    You will NOT get good reception on any personal DAB, especially if used indoors.

    If you receive something, then it is a bonus. ;)

    I finally decided to put my money where my mouth is and try a Sony XDRM1.

    I've had it 3 days now and it is very good. I expected indoor DAB reception to be poor but that's not the case. We don't live in a very strong area but it is perfectly useable.

    I bought a Philips DAB 1000, £99 from Comet. very pleased with quailty of sound and reception. Even better is the fact it comes with rechargable batteries and seeing as they last for approx 10 hours would be bloody expensive to use alkeline ones :)

    I've had a Ministry of Sound MOSDR011 for about 18months now, and I'm very pleased with it. Mainly use it for Sporting Commentary (i.e. you can get Radio 5 Sports xtra on it for the cricket), but the music stations are also decent and clear.

    Like the post above states, you do need rechargeable batteries though. A handfull of Uniross 2500mAh AA's will see you through nicely. ;)

    That's a very good price for the Sony. I't usually between £100-£150 but yes it's the small black thing. Of all the ones I tried, the Sony was the only one that gave good reception in poor signal areas.

    A couple of points to watch with the sony.

    1: It scratches very easily! ( why don't sony do a case)

    2: If you carry it round in your pocket the side exit for the headphones is a pain.
    I'm on my 2nd because the strain on the headphone socket has bust a connection. (I have to say no complaints a sony customer service)

    Oh the battery flap can beak off.
