LOS ANGELES — Many, if not all of us, have seen or used Bluetooth speakers around our homes or offices. 

JBL has long made Bluetooth speakers but has now added some new features — DAB (band III) and FM radio.

The JBL Tuner is a compact portable Bluetooth speaker “packed with powerful sound and crystal clear DAB digital radio sound,” according to JBL. It also features a rechargeable battery that "supports up to eight hours of playtime.” If digital coverage isn’t available, simply switch to FM radio.

Other features include a scrolling backlit LCD screen and five DAB/FM preset buttons.
