Manufacturer's Description

With its soft curves and beech veneer casework, this elegant radio will stand out in any kitchen or bedroom. It is further accented with silver grill speakers, brushed steel-effect curved handle and round volume dial. A metallic panel at the top of the radio houses the button controls, and a pale blue LCD screen that displays the name of the station currently playing and may show programme information, including the song currently playing or news headlines, depending on the radio station.

Operating the radio is very easy. The user can switch from FM to DAB signals, and adjust the settings at the push of a button. In DAB mode, the radio automatically tunes to all available DAB stations, so there are no frequencies to remember. Instead, the listener can simply scroll through the list of available stations and select the one they want.

For convenience, four favourite DAB and four FM stations can be stored on the preset buttons. It also features an alarm clock with sleep mode.

The radio is mains powered and is supplied with a power lead and telescopicaerial. Two 5-Watt stereo speakers ensure optimum sound quality, and the radio has the added benefit of a headphone socket.

The radio looks really good and is incredibly easy to set up, with the set automatically tuning in all available stations when you first plug it in. Sound quality is great - no hiss whatsoever, however I can't say it is particularly better than a good FM signal. The best thing is having new radio stations - I am loving BBC Radio 6 and 7 and Worldwide. The scrolling text is also cool and tells you what song is playing, what show you are listening to now and next, depending on the station. The only drawbacks are:
- Only 4 presets (not 8 as stated in the description - although I think you can store 4 FM stations as well but why would you want to when all the best stations and more are in DAB).
- No battery power option - I like the radio so much I would like to drag it round the house with me, listen in the bath, garden, etc!
- Now I know I like the extra stations and DAB format, I wish I'd gone for one of the more expensive models like the "Bug" radio, that has storage facilities to record and replay programmes.
Other than those minor quibbles I am extremely pleased with this. An ideal and well priced introduction to DAB.

Although at first I wasn't convinced by the wooden-look DAB radios, after looking around i realised that actually they do look pretty funky, and when I got mine delivered I was happy with the way it looked, as it matches the laminate flooring and furniture perfectly. It blendds in rather than sticks out like my black hi-fi equipment.
The radio tuned in quickly, and seems to have found far more stations than were originally listed. All my favourites are there, and at last I can listen to things like XFM and Virgin in clear stereo without bothering about returning and adjusting the aerial. the sound seems to be well-balanced, and although i'm not a hi-fi buff I would say that it is probably pretty good. Certainly to the untrained ear it does sound as clear as my CDs.
The best feature is being able to scroll quickly around and check whats on each station - this means you can catch some great tunes that you might ordinarily miss if you were stuck on one station.
The price was OK. I've heard that the warranty is good for Intempo radios, so its reassuring when your paying over £50 to know that you have a helpline etc. If I have one moan its that there aren't more presets, but as i said before it is so easy to change station that you can understand why they havent included more.
I would tell everyone to make the switch to DAB. i was one of the last of my friends and wish I'd done it sooner.

I chose this radio because it seemed to be the least difficult to use. When I received it I was pleased to find that the instruction manual was very clear and easy to understand. In fact I didn't really need to use it... when you first plug the radio in it says 'full scan' for about a minute, and when thats finished all the stations are stored as if by magic, in alphabetical order, in a list which you navigate simply by using the up and down keys. I found that this has meant that I have found lots of new stations that I wouldn't even have found on my old radio. If a song comes on that you don't like you can quickly go to another station and find one that you do.
What can I say aboutt he sound quality? Well there's just nothing to complain about at all, the sound is very clear on speech and music, and the volume goes as loud as you'd ever really need from a product of this size.
All in all its very good - my first DAB radio but definately not my last

As the previous reviewer said this is a kitchen / dining room based mains powered DAB unit.
Pros
1. Looks very nice with 'soft' styled design - it fits nicely into the home and has a modern, inobtrusive facade.
2. Has DAB and FM - a great combination.
3. Reasonably cheap - a fourty-fifty quid saving on the Pure or Roberts units which are great but don't always warrant the extra for the average listener.
4. Excellent, pin sharp DAB reception even in poor quality coverage areas - this is a real plus.
5. No speaker distortion (unlike some others).
6. Good tuning features and auto-scan of stations on switch on
7. Intempo have fantastic customer service - very quick indeed on a minor problem I had (next day replacement with them coming to my home - wonderful)
8. Stereo speakers built in unlike the Pure and Roberts 'high end' products. When you do get good reception stereo speakers are more than just a bonus.
9. RDS text on FM not just the additional text lines you get on DAB. A feature I didn't expect.
Cons:
1. Mains only - Not battery operated so fixed position use only.
2. Volume button is a tiny bit flimsy
3. Only four presets for DAB stations and then 4 for FM which isn't many. However changing DAB stations is a doddle anyway - no manual messing around so it's not a big issue.
The unit is one of the first 'kitchen' styled DAB and FM units. It will face stiff competition from the cheaper (around 90) Goodmans unit (which frankly doesn't look half as nice) and the Grundig similar unit (but DAB only not including FM).
For a fixed-base radio for the average listener this is a good mix of DAB and FM with excellent styling. It's price is good and with discounting in store or on-line will prove highly attractive.
Within a year there will be an explosion of similar units but this one is worth buying now.
