    I see Argos have an Alba radio for £39.99. Anyone got one of these?

    If it's the TRDAB2820 then I got one from WHSmiths about 3 weeks ago for £29.99 so might be worth you trying there to see if they have any left. It is excellent value for the money, though the speaker is a bit on the tinny side. Reception is excellent and is perfect wherever I have it in the house.

    At least from Argos you can always take it back if you don't like it.

    That is a good point and I can check what channels are coming in. On the post code search it doesn't look promising but that is the same as the one that tells me I shouldn't have been getting Freeview (Ondigital) for the last four years!

    Alba is bush, so I expect it would have the same electronics as a Bush.
    Goodmans also is under the same name.

    Just bought Alba DAB2821 from Makro paid £39.99 plus VAT

    Considering the cost the sound quality is pretty good and radio also has FM as well.
