Q & As

Rated 2.8 out of 5 by 27 reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5 by reasonably good Sound quality is very good. I had some difficulty setting more than 4 stations. Still not completed this. I like to listen at night. The streamlined layout makes it hard to distinguish the different buttons in the dark. 26 May 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Mostly good product V good radio. Easy to set stations. Sleep button works well. The alarm function has let me down. 26 May 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Useful product Reliable but a bit unwieldy to tune, set alarm, etc. No dimmer facility is real drawback. 12 May 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Not perfect - but ok I chose this radio because it definitely doesn't forget its settings in a power cut of which we have many (the reason for getting rid of my existing). The instructions are unnecessarily detailed and complicated; it took a long time to set up. One annoying thing when it starts up is that is is not loud enough - I have to turn it up every morning. It is MEANT to remember the volume when you last turned it off but that is clearly not so. But it does everything else a clock radio should do. 29 April 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by The Good, Bad and The Stupid The Good - picks up lots of DAB stations, straight out of the box. Sets itself up for time. Has more than one alarm. You can set alarm time just to be weekday or 7 days. The second alarm you have to setup by date and time. Seems a little bit of overkill, but easy enough to do. All functions are logical and easy to setup, but some like the second alarm can have too many steps. The Bad - the display is awful. Its good that there are 4 settings for brightness, but its also lit from the side - so its always got an orange glow. Looks like a cheap old LED display - it isn't but looks cheap. The display can't show name of song unless you select it, most DAB radios will scroll different functions - so you can get radio station and track being played. Here its one or the other. The Stupid - The radio alarm increases volume once its switches on. If left it will go right up to maximum volume. I use a radio alarm to wake up gently - I don't want it really loud. You can't programme what volume you want the radio alarm to be on. The only way around it, is to reach over in the dark, press the On/Off switch. If you then press On /Of again it will default to the programmed volume for normal radio operation. Good luck with finding the On / Off button in the dark, its one of the many buttons on the top of the system. Would have been a 3 star review if the clock radio actually worked like every other one I've ever used. 25 March 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Dreamtime DAB Great product especially for the money. Easy to use, good manual, good sounds and all functions easy to understand and set. Very happy customer. 30 December 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Works as I want it to The manual has good instructions; I can set the clock to turn off the radio, so I can listen and drift off to sleep leaving it burbling, knowing it will turn itself off without disturbing me. The back light is adjustable, I can re-set buttons in the dark by just feeling the ridges of the buttons. The alarm is easy to set, and pre-set stations easy to find. I am not technologically very competent! 04 December 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by As a clock it's a good radio This isn't really a three star review. The radio aspect of this device is very good - reception is clear, it picks up new stations and the time by itself. However I found the buttons fiddly -- and more to the point, the clock readout is unnecessarily small. I found it hard to read without my glasses on (so impractical while in bed!) and the readout is also cluttered, containing other information including the day of the week - one normally knows which day of the week it is! As a result, because it was intended as a bedside alarm / radio and I didn't find it suitable for that purpose, it's going back. 03 November 2014
