This is a neat little clock radio - I've had mine for a couple of years now and have never had any reason to grumble. I had owned a Pure digital radio before and had been pleased with it, so wanted the same functionality in the bedroom, especially as I like listening to BBC Radio 5 Live which my better half can't bear listening to on Medium Wave as she is crackle-intolerant. The same station on DAB is fine apparently so it seemed a sensible solution. Tuning in was easy enough. It seemed to find all the available stations without any problems and it is easy to skip between them and to present your favourites. Sound quality too is ... Read the complete review

Nice looking machine and very easy to set up. In fact pretty much does it all by itself.The different alarm setting (week, weekend etc) are excellent.

Why the other buttons aren't relocated to the back of the unit is puzzling.

I have listened for several hours and never felt tired of the sound. The volume will not go to an excessively loud level, so if you live next door to a mainline railway you may find you can't ...

Just before Christmas, my parents' Sony cube clock had given its last breath where its wake up functions were concerned; its sleep function button had recessed to no avail and changing the clock meant it had to be left in its original British Summer time mode as the buttons had also given way. There was only one thing for it; to find another Sony product given the fantastic devoted service our original clock radio had given for so many years (14!). Like many companies these days it seems the old style analogue clock radio is on its way out unless it is priced and made to a budget. The age of DAB / Digital Audio Broadcasting technology has meant that cheaper ... Read the complete review
