Are you rustling a bag of crisps or is that Radio 1?

AdvantagesLooks more than a budget digital radio, neat features, portable, affordable.

DisadvantagesSound quality, loss of presets if disconnected from power.

"...little bit about them. The Sony XDR S55DAB was priced at around £35 when I bought it last year. Although digital radio can still be quite expensive they have certainly dropped in price over the last couple of years. This particular model is available in a number of colours, though I own a plain black one that fits in well with most rooms in my house. The looks are quite simple, with clean lines all round and fussy detailing largely absent. ..." Read review

Not the friendliest of radios

AdvantagesNice size. Rugged. Ideal for bed-side use.

DisadvantagesPoor battery life. Memory loss when unpowered. Poor DAB reception even when FM is OK. No external

Great portable radio

AdvantagesWorks a treat

DisadvantagesNone

"...in the bathroom is this Sony Model (XDR S55DAB). I paid £27.99 for this just before Xmas to replace a radio that was on the out and it has shown its quality all round, and impressed me greatly. One thing which impressed me greatly was the aerial on this which is very powerful. I live in a ground floor flat and sometimes I find it hard getting receptions on radio’s particularly and this has caused problems. However, despite being the cheapest in ..." Read review

So-So Radio

AdvantagesWorks well, robust and good sound

Disadvantagesflimsy aerial

"...and I have had my Sony XDRS55DABB.CEK radio now for a year or so. I admit to not using it that much as it is not one of the better ones I have owned and it is now relegated to one of the lower down drawers in my basement where I keep stuff I don't use too often. This was bought as a portable radio for my own personal use but I have been personally somewhat disappointed with the length of the battery life to be honest. I find that it works far better ..."

Sony XDRS55: Great semi-portable DAB radio

AdvantagesGood sound, Simple interface, Comes with AC adaptor, LCD has orange glow, hold switch

DisadvantagesNo alarm, Ariel is a bit flimsy,

"I have owned this Sony DAB radio for approximately 2 months and have used it very often. General Use: The interface is simple and easy to use. The LCD screen lights up with an orange glow which is quite a unique feature. It has a sleep function, but no alarm wakeup. It can receive both DAB and FM signals, and also has 3 preset station buttons. There is also a hold switch, which i have never used. Battery Life: When using it out and about, I tend ..." Read review
