Barry, Widnes Gadget lover

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Sound quality is very good. There are three tonal settings which can be adjusted according to what you are listening to. The volume control is accurate and progressive unlike the ones on cheaper radio sets. There is a priority button which can be set to return instantly to your favourite station no matter where you are. Digital scanning picks up stations easily and these can be stored into memory
Bad points:
The radio does not stand up! It has to be used at an angle using the pull out support at the rear. This makes it difficult to see the display screen unless you are stood over the radio.
