Gadget show review.
Voted best mid range DAB Radio…ion

Just bear in mind that this uses the Frontier Silicon internet radio portal. I have found that this is faster but lacks some of the features of Reciva. You can still listen again to BBC etc. but - for example - there is no way to display the metadata showing the track details. And using it with a NAS or listening to LAST FM do not seem to be possible.

You should also consider the portable PICO version of this set if you think battery powered independence would be useful. This latest version has increased the off mains time to several hours.

I have little use for DAB radio myself - only of value if you can't get online somewhere.
