There's a big difference between streaming from your phone to a bluetooth speaker, and using your phone as a controller for a device which does its own streaming. Less battery use, the ability to walk out of range without the stream cutting off, ability to make calls / play games / whatever without the audio going through the speaker, and so on. Streaming from the phone may suit you, but it's not the solution for everyone.


This! I don't think there are many Spotify connect devices at this price point so good deal if that's what you want. Im not sure if connect works without Spotify Premium though, maybe someone can confirm that.


Connect requires premium

That's what I did and I never use it as Google Music is the biggest pile of poo going and Poweramp won't stream to Chromecast.So I have music on my phone that I can't play thorough CA, as I have to upload the tracks to Google, but then when I can be bothered I get the generic version that Google streams rather than the version on my phone.Oh and Google music doesn't allow sorting by folder, pita!Oh and Youtube videos won't stream audio to Chromecast audio either.I bought CA thiking it would be cha-mazing.......it's too locked into Googles infrastructure and I actually despise Google Music and Chromecast Audio now

You can use Poweramp to stream music but not directly from the app. Use Google Home to connect to Chromecast Audio first, then load Poweramp and then you're good to go..I am listening at the moment. However I agree Google Music is seriously limited.

Alexa plays tune-in radio out of the box
I found Alexa has a very limited song list as Amazon Prime member. You have buy Music Unlimited from Amazon to get more songs. So I prefer YouTube videos and songs than Amazon as they are all free.

Hi horsey

So let me get this absolutely straight, are you seriously proposing that potential purchasers of this bargain-basement £39.00 Philips Portable Vintage FM and DAB+ Radio should subsequently go out and blow a further £299.00 on a shiny new pair of Thunder connector headphones for the questionable privilege of listening to the airwaves via this new socket ?

Assuming that I've not totally lost my marbles, a rudimentary grasp of mathematics would tend to suggest that the cost of such headphones would exceed the value of the radio by a ratio of 5 to 1 ? Such expenditure simply wouldn't prove justifiable from my particular standpoint, but as you clearly seem to have more than enough money to burn, then I wish you the very best of luck with your purchase !
Are those dimensions correct ? Nearly 15cm deep ? The photo appears to look much shallower. 21x15x15cm is more like a speaker box dimension.

the absence of a headphone socket would nevertheless still rule this radio out


The retro headphone socket has been replaced with an ultra miniature "Thunder" connector for your listening convenience.

Headphones using the new Thunder connector are available from Philips for a very reasonable £299 per pair.
Hi Biker.Jeff

Thanks for the info and I stand corrected, but from reading others comments on this post, these facts do not appear to have been made at all clear, which is somewhat unfortunate. However, the absence of a headphone socket would nevertheless still rule this radio out from my perspective, because the inclusion of such a useful facility would only cost pence to implement by the manufacturers and rather smacks of 'penny-pinching' imho ! Ymmv.

Sorry but there are hundreds of these on ebay. Some good some not so great, I have one it does the trick for long drives otherwise I dont care. As for putting in a Pioneer or something it depends on how long u intend to keep the car
I wouldn't bother. I have one and it's awful.
Looks like an intimate toy. Paid £75 for a Pioneer stereo with Bluetooth, USB and SD card with CD and radio. Works flawlessly with hands free.

I just video chat now when I'm driving.

well good, it's most annoying when it happens, you can never tell who's approved and who isn't :(
How do you change tracks on that roidmi if you play music via USB stick? It just looks like you need to use an app which defeats the purpose of hands free!

Just out of interest, did the Kindle package fit through the letterbox or did it arrive in an insanely oversized box?
Pretty sure it wouldn't fit through a letterbox...admittedly we don't have one for me to check it with and anyone delivering anything just opens our front door and puts whatever it is inside so would need to be in a really, really, really humongous box not to fit through the front door...lol...
However have just measured the box it came in and the approximate dimensions are as follows:
20.5cms x 16cms x 11cms (W X D X H)
Not sure if they use the same company for delivery throughout the whole of the UK but hope I don't give you nightmares by saying it was delivered by Yodel.
Hope I've been of some help but just let me know if there's anything else you'd like to ask.
Oh actually know some people were asking about what "year" of Kindle it was and on the reverse of the Kindle box near the bottom of the one I've received it says 2016 Amazon.com

So, just an oversized box then! X)
Thanks for replying. :)

Thanks for the info, I'll ring them again with my 'Take no doo doo' pants on, ready to kick some!

