Oooh it's Bluetooth as well, you should add that in the header. Fab price. I have my DAB radio on 6Music most of the day

Enjoy listening to the charts with this white DAB radio from Panasonic. The compact design will look tidy on your kitchen worktop. There's no need to worry about accidently splashing it with water, as it's splash-proof. View what tune is coming up next on the LCD display and easily see which station you've selected.

Power from the mains or pop in some batteries and listen from anywhere. Use Bluetooth connectivity to stream internet radio stations from your smartphone. 3W when using AC adaptor and 2W when using battery.

I think it's a great deal given bluetooth connectivity, but only if used on mains power.
As with all DABs battery life is very short.
Thanks LouiseLouise for the tip about adding Bluetooth to the title...agree it is a great additional feature.

I have a Roberts DAB radio and the rechargeable C cell batteries in it last at least a month with my radio being on at least an hour daily.
Just what I'm after, but 3 reviews about sound quality, 2 say it's good, 1 took it back because it was poor. Hmmmm
Which? verdict OK for the kitchen 59%

Clear sound, excellent screen, splashproof, Bluetooth, sleep timer, alarm, portable.

Awkward buttons, erratic volume control, no headphone port, no aux-in, fingerprint magnet, short battery life, no snooze.

Personally think although this looks really stylish anyone would do better buying one of the £35 or less Kitsound Air listings on eBay for those that missed out on the sub £20 offers last December. Rubberised exterior suitably splashproof, bluetooth, good sound and inbuilt rechargeable battery (around 5 hours).
With the multitude of crap non +, DAB only radios that get posted on this site...... It should be noted that this radio has DAB+.
Looks ok for the price.
Good point Biker.Jeff.
Can you pause live radio with this one?

Thanks for this suggestion, just grabbed one of those. I've had a crap bt speaker in my kitchen for a while and was looking for a reasonably priced upgrade!

The instruction manual mentions nothing of Bluetooth only being available on mains power:

It even quotes battery life for Alkaline LR6 of:

Bluetooth - 12 Hours
FM/DAB - 8 Hours
Very good price for a DAB radio with 5 dedicated preset buttons.

Most cheap DAB radios have a fussy way of getting a preset station.
Same price on Amazon, but looks like a 1-2 month wait for delivery.

Yes...noticed Amazon have price matched now but as you say, not in stock.
Thanks
Picked mine up yesterday. Sound is OK but nothing special - fine at low volume but gets shouty and distorted beyond 50‰ volume . Display too small to use as a night time bedroom clock unless it's right next to you. OK as a bathroom radio.
Just collected mine today...small radio but impressed with the weight and build quality. Sound is better than Pure Mini one that this is replacing. Volume knob is a little fiddly though...8.5/10
I got one too, loved it but sent it back as I didn't get signal in my 3rd floor flat
Great price just ordered one.... Looks very stylish & a great brand, just hoping the audio is up to the task!
Just received, fantastic radio for the price, very impressed! Looks even better in the flesh, sound quality spot on with plenty of bass and excellent build quality. Volume levels can go insane for such a compact unit.... Recommended!

Picked one of these up today & I can honestly say it has fantastic sound for it's size. Ample bass especially using Heavy setting and it has a nice tone to it but.......Panasonic you have let me down. I found the menus painfully slow and clunky to use. The buttons are so slow to respond to presses & navigating through channels and menus is excruciatingly slow & laggy On top of this the screen on it's highest setting is way too dim especially when viewed straight on(go figure). The body is a glossy fingerprint magnet and front screen scratches easily. Am so sad having to return it cos the sound is fabulous
