I was considering much more expensive DAB personal radios to listen to sport on after my 18 year old Aiwa FM/AM personal radio finally gave up the ghost. I have bought 3 more expensive personal DABs (though admittedly not top brand) and the reception on all was pretty dreadful. I was in the market for a replacement AM/FM radio when I saw this advertised for such a ridiculously low price I thought it had to be a typo so I took a chance and ordered one.
Build quality is on the cheap side and buttons a bit flimsy but acceptable for the money. It looks as stylish as many more expensive products.
I was pleasantly surprised - the reception was excellent - much better than my other personal DABs. Be careful when doing the initial scan that you are situated in a known good spot so that all the normal stations will tune into the memory.
The sound quality is not the best - the supplied earpieces don't help. Replace them and use decent earphones and it makes an improvement from poor to ok. The EQ does not alter sound greatly but the sound is OK bearing in mind the cost. I bought mine mainly for listening to Talkradio / Radio 5 Live and sports broadcasts and it is excellent at that job.
Overall, I can have no complaints - DAB at this price seemed unrealistic till I got this little thing.
Well done Play.com!!
