First time I couldn't find something to criticise
I recently bought Aldi’s Tradesman’s radio – Maginon SRR-200 (“Robust Radio”) to replace a previous Aldi AM/FM version. The previous model was large, heavy, analogue AM/FM only, hard to tune, had trouble holding onto an FM station and fell apart after a couple of years of little use. So I was a bit reluctant with buying the SRR-200, particularly as it is around half the size of the previous tradesman’s radio.
I am delighted to say I was wrong.
The sound is excellent. The functionality is excellent (although it’s hard to get that wrong on ...a DAB radio). Its sensitivity and ability to handle poor signals is excellent. I like its aesthetics. Its design as a device that is intended to be portable and given rough treatment is excellent - I can’t comment about its actual ability to handle rough treatment as I haven’t dropped it or dropped anything onto it (yet). Rather than leave it in the garage until I want to carry it around outside, I’ve replaced the radio in the bathroom as hopefully the robustness extends to handling the steam. If you read my other reviews I have always found something to criticise. This is the first product where I haven’t been able to come up with a criticism - once I got my head around the slightly different way in which the control set worked.
