DAB reception is great where I live so I don't even need to have the aerial up and I get all the stations. I won't be using FM but I tried it and it was a different story, not even finding major BBC stations with the aerial fully extended. There was quite a lot of interference on FM stations too. DAB+ channels seem to take a second or two longer to tune in, but there aren't many of those yet. They don't sound any different.
On DAB the sound is pleasant (very clear, not distorted, quite crisp) for spoken word and light music. I mostly listen to spoken word. There's no bass or warmth to the sound though, and no tone controls to adjust it. The sound is no louder or better (very little different in fact) than the sound from the much smaller Sony DAB pocket radio. I have two of those and absolutely love them. I don't love this quite as much. I thought, being at least twice the size, it would have a much bigger sound than its baby brother. It doesn't. But it sounds okay.
At least it works exactly the same as the smaller Sony radio, which is a very good thing indeed. The large display is almost identical except that it shows the time more prominently and has a different colour back-light. It adds two extra direct-access presets, and has a mains adapter instead of a USB adapter. The finish is a little less high-end though (the grey-blue (more grey in the flesh than I expected) plastic case has a curious 'elephant skin' texture and it feels a bit cheaper somehow. The speaker grille is metal. It's quite a nice looking radio overall, but the smaller version looks more stylish. Both have a headphone socket. Neither has an input for you to play music from a phone or tablet.
I'm using the excellent Amazon Basics high-power rechargeable AA batteries to power this radio, and they lasted an impressive six weeks before needing a recharge. You get a mains 'brick' in the box too, and if you use mains power, you can set the display back-light permanently to on and use what Sony calls a 'wake up timer'. This turns it into a clock radio of sorts.
When I bought this it was a little bit cheaper than the smaller Sony radio, surprisingly. As I said, I have two of those, and in retrospect perhaps should have bought a third one instead of this despite the price difference. This one is twice the size but has more or less the same sound quality. It needs AA batteries or mains power, whereas the smaller one uses self-contained USB power (though you can't replace the internal battery). The smaller one is easy to recommend as the best radio I've ever used, while this one is merely very good.
I am pleased I chose this little Sony radio, I wanted the red one but was not willing to pay £10 more for it than the black or white one which I chose.
Setting up the preset stations was a doddle, I did it with just a quick glance at the instruction leaflet. I like the way that the volume knob turns in increments and shows the level of volume. My one criticism and the reason that one star was withheld was that the power cable is black on a white radio.
I wish manufacturers would stop using black cable as most people have light coloured walls and a black lead looks so ugly, a choice would be a better option or at least use a white cable on a white radio.
Oh dear, after my glowing review above the radio stopped working in battery mode last week just two years since purchase.
I contacted Amazon through their technical support and they put me through to Sony technical support who told me that the cost of repair would be more than buying a replacement and thay were not prepared to replace the radio.
I believe the consumer rights act says that a product should last a reasonable time, call me old fashioned but I think a £50 radio should last more than two years. I have tried to get through to Amazon on the phone all week but but only get the engaged tone which is unusual as they usually answer very promptly and I have always found their customer service to be excellent in the psst.
