Despite considering proud to be British, in the past, I have been faintly repelled when I saw the advertising for this product was based upon a great unsubtle Union Jack decoration, and all the fringe organisation implications that represents. BUT, as an everyday D.A.B. user, I have a selection of personal/portable DAB's, and I usually rely upon one of my many Aigo DAFMOO1A units. Their performance find the best of the bunch, although the controls are problematical, the lightweight construction plastic vunerable ... all the common problems with trying to get so much technology in a small package. No special criticism intended for this model, I just find them frustrating. NOW, when I was tempted to try the Blighty Radio at a bargain price, I was more than pleasantly surprised. The build quality is superior, feeling like metal not plastic (with the slight added weight penalty). The controls are slightly more easily accessed (after the initial fiddly setting up of the preferred stations, which is common to all devices like these). The slight prominence of the 'OK' button was not vunerable to accidental pressing, as I worried, the screen is backlit for ease, and then fades to save power. The on/off switch is small and tricky, but WORKS, so it is difficult to leave on or switch off unintentionally. The Volume power is fantastic, the charging lead is small and needs care but no problem after two weeks constant use. I married this product with a pair of Sony MDR WO-8L in ear lightweight phones, and the user friendliness and performance means I haven't bothered using any of my many other DAB's since. I heartily recommend .!
