JP, Ipswich Gadget lover

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
This is one of the best purchases I have made, and I have no regrets. When I purchased it, the page stated it had no alarm, but when I set it up it did; an extra bonus!
Wake up to DAB, IPod or Internet Radio listening to any podcast or radio station in the entire world. There is just so many good things I could say about it!
Bad points:
The only thing I would like is for the display to show what is playing on the iphone/ipod, although it leaves the display on the iphone/ipod on to show you.

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
The ease of using the internet radio, with its touch screen control its so easy to surf the radio stations of the whole world, along side the DAB radio and the iPod dock its a complete package. nothing else is needed.
Bad points:
I dont seem to be able to dull down the LCD display so its a bit to bright for a dark bedroom at night.

Richard, Slovakia Music fan

Score 6.0/10
Good points:
It connects to my wifi without any trouble, signal strength is bit weird, but it works, without any trouble. Produces decent amount of Mids and Treble, FM and DAB reception is fantastic. There is included remote as well-you can use it to control most of the functions.
Bad points:
Internet radio streams takes 3-times longer to buffer on Nocturne XP2 compared to my old school Soundbridge M1001. Built in subwoofer is not really a subwoofer - Bass are very weak - it is sort of a 3inch speaker at the back, which is not enough to produce enough of bass. But hint was found out - there is the hole at the back, which supposed to work as bass reflex, cover it up by some sponge and bass will get a bit better.

Good points:
Easy to set up and use, I was listening to Internet radio within 5 minutes of taking it out of the box! It really does everything it days on the tin! For the money paid it has been one of my finest purchases, if you are looking for something which has DAB, Internet and iPhone capability and you don't delude your expectations about sound quality ( let's be honest, if you're looking for serious sound quality, you wouldn't be looking at anything in this price range!!!) this is your best purchase.
Bad points:
not come across any yet!
