I was given this radio as a christmas present and so as I'd rather not talk about the price I will concentrate on the radio itself.
The appearance of it is very sleek and stylish as you can see from the picture, it looks modern while still retaining some retro charm with the faux wood effect sides, top and rear. The aerial is practical and has worked in all the locations I have used the radio in. The controls are positioned so the main controls are very obvious but the more unused ones are set subtly into just above the speaker.
The contros are very easy to get the hang of and definitely have the best layout that I have found on a DAB radio. The volume control is a knob rather than buttons, which I find is certainly the best layout as it means that there is any number of different volumes that can be selected. The station select is also a knob, which means that you can slide through the stations very quickly.
The sound quality is excellent, it is very clear and I have never heard it burble as some DAB radios are apt to do. One complaint I have about the sound quality is that it is more biased towards speech than towards music (designed with the radio four listener in mind perhaps), and as there is no bass, treble control e.t.c. there is no way of rectifying this.
I notice that it has a battery slot, although I have never used it with batteries (and I suspect that most people purchasing it will not) and so I cannot comment on this.
Overall I have found this to be an excellent radio to have at home for daily use. I have had no problems with it and I think that it is designed both aesthetically and practically.
