ATMT DAB MP3 Player MP170 review
A DAB radio and MP3/WMA player in the same device is a great idea. Powered by an AA battery, the ATMT MP170 plays over two days of continuous music. It’s a compact 80 x 38 x 31mm and weighs 64g. Buffering live radio to an unused portion of the 1GB memory gives time-shifting capabilities. Sound quality from the bundled earphones – which double as the antenna – is average; clear in the mid-range, but there’s little detail at the extremities. Outdoor reception was fine in London, although fiddling with the earphones can interfere with the signal. For pre-recorded music, the £85 2GB iPod nano is a better bet. But, if you specifically want DAB, the MP170 is competitively priced.
