Summary: I bought this to replace an early Roberts FM/DAB radio which I've owned for several years. This new model has much better reception on both FM and DAB than my old radio. Ok, I live in a good signal area but I can now pick up local stations from neighbouring areas quite easily.
Focus on battery power and comparing this to my first DAB radio.

Summary: I was after a DAB radio with long battery life, with punchy sound and easy to use. Roberts claim a wopping 150 hours using six D size alkaline batteries. "Which" report found 81 hours when they tested it.
Good looking, great sounding Which? Best Buy DAB radio

Summary: This DAB radio looks good, is finished to a high standard, and thanks to the 2 front facing stereo speakers, has a full rich sound on both speech and music, with no distortion, even when turned up to a high level. The blue backlit top mounted display is large and the text is easy to read.
Summary: I bought this radio for my wife for a Christmas present and I was so impressed with it that I bought one for myself to use in my garden shed whilst pottering about. When you first switch it on it searches for all the digital radio stations that can be found in your area.
Summary: Having read other reviews & trying out some in stores, chose this one. It was the right result. Set up was effortless, sound is superb from such a small unit. Plenty of stations to choose from (& we are not in the best area) Used in the kitchen on a daily basis, would recomend this to one & all.
Summary: This is a well-constructed, stylish radio with first class performance. The DAB auto-tune is very fast indeed. The cabinet is well designed and along with highly-developed electronics it makes the most of the good quality speakers.
