Performance and use

The LOGIK L55DAB15 has a nice compact design with a wood-effect finish. This radio is quite small (24.6 cm wide) and is easy to carry around, and you can power it with 4 AA batteries or the mains lead provided. As with most portable digital radios, the battery life is quite poor, so you will probably want to keep it plugged into the mains most of the time.

Unfortunately, this radio is quite difficult to use compared to most other portable DAB radios. In particular, setting alarms and saving presets can be difficult, even after reading the user manual. It can be quite frustrating trying to use this radio’s features as the controls aren’t very intuitive.

The sound quality is acceptable for a radio in this price range, but it doesn’t have much bass and hence sounds a bit tinny. It’s not a bad radio for listening to speech stations, but the tone quality isn’t great for listening to music. The volume is also quite limited, so it’s not a good choice for using in noisy places.

This radio has an orange display rather than using blue like on most digital radios. One advantage of this is that the display isn’t so bright at night, but this can also make the display harder to read.


  • Decent sound quality for the price
  • Attractive retro design with a nice wood finish
  • Display is clear and easy to read


  • Doesn’t go very loud
  • Lacks bass, so it sounds quite tinny
  • Manual is unclear and hard to follow
  • Setting alarms and saving presets is fiddly
  • Orange display can be hard to read at night


The LOGIK L55DAB15 has a nice design and would look good in the kitchen, but it does have some issues. The sound quality is decent for the price, but it lacks bass and sounds rather tinny. The radio can also be tricky to use as the manual is confusing.

To summarise, the LOGIK L55DAB15 could be a good choice if you like its design, but you should be aware of its flaws before purchasing it.

Similar radios

If you don’t mind getting something with a more modern design you should consider the AZATOM Horizon, which is an affordable FM/DAB clock radio with Bluetooth.

One good and inexpensive retro DAB clock radio is the KitSound Jive, which has an attractive 1950s-style design.

    Not at all happy with this radio. Manual pretty useless and and sound quality poor. I would not even offload it on a local charity so it is heading for the local tip.

  2. i have searched for ages for radios with a dedicated sleep button not a sleep function so have lots ofother poor sleepers like me. at 3 or 4 am you need a simple way for the radio to turn itself off after 30 or 40 minutes. full marks to Logic

  3. Got this today and some what disapointed , terrible volume out put when switched of volume goes back to an inaudible preset, hard to tune, and manual prety useless . it will have to live in the garage.!!

  4. I was given this radio (at my request) as a Christmas present by my son and wife. I’m just hoping he never comes round and asks me to demonstrate it.
    For most of my life I have worked with electronics and for 20 years I have been writing technical operations manuals for various industries. No way would I put my name to this manual, which seems to have been written by an 8 year old child. It is absolute rubbish, particularly in the section which refers to setting up preset stations.
    My advice would be go and look at alternative radios, otherwise allow several hours any time you want to tune it to a station and set it.

  5. The LOGIK 55DAB15 should be selected for the rubbish bin. Both
    my wife and I have attempted numerous times to preset stations and have given up. The technical construction and the unreadable manual make this the worst purchase I have ever made. Be warned!!
