What you'd expect for £40,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sony XDRS40 DAB/DAB+/FM Ultra Compact Digital Radio - Red (Electronics)
It's OK, but It's certainly not as good as the slightly bigger radio I've been using for a decade or so (that wasn't digital). I Can't use this radio near the Printer or scanner in the Office - as they cause interference that stops the signal, so I now use it in a warehouse area where the sound quality isn't so critical (as It can be turned up loud!). A real irritation is that you have to push the on/off switch to turn it on once the power has been switched off - this may not seem a big deal on the surface of it, but these buttons stop working after a while (I know as I have had two digital radios get so dodgy to switch on/off that they got chucked away. The upshot is, it's worth the money if all you need is a small radio. If I could be bothered I'd return it, as it's not what I would expect from Sony, but I'll keep it for a secondary location use to save the hassle.

Thank you for this review. I listen at night in the dark as well and you've prevented me from making an expensive mistake.
