Hi, can this be powered by mains?
Is the sound really tinny?

It could be worth noting "special offer 2"

"Receive £5 off when you trade in an analogue radio and purchase a digital radio that is under £80. Trade in is available in store only. Offer ends 21st January 2011."

One trip to Poundland could possibly get you this DAB for £16.

Was £29.99 last week - so not really half price - however I bought one last week for a present - so have already reserved mine at about 7am so will take back the one I bought - a tenner saved is still a tenner

I'd also like to know this

thanks op
gonna get one for my mum

Every store within a 20 mile radius of Birmingham/Coventry is showing "Available 29-30 Dec from store". Therefore i would guess price would be back to normal by then - I wish they would just show in stock (physically there) or out of stock (Not physically there!) like they used to!

tempted

Does it work on mains or just batteries?

good price, thanks

Anybody know if its mains powered

Just picked the last one at Goole for me old mum, can confirm comes with ac adaptor for mains

Phew! Lucky you said that milkmanchris. I nearly cancelled my order. There is no mention of mains powered.

Any comments on sound quality?

etc.. etc.. Google shows you have repeated this 25 times to date. It wasn't that funny the first time.

Still not funny now and he'll say it again in another post.

I got a DAB radio from Aldi, I set my alarm in the morning for Planet Rock with Alice Cooper.

Don't know if DAB+ will be any better but the quality is 128kb/s. Still sounds good on these sort of portable radios though.

Says there's 1 in stock at both stores near me but can't collect til 29th December which is annoying as would like to give as xmas gift - but then I go to reserve it any way and it says it cannot be reserved.

Strange.

Looks like a big advertised offer but very few around, just tried numerous stores like Starlet and although stating you can order one into store when you try to it says out of stock...

Nice one for those who got one....

I reserved mine as soon as i got the email this morning, perfect for my husband for christmas, bargain!!!

Any comments on sound quality?

its had a rating of 13.5 stars out of 15 on the website, sound was also mentioned as good.

Got one yesterday but think i'll be returning it.

Sound is not too bad, no noticeable bass, speakers are tiny but volume goes quite loud.

It justs looks and feels cheap. The white control panel on top does it no favours at all, should've been black. It's bulkier than I thought but really light and feels like it's mostly hollow inside. Won't add any class to your bedroom/kitchen/living room that's for sure.
