Well I do not know anything about these radios I hear so much about, only to say if they are battery operated and the batteries are in them when they are not being used this could be part of the problem. ----- Original Message ----- From: "Jackie Brown" <thebrownsplace@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx>

I have to report that ours is dead except for power! Martin's sister
confirmed for us last night that the display shows literally nothing
whatever you do. A pity as the radio has not been used that much and is in
excellent condition otherwise.

I bought my Sonus in April 2005 when it was released and it has served me
well since, I don't use it as much these days as I have another built into
my system but it is still the only one I have and no of with speech, unless
you count a smart phone!

I'm still using a couple of radios that date back to the 1970s, one

stop the switches making noises, but apart from that they owe me nothing.
But then, I'm not at all excited about DAB radio, and will only use it if
I'm foreced to, or I suddenly decide I can't live without the extra
stations. As these radios have short, medium and long waves as well as FM<
I'm not short of stations to listen to! They don't announce the name of the
station, but I usually know it by its position on the band I'm tuned to.

Fare enough.  Maybe my expectations are higher than that of
the manufacturer or average user.

Hi Culvinder.



I respectfully disagree, the £99 price tag was a reasonable
price to pay for a DAB radio at the time, in any case 8 years is good for
most electrical appliances of this type anyway, in fact I'd say that most
radios today wouldn't last last 6 years or more without developing some
malfunction at some point in their service lives.  I don't think I've ever
had one that's lasted me above 3 or 4 years, not that I can recall anyway.



All the best, Ibrahim.

The average seems to be 8 years and then you have to think
about ditching the radio.



That's not very good considering the premium you pay for
these radios.

Hi

The Sonos 1 that went wrong in our house was bought from
Tapesense in
September 2006.

The Tempus 1 that went wrong was bought from Currys in July
2004.

The Sonos 1 that my husband is listening to at the moment
was bought
from Simply Radios in March 2005.

Make of that what you will.
