im after a DAB Radio for the kitchen, it doesnt have to be top of the range, but needs to be fairly decent and has to last a while

If I recall bigup the customer comments on Amazon were not very favourable for the one you mention...however at that price range there aren't many DAB radios on offer.

I have one like this and it's excellent.

The Pure One is at John Lewis for £49.99 you could get £10-15 off with the vouchers here. I've just got my dad one. The built in aerial gets a much better signal than my older Evoke-1.

Mono only, but for a kitchen that shouldn't matter. It feels a little light and plasticy as well. But good value imo!

My daughter bought the pure one from JL using the vouchers 1234564motherandb for jsut over £30. It does feel a little plasticly but the sound quality is excellent for such a compact and cheap unit. (not sure if the voucher is still valid though)

I would suggest you might want to try sainsburys. My local one has a number of Albas under £40. You can try them instore if they are on display.
To my mind if they pick up a clear signal in there with all that potential electrical inference around they can't be that bad.

As the saying goes you get what you pay for and that will probably be a mono sound with line out to connect to a stereo.

We have a small stereo unit in the kitchen and have connected up a DAB adaptor (Matsui DA1 from Dixons/Currys)with very good results .

Also my local post office was selling the above Alba for £29.99 this week.

Good luck!
