Tangent DAB 2GO – Sound QualityThe Tangent DAB 2GO is a single-speaker mono radio, just like most petite worktop radios. It uses a 3-inch full-range driver unit, with a bass port on the rear to help out with airflow.
Tonally, the Tangent radio is warm and bassy, providing a fairly forgiving signature for the generally low-quality DAB signal. The DAB 2GO is much bassier than most of the competition, presumably helped by the bass port as well as bass-boosting sound tuning.
Top volume and the boldness of the Tangent DAB 2GO's sound are impressive for a small device like this, making it a good choice if the radio's going to have to compete with, for example, the clatter of a kitchen.
However, in a quieter environment, the limited treble insight and the occasional boomy low-end become quite apparent. The sound also distorts at top volume at times too, depending on how bassy the music you're listening to is. It's no great surprise, though, when the Tangent DAB 2GO offers a louder, more thunderous sound than many a DAB box.
