Summary: Bought this because my friend has the same model but a few years old and white colour! It has a lovely sound bass treble etc So on the strength of that I bought this new model,only to find that the sound is nowhere near as good the older model sounds bit tinny not the same quality build. The Pure DAB is much better quality and the sound knocks the Sony out of the window!
Summary: I bought this radio after buying a smaller Sony clock radio which impressed me with it's quality of sound. I am equally pleased with this larger stereo version which I have on my desk for general background listening.It is straightforward to use and provides a good range of stations on DAB or FM. I would say it's not the most stylish of the DAB radios on the market,but at a good discount on the full normal price I'm very pleased.
Summary: I bought this Sony DAB Radio to replace the cheap one I bought from Aldi. The radio looks very retro, but stylish in a wood casing. The sound is very impressive (clear and loud), but you would expect this from anything with the name Sony on it. The controls are simple to use and very logical. The LCD display is of a high quality and is very clear. I had the radio working with 5 preset stations saved within 10 minutes.
Summary: I shopped around for ages trying to find the best DAB radio and decided on this one. It is made by the trusted Sony brand, has an attractive 'new retro' design and two big speakers. Anything less expensive has smaller speakers, is less pretty to look at, or is made by a less reliable company (in my opinion only). I have used it for a week now and I'm really pleased with it. It is really good quality-it looks as expensive as it was, or better.
Summary: We use this in our kitchen for sports news & Saturday morning radio. The sound quality isn't superb but it fits the job. A bit pricey for what you get but the most attractive product in it's price range by a long way.
Summary: The radio looks good and has good sound. I bought it for the sleep function, which is excellent, allowing me to fall asleep without it being on all night. Only four stars as the display is too bright in the dark, when the radio is on and there is no way of turning it down.
Summary: I just received this today and I'm very pleased with it. The sound is clear and well balanced, and the volume can be turned up quite loud - easily loud enough for the front room. I listen to radio 2 & 4 and the speech is very clear, more so than other radios I tried. It's easy to use and tuning is very fast. I had it up and running in seconds. I moved it round the house, upstairs and downstairs, and it works fine anywhere with the aerial up.
Summary: I purchased this Radio as a Birthday gift for my other half, choosing it mainly for the Sony name and retro look. It looks great in any room in the house and I was really surprised at the good sound quality, which was my main concern. It was easy to tune and also to set the required stations. For the price it's a really good buy.
