Summary: I did a fair amount of research before buying a new radio - especially as this was at the expensive end. We wanted a radio to move around the house and to take in the caravan and also to plug either an i-pod or phone into to listen to music.
Summary: I bought this radio despite reading the reviews of some unreliability on Amazon. My radio arrived Saturday and I was very happy with it and would have given it a 5 star rating. But by Monday morning the screen had gone blank. I read the manual, nothing.
Summary: Pro's - Great DAB radio at a resonable price. Nice design and finish, best of all a great sound with seperate bass and treble controls. Clear display, simple to use, auxilary input for your MP3 etc if required, battery or mains powered.
Summary: Right - it sounds great and its easy to use. It looks great (to me at least) and the controls feel really solid. It has a battery indicator, which is an important feature for me. The pause and rewind is excellent. So what's the problem?
Summary: Reasonably good reception but I find that I have to do a factory reset every couple of weeks as the reception seems to decline. Once reset it works ok for a while and then it needs reset again. Bit of a hassle as I have to then store all the presets.
Summary: I was very pleased with this radio, which I purchased nearly 2 years ago, until recently, then the display ceased to work. the radio still works, but you cannot see any information about the station it is tuned to.
Unreasonable issue --- software update only on 32-bit PC

Summary: Well designed radio with good sound for what it is. A bit bass heavy, but there are separate bass/treble controls. Like the other DAB radios I've heard, the sound lacks transparency. Tried upping the treble a bit to artificially compensate, but makes little difference.
Summary: I purchased this portable DAB radio to see whether it could detect digital broadcasts in my area (St Johns, Worcester) which is known not to have good reception. It did pick up several stations but the interference was too high to make listening feasible.
