Bush DAB Radio
Advantages: It is a good looking radio that is very easy to use and has got clear reception
Disadvantages: There are no disadvantages
WHAT IS IT?
A digital radio made by Bush. The design changes often, my Bush DAB radio looks a bit different to the photograph and it has got blackened speaker mesh and a longer handle.
The digital radio has got a very nice design that looks smart in my kitchen. It is very heavy for a radio so I do not take it out with me very often even though I bought it for taking to work when I visit clients homes, it is too heavy for that and takes up a lot more room that a cheap analogue radio. The illuminated display is large enough for me to see what it says while I am sitting down and it glows brightly to give me a nice little light in the kitchen. The display tells me what station I am on and announces if anything special is happening at that time. It is an accurate display and there is no time lag.
EASE OF USE
This DAB radio is very easy to use. You just scan through the channels to find what you are looking for and if there are channels that you listen to regular then you can store them as presets. This radio holds 10 presets and does not lose them even if the power is turned completely off for a long time. Storing and accessing presets is very easy and done at the touch of a button.
I think this radio has got a very clear sound and there is never any interference. The volume is a bit funny because it goes up loud but you cannot turn it down very well, the lowest is inaudible but the next volume increment up is still quite loud. I cannot listen to it in bed like I want to and have to use another DAB radio because this one wakes my husband up. Sometimes the volume alters by itself and that is when a very loud rock song comes on the radio, it makes me jump sometimes and I have to rush to turn it down.
WHAT I THINK
I like this radio very much and am glad I purchased it even though I cannot use it as I intended. I like that it will work by battery as well as through the electric because that made it easy for me to take it on our holiday to a hotel that charges for electrical checks on items that are going to be used in the rooms. It saved me a charge at the end of our stay and the batteries lasted for the entire five days of our short break but not very much longer.
The radio is simple to work, my daughter is nine and she has saved a childrens radio station to a preset channel and can access it by herself. I was going to buy her one of her own for her birthday but I forgot about it so I might get her one for her Easter present instead. I think it is good that it's so easy to use because that means a lot of people can have one and even if they are not technical in thought they will still be able to use it.
The only thing I dislike about this DAB radio is that the join where the handle is gathers dust and it is very hard to keep it clean. The speaker mesh gets dirty as well but that is easy to clean and I think it is because of it being black that the dust shows up. The feet are not slippy so the radio does not slide when I touch it.
5 Dooyoo Stars.
Summary: This is a very good digital radio
