Good points:
The MP3 connectivity is brilliant. You just plug it in a play! Nice and small, since the space where I wanted to put it is limited. The Eco Power idea is excellent.
Bad points:
The CD player has an audible gap between tracks, where normally you'd run smooth from one track to the next. Also, has developed buzzing sound when in Eco Power.

Confirmed purchaser

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
The design of the product looks good. It has suffiecient weight (i.e. does not move when you press a button). The sound quality is good to loud volumes and fills an average size room very well. The sleep timer and alarm functions are very useful. The USB capability is good and plays the music well. The Dynamic Bass Boost works well. The remote works from a good distance away.
Bad points:
The device does not play WMA with any DRM, even if the DRM is to say it can be played, however it will play MP3s no problem. The back-light of the screen only goes off when put into Eco-Power (press Power button for 2 seconds). Unfortunately, it does not go into Eco-Power mode when the Sleep-Timer turns the unit off, so backlight remains on all night unless manually turned off, which I personally find too bright to sleep with it on.

DAB and FM compatible for a full radio experience

DAB (Digital Audio Broadcasting) digital radio is, in addition to FM analogue transmission, a new way of broadcasting radio via a network of terrestrial transmitters. It provides listeners with more choices and information delivered in crystal clear, crackle-free sound quality. The technology allows the receiver to lock onto the strongest signal it can find. With DAB digital stations there are no frequencies to remember and sets are tuned by station name, so there is no returning on the move.
