TEAC's back with a whole load of DAB

TEAC's all-in-one DAB, FM and CD receiver - the TEAC CR-H248 - is ideal as a main audio system, to which you can add a choice of speakers. Its compact dimensions means it can happily sit on a deep shelf, with all functions accessible by remote control.

TEAC's new CR-H248 at first sounds a little harsh and bright through headphones, but tweak the treble settings and adust the bass and the system gives an easier, involving listen with plenty of punch and drive. With 2 x 25 Watts RMS on tap, this is enough to fill a midsize room with sound. There's DAB and FM with RDS station naming and RadioText on tap, of course, with ample presets. Choosing a high bitrate station such as BBC Radio 3, the absense of hiss together with the Teac tuner's delivery gave a stirring performance. The Teac is a neat, well-laid out system though station selection using the rotary dial a little vague, requiring quite a turn to reach the next station and causing overruns - other systems have "clicky" selectors that work better. The enter button doubles-up as the CD eject button. The CD spins CD-DA, CD-R/RW and MP3 discs.

The comprehensive remote, though a little dull, enables you to hide the TEAC CR-H248 away if you so wish. However, the uncluttered appearance and understated looks of the component with neat brushed aluminium fascia would not look out of place in any living room.

Though fitted with only spring-clip speaker terminals (binding posts are a better option), the TEAC has room for a sub out, twin RCA stereo phono inputs - one with a loop back - and a proper F-type aerial connector.

The CR-H248's vital dimensions are 215 x 110 x 359mm, weighing in at 4.2kg, and is available now, with a price tag of around GBP180.00.
