First of all.
2.1 Stereo, so three speakers, not single one like most of them this days.
There is a little subwoofer on the bottom.
Sound quality it's just amazing, especially considering price tag.
Personally own customised set of Q acoustics 5.1 cinema speakers, and Bose headphones so I know a little bit about sound quality.
This little Radio surprised me so much that I've dropped my jaw few hours ago and still can't find it.
I can also compare it to Anker Soundcore speaker and one of this popular Retro Radios - beats them booth.
- Sound quality is just perfect to listen all day long. Treble are great, Mid good as well, Bass is not to boomy (not like those Retro radios from link above). Perfect for background music*
- Equaliser (Bass 0-7, Treble 0-7, Loudness on/off)
- DAB+, so future proof
- Remembers preset stations after power cut
- Looks good. Not to retro, not super modern just as it should
- Bluetooth pairs easily, works well
- Aux in
- Led-lit volume knob and display with 4 Brightness settings (High, Mid, Low, Off)
- DAB reception seems to be OK. Planet Rock works like charm in my area while most radios struggles to play it
- Displays signal errors which helps to find best position for aerial
- 3 Years warranty (really unusual this days)
- Power supply 2A, 5V, which confirms 10W total power
- Power supply on the plug, not build in, but at least cable is long enough, about 1.5m
- Can't be used as portable as there is no option for batteries.
- No USB
- Headphones doesn't work with it - "OK with good functionality but unfortunately has very poor quality headphone output - very tinny and distorted"
Worth to mention
- After power cut still needs to be switched on manually - can't be placed in hard to reach area
- Unknown brand, but few years back no one heard about Anker, Medion, Xiaomi, Huawei
