Bush DAB Radio
Advantages: attractive, neat, portable, great reception
Disadvantages: none for me
I have always loved listening to the radio and remember sitting with (both sets) of my grandparents listening to the wireless. As I work from home mine is always set on radio 4 where I can start the day with Today, then Woman's hour etc and hope there is a good play on in the afternoon....
My faithful old portable 'died' on me a few months ago so I treated myself to this Bush one because, as a family, we have always found their products to be so reliable. I paid £45 for mine but have noticed it is now in the Argos sale for £33.99 (until 29 July) and the same price in Homebase at the moment.
The Dooyoo picture is an accurate one and as you can see it has a retro look to it which gives it some personality and it different to most of the radios around today.
It is mains or battery operated but as I last paid ££4.59 for 4 Duracell AA batteries I have plugged mine into the wall!
height 12.6 cm
width - 24.6 cm
so you can see it is a good size for a portable radio.
It gives a good, clear reception with the lack of any annoying 'hissing' sounds. We live in Cheshire, not far from Manchester airport yet I can still get great reception in all rooms as well as in the garden.
digital DAB/FM tuner
10 pre-set stations
10 DAB pre-set stations
2x2 watts RMS
The only thing I would point out is the unusual volume control but I've soon got used to this and I would not class this as a disadvantage - more a quirky feature.
well priced for a basic yet durable portable radio
easy to tune
good clear reception (it has an ariel as opposed to a thin plastic wire)
recommended by me especially in the wee small hours when I'm listening to the World Service!
5 stars from me and thank you Messrs Bush (the company, not the ex presidents of the US I hasten to add!)
Summary: a well-priced radio that looks good
