Summary: This is a brilliant little device. Superb clarity, smart, beautifully constructed, functional and I have had no problems with reception - which, even if I had, could hardly be the fault of the device 'per se'.
Summary: I live in the East Midlands. Although the radio finds the names of all the available DAB stations, it does not pick up the actual sound for *any* of the stations, even when put in the same place as our other DAB radio that picks up DAB stations fine.
Summary: Don't buy this. I could not get a decent reception at all despite living in a good dab area (my other dab radios work fine). A poor product from a usually trustworthy brand. I can confirm all other negative comments made here.
Summary: This always was a great piece of kit. Since the digital switch over though the signal problems have almost gone! I couldn't get a signal in the house before and now i get a full signal.

Summary: My wife bought me one for christmas but am really dissappointed with the reception. This radio is meant to be portable, which indeed it is, but the reception continuously breaks up and often stops completely for several seconds at a time. Reception in fm is also quite poor.
Summary: The radio is bigger than the average FM radio or MP3 player, and the batteries makes it heavy. I found that the DAB radio did not work as good as I had hoped, and in some areas it does not work at all, when it does work however the sound quality is fantastic.
Summary: Was quite disappointed with this radio, the reception was not good although i am living in a DAB area (FM was fine). The display is very dark to see even with the backlight on and it gives out an anoying beep when the buttons are pressed.
Summary: I have owned this unit for some years back when it cost over £100. Sound and reception for me are OK. There are a couple of places in my home where reception drops off but for me its not a big deal. Battery life is a problem.
