Retro Design Cleveland disc jockey Alan Freed may have coined the term 'rock and roll' in 1951, but the whole ethos of the genre only gained mass appeal when Elvis Presley released what was to be the first of his 170 hit songs 'Heartbreak Hotel' five years later. If it weren't for the likes of Elvis, Buddy Holly and Chuck Berry giving young people a sense of identity and freedom by bringing rock and roll to the juke boxes of those 1950s diners, music today would sound completely different. In honour of that innovative era, our KS Jive not only looks the part, but it sounds good too. Not only can you listen to regular FM radio stations, but because the Jive is a DAB radio, you can also listen to digital stations, giving you a wider choice of channels and more music.
Because of the way DAB technology works, broadcasters can transmit more stations than ever before. So whether you want old school disco, 70s glam rock or classic pop anthems, with the KS Jive you can tune into a variety of different music 24 hours a day. Because it picks up a digital broadcast signal, there's less hiss, crackle and fade, meaning music will sound even better, and what's more you don't need to worry about remembering wavelengths and frequencies or fine tuning a station to get the best reception - simply choose name of the station from the Jive's easy-to-read digital display, which will even give the track titles and artist names too. So there'll be no more frantic Internet searches, trying to find out the name of that amazing track you just heard.
As well as also having an adjustable carry handle, the KS Jive features a multi-function control panel with a sleep/snooze option, quick scan button and you have the option to connect it to the mains or use batteries.

Kitsound X-Dock 2 Lightning Connector Clock Radio Dock for iPhone 5 - Blue
- In Stock
Introducing the KitSound XDock2 Made specifically for devices with a lightning connection, this docking station will wake you up with great sound, and its compact, stylish design means it looks good too. Clever Design You'd be forgiven for thinking that radio alarms are a relatively modern invention, but it's believed that ancient Greek philosopher Plato used a large water clock to wake him for early morning lectures. The KS XDock2 is a bit more sophisticated than that, though. It may be small enough to sit comfortably on your bedside table, but this clock dock is surprisingly loud for its size. And as well as charging your iPhone or iPod so that it's ready for the day ahead, it also automatically syncs the time from your device the instant you dock it. Wake How You Want Whether you choose to wake to the FM radio, the buzzer, or your favourite iTunes, the XDock2 gives you the flexibility to wake up how you want to. There's also a 'Shhh' button for an extra 8 minutes sleep, because, let's face it, no one gets up first go do they? About KitSound We are craftspeople. We are musicians.
