John Lewis Spectrum DAB/FM Digital Radio
Cable connection stopped soon after purchase and go through batteries really quickly
I like this radio, despite the volume being lower that I would have preferred. Unfortunately, the connection between the power cable and the radio stopped working really soon after I bought it - it became too loose to hold the cable where it slots into the radio. I have been using batteries but, as I use it nearly all day, one set of batteries only lasts three days. Unfortunately we have moved since I bought it (under a year ago) and I have lost the receipt, plus I live some distance from a store, otherwise I would have returned it and asked for a refund.

Very pleased with the Radio
Wanted a cheap DAB radio to replace the one in the bathroom so had to battery powered. Excellent replacement and good sound.

I was so impressed with the first one of these that I purchased, that I bought a second for my shed. I had previously tried a more expensive and well known make but it could not hold a station. This radio has no problems inside or out. I have one connected to a Bang and Olufsen stereo via an aux lead so that I can listen to it through the B&O speakers, and it's brilliant. It never loses signal and is simple to use. It may be only have basic features, but reception and quality of sound are the most important features, and this does not disappoint. I would thoroughly recommend.

Fantastic radio, fantastic customer service
Was bought this radio as a gift and I think its excellent. Decent sound quality for its size, looks good, and is easy to use. Very basic, but what more do you need. Signal pick up is really good picking up plenty of stations and the ability to run on batteries is actually rather good lasting much longer than other radios I have had.
The power cable is possibly a little bit weak, it bent very easily when I tried to push it in the wrong way round. I returned it to John Lewis as it stopped working, no quibbles at all, they replaced the entire radio there and then. Very impressed with the customer service.

incredible value for money
Wanted a radio for the bathroom and this radio fits the bill from every point of view. Digital reception is perfect with no need even to extend the aerial. DAB is power hungry so use rechargeable batteries and keep a spare set charged. True there's no tone control or presets but neither are really needed as sound quality is excellent and stations are listed alphabetically so easy to change.The hard part was choosing the colour-so many to choose from!

Great little radio
Needed a new radio for the kitchen, so plumped for this as it had had good reviews plus a nice range of colours.
As it turns out, it's a little belter. Lovely sound quality and easy set-up.
Got it 'Click and collect' next day.

Beautiful tone in a compact size
An attractive, compact and neat radio bought for use in our kitchen. Sounds as good as it looks with a lovely tone. Has the benefit of mains or batteries as a source of power (we keep it plugged into the socket on the wall). Simple and easy to use and search for stations. Really pleased with our purchase which comes with the reassurance of a two year guarantee.

Disappointing for a DAB radio
Digital sound poor, so product was returned.Not sure if the problem was individual to this item or all in the range.
