Christopher, Camberley Spoken-word listener

Score 5.0/10
Good points:
Small and light, reasonable sound quality. "Lock" button prevents inadvertent use when travelling.
Bad points:
Struggles to pick up some DAB ensembles, reception is far worse that on a similar Roberts DAB portable I have, which is about 7 years older. No RDS on FM, no tone control. Very quirky way of tuning/using presets other than the first 3 which have dedicated buttons. No alarm function despite DAB having built-in time feature.
