Glenn, Leicester Casual listener

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Great sound for such a small unit.
Bad points:
Display is unbelievably dim and difficult to see.
DAB reception not brilliant and 'bubbles' quite a bit on some national stations. Local stations seem ok though.

Barrington, New Malden, Surrey Pop, rock or dance fan

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Great sound for a unit so small and compact. For the type of music I listen too (rock/metal) the bass control is excellent. Takes up only a small amount of space.

mike, swansea Pop, rock or dance fan

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
when powered back on at mains the unit retains memory of dab stations and fm stations and also restarts at where it left off on the ipod playlist. will charge the ipod while listening to radio or playing the cd. the aux connection to connect tv to the unit is in the rear so no trailing wires.
Bad points:
the wiring from the unit to the speakers could be more generous.

Bad points:
Only played a dozen times. The last time I tried to play a disc it wouldn't play and started making a loud banging noise and wouldn't switch off. Took 10 mins to get the disc out and finally had to unplug at the mains as it would not switch off. Tried to find a place it could be sent to to fix it but was unable to find anywhere. It had just run out of its guarantee. So now stuck with a machine that does not work.
