But back in stock for me (Linlithgow) so I just ordered one. Have some heat.

DROPS DAB CONNECTION
be aware there are a lot of returns from this due to poor quality dabs reception, scan and working one day, switch on the next day and it sounds like its underwater! returned mine after Christmas and paid £23 for a Tesco own brand pastel coloured one which works well.

No problems here so far, we have two for the children, reception is better than my Pure clock radio.

I have one. used it every day for 5 days and is still OK. cracking price for this.

Not in stock in and around Glasgow west, Braehead, Clyebank, etc. Voted cold as I do think this is a bit of a wild goose chase.

wow an Argos deal were the 10 nearest stores to me have it in stock

I have one and, as others have intimated, unless you are line of sight from a transmitter, forget it. It only works in one room here on DAB - lucky that it's the kitchen, as that is where it was purchased for. It doesn't work even there on FM.
No external aerial socket. No headphone socket (although I suspect that it would be easy enough to add both of these, if needed). But - when it works, the sound is reasonable for a radio of this size.

I appreciate the repost. When I checked last night it was out of stock in my local Argos. Checked again this morning and back in stock and reserved. Thanks!

I have this and it's great. Good price!

I got this the other day but had to return it. It seemed to be a brilliant radio and I was really happy with it until the mains lead started clicking, after about 5 minutes of use it just stopped working. Shame as I was initially impressed. I didn't want to just use batteries since people have said it "eats them" and a replacement lead was £10.

got one last week , so far very impressive

I got one for my kitchen to replace my Sony DAB which I use for portable purposes. Compared to the Sony one this Bush one kept losing signal initially but since it has been fine. Looks brilliant for £14.99, definitely a hot deal.

picking mine up today .... already have 3 x Pure digital radios and love em. This one is for my mum (_;)

bought this this week. It's really good. feels well made. really easy to use and fantastic value for money.

I bought one for £20 not long a go and have been very impressed. Sound is good and had no signal quality problems at all! Would recommend.

Got 5 Argos with in 10 miles and all out of stock.

Cracking little DAB radio this.

Bought one of these the other day and it sounds great :-)

Thanks for reposting as this was oos the other day in all my local stores and now there is stock available. Reserved

Just for information, using 4 C rechargeables with 3000 mAh capacity, I ran this radio on DAB (which uses the most power) at full volume for 18.5 hours before the batteries died, and it is a quality radio. The only thing missing which would have made it perfect is an earphone socket, but I knew that before I bought it.

Mains lead is a universal fitment and probs just £2 on ebay. If it was under Guarantee FREE! Very confused?

Cheapest I could find for a 6v was £10. Store weren't able to exchange as there was none in stock at the time. I've reserved another one as more have come in now. I'm not being tight but I either got the radio with everything working and didn't want the hassle of rechargeable batteries or mucking around with guarantees. I don't mind getting another lead in months to come if I have to but not as soon as I bought it and also wanted the option of using with mains and batteries. Thanks for your advice anyhow but what's the confusion?

great price if you like old tech & and are not familiar with the interweb thingy...best to get in quick before the local old people's homes snap them all up; they love the old retro stuff...

Wow! seems as though you are certainly up to date with technology with your 'interweb thingy'

Sounds good to me for a kitchen

Same could be said for DAB could'nt it?

I have used mine since Xmas day and not had a problem. I don't live in sight of the transmitter and live in a valley at the bottom of a big hill. Really pleased with it, so far so good!!

Cool! I just thought with it being new they would have exchanged it friend. As you say item was out of stock so not possible. That's the bit that kind of confused me.
I've had a very smilar one for near two years now and its perfect! Use it for absolute 80's listening and for listing to Radio Stoke for Crewe Alexandra football coverage. I got my lad an ash black one off ebay for £19.99 who is at uni in Manchester. Brand new Argos ebay end of line, and looks ace in black, Feb Birthday present. Just ordered one of these for bedside at snippet price as not worth carrying up and down stairs at this bargain price. Mines been outide in the summer from 9am 'til 1am next day and never lost frequency once. That's why come Saturday I'll have purchased 3. Good lick with your newbie. ;-)

Sorry *luck*

Cheers billyboyjones. Just glad they got more in stock now. Nice to hear good reviews about it too.

I have a Sony radio 6 volt, I adapted a Usb charger with the power plug and it works fine.

It's cheap and convenient, I think most of us are aware of standalone devices that stream internet radio, but they aren't this cheap. And for years I've held off buying a DAB radio and said to myself that I can use my PC, Laptop, Phone, Tablet, Sky box etc but I never do listen to the radio like that.

It's good, but the lack of a headphone/aux jack is a deal breaker for me so will be going back, shame as I quite like how it looks and works (sound is ok for speech, not so great for 1xtra).

I know I should of read through the thread properly before buying it, I just assumed it would come with a jack like every poundshop radio manages to fit in.

I got an internet radio for £30 with alarm. Works well. I also had a DAB radio which was very poor. I believe it needed a dedicated proper hi-fi radio aerial. I see no point in paying for this hence for me DAB is a waste of time in situations where internet radio can be used......

Where did you get an internet radio for £30?

I used to have a one that I bought from Ebuyer very cheaply but it didn't live very long and now I can't find one for less than £70 anywhere.

Disgo brand (can be found on ebay); looks like they have been discontinued. Cheapes I can find is now circa £60 - thought they would be cheaper by now....

Wife picked ours up yesterday. Defo not the build quality of the other two previously purchased Bush dabs radios we have but still imho a bargain. Sound is clear and I am happy. It does not have an aux port and also the power cable is not like the other two se own. Still worth the money but if you want better build for a ficer more go ob ebay and get a black ash one like I did in December for £19.99

One minute out of stock, then back in. Currently in West Midlands seems to be a fair bit of availability.

Bargain I think for the price, albeit as mentioned a lack of connectivity.

I see it is in the new catalogue, but with a different front, but basically the same at £39.99 I think. Will be £19.99/£14.99 by the time the next catalogue comes out in 6 months time. Just play the Argos game.
