Not bad for a Philips DAB radio!

A good price for a Philips. There are some great stations on DAB. Voted hot

Depends on your location. Check out battery life before buying. I retired my last Philips DAB as it cost me fortune in batteries ie. 6 D batteries per month at about 4 hours per week.

reduced in asda govan to £17!

got mine for £20 in lincoln

Surely it's mains powered?

That's one of the problems with DAB it seems to use a lot of power for some reason.

thanks

Beware -----Digital Radio are ok with main power but cost fortune to run on battery:thinking:

Originally it was because 6 (decent) rechargeable D batteries and a charger were to expensive. I then bought a stock of Philips D batteries from Richer Sounds at £1 for 6. :whistling:

Has anyone bought this model and can provide a view on it?

I bought it and I'm happy with it. I bought it for in work and the only quibble I got is some channels are quiet compared to others. I work in a noisy environment and some channels I like ie. Talkport ,I can barely hear, but most are loud and clear. It's my first DAB radio so I don't know if that's the norm.

None in Sheffield Handsworth store, shame as I really wanted one.

This is still current....saw today and was going to repost it, until I saw this one

Loads in the Folkestone branch

Based on the photo this looks like the Philips AE5200 so a good price as it normally costs around £40
