10 best digital radios
From stylish retro-looking machines to sleek ultra-modern designs, Max Wallis tunes in to find the top receivers for our homes

There's something special about having the radio on in the background that sparks the curious mind. In my experience I end up "Shazam'ing" more than ever. I'm not in control of what 80s classic will turn up next and somehow that's more liberating than retreading my own collection - consider it a form of aural exploration. From Roberts' retro-revival to modern visual poetry from Pure, we've tried a range of radios so you don't have to.

If you want to splash out on the best, I'd recommend the Pure Sensia Connect or the Ruark R1. Both have excellent sound and great features. But for those on a budget you wouldn't go wrong by the Viewquest Retro or the John Lewis Spectrum Duo.
