Michael, CHELTENHAM Classical music lover

Score 6.0/10
Good points:
Good aesthetic design and CD and wi-fi audio quality.
Bad points:
Radio reception. I was disappointed with the unique aerial which proved inadequate and the fact that there is no co-axial aerial connection. I got this product to replace an older SONY FM product which had worked well with my roof aerial through a co-axial connection. Had I realised I couldn't use this I would not have bought the product. I had to extend the SONY aerial in order to get adequate reception of FM and DAB.
I have several other DAB devices including portable radios and none of them suffer from such poor reception. This is a very big negative with this product which is otherwise very well designed. I don't understand why SONY have been so remiss in what is a fundamental design problem i.e. radio reception.

emil, sleaford, Lincs Pop, rock or dance fan

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Great sound and design
Bad points:
Let down by wire aerial - DAB coverage in Lincolnshire is not the best but my DAB alarm gets BBC stations without problem whereas CMT-CX5BIP is hit and miss, also some background noise on FM desoite trying all positions for the wire. Really needs to have an optional upgraded aerial available.
