Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Sound quality from size of box is exceptional. And it does what it says on the box!
Bad points:
None that are caused by the unit itself. It would be good to have a more enriched way of finding a station among the 6000+ and growing, but this would require a far more sophisticated unit that the IMP and its peers.

Steve, Ipswich

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
This is a revolutionary product. It's a fantastic piece of kit. The sound quality is amazing. The choice of stations is endless, and an added bonus is being able to access the BBC's listen again service. It's great to be able to scroll through for favourite programmes from the week. What I especially like is that you can switch it off, half way through, and it picks up in the same spot. Highly recommended.
Bad points:
It was a bit complicated to set up with wireless security. For a day or so I had to run it on open wireless access. But I was impressed with the helpline service. It answered pretty quickly, on a local rate number and the advice was spot on.
