This review is from: Aves Air Handheld Digital Radio (Electronics)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The Aves Air handheld looks like a nice little, very lightweight radio. My only problem with it is I picked up and then left for the US. I thought I would be able to listen to some DAB stations or at the very least, some FM stations. It wasn't until I opened the box that I read the US doesn't broadcast in DAB. Apparently, only some countries do. But no worries, I figured I could at least use the FM part of the radio. First I tried it in the basement and couldn't get any stations so I moved to the ground floor. I was quickly able to pick up a few stations. The sound quality is excellent! I'm not a huge fan of the ear buds that come with the radio, but they're easily replaceable.

The scrolling text is painfully slow. The back light is nice but doesn't stay lit for very long. Hitting the info button while listening to FM sometimes shows information, sometimes nothing comes across.

Countries that broadcast DAB: UK, Australia, Belgium, Brunei, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Greece, Hungary, Hong Kong, Italy, Malta, Holland, Norway, Singapore and Switzerland.

It's frustrating the radio doesn't receive any stations while in the basement, which is where I wanted to use it most, but it does have a nice sound. For what it is, though, it seems fairly pricey. All it is is a pocket digital FM radio. I would expect to pay a lot less. Yet it is a nice pocket radio overall.
