Great Kit
17 Aug 2013
By Anonymous
, Sheffield
"Certainly the best sounding radio I've owned or heard on site. And I've been at this for nearly 30yrs. Quite impressive playing time on 18v Makita battery for a DAB radio which are usually notorious at their ability to suck the life out of batteries in the blink of an eye."

"Fantastic radio which has been used on site but also for camping and on our boat, it gives good quality sound and reliable signal even when in isolated places. Battery is easy to install and lasts a good while, all in all very pleased with it."

Brilliant little tool!

By Craftycockney

"Was hard to convince me that it would be worth the money but after 2 days on site with it, I'm fully convinced! Lightweight, rugged and as I've never had a DAB radio before, was amazed at how many station you can get! for middle aged farts like me, its gotta be Absolute 80s!!!
100% recommended!"

Excellent
7 Jan 2013
By DicMaxilla
, Leeds
"This is a brilliant radio, I had the old version and upgraded to the DAB to get my favourite stations.
The sound quality is far superior, it goes ridiculously loud with no distortion.
I use with the lithium 3.0ah batteries and they easily last a full day at a moderate volume.
Highly recommended!"

"Don't know much about Makita’s and this type of radios but bought it for my boyfriend as a Christmas present! I ordered it through the internet and pick up at the same day from Sydenham branch! Great customer services!!
My boyfriend was over the moon! So I guess - the product is brilliant. He spend the whole Christmas with that radio next to him!!
Girls - go for it if you want some spare time to go shopping!!!!

Fantastic Sound System
27 Dec 2012
By Gramic
, Kilmarnock
"Really pleased with this, and the sound is excellent - thought about the basic model, but the DAB sound is fantastic, although a bit fiddly to set up the DAB pre-sets in the first instance. The FM Set-up is straightforward and easy - This is the machine to get for first class sounds on any site."
