    Bluetooth would be good as well

    The ability to connect a bluetooth keyboard for navigating the menus would also be useful

    Full manual

    The user manual is available for download from the sony support site here;

    Looks like a nice unit. It does support network, timer record from DAB, and functions as a DLNA client for playback from DLNA compliant servers.
