What would you like to do next?
I have had the Sonata for about two years, it was called the Orion web box at that time. I heard about it from my daisy cd from TNAUK. My guide dog had just retired and been diognosed with cancer and I decided to look after him until he died. That was why I decided to buy it and have never regreted it.
I am seventy nine now and have another guide dog, but spend lots of time alone with my dog listening to the Sonata. The box can be plugged into any power socket wherever I am so I am able to listen in any part of my house. I always listen to the podcast of the Archers late at night or of course any other programme I have missed, it is wonderful. I have just added another local radio station to my ever increasing list, I just have to send an email to request a change, and it is on the box when I next switch it on.
When I received the Sonata I had it attached to the broadband by a friend. I switched on and the first words I heard told me how to use it. It’s so simple that even I had no trouble using it.
Thank you John, Luke and team for keeping us up to date with all the news.
