  4. Amanda Seddon

  5. Dave

    Fantastic portable radio, perfect for my needs as I work away from home. Very easy to set up and you can be listening within 5 minutes of getting it out the box. Nicely designed too – very stylish!

  6. Graham

  7. Wayne

    Great little radio which is indeed very portable, you can take it nearly anyway. Also it has plenty of volume if you need it.
    Setup was super quick and easy and I was listening to digital radio within minutes. Plus for a little radio I am very impressed with the sound quality.
    It also has a dimmer function on the screen. Meaning you can save extra power if you are running it on batteries which is very useful. To be honest I currently only run mine off the mains but it’s still nice to know the function is there if I want to use it.
    So far I am very happy with this unit.

  66. Anonymous

    Very happy with this radio. Alexa was playing up on the radio front and kept cutting out. I can now listen to Radio 4 without that frustration. I probably wouldn’t use it to listen to music channels, but really happy with it for the purpose I bought it for.

  67. Ian Smith

  68. Simon davis

  69. Fleur Lakin

    Received this radio as a gift. Nice looking, good quality sound.

  70. neil

    great value for money

  71. Mark Staughton

    Great little radio, good sound, solid base and love the rose colour. Easy to set up with the automatic scanning function. This will be gifted to friends and family in the future.

  72. Phil Louden

    5 stars given for value for money. Great little radio and DAB is reasonably sensitive. Sound quality is ok but don’t expect hifi sound. Has some issues with battery life and really needs a permanent power supply (using the supplied 5V microUSB adapter) particularly if you want to use the alarm function.
    Unit draws about 75mA when switched on at half volume so even decent quality Alkaline AA batteries will only last about 25 hours. When in standby (just with time/date displayed and radio off), draw is still about 30mA so batteries will be dead in 3 days. When completely off (blank display) current is about 0.02mA but note that the alarm function does not work in this mode. If you need to use the alarm function, you probably should use the AC adapter.

  73. Tom goodyear

    Very good radio. Have to be careful to switch off completely as the display runs the batteries down very quickly.

  74. John Mehen

    Compact size and good sound quality sound. Clear instructions but the buttons and display might be difficult for those with poor eyesight.

  95. A J Read

    I asked for a Histon Radio for one reason.
    Cambridge.
    The radio was smaller than expected but it delivered on sound, punching well above its weight. It scanned the stations without me and I have only been using it for a day but it does everything I want from a radio. I am still amazed at the sound quality from such a small radio

    Great Radio! Impressed so bought another to take outside while gardening
