Summary: Having set up the device it worked perfectly, the sound is great and the DAB radio is very good. However within an hour the remote failed to respond and nothing could coax it into life - fiddling with the batteries failed, changing the batteries failed.
Summary: I wanted a CD/Docking station that could be portable to use in the kitchen and lounge and so that I didn't have to have it on display all the time...due to lack of space. This system looks great and very stylish, quite retro yet modern.
Summary: My old BOSE clone the Creative 740 Soundworks got the dreaded stuck cd syndrome whereby the slot cd loader (like the Roberts MP53) keeps the cd and it cannot be ejected. Apparently this is a problem with slot loading CD players which over the years can occur.
Not professional enough-style above function-CD rubbish

Summary: On the plus side this unit looks good and feels sturdy-It works fine for radio and i-pod and sound quality is pretty good BUT..One major negative is the CD player-which is mainly why I bought it. You slide a CD into the letterbox style opening and press a button on the unit to release it.
Summary: I've had this unit for around a year. It needs to be reviewed for what it is - a premium small unit, not to be confused with a main expensive hifi system. I have had no issues with the remote, able to use it at a 45 deg angle quite easily.
Summary: All right, so it isn't all bells and whistles to look at, but I didn't want that, what I wanted was TONE, and sound quality and I got that in spades, it is a pleasure to listen to, it is simple to use, and after fitting a proper aerial, ( we need this as we are in a very poor reception area.
Summary: bought this having returned to the shop a Panasonic dab which was hopeless. The roberts set is in a different league. sound quality is superb and with the ability to not only play but also copy vinyl and cd's to sd card very versatile. super quality build.
Summary: With the exception of remote control this is a very stylish and easy to use piece of equipment - plug in and will self tune radio stations then ready to go. Sound is excellent (purchased for use in a kitchen but would happily use in lounge as main unit).
