Geneva Sound Lab products are designed and engineered for simplicity, style – and, most importantly, great sound quality. Geneva products create a strikingly realistic stereo image with patented technology, no matter where the listener is in the room.

Geneva have created some of the finest one-box systems, both portable and for the home, equipped with a range of technology, including Bluetooth, CD players, FM radio and DAB radio. Geneva steer away from typical boring hi-fi design – their products are as much elegant design pieces as they are superb hi-fi products.

The Geneva range includes the latest versions of the ubiquitous Model XS, Model S, Model M, Model L, and Model XL systems, which - as the name suggests, are different sized sound systems designed for different sized rooms. More recently, Geneva won a 2015 industry award for the Model Cinema soundbar and released their multi-room capable Aerosphere sound systems.

Geneva Lab is based in Switzerland and their products are highly regarded for their distinct balance of performance, simplicity, style, and sustainability by experts from a range of industries including industrial design, fashion and technology. Geneva stormed the Home Audio market over a decade ago with their first high-end dual speaker stereo systems built into single cabinets. These were constructed from high-quality material, finished to flawless standards and featured patented technologies to enhance the stereo field dispelling the myth that high-quality stereo sound was unachievable from a single unit. Wired Magazine crowned Geneva Sound Systems the 'Steinway' of the audio world with other systems merely toy pianos.

Legendary manufacturers have since followed Geneva's pioneering approach. Revered for their rich heritage, incredible sound and striking look, the Geneva Sound Systems of today grace leading fashion stores worldwide. This passion for innovation, design and ease-of-use is the motivation for the dedicated development team as they continue to push forward. From their all-in-one hi-fi systems to elegant portable DAB+/FM/Bluetooth speakers, Geneva's goal is to create products that are a joy to use, live with and that give music lovers globally incredible and uncompromised sound quality.

Due to the simple user interfaces, Geneva products may look deceivingly low tech but inside conceals the latest technology available. To place a 600W amplifier, a CD slot loader and two large sub-woofers in a single wood cabinet is hugely challenging. Heat and vibration are major issues that had to be overcome. Geneva was one of the first companies using powerful digital amplifiers to resolve the heat issues.

The Geneva range today includes the latest versions of the ubiquitous Model XS, Model S, Model M, Model L, and Model XL systems, which - as the name suggests, are different sized sound systems designed for different sized rooms. More recently, Geneva won a 2015 industry award for the Model Cinema sound bar and released their multi-room capable Aerosphere sound systems.

For many years, traditional AM, MW and FM radio signals were the only way of enjoying playback of radio material. However, much like television and the switchover to digital mediums, DAB radio is rapidly becoming the standard of choice, and was introduced to offer higher quality, better sounding audio. DAB signals were introduced to eliminate the issues of analogue crackling and the need to constantly retune your radio to achieve the best sound quality. DAB Radio is much less prone to interference affecting the quality of your audio signal, is significantly easier to tune in to, and also offers a range of other benefits such as song and station information visible on a dedicated screen or display.

A key benefit of DAB Radio is choice. At present, FM radio spectrum is overloaded with stations and information, which is why issues of hearing two stations simultaneously were common with FM radio signals. This means there is no space for new stations. However, with DAB, due to digital signalling, there is a much greater range of stations available, and no issues with interference or crossover between channels.

Today, nearly half of the population has a DAB Radio, and the government has made suggestions that at some point in the future, there will be a switchover to only digital radio signals once a particular coverage is reached. While the popularity of Digital Radio broadcasts continues to rise, and discussions of a switchover continue, most DAB Radios will also feature FM and AM functionality, providing an additional level of versatility and letting you enjoy your favourite FM and AM broadcasts.

Many DAB radios offer DAB+ functionality, allowing an even greater quality of radio playback and better audio quality. DAB+ was launched in 2006, and uses a different audio format, and offers greater error correction coding. In order to listen to DAB+ coverage, your radio needs to support this. However, if your radio set does not have DAB+ functionality, then virtually all DAB stations broadcast in standard DAB alongside any DAB+ broadcasts. This is likely to be the case until DAB+ is the digital radio standard of choice, and when all radios feature DAB+ functionality.

Many devices and other products feature Digital DAB Radio internally, such as Freeview and Sky TV boxes, all in one Hi-Fi Systems. However, a product that is designed as only a DAB Radio gives you a greater freedom of placement, and may also feature dedicated radio functions not available on other products. For example, when listening to digital radio through a Sky or Freeview box, the TV screen will need to be switched on in order to attain information from the radio station such as track and show information. However most, if not all, DAB radios will feature a dedicated display, allowing for easy display of information relating to your favourite radio channel and shows. Many models use an OLED display, which offers greater image quality, and is much more readable in darker environments thanks to a higher contrast ratio.
