Super price for a DAB radio. Be aware the ChargePAK C6L only needed for portable listening will cost another £25 as well,
Good find heat added but how many tesco stores even keep these anymore,better chance of getting a cheap coat these days.
Which store was this in please?
TIP: If you're planning on getting this to record your favourite programs to listen to later, bear in mind one caveat I have found. Its recording memory will hold only so much depending on the bitrate of the station. So first google the bitrate of your fave station, then have a look below how much it can record for you before taking the plunge.

64 kbit/s = 90 mins
80 kbit/s = 75 mins
96 kbit/s = 60 mins
112 kbit/s = 50 mins
128 kbit/s = 45 mins
160 kbit/s = 35 mins
192 kbit/s = 30 mins

Cracking price for this radio though. Heat:)

***boyee*** Dab will only sound great if you are over 80 years old and have ears full of wax. Dab uses MP2. BBC stations use low bit rates in Mono,when the same broadcast is in stereo on other platforms such as FM/Freeview/Freesat/Sky

Great radio for the kitchen ,had one for six years, been covered in fat, paint and parrot droppings, just wipes off.

Shame not online otherwise I would be buying another one.

I've had one for a few years - good as a general radio, but no good if you want to listen in bed at night - even with volume on lowest level it's still too loud in middle of night. I've got an Intempo radio for bedroom - with that the volume can be adjusted to be much lower. The charge pack that can be purchased for £25-£30 does last quite a long time - I use it in the garden, sometimes for hours on end with no problem, although it is quite heavy - weighing in at 1375g with charge pack.

with most comercial stations now switched to mono transmission, DAB has lost any remainings of sense.

***witekgl*** You are bang on the nail. Instead of A BAD (dab backwards) radio, some bluetooth speakers and a chosen station via listen live from a net stream is likely to sound better
.... What? DAB is going mono? Who the hell decided that was a good idea

It depends entirely on the provider. Looks like BBC uses stereo en.wikipedia.org/wik…DAB
I always thought it was a bit of a FAD.

***dreamager*** I'll be truthful I got rid of an Arcam Dab tuner a very long time ago for the reasons I described earlier. If things have changed in the interim, that is great. The safe option is to try DAB out in your own home for real, with the confirmed option to return it if need be. I'll have a good look to see what the latest DAB bit rates are
It all depends on what sort of listening you do but if, like me, your first action in the morning is to reach over and switch on Radio 4, then for a shade over 22 quid, this offer is fantastic value. I don't know if it's any use for listening to music but for primarily spoken radio like BBC Radio 4; BBC Radio 4 Extra; BBC Radio 5 Live and BBC Radio 5 Live Sports Extra in your home, I don't think you could do much better.

perfect for my needs. Need to find one near Berkshire or crawley now
I love the recording feature on this, I love listening to LBC but unfortunately miss my favourite broadcasters through the day so this would have been ideal, that if it would be able to record 2+ hours ?
First of all, i own this now for a couple of years, the rubbery coating has become very sticky, so every time you touch it your fingers get sticky. Now for the sound, it has good bass and midrange, but due to dab system using low bit rate mp2 compression, treble is crap, but for listening to likes of LBC,its fine. Good price, i payed £70.Also Classic fm used to transmit at 160kbits, which sounded decent, now they have lowered it, so string instruments sound terrible.

I've had a white one with a rubbery coating for a few years, it went sticky and gathered dust and fluff. I actually love my radio and use it for world service and 4extra. Tried some stuff called "invisible windows" and it got most of the rubber gunge off in a few minutes and left normal plastic underneath. I expect the ingredients of "invisible windows" is like meths, ammonia etc.
The old FM signal was 100 times better than all this Dab stuff. Some days I get nothing but interference and can't listen to the radio using my Dab radio no matter how I try.
Thats not old price.
I have seen this on ebay at same price before.
