After having gone through a plethora of CD players and being fed up with not being able to control the volume of my HiFi remotely, I bought an Onkyo CR515DAB as a convenience.
I must have been asleep. It was only when I got it home and listened to it that I realised how bad the sound is. Check the specs: 1% THD. ONE PERCENT.
The DAB radio won't work without an external antenna: the bit of string it comes with is utterly pointless - only serving to pick up any stray RF from other bits of electronics in the room.
Other than that, it's great. The remote control works as expected and it is small.
One of these days I'll put it out of its misery and buy a NAD.
