Blaupunkt BPR 3 and three other DAB radios comparison.

Strange hand interactions when using the Blaupunkt BPR-3 on FM (DAB not affected).

The two Blaupunkts represent excellent value on DAB and FM, especially at the low prices I paid.

Hello Peter, I watch the video and would like your opinion on top DAB performer Blaupunkt BPR3 or BPAIOW-B1 maybe it was just myself but i notice better audio quality with the BPAIOW-B1 to the BPR3 is this correct? Also for the BPR3 mains static problem i note there is a RF filter fitted on mains wire but not solve the hand static there fore can the problem be the stock mains adapter design and if yes will replacing with a better quality type cure the problem?

Bonjour Pascal. Yes the BPAIOW-B1 is better than the BPR-3 on DAB and FM. It is a mains only mini HiFi system so has very good audio but not so portable as the BPR-3. The mains adapter for the BPR-3 is of poor quality. I'll try this radio with another one.

I did another search to purchase a BPR-3 and it indeed seems it's only available from UK, from very few stores.
Nothing available in Germany, though Blaupunkt is (to my knowledge) a german brand.
Too bad ... it sounds really sensitive.

Yes it is a pity only Sainsbury's sell this brand and they have no French stores.

Patrick, I have try for finding DAB radios in my local Carrefour and Auchan supermarkets but such radios are not available. I purchased a Sony XDR S40DBP FM/ DAB receiver 3 years ago from darty but i do not recommend because both receive modes fm/dab are poor and the batteries run down very fast.

Hi Pascal ! I was indeed recently told that the Sony S40 was not fine (though probably better than my Sony P1DBP).
I first thought the Pure Elan E3 would be a good choice, but after Peter's clip showing both radios I'm doubtful. Unfortunately, the BPR-3 is not available. According to a serbian DX'er who own both an Elan E3 and a Sangean DPR-69, the sensitivity of the latter is "only" on par with the Pure but costs abt €75. Not a great deal. Thus, I finally don't know what to go for ...

This will confuse Patrick further.
The total cost of all three radios in the video is less than a DPR69.

I agree with Pascal. I have the Sony S40 and it's mediocre. It doesn't even have RDS on FM.

I was wrong about the S40BDP. Please see this video
