Excellent DAB and FM reception

Can be a bit fussy with some home recorded discs that play properly in other much older equipment. MP3 playback is a good feature.

Design is great, in particular the sliding CD draw looks really good, high sound quality for small speakers stays clear in low and high levels,wall mounting option is great for saving shelf space, DAB Radio and FM makes it future proof. Light weight...

Remote sometimes unresponsive, small display screen makes it difficult to read at distance

Philips MCB240


Compact,easily fitted on the wall, easy to set up and use, attractive to the eye, DAB radio as well as FM and CD player. Exactly what I wanted. I bought this for my 10 year old son and he is delighted.

The sound isn't the best ever,but it is still pretty good and well listenable. It wouldn't put me off buying it and I think you'd need to spend a lot more money to get a better sound.

Has a good sound to it and when Vol turned to max the sound doesn't distort!

The DAB radio sometimes goes out of tune but soon sorts itself out