Don't know if it would be of any help but you could try mentioning either Breach of Contract in that you subscribed to the offer on the basis of receiving the Kindle and that as this formed part of the contract they have broken the contract by not supplying the Kindle or false advertising for exactly the same reason that you took up the offer based on the advertised offer of a Kindle.

As I say don't know if it is of any help or more to the point if it would work...
tiggerloveslife
evilhomeruk
I got this offer previously and 28 days, well 42 days later, the Kindle still hasn't arrived. Coming from a different supplier explains why when I ring up, they take your number to pass onto the warehouse and the warehouse never ring you back.

Agree am happy too. Too much bass for me at low volume levels
Pretty happy with this internet/dab/fm radio. Sound is a bit average, deffo need to set your own bass & treble settings rather than using the various preset EQ ones.
Everything works as it should, cant complain for only £57.

Don't waste time or money. Units like this one (from china) are bad quality and terrible Ui. You'll regret it.
Bikertov
Makes you wonder how the car manufacturers can charge so much for their units ...
Because they're much better audio and build quality than the likes of this, besides the shafting of the consumer!
Bikertov
Makes you wonder how the car manufacturers can charge so much for their units ...

Licensing. That GPS receiver in your car? That has patents and those patents need licensing for example. Other than that, better build quality (more expensive components) and also guaranteed supply of the units for X amount of years.

But yeah, still overpriced when taking that into account...simple reason is planned obsolescence, make you buy a new car than repair your otherwise perfectly functioning older vehicle which isn't earning them any money.
Sliwka
Do I need adapter for a Focus mk2? If yes, Which one?
You'll need a harness adaptor for power and controls. They are about a fiver off the bay
Most cars will need a fascia plate adaptor to allow the 2Din unit to fit your vehicle dashboard, most vehicles have a single din unit fitted, or a din and a half.

You will also need the correct wiring loom adaptor if you want a nice neat factory install, many of these adaptors can be purchased from ebay or even Halfords.

Just type in the make, model and year of car along with the words 'Fascia Plate' and 'Wiring Harness' or 'ISO Lead'.

Yeah, I had trouble setting it up. Also, when the alarm did sound off, I didn't know how to turn it off. Kept on triggering the snooze. While in the shower I can hear the sound of birds in my room. But I got the hang of it eventually. The manual is very helpful. Being male, I thought who needs the manual, it's not rocket science.

I can upload an image to prove it but I don't know how. Can you advice me?

No need for proof, sounds about right tbh.

I had 3 Dab radios which are now useless since Dab+
How are they now useless? I'm interested to know as I have a pre-DAB+ radio that's 10 years old and still working.
Because most of the channels are gone so don't expect Planet Rock.
Voted hot just because it's Alba.
I had listed here Medion Dab + radio which was £17 plus postage. Its is not DAB + so cold.

Lucky I didn't pay for them.
Free gift from Aldi for refusing to refund a faulty computer mouse still under waranty.

No mention if these radios are Dab+

The tech. is crap and out of date before it even launched.
We need satellite radio, not highly compressed rubbish.

You're right I also had a look at the manuals and didn't find any information, so my guess is these radio don't support DAB+.

I have the Pure Elan E3 Portable DAB+/FM Radio - Dove Grey557/5585 it used to be £49.99 sadly it's gone up to £59.99. Great radio though, very quick to boot and has a nice OLED colour display.

Just bought one - seems good to me. Plenty of DAB stations and the sound is much better than I thought it would be.

You can't beat a nice bush !!
I bought one 2 weeks ago, no problems. Bargain at £25 and works good with batteries also.
Picked up one of these today, it will be going back.
Very cheap build quality and poor tuning tuning capability.
I cannot even pick up TalkSport, where my Pure and Roberts DAB radios do with ease.
Not even worth £25, more like a £9.99 purchase with 10 gallons of petrol.

This doesnt have Union Jack. Checked just now.
Do you still get all the DAB stations listed on the link below with the exception of the 4 DAB+ stations Jazz FM, Magic Chilled, Jazz FM & Fun Kids? That will be definite proof of the lack of DAB+ on this radio. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sound_Digital
There are only those 4 DAB+ stations in existence so no great loss.
You'll also notice that all the DAB stations on there are Mono & DAB+ is stereo.
The UK's adoption of DAB was a mistake as it's 1980s technology using MP2 compression. DAB+ is more widely used in europe. With a good signal FM stereo sounds far better than original DAB. Weak signal on FM is a bit of hiss, on DAB you get bubbling mud.
Ive never seen the Christian station or Premier Praise (not that i've looked) but the rest are on this radio.

