    Anyone got this machine? bought it myself thursday just gone, from asda because it was reduced from £89.99 > £69.99 and also because it looked like a modern machine unlike virtually all of the other DAB radios on sale at the moment.


    After bringing it home unpacking and turning on i could not belive how good it looked and also it was a doodle to setup and the sound was crystal clear. I was very happy until last night and all day today it seems to be acting strange. Most of the time the signal quality says around the region of 95-99% but then for no reason it drops to 44 and it wont play any stations because its below the limit i think. The only way to get it back to normal is to do a hard reboot so it forgets all the settings then retunes when its turned on again. Strange wondering if anyone else has this problem or maybe its a faulty machine.

    edit: forgot to say timeslip is very good, bad point is no mute which is silly i think.

    All in all if it is a faulty machine this is a amazing system from the looks to the sound quality listening to five live on normal MW radio is out the window now all the hissing and crackles heh.

    Hi Ronaldinho,

    I bought one of these puppies second hand from RIcher Sounds. I got it cheap so it was without manual or power cable.

    I've found the same problems with the DAB tuning. AT the moment, I can't get any station on DAB. The AUtotune just sits and I can;t manual tune at all. And I've tried hard rebooting which hasn;t worked.
    Any hints you have would be most welcomed.

    Thank god for FM, I can still listen to something at least.

    Not sure if chaning the DRC value helps at all. ON mine there is only 0, 1/2 and 1.
