I had initial reservations about purchasing this radio as I could not find many customer reviews of this product but I have not been disappointed. Although quite heavy, this radio is solidly built and the speakers have sufficient power to ensure there is no sound distortion when you turn up the volume. The radio is easy to operate - you can pre-set both DAB and FM stations and the CD player works perfectly well. You can also plug in your MP3 player/ipod and play your music via the speakers - it also has a headphone socket too. The radio can either be mains operated or you can use batteries. All in all, a quality product - thanks Amazon!
