As ever, my life on the edge of the bell curve seems to mean that
designers have priorities different from mine.
Amongst the desirable attributes I wish to retain are:

Setting not requiring navigation through lengthy menus.
I guess for future-proofing DAB should be included.
Reading reviews, many seem to fail on several of my requirements.
