Pioneer SX-20DAB-K Stereo Receiver with Phono Input, DAB/DAB+ and FM Tuner - Black
Pioneer SX-20DAB-K Stereo Receiver with Phono Input, DAB/DAB+ and FM Tuner - Black
Price: £199.04

2.0 out of 5 stars No DAB presets (by design?), display vanishes after 2 seconds (faulty unit), unreadable labels, chunky design, 22 Jun. 2016
The first one I tried would not save DAB presets so Richer Sounds supplied a second one which had the same problem - it is probably just very bad design (the instructions describe using FM presets and do not mention DAB presets) - so to change from BBC Radio 4 to BBC 6 Music I have to press the button 7 times! After a few weeks the display stopped working - so it is going back.

All the labels on the unit are barely readable without an inspection lamp.

Alas Moore's Law does not apply to tuner amps - they were better when I was a lad, many years ago.

Easily the best dish cloths I have ever tried. I am still using the first one after some weeks. They are much more absorbent than J cloths and far less stinky than cotton cloths and easier to clean and dry.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good solid loo seat, well made, easy to clean., 7 Jun. 2016

Good solid loo seat, well made, easy to clean. Better than the fake wood ones I have tried and perhaps better than the soft close ones which seem to lose their soft close function after a while.

4.0 out of 5 stars quite good, 7 Jun. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Would give this 3.5 stars if I could. I was given a 3 day delivery window so had to be in for 3 days! After unpacking I found 2 large splits in the central piece of wood - not something one wood (ha ha) accept from a store but could not face returning it so tried to glue it - which does not look great as of yet.

It arrives unfinished - whatever you do do not use Liberon's garden teak oil - completely destroys the appearance.

It is not as strong as a non-folding table but eventually I am quite pleased with it - the shape, size and appearance are good, it is easy to move and accepts a parasol through the middle with room for a base.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good - makes wooden furniture look good., 7 Jun. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
In huge contrast to Liberon's disastrous garden teak oil this stuff is good - easy to apply and makes wooden furniture look good. Too early to say how effective it is as a preservative.

1.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely terrible - do not buy, do not use - it will wreck your furniture., 7 Jun. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Absolutely terrible - do not buy, do not use - it will wreck your furniture. Perhaps there was something very wrong with the tin I got? I cannot understand what Liberon were thinking. Rather than a furniture oil this is a very unpleasant tan colour - more like cheap cuprinol. If you have attractive wooden garden furniture it will hide the grain and turn it a vile orange / red tan colour - I put it on my new unfinished teak garden table - aaarrrghh! If for some insane reason you are determined to use this product test a small hidden area first - then discard the product.

After wiping off as best I could I then used the liberon danish oil - which is good - as their products usually are.

1.0 out of 5 stars Control button labels are very hard to read (small and same colour as the buttons)., 9 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Display is faint, does not change itself when the clocks go forward, though perhaps it would in other locations. Maybe new batteries would help with the display.
But the control buttons are very hard to read (I need strong reading glasses and an inspection torch for this!) so mine is going in the bin.
