What is so good about DAB ?
#2
The same make, so the sound quality, GUI reviews should be similar



Edited By: FocusZing on Mar 08, 2011 08:33: Similar product should give a quality indication.
#3
On reevoo the magicbox touch doesn't have bad reviews, I should imagine they are basically the same radio with different buttons.
#4
"Bustbuy" - what do they sell?

You can get loads of radio stations that aren't available on FM............ apart from that not much.

Hot for the price of this, but i bet the sound quality is rubbish.

Great timing OP.

Well worth a punt for £17.99 especially going by the reviews on Amazon for other Magibox DAB Radios:

I never said it was the same radio.
The sound may be good.... I simply dont know. But i can make an assumption based on hearing the sound quality of loads of cheap DAB radios.
But its certainly cheap, which is why i voted it hot.

Does anyone know if this has a headphone out?
It appears that it does.I googled it and it lead to one for sale on Ebay and it said:

Key Features
Stereo DAB/FM radio
Blue backlit display
Scrolling text display
DAB auto time update
20 presets
iPod docking option------- (Does this mean ipod docking is an optional extra???)
Charges and plays iPod
One press switch from DAB to FM
Easy to set up and use

Additonal Features
Auto and manual scan
Time and date
Service display option
Headphone socket

Ebay one was twice the price of this.Brilliant price.Voted hot!

Can anyone recommend a good yet reasonably priced Internet radio?

Keep hearing that DAB is something of the past and Internet radio is the future.
#23
found product home page says one version with ipod dock and another without, do have headphone out but no aux in if that's what you're after (like me).
think this one the one without ipod dock, yes?

Suspect DAB is here to stay for the forseeable but it IS outdated technology and the sound quality isn't all it should be.

If you've got an Android phone you can get Internet Radio on that via a free App, in fact probably buying one of those San Francisco phones would be a good way to get it.

Reviews on the product page say:
•"Surprisingly powerful sound from such a small radio. Perfect"
•Great sound and fantastic quality. Set up is so simple. If you are looking for a feature packed DAB radio at a price to fit your pocket you won't go wrong here. This looks fantastic in my kitchen"
At £17.99 I just had to order.
Thanks for the post Sliwka!

Agree about DAB being around for a while yet; internet radios for under 60 quid are still thin on the ground, I use my HTC Wildfire as a portable internet radio around the house.

Sold out.

DAB - it's doomed - a lot better audio quality is streamed from the internet. And from Worldwide

thats fine if you live in a wi-fi area, big city or live inside whetherspoons but for the majority of us we still need a good old fashioned radio and for that then DAB is still the way forward

mines been dispatched :D
#34
Got mine today and first impressions am very impressed. Good sound quality and can pick up my local stations and Radio 5 for the sport perfect, thanks op.:)
#35
Got mine too.Well worth the money.
Only one little thing confused me.I preset some stations and (as per instructions) I tried to select my chosen one by choosing it and pressing select but nothing happened.It just went back to the previous station I had listened to.I worked out I had to press preset again to choose it instead.
