Personally voted cold, I got one for my GF and after very mild use and no drops etc it broke just after 1 year.

This is a stereo DAB radio.... https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/bush-portable-stereo-dab-radio-grey-argos-ebay-2894-delivered-or-free-cc-save-395-3021407
This isn't dab+ going by the description in eBay so it won't get all station
Got this bush Dab. Great value for money. Also bought one for one of the quieter offices.
that was a cracking deal....wow
If it has a headphone socket you could plug in some PC speakers which may make it sound better.....
I was tempted, but if that is correct then not now.
I was always a 5 Live listener but a big Talksport fan these days instead. Listening to it now on DAB.
Only prob is that there are 20 preset channels-cant tune yourself
5 Live for me too, and Classic FM.
I picked up this today & it's really good. lots of stations & yes it does use the headphones as it's antenna excellent little DAB radio.
DAB : why?
Roberts are usually pretty good, even if they aren't made in UK anymore. I have the Roberts Ecologic 4, and the speaker sound quality is exceptional.
But there's only 4 X 2* reviews, but 34 X 5* reviews.... so i guess the vast majority say yay to this radio. But the proof is in the listening to it, some are more picky than others about the sound quality in a portable radio. If i were thinking about buying this radio, i would probably go to Currys or somewhere and listen to one.
Well I checked reviews on amazon for the 41. A few two star reviews, one criticising the sound: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Sony-XDR-S41D-Portable-Wireless-Display/product-reviews/B073VZVPRJ/ref=cm_cr_dp_d_hist_2?ie=UTF8&filterByStar=two_star&reviewerType=all_reviews#reviews-filter-bar Probably better with this Roberts: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Roberts-Radio-Play10-Digital-Presets/dp/B008VPBDYI/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1534542498&sr=8-4&keywords=roberts+dab I have heard it and it sounded decent.
I've not had experience of using one, but apparently it has got a better sound from reviews i've seen, it certainly couldn't be worse than the 40. It does have a higher output though, 0.6W as opposed to 0.3W on the 40. The 40 had a lot of complaints about its poor sound, i would assume that Sony has given it a better sound for the 41 replacement.
I probably like this better than the DAB clock radio I already have :)
Thanks, Managed to bag a couple.
True. I have one I got from Lidl, it isn't DAB, and I just use it as a clock really as I use my phone as an alarm, but the numbers are red which I find far more pleasant than blue or white. It's sad really that designers of these products don't seem to think or care that the displays will be too bright.
I found the displays on the old LED clock radios were all good at not causing illumination in the room at night. I've had ones with red, blue and green displays and they were all ok. The problem now is using LCD displays, these are all bad irrespective of the colour used. Unless they can be dimmed right down. The DAB radio alarm i have now is just as bad, even on its lowest dimming setting, but i can turn the display off altogether and just press any button to see time.
All clock radios should have red displays. Better at night.
DAB, cant you just tell it has the fuzzy Euro iconic design, it has FM so at least it will work country wide.
I bought ours on the basis of the decent What Hifi review and I'm pretty happy with it. Fair comment that the menus are a bit fiddly but I think you could do much worse at this price point for features and sound. Hot from me
Don’t buy unless you also like that authentic battery-powered transistor radio sound. Awful sound, plasticy build, infuriating unintuitive menu system. Avoid.
Why is it so hard to make DAB radios with a little style? Most seem to have been designed in the worst of retro styles..
Properly ventilated, non-new build bathroom. The radio, which is pretty much a sealed unit, and at £12 is pretty much disposable, is no where near the bath/shower as previously explained. Next?
Of course, steam does wonders for electrics.
Hahahahahahahaha, no problem, I hear ya, thanx.
I was responding to Bilbo the 'likes' collector, I think it's a decent item for the money (y)
No problem. :-D I'll buy the OP's one for only £16.99 ... And this Weekend coming, I'll blatantly sell it for you for £169.90 INSTEAD of you want?, hehehehehe. ;-) It's just a fancy Radio man, that's it?. So it doesn't therefore need to cost a King's ransom right?, or ... ;-) (That's in my humble opinion anyway?). :-)
Especially a red one.
I know that but didn’t feel need to give a history lesson. Fact is they are now designed and made in China and generally are entry level price and average performance
No DAB + , no proper lcd screen . Cold for £ 34. If it was selling for £12 , it would have been ok .
They never used to be but were sold to Argos along with Alba. Bush actually used to make some decent products before they were sold. They are actually a British brand
"...this is at least £49.99 everywhere else..." OP: where is '"everywhere else"? It's an Argos own brand! Not leather either - "leather look" in the small print. Dishonest. If it's anything like two Bush branded radios I've had it's best avoided at any price, let alone this price.
I'm heading to huddersfield this weekend might pass by and see if tempted, time and weather permitting.
Hot from me.
