THIS IS THE ONLY DAB RADIO IN OUR HOUSE AT THE MOMENT AND IT IS LINKED TO THE HI-FI SYSTEM. WE'VE HAD THE PANASONIC FOR MORE THAN 3 YEARS. SOUND QUALITY THROUGH THE HIFI IS SUPERB, EVEN ON THE ROD AERIAL. THE DREADED P76PDET FAULT CROPPED UP TODAY. WE TOO THOUGHT IT WAS DESTINED TO BE AN EXPENSIVE REPAIR, THEN FOUND THE HELP ON THIS WEBSITE - HOLD DOWN THE POWER AND MENU BUTTONS TOGETHER. NO PROBLEM SINCE… Read Full Review

had the rfd1 for over 2 years. it worked fine although the reception ability fluctuates from day to day. it then developed the dreaded f76 pdet fault code and i thought it was doomed!!! luckily i read about a solution to the problem.... press the power button & menu button for a few seconds at the same time... try it a couple of times if required... it worked for me!!!… Read Full Review

Some stations are good, some not so good [breaking up] so I put this down to the area I live in. Sound quality okay though a little "artificial" through the unit's own speakers, so I play it through my midi hi-fi auxilliary socket instead. I've had two other portable DAB radios and this one receives more stations than one of them, so guess it's better than average for this area. Overall, quite happy with it though now a little concerned that other people have found there's pack up and show a… Read Full Review

I received the Panasonic RF-D1 as a gift from a friend, I haven't the heart to tell the friend for the last 2 years the rf-d1 as been sitting on the kitchen shelf displaying the "F76 PDET" logo in it's screen. I had approx 15 months use fom this equipment… Read Full Review

The Panasonic RFD1 Visually looks attractive.
Not too heavy. Packed up after 18 months occasional use. It is displaying the code F76 PDET which means it has to go to a dealer for repair. Is it worth the repair cost I wonder. I am about to find out what the charge will be. Give me a simple 'channel preset' radio without all the gimmicks at a fraction of the cost. I bought this as a present for my wife and I think it is out of politeness that she wants it mended. I don't think it's worth it.
She… Read Full Review

My Panasonic RFD1 is now 3 years old and still working well, and I use it all the time, in my truck when I`m at work, at home, in fact anywhere. The sound, when played through a good hi-fi is 1st class. I use a mini fm transmitter to send the sound to my truck`s own radio for better sound quality, works a treat!!! Its been dropped a few times with no damage to it other than a few scratches so its tough as well… Read Full Review

Nice looking compact DAB Digital Radio. Sounds much better with FM than DAB especially with equaliser set to off. Menu system is over complicated. DAB reception is poor with interference. Batteries last very short time due to excessive power consumption. Bulky transformer with thin flimsy wire.
The Panasonic RFD1 has manufacturing fault where F76 PDET is displayed on the screen. The 5 volt regulator (marked Q315 on the circuit board) will have failed as it gets excessively hot in DAB mode… Read Full Review

Panasonic RFD1 Dab should advertise the battery consumption is high ,and digital radios are supposed to be more advanced? I think digital radios are still overpriced considering they have been out a long time now. Should have just kept to the old analogue radio. With that I had no problems!… Read Full Review

Don't buy the Panasonic RFD1 when you can get the pure evoke. I bought this, friend bought the pure. No contest. I thought panasonics would be good sounding but whilst its great through the hifi the speakers are rubbish. The reception is also inferior to the pure.
Pretty good in isolation but trounced by the pure evoke 1… Read Full Review
