In summary very pleased.
I'm very glad I did so as it's excellent and does the job very well.
Outdoor reception is terrific and the sound is very clear (an added bonus is the excellent tangle-fee Jays earphones which are included in the price and which themselves get good reviews)
Indoor reception is not very good and in fact you need to do the scanning for stations outdoors to get best results. Also as the earphones act as the aerial you need to keep them dangling to optimise the reception (ie. you can't just stuff the excess cable length into your pocket !!)
Negatives are that there are only 4 pre-sets and the favourite station function is fiddly to use. Now I don't bother with the pre-sets - it's just as quick to flick through the stations.
Oxx is a Scandinavian manufacturer presently not well-known in the UK but apparently its reputation is growing, especially in Australia, and, judging from the quality of this pocket radio, it will soon be a name to reckon with across here too.
Basically, I'm astounded. The unit feel solid, is slightly smaller than I expected, and it found 45 DAB stations in my living room - more than my larger DAB unit.
The sound quality is excellent, the controls and display are extremely basic - which is perfect. What else do you need to do other than find stations, store them, flick through them, and change the volume?
The headphones are seriously good quality. The flat cable makes it impossible to tangle, and just feels like a quality item. I understand if you buy these on the market, they're not exactly cheap (so you feel you're getting even more of a bargain).
And it comes with 2 AAA batteries! (although I've ordered the Duracell recharger and a pack of AAA batteries as well).
I've not quite figured out how to get FM, but that's my fault as I've found everything else without looking at the instructions. And I have everything I need with DAB anyway.
One additional note. The letter which came from the supplier, thanking me for my order, felt very personal. I really wish this company luck (the letter mentioned they were trying to partner with M&S, which clearly they have succeeded in as I first saw the item on their website).
The Logik unit looks identical to the Oxx in every way. I can vouch for the superb sound quality.
It would seem the only difference is the supplied headphones and packaging. Worth a look.
I have now used the device as I intended and I am very happy with it
I have used it in the car and on the whole, considering the Aux lead is used as the aerial, reception has been very good driving in the city. I have yet to try at 70mph on the motorway but even so if all else fails I can invest in a car windscreen aerial if needed.
