I bought this Goodmans GSR-80 receiver since it operated on batteries my Evoke 1 is mains only. The Evoke 1 receives all digital services in my area. I switched on the Goodmans and got no response except broken audio as it struggled to receive stations. Taking the radio outside and around the house I could not locate a position of good reception. The receiver lacks sensitivity. When I eventually found a position where I received Radio 4 sound was very tinny. After 5 mins reception ceased as the… Read Full Review

I must say when I bought this Goodmans GSR-80 radio for £69.99 I wasn't expecting much. But when I opened it up I was plesently suprised to see audio-out options, I was like 'great if the speakers suck I can put them into decent ones.'
When I turned on the screen I was pleasantly suprised as it automatically searched for stations without having to lift a finger and it was all set-up without pressing one button.
The radio is both battery and mains compatible (mains included) which is also a… Read Full Review

I bought a Goodmans GSR-80 expecting clear reception and good sound quality, mainly with a view to listening to 'voice' radio rather than music.
On my first radio the LCD screen did not function at all so I exchanged it for a another one. The second radio had a tendancy to turn itself off now and then (on mains operation) which was a bit annoying but the main let down was the reception and sound quality.
The sound quality always sounded a bit 'muffled' and I felt a tone control would have… Read Full Review

I have the Pure Digital Tempus-1 DAB Digital Radio, which is excellent in all respects, except that it is mains operated only. I wanted a cheaper battery- operated alternative and chose this Goodmans GSR-80 DAB. I was very disappointed at first as reception (commented on in another review and in What Hi-Fi) seemed poor, even though the Tempus-1 is always 100%. This only lasted for the first evening however and for a week now I have had perfect reception in every room in the house. Bad… Read Full Review

I decided to take the plunge and treat myself to a new digital radio. I wanted something under £100, that worked on batteries as well as mains - (I like to listen to my radio in the bath), sounded great and looked good. Quite a tall order!
Like every savvy consumer, I did my usual research on the internet and plodded my way around my local Currys, Dixons etc.
I had a look at the Evoke 1 and Intempo models. Neither of these took my fancy with boxy retro styling, only mains operation and a… Read Full Review

I purchased this Goodmans GSR-80 DAB radio along with 2 other products (Intempo PG-01 and Bush DABCR2003) so I could compare a range of radios. It was difficult to find the GSR-80 in the shops, maybe because it is a new model.
First impressions were good, with regards to specification, its shiny chrome solid looks (a change from wooden cabinets) slim design and mains/battery operation. It was relatively easy to set up and the bright blue screen was very clear. I liked the Line-Out socket… Read Full Review
