Very Good but doesn't have AM


This is a very good DAB/FM/Ipod Dock but the Argos catalogue incorrectly states that it has an AM tuner. So if Mediuim wave is important to you it won't be the right choice.

Superb piece of kit


I make no apology for being a Sony fan and this justifies my stance.

Absolutely Fantastic


Based on previous ratings, I bought this after thinking about it for weeks. All I can say is that it is so good, I purchased one for the second bedroom also. Highly recommended.
