Although I do not have any significant experience of other DAB receivers, it seems to me that this product has all the features necessary for full DAB enjoyment. At a retail price of £299, this makes it excellent value. Other products offer features such as larger graphics display and/or built in AM/FM receiver. I was looking for a unit to add to my existing Hi-Fi separates system and saw no particular requirement for these. The DRX-601E has a full range of input and output sockets giving maximum connectivity, which was important to me - such as the coaxial and optical output for direct digital recording to MiniDisc, CD-R or DAT. Some people might find the remote control a bit on the small side; that's pretty much the only negative comment I can think of.
