Great machine - pity about the repair service

Colin Fenn, Amazon
19 April 2013
  • Summary: I bought the Roberts Sound 53 3 years and 3 months ago. I was not disappointed: it worked perfectly, the sound was excellent and it looked good. I played, on average, one or two CDs each day.

What a shame

Derek, Amazon
26 April 2012
  • 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.

Amazing!

JoJo, Amazon
16 April 2012
  • 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.

Spoiled by my old Creative 740 Soundworks

sensibleblue, Amazon
25 February 2012
  • 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

T. Rokita, Amazon
31 January 2012
  • 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.

Superb performer

Richard, Amazon
22 January 2012
  • 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.

Classy little unit

15 January 2012
  • Summary: I bought this just before Christmas to treat myself - the price drop was what stopped me dithering any longer. Straight out of the box, it sounded awful and I was hugely disappointed.

superb

R. Moore, Amazon
6 December 2011
  • 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.

Poor

N. Lochrin, Amazon
12 October 2011
  • 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).
