Terrible battery life and doesn't remember the volume level.
It should be cheaper because it isn't DAB+......
Has to be cold from me.

Agree awful battery life and the £17.99 portable one also from Argos is even worse . Go for a decent make or you'll regret it

What is dab+?




A DAB+ radio can receive those stations that are only broadcast in DAB+ and more DAB+ stations are becoming available. DAB+ produces better quality audio with lower bitrates, than plain DAB. Its also more future proof. Also a DAB+ radio can be used abroad in those countries that only use DAB+.
Personally, i wouldn't buy any radio that isn't DAB+... why restrict yourself to DAB only stations !
Bush don't seem to mention DAB+ in the manuals. The way to check is to do a full tune & look to see if it tunes the DAB+ stations which are Union Jack, Magic Chilled, Fun Kids & Jazz FM.

I got a Bush from Argos a few years ago via a deal on here & it has DAB+, I find it had to believe that these newer ones don't.
Good radio, good price, I may buy one this afternoon.

One of the problems i've found, is that non DAB+ radios will tune into these + stations and show them on the display, but they will not play them.
There are still a hell of a lot of DAB radios being sold, that aren't DAB+..... and all too often the retailers and the manufacturers make no mention that they dont recieve +.
Are there any DAB + stations in the UK ?

Yes..... three national ones came out 18 months ago. Another national one Union Jack came out recently. There has also been some local ones.
There will be more national and local + stations coming out.

That's why it's been driving me mad, the station I listen to in the car I couldn't find on my home dab radio, I even plugged in the shed thinking I might catch it outdoors in the garden. Now I know I need dab+.

Which DAB+ station is that ?.......Union Jack ?
Its a great station, i listen to it a lot myself.
Bush, the defunct rubbish brand which is now the Argos own brand. Cold at any price, especially as it does not have DAB +

Ah ok. Thank you.
I got one of these this afternoon. The loudspeaker is pretty tinny, but it is otherwise fine.

I'm not planning on using it with batteries, don't care about DAB+ and the sound is fine when plugged into external speakers (not included) through the (minijack) headphone socket.

It's OK vfm for £20, but you'd have to be crazy to pay 60 quid for it.

thanks to OP

Can the alarm be set for week days only?
Certainly cheap!
I was beginning to get bored of the usual radio stations in this country, until a radio station called Fix Radio came on air across the South East, UK. It's a feel good radio station with great music you simply don't hear on many of the other stations.
