Philips AE800/10 Internet Clock Radio, what a pleasure to wake up to a radio station instead of an annoying buzz. I can’t comment on the DAB /

Good radio, good sound and quite good worth for funds.

This is a excellent internet radio. I have tried using a good deal of wi-fi radios and this is one of the finest. It is easy to setup, excellent audio for a compact radio, manyinternet station readily available on it and finest of all it picks up pretty weak wi-fi signals effortlessly. It has an external ariel which is probably the reason. The only down facet is the very smaller distant handle, you have to push some buttons 2 times to preserve stations and it does not usually work.

Set-up was simple and no concerns. Intelligent how browsing the frontier wi-fi world wide web web page routinely updates the radio with your selected favorites. 3 favourite buttons on the facade is minimum – 4 or five would be great. Clock illumination when the radio is on in a dark home is also solid – rest interference.Most significant difficulty is with the lack of treble in the seem – no tone adjustment attainable. Submitted my concern on that to philips on-line and they, in fairness, were being superb with the comply with up. If not, a grand small radio.

“what a pleasure to wake up to a radio station instead of an annoying buzz. I can’t comment on the DAB / , Excellent radio if you have a weak signal this is the answer., Set-up was easy and no issues”

Lastly we have a radio reception in the bed room due to the internet radio. . What a satisfaction to wake up to a radio station in its place of an annoying buzz. I cannot remark on the dab / fm perform as we have no reception, practically nothing to do with the radio just where by we are living. Only criticism (and for this reason the four stars) is the show is awful vibrant at night time irrespective of remaining established on the cheapest location. Some coloured plastic movie trapped around the screen before long dims this nevertheless but ought to i will need to do that ?update 15th march 2018lived with the radio now for virtually 2 months. The radio requires an age to connect to wifi and in some cases doesn’t at all irrespective of the router becoming positioned just exterior the doorway. When it doesn’t hook up it goes to the default buzzer alarm which scares the bejeepers out of me and there is no way on earth you will rest as a result of that. Knowing what i know now i would not or procured this and paid the extra for the roberts. The other definitely truly annoying thing is just how bright the display screen is in the pitch dark. It illuminates the place even on the least expensive placing, i have had to adhere transparent film above the show just to dim it to an acceptable degree.

Great looking radio and great sound top quality for the dimensions. Would have favored to have seen additional input solutions. Usb etcetera but apart from that are unable to fault it. A person annoying problem is with the clock. Now this may well be me, but i have established it a few of occasions and when we change it again on it shows 01-01-2014 and absolutely the wrong time. We will not use it for the time, but it should really do the job if it is a feature. As i say, i might have missed something and i have not knocked any marks off right up until i am certain it just isn’t a fault with the radio.

    This is a excellent internet radio. I have tried a lot of wi-fi radios and this is one of the best. It is easy to setup, good sound for a small radio, manyinternet station available on it and best of all it picks up very weak wi-fi signals easily. It has an external ariel which is probably the reason. The only down side is the very small remote control, you have to press some buttons twice to save stations and it does not always work.
