Chengdu NewStar Electronics DR111 DRM Radio

The DR111 is a future DRM portable radio scheduled to hit the market later this year. Pre-production models may be shipped as early as April 2012. We have very little information about this receiver other than what has been posted on the CDNSE website (in fairly vague English–see below).

Let’s hope this portable can do what other shortwave DRM portables have failed to do in the past: effectively receive DRM stations, have an intuitive interface/design, and sold and readily available at an affordable price.