Can't believe it's gone negative.

Was just referencing the price, because I went straight to Amazon to look at the price before reserving from Argos.

Not sure if we understand each other. This kit is an Argos brand and only available from an Argos channel. When it appears on Amazon, it is via a reseller who has puchased from an Argos channel (including retail channel) and added a margin. This is not a valid price comparison. You could personally buy this item at £24.99 from Argos and throw it on Amazon as a direct or fulfilled-Amazon sale at say £45. This does not mean that the item is worthy of the £45 pricetag nor does it indicate that the direct-from-Argos price is bargainous or realistic. The Amazon price comparison is not just irelevant but also actively misleading in such circumstances.
Every since I got an Amazon Echo Dot my Pure Elan DAB radio hasn't been used. I just ask Alexa to play the radio station I want and she does it.
Just a heads-up, this radio does not support DAB+

DAB radio? Dude we have apps now this is not 2006 or something.
You'd be crazy to pick this over say a 2nd hand P9 Lite. The specs are awful.

I am actually going to trade in my p9 lite. It's a great phone, have had it for six months, and yes it is better in most usual ways than this phone, but the DAB has really impressed me, as well as the battery life and nice big screen on this LG Stylus2.

I think there might be a reason why it's the only one.......hmmmmm.....
I have a HTC 700TV (sold in the UK as a virgin lobster) and that had DAB (and TV, BBC1,BBC2,ITV and C4) that never took off.
Interesting, does it still work for radio and TV ??
Genuinely interested, just had a quick look at it on YouTube
The TV bit went years ago, but mine is still going strong for DAB functionality. The only other bit that was removed/stolen by Virgin Mobile was the remaining £7 credit I had on it, as I forgot to keep it active.

Thanks for the info, interesting stuff

I only ask because this is the 3rd Medion post in........ how long?

I've never had any of their products so I don't know how good (or bad) they are. That said, the people will speak up if the quality is pants.
Why and why would I want this when you can get all the dab and radio stations on your phone or tablet??? Very 19th century IMO!

About £10 on ebay. Bought one a couple of years ago and still charges and works fine.

I've had a pair of these for over two years and perform very well. Paid double the above I think.
Worthwhile pointing out to the uninitiated that these are not wireless Bluetooth, but the older wireless FM (as per title) so need mains power for the transmitter whilst in use. They're designed for using with the TV indoors.

Because radios will work far longer, don't need a mobile signal, don't use any data allowance and far easier than any app. They are much easier to use by people and dropping a cheap pmr radio and smashing it up is cheaper to fix.

yes, provided you have WiFi or mobile signal that's a good solution, if you're in the countryside that may not be so practical though.

I would never buy ones that dont have privacy mode - so many people/shops have them now you'll constantly be saying "what?" "nothing" "I thought you said" "no I didnt" "oh must be someone else"
privacy mode.
all day long.
PMR446 radios generally does not really do encryption at this price level.
Privacy mode usually refers to the sub channels, assuming you have both radios set to the same sub channel here the radio mixes into your speech a low frequency audio tone. The receiver will mute out any transmitting on the same frequency that don't have that sub tone present.
It's not really a "privacy mode" there is no privacy at all. If you tell you radio to ignore sub channels you will hear anything on that frequency regardless of what the transmitter has sent as a privacy code setting.
You might get voice inversion but that's only a case of filtering the audio but that's very weak. Any radio that does it can also convert it back to listen on anyone's calls.
Go to digital pmr446 and you can on more expensive units get an encryption boards that do some basic scrambling. Certainly enough to make the audio illegible to the average user.
However none of this gets round the fact there are only a small number of freqencies to use. Privacy mode or encryption actually makes it more likely two people will be transmitting at the same time as the sub channel/scrambling may mean the user may not even know someone else outside their group is already transmitting in the same channel.
This is why I like my binatone 950 radios, they have the hidden channel 9 that nobody else seems to use.

The Radio - Keeping us in Touch with the World

Way back in 1864 James Clerk Maxwell proved that electromagnetic waves could exist in free space and radio technology was born. In simple terms, radios allow information to be transmitted through space by modulating the volume, frequency and pulse of these electromagnetic waves to create the sounds we hear when we switch on our radio. When a radio receiver, whether digital or analogue, is turned on and tuned in it selects the wave bands allocated to different channels giving us instant access to a world of entertainment.

