Priced as £29.99 but scanning as £10. A bargain for DAB and Bluetooth.

​Meir Park, Stoke on Trent. They were in a locked glass display with other electronics, he got me one from storage so I don't know how many they have.

Looks neat too
I got one for £17.49 but will be taking it back today. Power supply 'screams', loses alarm settings when AC power is disconnected - even when batteries are in the unit and display flashes annoyingly when alarm goes off.

And it looks and feels cheap and nasty.

But if you can live with those things, decent buy for £10.

Why is the display so tiny? The DAB and bluetooth are nice touches, but it should work as a clock first and foremost
 
Heat DAB for £10! Owner's manual here.

Aldi reductions are store specific (manager's decision). Also stock dependent - obviously. Good luck if you're after one but be aware of a high probability of disappointment.
What is the purpose of the Bluetooth?

This is the standard display used in a generic DAB chipset, you can see it in many cheap DAB radios.

to stream music from smartphone. With only a mono speaker quality won't be great though.

I had to return two of these, one after the other, because both had the problem with the high-pitched whistling noise from the PSU, when plugged in. It is only audible when the PSU is plugged into the unit and the unit is drawing power. I suspect the reason these are reduced is because so many people are having the same issue. May not be a problem if you can't hear high-pitched noises!
can it read SSD cards to play some music??? thaks!:p
any more info about what specs it have available? pleeez
