Can't grumble at that price, good find
Please a little word of warning is not a DAB + and you may not get all stations. But good find!

You can I've heard it.


If you throw it in a full bath, it sounds marginally better

Wouldn't buy a DAB radio that doesn't support DAB+
It's getting close to half the commercial stations needing DAB+ and more will switch over time

Any non-DAB+ radio should be considered temporary
Same in my extra this morning, so looks national

Best Dab+ is 40kbps so no point in buying a new one to replace standard Dab. I did get a cheap internet radio go up a grade from 128kbps mp3. If you have data, Dab is near pointless.

The commercial stations are all a bit cheap and want to squeeze in as many as they can
40kbits stereo sounds very low, but since it's using AAC instead of MP3, the quality is still quite good

That is pushing the boundaries of what is good.
Ok, maybe it's pants
But comparing bitrates isn't really useful when talking about mp3 and aac
A good signal standard stereo FM station has much better sound quality.

But no decent stations
UK choose the worst standard for dab available shame really! They decided it's was cheaper to make to this standard so uptake of sets would be quicker. But really the sets due to mass build would cost the same.
Glad I looked at this, was going to buy but will get DAB+
