I bought this unit for my kitchen. I already had a Pure One DAB radio but wanted a CD player as well, and this was the smallest CD player with built-in DAB radio I could find anywhere. I'm very pleased with the size, it sits unobtrusively on my dresser, and produces very good quality sound for its size.
The CD player is completely silent, there are some reviewers saying otherwise so perhaps they have ironed out the earlier problems. The DAB reception is very reliable, picking up the full range of stations with perfect reception from the small wire aerial.
The green backlit display is very easy to read and yet unobtrusive. If I wanted to read the text on my old Pure One (for example to find out the name of the piece of music playing) it involved a lot of peering at the small display with pastry-covered hands; this one requires no more than a quick glance. (The Pure One is a superb unit though and is now in the sitting room).
It also has a useful Aux in port on the front so any other items can be easily connected, and it has a USB on the top which is useful for charging things like the camera or the Kindle, no need to hunt around for chargers. It really does have the feel of being a well thought out and well designed unit.
It'd be a nice item for a bedroom with its alarm and snooze functions but is superb in a kitchen as well. It does exactly what I wanted and needed and more. Very pleased.
