      Reviewed by Mark Hodgkinson, 20th February 2013. The Geneva WorldRadio combines a rugged yet chic design with a mixture of modern day conveniences and superior audio quality in a package that merits serious consideration. OK, compared to some, it may seem expensive and it does have its limitations and weaknesses but, above all, it’s a damn good listen and a firm AVForums Recommendation.

      I really like this radio. If my criticisms seem harsh, please read this sentence again!:thumbsup:

      Positives::smashin:

      Portability, battery operation, Bluetooth, music quality, styling, flexibility.

      Negatives::thumbsdow

      The position of antenna blocks deployment of the handle;
      It is possible to accidentally plug the power supply plug into the headphone socket and it even "clicks" in - but of course the unit doesn't charge;
      The display is hard to read when changing DAB stations;
      The volume knob works in reverse (clockwise makes it quieter);
      Speech has a mid-base bloom, which combined with the typical acoustics of a shelf or bench placement, can make speech (especially male voices) unintelligible, especially in a noisy environment like a kitchen. This is a serious problem for older people and people with a hearing disability. It could easily be addressed through an equalizer adjustment in the firmware, should Geneva choose.:lease:
