The only thing preventing us from embracing satellite radio is the dreary plastic radios themselves. So we're very pleased to introduce the Etón P'7131 and P'7132. In addition to FM, AM, and shortwave, they have XM satellite capability, plus the P'7131 has a powered subwoofer that pumps bass out the back. More important, these slick silver-and-black cases were engineered by Porsche Design, calling to mind Midcentury Modern classics like Richard Sapper's black cube TV for Brionvega. P'7131, $300; P'7132, $150; www.etoncorp.com.
