Simple menu and nice design. I also like the wooden finish.
hope you people find this review helpful since some reviews out there are misleading (low star rating), because some people for the £60 they payed expect Hi-Fi sound and the 3inc speakers to perform as subwoofers.
If I had to find fault, it would be the control buttons. They are almost flush with the casing and for me, with not great eye sight, this makes finding them difficult. Other wise fabulous! Would recommend .
BUT - There are a few things about it which let it down badly.
- It has no preset buttons. Changing between stations is either manual, or via a horribly unintuitive favourites menu.
- The 'enter' button is positioned well away from the jog knob, used for navigating menus, stations, etc. Why not make the jog knob clickable?
- The display is *terrible*. It's a dirt cheap LCD, which (despite being white on black) leaks light and has a very poor viewing angle. The text scrolling happens one character at a time, rather than smoothly, as it the case with most recent DAB radios. The OLED display in my Pure Tempus is infinitely better at around the same price point.
I'm happy with my radio, but disappointed because it could so easily have been much better.
I have used it for a week now and I'm really pleased with it. It is really good quality-it looks as expensive as it was, or better. The black top part is lovely and smooth shiny black quality plastic (looks like glass-is great) and the dials have a high-quality feel to them and turn very smoothly. The display is simple and attractive. The wood-effect looks great and is easy to clean. The grill in front of the speakers also looks of a high quality. It has two great speakers that provide excellent quality sound as loud as you can stand. No distortion even when you have it loud enough to hear over ear-defenders and a belt sander! Very impressed.
Digital radio far exceeds normal radio and without trying to be drammatic it has changed my life: I am currently refurbishing a farmhouse and having Smooth 70's, Absolute 80's, and Absolute 90's makes boring jobs fun-there is also no sound distortion as I always had with normal radio.
The only possible downside is the price and that it is not battery operated, but most digital radios are expensive compared to normal radios and this one was relatively good value compared to other digital radios. Also I don't mind at all that you have to plug it in for it to work. Great radio, it would make a fantastic present.

Beautiful design but competitor absurd user interface. While I can just about cope with it, it was a gift for someone who struggled with the controls.Published on 10 Feb. 2015 by Jim Moores
