Once again, the gang at Brionvega
prove that sometimes sexy is enough. The Italian company's been doing its thing since the 1940s, and this radio is actually a refresh of a model that first debuted in 1965. The RR227 (as it's affectionately known) is pretty straightforward -- an AM / FM tuner that sports an SD card slot for MP3 or WMA playback. This bad boy also features headphone out, aux in, and a USB connection. It will run off of European mains power (Yanks will need to get an AC adapter) or, if you're picnicking with a loved one near the Seine, it also runs off batteries. Available in black, white, or red. Retails for €199 (about $260). More pics after the break.
