Hardcore audiophiles might prefer a unit with optical connections etc, while gadget freaks will want a pause button and an SD-card slot. Early-risers might demand a clock-radio facility. For the rest of us, this does very nicely indeed.
The DAB side of things is a doddle to use -- just switch it on and it tunes itself in, after which you're only a few keypresses away from the desired station. There are eight presets, accessed through four numbered buttons and a shift button. Tuning and preset information is retained even if you don't install batteries -- I switched it off at the mains overnight and the setup was still there the next morning. Sound quality is very good. The unit will, of course, burble with the best of them if not given an adequate signal, but in my stone-walled cottage I don't even need to extend the telescopic aerial.
FM performance is competent, if marred by somewhat fiddly tuning -- the autoscan stops every time it hears a consistent crackle, meaning it's easier to use manual tuning. I ended up reading the desired frequency off another radio. Fortunately, with 8 non-volatile presets also available for FM, re-tuning shouldn't be a frequent event. As seems usual with small radios, FM is much clearer when you switch it to mono.
The case has a nice brushed metallic finish, and should appeal to those who think those retro wooden box affairs are already looking ... retro. One small gripe here is that the handle doesn't fold away fully into the back of the unit, but to be fair, because of the way the case is sculpted, the handle would have to rotate almost through 180 degrees to disappear completely.
All in all, it's hard to find a reason not to recommend this to anyone looking for a stylish, basic DAB radio.
