Performance and use

The Majority Huntingdon DAB radio is very easy to set up. All you need to do is plug it in and it will scan and store all the radio stations available.

The Huntingdon’s sound quality isn’t amazing, but it’s good for a radio at this price point. The sound is clear, and you can adjust the bass and treble levels. The CD player works well and can play MP3 CDs in addition to regular CDs. However, it can be quite noisy when loading CDs.

This radio is generally easy to use and has plenty of features. You can use the USB port to charge your phone while streaming audio from it via Bluetooth at the same time. The remote control is a useful addition, but it is very small and therefore quite fiddly to use.

You can use the Huntingdon as an alarm clock, and can set separate alarms for weekdays and weekends. However, the radio is quite large, so it’s not ideal as a bedside radio.

Design-wise the Majority Huntingdon looks smart and modern, and is reminiscent of the Bose Wave. If you’d prefer a more retro design you might want to look at the Majority Oakington instead.

Pros

  • Very affordable
  • Good range of features
  • Clear sound with decent amount of bass
  • Easy to use

Cons

  • CD draw is noisy
  • Remote control is small and fiddly

Verdict

The Majority Huntingdon is a perfect if you want an affordable radio with good sound quality that offers a lot of different ways to listen to music. It’s a very versatile piece of kit that combines a radio, CD player, Bluetooth speaker and alarm clock in one.

Similar radios

One of the most similar radios to the Huntingdon is the Majority Oakington. It has essentially the same features as the Huntingdon but with a retro walnut finish, making it a good alternative if you’re not so keen on the Huntingdon’s design.

A cheaper alternative is the AZATOM Multiplex D1, which offers similar features to the Majority Huntingdon but doesn’t have a CD player.

If you’d like a DAB radio CD player you can carry around the house, you should check out the Sony ZS-RS70BTB Boombox, which lets you listen to DAB radio, CDs and MP3 files via USB.
