Adrian, Leicestershire Music fan

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Very good sound quality for something this size. Bought for my 4 year old Daughter who loves it and can easilly use it.
Bad points:
CD/OFF/RADIO switch is quite tricky to use. Have also found with MP3 discs that the songs have to be organised into a folder, or only 1 song will play over and over again.

Anthony, Lynton Music AND spoken word

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Reviewer left no comment
Bad points:
1) Sensitivity (reception) in rural areas not very good. Longer antennae?
2) Knob to change from CD to radio too small and fiddly. If you are trying to turn it without holding the set steady, the set moves.

Sue, Virginia Water Music lover

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Modern design, (different!!), I use it tor Classic FM practially all day and it sounds fine. When I can understand how to work it, the programme memory is fine, but sometimes I wonder whose memory is best! It is great because I can now receive FM and MW, which I couldn''t before. The CD player is excellent.
Bad points:
It probably is not the radio but me, but I find I have to read its instructions several times before they actually work.... when they do, it's great. I hope just teething troubles for us both.
