The DM38 has received very good reviews in the hi-fi press and elsewhere. Everything they've said about it is true - it's excellent. I wanted to add DAB to my system and initially looked at separate DAB/FM/AM tuners. I hadn't considered all-in-one systems before and certainly not micro size. Having found the reviews, the more I thought about it, the more it made sense. So I replaced my elderly but capable Hitachi FM/AM tuner, and my old Pioneer CD deck and Sherwood amp (both very good). I've retained my Pioneer turntable and 40 year old (yes, 40) Wharfedale Denton speakers, and now have a very acceptable, but obviously not high-end, system. (Incidentally, the speakers are on a par with or better than many current ones in packaged systems.) It may lack a few features of high-end separates, but it's very user friendly with big bonuses of USB input for MP3s and single remote. Tuner sensitivity is excellent, even with the indoor DAB wire aerial supplied, but I'm going to add an external one. I've been pleasantly surprised how good even low bit-rate DAB stations sound. On a green note, standby power is less than 0.3W; that's even less than some gadgets, which switch off mains to a cluster of devices, consume themselves while monitoring for operation of remotes. All in all, a very good purchase that I would thoroughly recommend.
