Written on: 05/01/2009 by johnadams (1 review written)

Very poor reception. I live in London so should get all DAB stations available. However, can only receive TalkSport clearly and BBC Radio 2 cuts in and out to the point it is useless. Every other station says STATION NOT AVAILABLE on the display. The FM band cannot receive a single station! When I place a Pure DAB in the same spot in the kitchen I get everything. Also only two pre-sets available. Very very disappointed. Will now scrap this and buy another Pure. There are so many alternatives… Read Full Review

Written on: 07/11/2006 by moorboy (1 review written)

This Intempo PG-01 was my first foray into DAB. At 99 quid it seemed like a lot. And was. Reception is very fickle on this machine. I've moved to 3 different houses since I owned this radio and it's been a challenge to get a good DAB signal at any of them. I'm in the middle of Nottingham, not out in the wilds of Scotland.
Components are very cheap on this box. The headphone jack is MONO. For those born after 1980, that's what they used to use before stereo. It was great until humans evolved… Read Full Review

“I bought the Intempo PG-01 DAB digital radio for £70...”

Written on: 11/01/2006 by broglet (4 reviews written)

I bought the Intempo PG-01 DAB digital radio for £70 to replace a cheap FM bedside clock radio, about a fifth its size and price, but which suffered from intolerable interference (I used to spend ages trying to get clear reception by repositioning its silly dangling wire aerial). At least the Intempo has an effective telescopic rod, is interference free on DAB, and has minimal interference on FM. And it has clock radio alarm/sleep functions.

The sound quality of the Intempo in DAB mode is… Read Full Review

Written on: 20/08/2007

After reading all the reviews of the Intempo PG-01 I must admit that I have been pleasantly surprised by the overall sound quality and sensitivity of the radio,especially in the DAB mode. HOWEVER, 1 big minus is the LCD screen which has started to 'FLICKER' and is very annoying as there does not seem to be any method of accessing the troublesome LCD (or,repairing the faulty bulb).I tried e-mailing INTEMPO but got no reply.
<br/>CAN ANYONE ADVISE ME HOW TO REPAIR / GAIN ACCESS TO THE LCD ?

Written on: 16/11/2004 by asw20driver (1 review written)

Agree with most of the other Reviews about the Intempo PG-01. Sound and ability to receive weak signals is good. LED is bright. One word of warning, replace the rubber feet if you have a painted bedside table. They bled blue stain into the top of our table totally ruinning it. The stain will not come off with any solvent I have tried and seems to soak right into painted surfaces… Read Full Review

Written on: 07/10/2004 by ciswift (4 reviews written)

I have owned the Intempo PG-01 for about 8 months now and have no real complaints. Sound quality is good, though be warned a lot of DAB stations are broadcast in mono or at low data rates, but this is a fault of DAB in general and not the unit. Besides the speakers are so close together on this and similar units it does not make a significant difference. You can add an external Aerial via the 'f' connector on the rear of the unit, which I did (built one myself) and could get loads more stations… Read Full Review

Written on: 30/06/2004 by scarborian (32 reviews written)

As this Intempo PG-01 DAB Digital Radio was my first DAB purchase I did the usual research and initially opted for the Goodmans GSR80 due to its good looks, price and the fact that it included the FM waveband. After using the Goodmans for just a few hours though, it became clear that this was not the unit for me with poor sound quality and and poor sensitivity being the main problems.
My home location is classed as an "Amber" area for DAB reception so I needed a receiver with good sensitivity… Read Full Review

Scarborian's Response to scarborian's Review

Written on: 03/07/2004

Up-date............It appears the telescopic aerial on this unit is attached using an F-connector similar to that used on satellite receivers and Sky digiboxes etc. So, with a quick twist of a pair of long nose pliars it was removed and replaced with a Maxview VHF/DAB dipole purchased from B&Q for £9.98p. (The kit includes an F-connector as standard.) The signal now romps in and lights up all the bars on the units signal strength meter. Result!
<br>I now have 39 stations off three multiplex's and all are "muddy water" free.

Written on: 27/04/2004 by GSmith (1 review written)

I looked around for no particular DAB digital radio until I came across the Intempo PG-01 unit produced by a British company. The absolute best price I came across is on Ebay. I got mine for £75 and no other seller could come anywhere close. You can also bid for 1 starting from only £1 with NO RESERVE. I couldn't wait so I used the buy it now feature. Search for 'Intempo DAB' on ebay and you will find 1 for yourself. Goodluck… Read Full Review

I have just purchased an Intempo PG-01 for £90, so i was reallly suprised to see the last review,
(by the way I checked the user guide and with DAB Digital Radio you do need to do a system reset if you move the radio to a different area; perhaps thats the reason for the poor sound quality experienced by the other reviewer?) - my radio tuned into 57 stations, all of which are received perfectly, with warm clear sound, and even the wife can change station which is a miracle! We live in sheltered… Read Full Review

Written on: 06/04/2004 by radiohead (1 review written)

Bought this Intempo PG-01 DAB Digital Radio from Dixons, but couldn't get reception in store, so took it home. First thing I noticed was how rubbish the sound was and the distortion at any level above 50% volume. Then I realised it did not have a wood veneer, only a cheap paper skin, which I am sure would start peeling off. I also felt the product and did not like the clicky buttons. I took it back and bought the PURE Evoke-1 which sounded a whole heap better even being in Mono!!! The EVOKE-1… Read Full Review

Written on: 02/12/2003 by atheana (2 reviews written)

Ever since I discovered certain digital radio stations which I really enjoy, I've been hooked on digital radio - either listening online or through a recently purchased Evoke 2. And here I was thinking how nice it would be to have an alarm clock radio which was digital and voila! I saw an advert for this Intempo PG-01 digital radio, did some online research (reviews and prices) and decided to add this one to the collection - and I'm delighted. Because the Evoke 2 is on the largish side, I… Read Full Review

Written on: 30/11/2003 by apprentice (1 review written)

I spent some time looking at and listening to DAB radios in my local Currys and what impressed me about the Intempo PG-01, was that it picked up a number of stations clearly, despite being surrounded by hundreds of working video/audio/pc equipment displays in the store! It looked good and was priced under £100. On getting it home I was amazed that it found 45 stations, many where out of my area, yet they were received clearly. The setup was straight forward, the only time I referred to the… Read Full Review

Written on: 04/11/2003 by itsjustlynn (1 review written)

I bought this Intempo PG-01 DAB radio for my husband but like it so much I've kept it in my lounge. It works by just flipping through all the stations. I can actually get 46 on my Intempo even though the postcode checker said I was in an amber area. The sound is much better than I expected, it is so much clearer than a normal radio and well worth the extra money although it is still expensive… Read Full Review
