Good Sound and Useful Sleep Function.

Retiredtenor, Amazon
10 July 2013
  • 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.

Good clear sound

  • Summary: This is a nice looking and easy to use radio. The dropping of a star is due to the LCD read out which is of a good brightness for day time, but at night (bearing in mind it has a sleep mode, so presumably designed with night time use in mind) lights up half the room. I have to lay a cloth over the LCD as there is no way of dimming it. Other than this it produces a good sound quality.

Good radio

D S S, Amazon

  • Summary: Good sound clarity and build quality as expected with Sony. LED display is a little small, but nice wood veneer around the sides. Great volume for the kitchen and though some problems picking up a few DAB stations in the kitchen corner, this was quickly fixed with the aerial being adjusted. Once scanned, the aerial wasn't really needed.

QUALITY DAB

Ricardo Hull, Amazon
13 February 2013
  • Summary: Once again excellent service from Amason, recieved in a couple of days from ordering. First impressions a well built product. Easy to set up with very good reception on all my favourite stations. Sound is crystal clear with a nice depth without being too heavy on the bass. If this radio gives half the service as my old analogue Panasonic it will have been money well spent.

Clear as a bell sound

  • Excerpt: There's not that much you can say about a radio is there? Either it runs on the mains or it has a battery. You switch it on and sounds come out. Now I will readily admit that in many areas I am technically illiterate. I may not always know how things work or are able to repair them when they go wrong, indeed many things cannot be repaired by us. Many things just have to be thrown away especially in micro electronics.
  • Pros: Easy to use, no interference
  • Cons: Nothoing as far as I am concerned

Not so Pure

Ed Rodaway, Amazon
23 April 2012
  • Summary: In the past I have always bought the Pure brand of radio believing they provided the best quality for the money. However having the power adapter of the first break in half and the second simply stop working while listening to it, I have decided their reliability is not up to scratch and bought a Sony. The Sony radio does everything well and provided an excellent output.

Sony XDRS16DP DAB+/DAB Radio

SSP, Amazon
24 August 2011
  • Summary: I wanted to have a change from my PURE Digital radio after one of the two that I have owned for years went faulty. I bought this unit because it looked totally different from the PURE units yet is still a decent quality model. The bass sound quality is slightly lower than the PURE unit and I would much rather have numbered buttons for preset radio stations instead of having to use the dial to scroll through them.

Wertig, aber mit einer kleinen Schwäche!

Hektor, Amazon
12 February 2013
  • Summary: Das DAB-Radio ist sehr wertig verarbeitet und verrichtet seine Aufgabe hervorragend. Einzig eine feste Verknüpfung auf favorisierte Radiosender fehlt meiner Meinung nach für das perfekte Produkt. Ansonsten ist es für mich das ideale Radio.

Überzeugt...

René, Amazon
14 September 2012
  • Summary: Der Sony ist bereits das sechste DAB+-Gerät, was ich hier teste. Wegen der topographischen Situation scheiden hier trotz nur 15km Luftlinie zum 10kW-Sender empfangsschwache Radios aus. Sony zeigt, dass es geht. Der XDRS16DBPMI (wer erfindet diese kryptischen Modellnamen eigentlich?) liefert aussetzerfreien Empfang, im Gegensatz zu ähnlichpreisigen Empfängern anderer Hersteller. Der Klang ist abhängig von der Bitrate des Streams überzeugend, auch über die Kopfhörerbuchse.
