    In-Store Clearance Only

    Which stores?

  • Coffs Harbour :)

    • Guess im racing u then lol

      • Nah.. IF it's still available go for it :)

  • http://www.productreview.com.au/p/insystem-dab.html - at least they've fixed the headphone out socket issue! Could be an cheap way to add DAB+ to your home theater/sound system

      fixed the headphone out socket issue

      The OW website is and was always wrong stating there was one. I have one of these, there is no headphone out socket. Great unit and perfect for my needs though as I don't use headphones

      • Yep, my office works at Auburn had one in stock the other day - I opened the box to check if it has a headphone out socket and unfortunately, it didn't have one.

        • Noooooooo!I might cancel that pick-up then. Not worth it if I can't amplify through my existing arrangement. :(

          Thanks for the heads up!

        "there is no headphone out socket" < maybe that was the issue :p

      If you don't mind a pocket DAB radio, I'm quite sure I saw one at Kmart for $19ish.

      • +1

        Is this the Audiosonic one?
        Some1 picked up from Kmart for $9

        • +1

          That's exactly it! And I did see it for $9 in that same Kmart in Chermside as well. I just thought it was too cheap so I said $19 thinking that I remembered it wrongly. :)

        • Anymore info on this, might check out my local K-mart.

  • Are you sure this is instore only? It is listed on their website also for $15 with free delivery for me - 2128

    • +2

      Try checking out, it'll add the shipping fee, and then it'll tell you it's out of stock.

    From the reviews. Unfortunately no batteries or headphone socket so your stuck with inbuilt speaker.

      You'd cross Bass Strait for this?

      • +2

        Of course I would. I 'need' one for work, so the trip would be work related travel expenses.

        Haha…. I called Ascot Vale and they checked the stock in Ballarat (which showed SIX)… then called Ballarat and they only had 1 on the shelf. I didn't buy that last one.

  • +5

    None near Brisbane / Gold Coast

    • Thanks.

  • none in mona vale, despite limited stock showing

      limited stock = no stock

    Just went into the Hobart store.
    There was 4 left on the shelf.
    Now there are 2.
    Thanks OP.

      Are they related ?

    DJ's seem to have an alternative at $30 AUD (+ shipping - not available at the stores I checked) which has headphone and line out:
    http://shop.davidjones.com.au/djs/en/davidjones/ecologic-4-d...

    Looks to be a brand mostly sold in the UK for 60-70 GBP.

    Seems to have decent reviews on amazon.co.uk (although the picture is slightly different) - http://www.amazon.co.uk/product-reviews/B000X5HGOK

    • This is double the price.

      • +1

        Thanks Capt. Obvious

      • And more useful for those that don't want a tiny, tinny sound. I'd pay $15 for those connections. You also get stereo with your FM radio with the DJ's product.

    • +2

      This is an excellent bargain. It sells at $229 at TGG: http://www.thegoodguys.com.au/roberts-digital-radio-amfm-eco...

      Pity DJs have completely sold out of them. Don't bother trying.

      • Confirmed, tried to do online order and received an error, presumably out of stock.

    • +1

      Good luck buying that unit..
      I've tried on multiple occasions over a few months and it always fails at checkout.
      I think it's probably a phantom stock unit.

      Review from a lovely ol' chap. Note that the line out socket is just another 3.5mm analogue plug, so you'll still be relying on the DAC in the radio, so hopefully it's good.

      sold out all places in vic

    none in sydney it would appear

  • +1

    I've ordered local C&C (WA) in the hope that it is not cancelled, and I can find a stereo signal inside.
    Otherwise, bathroom or gift.

    Looks like no more C&C available here. I wish my local shop luck in finding one for me!

  • does it pick-up AM too?

    • +1

      ur no. It doesn't need to.

      • It does if you live in a regional area…

        • Listeners can tune into digital radio in the five capital cities of Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth now. Trial broadcast services are currently available in Canberra and Darwin. Repeaters have now been switched on in Redfern and Centerpoint in Sydney, Mt Mee in Brisbane and Central Park in Perth.

          If not, don't buy it.

        • @zzymurgy:

          don't buy it.

          We are talking 'Ozbargainers' here…

  • Forgive my ignorance but how does this pickup digital signals?

    Does it need a wifi connection?

    • Needs a receiver (which is what a radio is) and an antenna, similar to digital TV.

    • +1

      It's a radio..
      The antenna is built into the device.

      • Sorry maybe my question was wrong.

        Does it mean it will only pickup signals within Australian stations right?

        It's not the same as internet radio like Tunein Radio where you can get hundreds of stations?

    • +1

      I am not tec, but the radio bands now are fm am digitial lw. Mostly larger centres all of Sydney here is english version

    Got one from Coffs harbour (not sure i need it) and there are 2 left

  • +2

    So happy at least some were able to get one; they're awfully overpriced generally.
    I'm intrigued that Click & Collect and Online options vary for people.

    • Maybe it's actually a mobile-site thing.

  • +1

    Grabbed the one and only in Bendigo. Not having any luck getting digital stations though !

    Just looked on that digital radio site posted above - not being rolled out to regional areas. Why sell the bloody things then !?!

    • +1

      Oh shit!

      • I was wondering the same thing…

  • Looks like they're all sold out in S.A according to Marion O.W :(
