OK Jazz FM S does work but cuts out does not seem anywhere near as good as the Blaupunkt BPR-3 which gets it 100% by the window.
at least its DAB+ though.

Thanks Peter (pe1etr) for pointing out the Roberts Play at £49.99 in Argos and Curry's.
I confim it as my most highly recommended portable radio for DAB DXing:

You're welcome. A pity I'd already bought two other DAB radios or I'd buy the Roberts Play.

Myself I use a small Akai ADB10 for DAB, small transistor and paid 35 euros for it. It is very sensitive. In last 15 months I received 53 Mux from 7 countries. I live in Holland on the German border.
Since it was so good and cheap I bought a second Akai radio and I bought the Nikkei ADB10 which is completely similar. Both are not so sensitive as my first Akai! Strange, that there appear to be differences in reception quality although it is exactly the same radio!
Receivers:
General: Grundig satellit 650, Lowe HF-225, Tecsun PL660
FM; Degen De1103
DAB: Akai ADB10(2x), Nikkei ADB10, Technisat.
All with telescope antenna. I use a home-built(not by myself, :D ) Loopantenna on the satellit for mediumwave

Hi there !

My tiny Sony XDR-P1DBP is still OK, but I intend to soon purchase a new portable radio.
Are there some fine new items on the market or are the DPR 65 / 69+ and the Roberts Play still the ones to go for ?
Which one offers the best audio quality ? (the Sony is great despite its size).

Thanks !

It's good. I have one. Well, I had one. I accidentally put the laptop power supply into it and it went 'pop'! Then I ordered the power amp IC, assuming that's what had blown, but I destroyed the PCB trying to replace it.

As long as you plug the correct power supply into it, you should have a good radio there! It's a but deaf on FM until you plug in an external antenna. Then it's good, if a bit wide.
