a CD player into the new Cinque model.

Not wanting to break with the Tangent trend it keeps the heavyweight wooden cabinet and retro styling of the others in the range, with newly added slot for spinning those shiny discs, even ones packed with MP3s or WMAs.

DAB duties are dealt with keenly by auto-tuning and 12 presets and the whole lot is powered by a 5-watt RMS amplifier. Want to wake up with Wogan? No worries, the Tangent is packing an alarm with snooze functions, too.

They’re on sale this week and it’d look lovely over there on the sideboard, don’t you think?
