Good on DAB and DAB+, overload problems on FM, but has RDS.

Looks good - what's the battery life like, Peter? The big benefit of DAB+ is it shows the radio has a newer chipset with considerably reduced power consumption. IMO there's no other reason to buy a DAB+ radio until there's any stations worth listening to :(

I only bought it yesterday and have just used it for testing and comparisons. It takes 4 AA batteries. It didn't come with a power supply, although it has a socket for one.
Nothing on radio in the UK is worth listening too IMHO...except live sport commentaries ;)

Comparison video will be uploaded soon.

It's fine. You probably clicked it too early before.
