Wanted a small radio for the garden with the updated technology such as Bluetooth and was very pleased with what I got. Nice and compact and ideal for listening to DAB radio or music from my phone. Looks good too and takes very little space up and very portable, I like the strong handle that is ideal for carrying in and out of the garden. I Wanted to ensure that I purchased and installed the right rechargeable batteries so read the manual and it states quite clearly that N.MHi Rechargeable LR6 batteries must be used to avoid damage to the radio, after spending a day look for LR6 rechargeable batteries in various shops they only had HR6 so contacted the supplier who through back a statement that "any" AA batteries could be used ! which conflicts with themanual. Now waiting for a reply whether HR6 and LR6 rechargeable batteries can be used and unable to use this facility which is why I scored only 4 stars. Usually Amazon state when purchasing items that when brought additional items were purchased with it such as batteries but not on this occasion.
I purchased this radio for my bedroom, there is alot to like about it eg. Bluetooth, Usb, 2 alarms and waking up to a set channel. All of these things are great, I just think the radio looks unsightly and the sound quality isn't very good, but in the bedroom it's fine for the amount of time that it is used.
A nice looking radio with the ability to charge its internal rechargeable AA batteries. The blue-tooth worked very well with my smartphone. Its a good radio for the bedroom but i'd say not the kitchen or bathroom as I believe its not good with wet or greasy hands. The only thing I did not like was the 'set alarm' buttons. I keep pressing them by mistake when aiming for the preset buttons. Consequently the radio some times wakes me up in the morning when I'm not expecting it to.
4.0 out of 5 starsPortable, stylish and versatile.

I love the look of this small DAB radio and it is very portable for round the house. The sound and reception are good and I can play music or my audio books through easily. It was quick and easy to set up and I am getting a lot of pleasure from this .... it can be set up as an alarm clock and the light is not very intrusive at the low level. Overall a stylish and useful machine that unlike many of my speakers/devices that I use for work/home it is great for taking away when we holiday in the UK.
