These are currently on backorder and there's a waiting list but man, these are soooo sweet looking!
Singgih Kartono chooses wood for his radios not just based on aesthetics but on his appreciation of wood's simplicity and organic vitality. The Magno radio combines the most current mp3 player compatible electronics with sustainably grown woods.
Much as I dig the visible tuning mechanism, I think I'm gonna go for the small one with all the nice little holes...
See for yourself: Magno Wooden Radios.

It's really nice to see a refreshing back to basics logo redesign. I for one totally love the big, classic script R. Very Nice!
I'm really digging the simplistic and easy to read 2 color design, sans all the trendy gradients, shadows and bevels. Not really sure about the tag line though, seems long.
This is from the Rossignol press release:
"Embracing the power and familiarity of the classic "R" (born in 1965), the new logo presents a strong, simple message: "This is made by Rossignol." We want to emphasize that Rossignol's products are made by people committed to perfection, and who have a deep understanding of the mountain lifestyle and environment. The "R" represents a unification of purpose, of direction and of reason."
As an old school skier I must say that I'm kinda missing the rooster though...
There's more good stuff in regard to logos and rebranding from the smart folks at Under Consideration over at their Brand New section.
