XDR-S40DBP 06/02/2014 by Mark21

I bought this as a portable DAB radio. The 10 presets are more than I need. I'm not interested in FM. The receiver is quite good, picking up TalkSport where another DAB radio does not. I've put batteries in but use it on mains power as DAB radios drain batteries. It is either wired up to my old stereos with their powerful amps and speakers to give them DAB capability or as a standalone. It also works (on batteries) in the car and I intend to power it from the car's cigarette lighter point.

It's a good enough radio for the price point. That said, it really uses up an awful lot of battery power and now we've had to invest in rechargables. Hmm.

Very dissapointed

XDR-S40DBP 09/14/2018 by Petteri52

Every now and then the radio doesn't shut off. You have to take out the batteries and pull out the cord. The same thing when turning on sometimes! Going to return it tomorrow.

Light weight, good for travel

XDR-S40DBP 04/13/2018 by Carrott

I wanted a small fairly lightweight radio to use in hotel rooms. This unit fits the bill. The sound is a little lightweight too, but the lack of bass means less possibility of disturbing the neighbours! As the unit is small and thin, it tips easily, but that isn't a huge problem. It does have a 'sleep' function (which I wanted), however, it doesn't have a direct access button and it's accessed through the menu.
