I bought this DAB radio to replace our old kitchen radio which I had left the batteries in for several years and they had corroded in.. This radio is an excellent means of playing our Bluetooth devices while in the kitchen and to listen to radio stations. It fulfils these functions well. We had a little bit of a struggle setting it up but once we understood how the device works we were fine. We're a bit disappointed that it doesn't come with a battery but given my track record with batteries it's not a show stopper.