Wow that's for a family of 4 :o This is really good even if you are queuing for the majority of the time 1 or 2 rides each and you've got good value for your money
I went to this last week when they were in Manchester. It’s small but the best little funfair I’ve ever been to. The kids loved it and they had a few big rides for the thrill seekers. We paid £5/8 each so this is a really good deal
£5 for 3 hours...... Bet you spend over 2.5 hours queuing up to get on the rides though! (fierce) Voted hot
I understand what you mean. I posted a deal 2 days bank still live and someone posted the same deal .reported to remove but nothing happened. I guesss all Mods and other hukd brigade busy hunting flamedeers. Golds are nowhere to be found. However its fun hunting them. :D
Mine was up days before but got deleted after this was posted . Oh well! Who even gets gold flamedeers?! I have double of just about everything else...
So many deals being reposted and no mod is paying attention due to this flamedeer hunting.
I already posted this
Inflatable? Not what I thought it was. Heat for the price.
My brother had the older model and it's lasted years, it's suffered puddles, tumbles, drops, still going strong.
Great wee things, old school fun.
Its written clearly on every box I looked at when at Argos, about six of them as I was looking for a blue one but they only have red. Some places are still selling the older stock which were 27 or 40MHz versions, but although Argos use to sell the old versions, it seems all the current ones are the latest 2.4GHz models. The older models needed much longer arials whereas the 2.4GHz ones are short :) https://www.menkind.co.uk/nikko-pro-nano-vaporizr-2-blue
Got one two. My 3 years old loves it. The only downside are the batteries.
Where is this confirmed? On the site it has conflicting 'answers'.
Sorry buddy, In store only. Ex direct stock as its now closed online.
Expired now, heat added tho nice find
Sorry to say should avoid buying these cheap things. Unless you don't mind throwing money away. For vinyl to last, it needs to be looked after and these cheap players are not only poor quality in sound but will ruin your vinyl. so when your 10yr old starts complaining about their records jumping or not sounding right, you could keep replacing the vinyl but better off saving and getting a decent player.
Top comment lol
Yes I’ve missed that one. This should be ok as far as battery life is concerned. I’ve recently bought one from eBay which has a usb and card reader slot too but it’s a rechargeable one and 4-5 hours playback just doesn’t cut it and it’s always on charge. Sounds picky but I can be fishing for 3 or 4 nights in a row, so a pack of pound land AA’s and this should see me right.
I do use my phone on many occasions for music with Bluetooth speakers or watching a movie but it doesn’t have a fm feature and a bit like vinyl it’s has a certain charm. Plus the fact handling your phone around the lake side unnecessarily is asking for trouble. Call me old school but I like a radio.
Good for standing on the terraces at a cold football ground with your single earpiece in listening to other games.....no wait, it's all seated nowadays (shock)
Not unless you can time travel no!
love a nice bush
Oos south west wales 🏴??????
Thanks for the tip, might get one of those .
You can use your phone with a Bluetooth speaker. You can listen to anything you want, wherever you want. I have a water resistant one for about 20 quid. Take it in the shower, garden, spare room, camping etc. Sounds a whole lot better, and no need to risk your phone
My mobile does have FM radio, but I sometimes prefer an actual radio that I can listen to whilst around the house or garden, without having to have headphones on. Besides, would rather drop a cheap radio down the pan whilst cleaning the bathroom, than my mobile...
out of stock now, expired it just now , until I see it come back in stock again
Back in stock overnight, unexpired just now.
I expired this at midnight, 6 hours after my posting, all sold out now, as I had predicted. Voters just started to cast cold votes causing the heat in votes to plummet, when they clicked and saw this " This item is out of stock". But do keep checking as some may be returned or come back in stock.
Ordered, thanks for posting.
Already got one but hotfrom me
Interested. Enlighten me please and point towards fool proof on/off Internet radio please. Free standing, WiFi, on/off, volume and basic channel search. None otlf the mobile/Bluetooth speaker malarkey or apps etc.
Why aren't people listening to their smart speakers. My DAB radio doesn't get used any more.
The best internet kitchen radio is Logitech Squeezebox radio. Sadly discontinued now.
Yes. It’s a Roberts Internet radio rebadged as a John Lewis.
Is that an internet radio too?
You think they would of put it on the homepage. Plenty of other offers though I will edit it.
and its oos
3years plus. May be why it looks no fun. To you :3
Might be a saving from the RRP but this looks a lot like landfill to me. The Disney merch machine is certainly pumping out a lot of crap.
I like to read the radio Times ,listening to the bay city rollers,whilst my vesta birriany is slowly cooking on the stove,just saying.
This publication is ideal for a elderly relative who prefers a physical read to a Digital read. £1 for 10 issues,posted free. Remember to cancel Direct debit anytime.
Over the years this publication has taken a nosedive in the TV listings department. The level of detail, particularly with the 5 core channels has gone downhill. The cover price meanwhile has rocketed way beyond inflations and earnings. Bearing in mind the 1972 cover price was 5p and now costs £2.80. That's a 56 fold increase which surpasses inflation and earnings by an enormous margin. And the final insult is the offers or rather the lack of them within the publication. In 40 years I can't ever recall any offers worth having that would do a HUK dealer proud. Even the Christmas issue isn't exciting anymore.
Why pay when you can just check on a tv guide app or on your tv
