I just bought a very cheap DAB+ radio,  from Target.   Only $10.      I picked it up to look at it because I thought it looked nice, then I noticed how cheap it was.  It feels good as well, - quite light, and covered in a rubberised surface that prevents it feeling cheap.   It really feels much better quality than a $10 item should.   It has DAB+ and FM modes, as well as a 2 setting alarm clock (great because it sets its time automatically from the radio).  It runs on 4 AA batteries or from mains via a supplied DC adapter.

 

Soundwise, the 2 small internal speakers sound nice, but maybe not full range.   It doesn't turn up very loud either - but sufficient.   Through headphones I was surprised and pleased.  The ABC Jazz station at 80kb was most enjoyable.

TEN BUCKS! 

 

And, you get a mains adapter?

 

Did someone make a huge mistake?

 

I'm off to Target.

Yeah, I figure the mains adapter (5V 1A) was worth it alone.   It isn't even on special - at least the price tag seemed to be the normal white one.   Christmas gifts???

I just checked on-line. The cheapest one I can find (on the Target site) is $39.00.

Hmmm   doesn't seem to be on their website. Maybe it IS a runout of old stock.  Hope you don't drive down to Target for nothing.

The store I was in had at least one more on the shelf, maybe 2 with the display stock.

If there’s plenty on the shelf just buy the entire shelf and use it as Xmas gifts.

and if they remain just sell it here on the classified for $40....😜