A Brief Look at the Development of the Radio

Like all new developments the road to a radio in every home went in stops and starts and taking in all the physics and mathematics involved is only for the most dedicated of historians. But a very simple timeline runs something like this:

radio

Radio Types

FM Radio - Original commercial radios used AM or medium wave frequency but this was subject to interference and the waves became very crowded as listening to the radio became increasingly popular. FM or frequency modulation radio was patented in 1933 by Edwin Armstrong and first used in the United States on pioneer music stations. Because of its better sound quality FM was used for most music broadcasts. FM radio stations use VHF frequencies with each country having its own frequency band while individual radio stations are allocated a band within that. Initially, FM broadcasting was used to transmit high-quality orchestral background music in stores and offices or classical music to an elite audience of urban listeners. In the late 1960s, however, FM radio was adopted by fans of alternative rock music and by the early 1990s AM Radio had been largely abandoned. The growth of FM Radio also saw the growth of pirate radio stations, such as the iconic Radio Caroline which broadcasted under the nose of the authorities from a succession of ships anchored in international waters. The smaller size of transmitters and the lower cost of the equipment needed for FM broadcasting is what made this exciting period of radio history possible.

Digital Radio - Is the use of digital technology to transmit across the radio spectrum. By digitising and compressing analogue signals the number of radio channels can be increased along with an improvement in audio quality. The problem of channels fading out or being lost when on the move was removed with the introduction of digital radio.

Digital Audio Broadcasting - In 2012 four digital wireless radio systems were recognised by the International Telecommunication Union. One of these was the European system of DAB or Digital Audio Broadcasting. DAB systems can provide both terrestrial and satellite services and are typically designed for handheld mobile devices. Despite its many potential benefits, the introduction of DAB was slower than it could have been due to a lack of global agreement on standards. DAB receivers hit the market in 1999 and within six years 500 million people were within a coverage area and around 1,000 DAB stations could be received. Despite this, sales of DAB radios only really took off in the United Kingdom and Denmark. In today's market though DAB radios are going from strength to strength.

If you are considering buying a new radio or update an existing model you shouldn't really consider any type other than a DAB receiver. This is because:

  • You will have an enjoyable listening experience that is free of interference or the classic hiss of analogue radios.
  • You'll have instant auto-tuning and station scanning wherever you are.
  • You will have a much wider choice of stations. The sound quality of whatever they're broadcasting is greatly enhanced by DAB.
  • DAB technology allows the receiver to lock on to the strongest signal available and ignore everything else.
  • As many as 10 radio stations can operate in the airspace previously taken by one FM channel so much more choice of listening is instantly available to you.
  • Within a large town or city in the United Kingdom there's a good chance you'll have up to 50 DAB stations to choose from.
  • Some DAB radios come with displays that give information about the programme or the music being played.
  • You can select and save your favourite channels to access at the touch of a button.
  • The latest DAB radios come with new functions like pause, rewind and record giving you a much more immersive and convenient experience.

If your DAB radio also has internet connectivity or Bluetooth it can be connected to a Wi-Fi enabled computer or your smartphone letting you play your favourite music or connect to your favourite radio station from just about anywhere in the world.

Are There any Disadvantages to Choosing a DAB Radio?dab radio

The popularity of DAB radios for their ease of use and quality of sound is growing year on year but there are one or two things you should be aware of before choosing one.

  • Although digital coverage in the United Kingdom is extensive, there are still small pockets where transmissions can't be received, especially in remoter areas. So, it is worth double-checking that your area can receive DAB signals. Finding this out is simple. All you have to do is head to Get Digital Radio and enter your postcode.
  • If your radio is going to be used in a basement area of your home or if you live in an urban area that is very densely built up then you might also encounter some reception problems.

Canny shoppers know that prices vary throughout the year and will wait to get the best price on something they really want. So, when is the best time to grab a radio bargain?

January Sales is the time to snap up left-over Christmas stock from the shelves or look out for good as new deals on unwanted Christmas gifts or a radio that's been replaced. A great place to find these deals are on second-hand sites like eBay. And, of course, there are also the traditional January Sales. Mid-price range electronics are often discounted in February to make space for newer stock coming on to the market. Although sale seasons are not as clearly defined as they used to be, many retailers still stick to the tradition of the August sale.

Furthermore, UK retailers have taken to heart the American tradition of Black Friday and Cyber Monday at the end of November and the beginning of December. Good promotional prices will be available on radios both online and on the high street.
