One of My Best Buys,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: KAOS PDR1 Personal Stereo Digital DAB/DAB+/FM Radio Recorder (Electronics)
By today's snazzy standards this is quite a basic machine when it comes to playback and - as another reviewer has said - the ability to fast forward would improve things*. However, the main reason I wanted this machine was because of its ability to record radio programmes and this it does admirably. I can record my favourite shows and listen to them whenever I like - plus I can keep them for as long as I want. The battery life is fine for my needs though I'm not sure it's quite as long as stated in the product description - I charge it about 3 times a week and use it to record around 18 hours of radio a week and of course use it to play back recordings too. It's true what other reviewers say about the buttons being easy to accidentally press, the machine has switched itself on a couple of times when it's been in my handbag but I've had no problems with it in my coat pocket. All in all I'm really pleased with it, the reception is very good and it's very straightforward to use. *I have also found a piece of software which converts the recorded files from their MP2 format into MP3s which enables me to listen to recordings on my mobile phone and use the fast forward function on this - where there's a will there's a way!
but I've found a way around that with a piece of software that converts the files I record into MP3s which I can then play on my mobile. It's a very straightforward machine to understand and I'm really pleased with i
