Just bought this off EBAY. Big mistake! It was supposed to replace a Pure 1500 which had suddenly given up the ghost for some reason. However, we find that on our usual walk along the beach the reception is useless for most of the time. I did find one spot where reception was good for a few hundred yards but then it went back to the constant fading and loss of signal. Screen is difficult to read; not bright enough and basically it's a step backwards for Sony who used to be a reliable company. Wish… Read Full Review

I made the mistake of choosing the Sony XDRM1 model based on Sony's reputation in personal stereos, without checking their reviews first. I won't make that mistake again! The sound quality is superb as long as you place the radio at least a metre away from you, preferably hung over a bush, but you can't walk while it's playing as you won't get any reception if you do. If you want a DAB personal stereo with great reception and a long battery life, check out the Pure 1500 Personal DAB Radio… Read Full Review

This is my first DAB portable radio which is on it's way back to Sony because the external power adapter does not work resulting in high battery usage. The sound quality is exceptional, providing the radio is stationary. However, whenever I move with the radio on the reception becomes poor, which is not my idea of how a portable radio should function
The design is great but the poly-carbonate case is easily scratched and I would have expected better quality or at least a case to put the radio… Read Full Review

Got a pure digital pocket radio for christmas last year which was fantastic, however due to my own carelessness I dropped and broke it, thus giving my missus the opportunity to provide me with a new dab portable radio.
Sorry Sony but there is just no comparision between the reception I got on my old Pure radio and my new very pretty but digitally challanged XDRM1.
I had to scan a number of times before picking up any stations at all, but the quality of reception is just pathetic. Sony would… Read Full Review

It's very hard to be positive about the Sony XDRM1 portable DAB radio because of the hopeless reception. I live in South West London where a scan found 5 stations. Everywhere else in the UK I have tried it hasn't found a single station. I bought the XDRM1 to use when travelling - not to use at home, and it is hopeless. Which Magazine had it as a Best Buy with excellent sound quality, which is fine, but if you can't receive any stations you can't get any sound! If you don't intend to use this… Read Full Review
