Thought I’d start a new topic on radio reviews.
This radio I got from ebay.
- Very light in weight. Nice to put in pocket. Too many things need to go in pocket these days.
- DAB reception adequate.
- Bluetooth, those new flagship phones with no headphone jack. This is solution.
- I like on off switch.
- Whilst no presets quite straight forward to use, very simple.
- Quite cheap!
Not so good
- FM radio trash. In mono.
- Some low DAB bit stations in mono, like FUN Superdigi, the higher bit station sound ok but not as good as the Sangean.
- Taking phone calls, the microphone is in the the device itself. So you need to hold the radio near your mouth.
- No presets but not the end of the world.
Conclusion, not good for for DXing or FM radio, but really light in pocket not bulky at all. I like the bluetooth feature too. I definitely need another radio to listen to FM but this is good to have if you plan to listen to dab only in a good reception area, also you don’t care the audio quality or don’t need to listen to FM radio or low bit dab radio.
I’ll post more or my radio reviews as I get time to do them :).
