    Nice sound but a few unfortunate points

    Vermandel Michiel | 20 January 2021 | Color: Black | Automatically translated from Dutch

    • Warm sound
    • design
    • Big screen
    • remote control
    • Loss of connection
    • Start-up time
    • DAB+ no Qmusic

    This radio produces a warm and pleasant sound! Too bad he needs a lot of time to 'wake up'. When you turn it on, it takes almost half a minute before it starts playing. Another Internet radio I tested does not have this problem. Occasionally the radio also loses its internet connection or has to buffer. The other device does not have this problem either. Furthermore, the DAB+ radio does not find all popular stations. Again, the other device can.
    Furthermore, I really don't understand the design of the remote. It contains buttons such as 'WPS' and 'Language'. You only need it once during the setup of the device and never again afterwards. Other buttons such as 'back' / return in a menu, a button to select Internet radio or DAB or AUX... are missing. A really weird choice.

    Nice sound, but still a few snags...

    Great radio!

    Great radio. Bought for my elderly mother. Unfortunately, the buttons on the remote are very small for her. The buttons on the radio are hard to read in the dark. It would be easier if the function of the buttons was placed on the buttons instead of above them.

    Good purchase.

    This radio is a nice addition to my living room. Plays beautiful sound in several ways (including dab+, internet radio, spotify and bluetooth). Price-quality ratio is, a more expensive investment compared to the smaller model, but definitely worth it.
