The retro-inspired tabletop Sony XDR-S16DBP DAB/FM radio has an appealing wood finish and stereo speakers. Its screen is small, so it may not be the best choice if you like to read scrolling text broadcast on DAB, but if you're mostly interested in listening to your favourite digital radio stations, this Sony DAB radio may be worth a listen.

We gradually reduce the DAB signal to find out which radios are most sensitive to picking up weaker signals. A high score here will not guarantee DAB reception as there is not currently full UK DAB coverage, but the best models stand a better chance of being able to pick up slightly weaker DAB signals.
