The FM radio works as well as most portable FM radios I’ve tried, (with the expected FM hiss). It has RDS so I can see which station is tuned in, but when you add an FM station to the preset list it stores the frequency not the RDS station name, which is a bit of a disappointment. The DAB/DAB+ radio produces crisp sound when there is a strong signal (in my case, when outside, but not indoors). You can store presets and this time the DAB station name is used. Of course, if DAB reception is not good the sound breaks up and can drop entirely which is annoying and there is no option but switch to FM. This is a problem with DAB, but it would be nice if you could link presets so when a DAB is low signal it automatically switches to the associated FM.
The unit has a sleep mode to switch off after a certain time (if going to sleep with earphones on is your thing) and it has two alarms. When the unit is on and you press the off button once it goes into standby mode (press twice and it switches off entirely). In standby mode the screen shows the time, and it will switch on and sound a buzzer or switch to FM or DAB when the alarm time is reached. There is no external speaker, so you need to have your earphones on to hear the alarm! I guess this is useful if you are listening to one station and want a reminder to change to another station at a particular time.
I have only used it a couple of days so I don’t know what the battery is like. So far it has only had one charge, so at the moment it looks good.
The cons. When the unit switches on it always starts at volume 04 which is inaudible (you need something like 12). It would be nice if it switched on with the volume setting you last used (after all it uses the last DAB station you last used). A cheap case would be nice.
The receiver works well butt the signal must be strong.
Not indicated if you want to use it on a car.
The battery is expected to last almost 11 hours but I was not able to play it longer than six hours (still good for me).
Software could freeze on power on; in this case it is sufficient to execute e reset using a pin. The price on Amazon is almost 50% less than on Majority official site. For me at that price it is a good deal; probably 90 pounds are to much.
