Great sound and stylish DAB / Internet Radio
Member Name: croomstyx
Advantages: Great sound, DAB, Internet and Ipod dock, easy to set up and use
Disadvantages: None so far
I bought this from Amazon having watched the prices for a while, and have not been disappointed. We wanted internet radio but felt that with the demise of analogue in a few years, DAB woudl be useful since we were spending the money. It has a great sound, we also looked at the Philips Colourstream and compared the two in a dept store but found the sound of this one was far superior (my opinon, but seemed to have a better depth to it). The unit is gloss black, an interesting shape, and it has a good extending ariel at the back. The display screen is bright and the remote control works well. It picks up internet radio very well (something I was concerned about as our broadband can go on the blink at times and I worried that the radio wouldn't work well, but so far so good) Easy to switch between sources, and also has FM as well as DAB. The ipod dock was a must, and a key reason to choosing this model rather than others, but also I wanted something that looked reasonably modern rather than retro or utilitarian. Pure radios are DAB+ enabled so when the upgrade comes, it will be compatible. Admittedly it's not a cheap radio but I think you get more for your money than a lot of other similar radios on the market, and the combination of DAB/Internet and Ipod are harder to find than I expected they would be (at a sub £250 price at any rate). Easy to set up, and so far we are very happy with our purchase.
Summary: Looks and sounds great
