Goodman’s Oxford II Radio with DAB/FM is a great little radio that is perfect for use around the home, as it comes with a battery operated option. Its versatility is belied by its lovely retro styling, which is reminiscent of a 60s radio set. 

We’ve reviewed a few digital radios over recent years including ones at premium price points and this little radio manages to tune into a greater selection of stations than even those at the very top end. 

For an affordable £69.99, the Oxford II radio packs in a lot of first class features including auxiliary output combined with Bluetooth streaming. Its looks are super retro stylish too combined with technology that puts it firmly into the 21st century. 

The sound produced perhaps lacks the full spectrum of bass notes, but it’s more than capable of producing a sound that will suit most people’s tastes. It also provides a clear sound when playing most styles of music from rock to classic. 

Another bonus is that it’s simple to use and comes with six presets that are easily programmable. 

Most retro radios command a premium price tag, but the Goodman’s Oxford comes in at a very reasonable price point with perhaps a nod to affordability in its plastic casing. It comes in an array of stylish and creative colours including ‘bonbon’ pink, berry, mustard, porcelain and moss. Its battery pack takes six c-type batteries, which is perhaps a little more than the competition, but that’s acceptable given its vast array of other features and its affordability.
