    Wanted to go down the DAB route. I opted for a Kenwood dpx 406 dab with built in bluetooth/handsfree.
    I had intended on doing a speaker upgrade but the sound quality through the standard spreakers is greatly improved so decided to leave as is.

    Sorry for the off topic, but at the garage I work at, a foreigner guy with a rental van showed up selling "german tool carts", and kitchen aluminium supplies ( LOL ) and I automatically tought this was suspiccious.
    My boss was really attracted to the business offer, because the seller had a flyer that showed the german tool carts were originally around 1000 euro, and he was selling for only 500.
    Huuum, I was a bit salty, so simply googled the "german" brand, Kraftwelle... Immediatelly laded at the Alibaba order page, with the price "149 euro/ item" .
    Didn't say a word, boss is an idiot anyways :lol:

    What I could have done was try to negociate with the seller... okay, blackmail the seller. Like "hey, my boss is a bit skeptical about Chinese quality, if I show him my little cellphone with these little website you won't get your 500€, sooo, money my way, maybe?" , but all of this happened after lunch, so my imagination wasn't that sharp OR dark :lol:
