I looked at that one and went for this http://www.oxgadgets.com/2015/02/review-ted-baker-finisterre-dabfmbluetooth-enable-radio.html (use it in the kitchen), I had a Roberts before it but it failed for no particular reason and it wasn't that old thus partly why I switched.

It sounds fantastic and I have some pretty expensive hifi. A really good well rounded sound and a bass unit on the back that gives it real depth. It doesn't have DLNA though but does have bluetooth, so could serve music from a phone or tablet from a NAS and easier to control. Only downside I've found is no station presets.

Its £200 on Ted Baker site but noticed below its only £99 on Amazon.

But £99 on Amazon https://www.amazon.co.uk/Ted-Baker-London-Finisterre-Bluetooth/dp/B00NGPFBYG reviews seem pretty good. 

I'm sure he will be happy with either. +++

The "blurb" from the site says that that model has 10 station pre-sets?

Yeah I saw that I'm sure it does I mean buttons to go straight to the station. It was on this morning it really is very very nice to listen to.

I went to Richer Sounds today and asked about alternatives. For quality of sound they only came up with something 50% more expensive but without DLNA or some of the key bits I wanted.

I've ordered the Roberts so that should be here in a day or two. Fingers crossed it's as good as the reviews suggest.
