Excerpt: There's a healthy debate about the quality of digital radio: at its best, using high bit-rates and with a strong signal, it sounds great. But cram too many services in the available bandwidth – which happens plenty during a glorious summer of sport – and digital radio suddenly doesn't sound so good. That's why a combined DAB/FM tuner is great.
Pros: Easy on the ears on both DAB and FM, decent build, and easy to use
Cons: Not the last word in transparency or resolution at this price level, a bit signal-hungry
Excerpt: Yes, the case, controls and display are different, but under the hood the main audio board here is very, very similar to the Denon TU-1800DAB, and the FM and DAB tuner modules are essentially the same parts, though we understand there are some small but possibly significant differences in the details.
Pros: <p>Good midband detail and precision</p>
Cons: <p>Treble can thicken a little in busy music</p>
