DAB radio
DAB (Digital Audio Broadcasting) digital radio is the newest way of broadcasting radio via a network of terrestrial transmitters, on top of older FM analogue transmissions. It provides listeners with more choices and information delivered in clear and crackle-free sound quality. The technology allows the receiver to lock on to the strongest signal it can be find. With DAB digital stations there are no frequencies to remember, and sets are tuned by station name, so there is no retuning required when you're on the move.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Sorry I can not recommend this radio Sorry I can not recommend this radio, it's my second one, they both intermittently lost sound but with full display & now they're silent. The first was replaced under warranty.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Features need review. I normally would buy another well known brand but the finish of this radio was perfect for my sideboard. The sound is good...if you like a lot of bass. I would prefer a control to reduce the bass for news/speech. It's quite boomy at times. A on/off switch would be nice as the radio has a delay on switch on and you have to stand there for a few seconds to adjust the volume. Add rotary tuning and easier preset selection... .maybe with another rotary control for presets?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The product is easy to use. I was getting MAGIC radio on my television. I had to get my television repaired, it came back with no MAGIC radio. My daughter had a look on the internet and found me this product at a very good price. It had D.A.B. which I had not had before on a radio. The sound from this product was excellant. It tuned it self into a number of radio stations. The 3 watts is too much for my ears, when I truned the nob the wrong way.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from this product is very good What I don't understand is why there is no stereo output and if so how obtainable? Apart from this a very good tone and a fine piece of equipment the instant tuning is a major selling point. On a many other models it has to be set. Very nice.

Check the measurements guys. The depth of 148mm looks wrong

As shown in the user guide on the downloads tab for this product these are the dimensions provided by Phillips.
