Bought this for hubby for Christmas, he loved it and so do I
on 5 January 2013
I liked the idea of this radio for two reasons - the first being that when it gets to the end of its life, its recyclable and also because it offered an mp3 connection with cable and batteries included. My hubby enjoys listening to the radio and also his iPod so this radio ticked all my boxes for buying him an extra wee gift to go in his Christmas stocking.
His face on Christmas morning when he opened it showed me he was pleased. I'm a tech geek and like colour and glamour, he likes plain and neutral LOL and he adores this for its simplicity. My Dab radio is all singing, all dancing, and he adores this radio because its the exact opposite. He said 'I like that its just a basic radio, nothing fancy' and that is when I knew I had made a good choice. I asked him if he would like me to decorate it, he said NO, that would spoil it, I like it just the way it is. He tuned it in to his favourite local radio station (reception was great) and we listened to it as we both unwrapped more Christmas gifts. I then showed him how he could plug in his iPod to turn it into a speaker and we both then listened to some of his crap music (our musical tastes are vastly different) hehe. I quickly suggested we go back to listening to the radio and mentioned that he could play that earache when he was laid in the bath maybe (but keep your cardboard, recyclable radio safe from getting wet! if used in the bathroom of course).
If it was mine, I would put stickers on and pretty it up, as its his he left it just as it it. Simple, tasteful, basic as he calls it. The radio works great and it arrived in perfect condition. I thought it was excellent value for money and brought great joy to my hubby who prefers simple non-techy things. He also liked the MP3 speaker facility.
All in all a great buy! Quite quirky :) Good value for money, build quality is good and when it comes to the end of its natural life, you can dispose of easily. Rip it up! HsHa.
