Use the product code T043313 and select collect in store.

Note: From reading around this doesnt have Listen Again in its current format, only BBC podcast access (but I may be wrong as havent picked up mine yet).

Looks like an excellent deal, the only thing putting me off is the fact that its DAB and WiFi which means power hungry energy eater.

:-(

good deal

Shrek - please read the IMPORTANT bit of my post - it says you need to go to the last stage of checkout to get this price. Sometimes I wonder .... :-)

p.s. dont forget Quidco/topcashback (possibly 5%?)

Don't forget quidco for another 5%! Fantastic buy.

Couldn't collect in store so ordered for delivery @


Items: £79.00 Delivery charges: £3.50 TAKE VAT: -£1.68 Technology Sale: -£39.50 Order Total: £41.32

What sort of internet stations can it play? Shoutcast? .m3u? .pls?

Great price for DAB & WiFi Radio, reserved one!
Thank you

Just ordered. Great deal, I forgot Quidco though :x

webuser.co.uk/pro…lus

- if it is as appears the rebadged Clarus I can vouch for the quality of the product. A bit fiddly to use at first but once mastered it's very good indeed.

thanks ordered and remembered quidco. need a radio for my kitchen. :thumbsup:

Taken a punt on this for the kitchen too - store pick up dates seem pretty mean though:thinking:

I have got one for the kitchen too. There is a review on the m£s website which appears pretty favourable but does highlight the lack of a pause button.

Thanks

Thanks!

Ordered one for store pickup, though forgot quidco Provided a good reason to use a £30 M&S gift card we received for Christmas, so this little baby has cost us less than a tenner!

I have seperate DAB/FM and WiFi radios in my kitchen so this will be an excellent replacement for them. Heat added..

this maybe a stupid question but as its wifi can it play all my music on my pc or just internet radio

Just ordered one, seems a great little box

Thanks!

Ordered :thumbsup: H + R added

See http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/568850/m-s-fm-dab-wifi-internet-radio-inst/showpost.php?p=7362295&postcount=2 - there is the manual. I just had a read on your behalf and it seems it can do both (if you use something like windows media player)

Internet radios are fantastic if you've got a wireless modem.Much better than DAB & the choice of stations is worldwide:)

Are the 8,000 odd radio stations all preset?
Basically can you tune it into any internet radio station, using the web address/IP address, or a .pls file link?

Thanks just ordered one.

Note: This only has 8 intenet station presets. (I find I use 10-15 stations on my MusicPal although this does include BBC FM + DAB stations which can live on the other non internet presets)

Please post #2 for the manual.
