4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty good deal, considering..., 1 Jan 2011
This review is from: Genus Type R Digital Radio with FM (DAB/FM Walnut) (Electronics)
This is not bad piece of equipment, especially considering the price (bought this in dec 2010, it was 50), the main thing that bothers me is that the touch-screen style buttons aren't strictly touch sensitive, I find I still have to push them as hard as I would a normal button or slide my finger several times to get a response, rather than with the instant, deft lightness that other touch-sensitive devices are capable of responding to. But it looks BEE-YOO-tiful in our kitchen with its sexy aluminium and walnut casing (the leather back is not quite as stunning but its on the back so that's fine) and futuristic red glow.

The sound: it's VERY bass-ey, almost a little too much. The EQ settings don't have much difference between them, I find jazz or classical is the best as the bass isn't the focus as much as it is with the 'pop' or 'rock'. The 'flat' setting... well, that does exactly what it says on the tin. And I mean not in a good way.

Considering the price, and the fact that we're now receiving great quality DAB radio as opposed to a 5 analogue relic from Woolworths (!), I'd say this is def a must. If you want to keep it cheap, functional, AND impress your friends, go for it.

Oh, and it's quite heavy! What do they PUT in these things?
