Great AC/DC DAB/FM Radio in a 'kitchen' format

  • Excerpt: Are you a DAB fan? The Sony XDR-S 20, retailing at around £80, is one of the best current designs on the market for a kitchen radio. As a family we have four DAB radios - two mono and two stereo - and really appreciate the quality and choice of digital radio.
  • Pros: Unit and interface design leaves most others in the shade
  • Cons: Heavy with the six C batteries needed for power - hungry DAB

  • Summary: I have the black version and I think it looks really good with the yellowish background light. If you have a classic style in your home I would recommend a black one. The glossy white version would look good in a modern white kitchen.
  • Pros: Good looks
  • Cons: Some flaws

  • Summary: This radio uses so much power on DAB it makes listening with batteries impractical. Even with batteries in, plugging the mains lead in the back makes it forget all settings. The tuning dial doesn't actually turn. It would be nice if it had RDS for the FM stations.
  • Pros: Display is good on mains power.
  • Cons: Drains batteries fast, many features could just be 'better'.
