First Impressions Digital radio is still quite a new concept to many people. I have owned portable digital radios for some time now, so I do know at least a 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...

Works a treat

None

I posses a wide range of different model from the Roberts Internet Radio to a DAB radio there are a few in my collection but the one I keep in the bathroom is this Sony Model (XDR...

“So-So Radio”

published 14/11/2011

Works well, robust and good sound

flimsy aerial

I used to sell radios and other electronic equipment in my younger days 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...

No 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...

This really is a nice little radio. Good sound from the single speaker. Nice clear display on the screen. Volume is very loud. Is ideal for kitchens and great for the garden in the summer. It has an extendible Ariel if you need it. I think the stations are easy to find. Runs off batteries as well...
