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. Then suddenly it went again and equally suddenly failed again and it remains thus!!

superb

  • 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). Remote control is functional but really the styling does not suit the unit - the remote is chunky and controls are slightly 'cluttered' as the only way to control the unit is the remote control guess I will have to get...

Excellent product with a show stopping problem

Lorne, Amazon
11 July 2011
  • Summary: I am very impressed with this product. Looks great and sounds great with many useful features to play your music wherever you have it stored. I am using it as a DAB alarm clock in the bedroom as well as a general sound system when I am working in my office (which is a corner of the bedroom) and it is excellent for both uses.

Roberts MP-53 Sound 53 Digital Sound System: Great multifunctional sound system in a sleek compact unit

Neenawneenaw, Dooyoo
22 May 2011
  • Summary: Ooh, we're loving our new micro hifi from Roberts MP53 Sound 53. We bought it to replace our old little system which had served us well for many years but was looking rather clunky and tatty and pre-dated any thought of docking stations or digital radio (it was old enough to have a tape deck, bless). So, our priorities were to have a system with digital radio and ipod docking capabilities, as well as a CD player as we continue to buy and use CD's regularly.
  • Pros: Compact, sleek, multifunctional - does your ipod dock, CD, radio and USB/SD input
  • Cons: Inevitably not a huge sound as lacking separate speakers (but still pretty good!)

The Remote should be renamed The Near

Hankwife, Amazon
1 May 2011
  • Summary: It's worth heeding the 1 and 2 star ratings about this product - the remote is truely worse than useless. As the whole system relies upon the remote, simply turning the power on can be a MAJOR annoyance. Such a shame as we love the sound quality and design. My remote has now ceased to work at all and I'm trying to get a replacement from Hughes Direct via Amazon.

Robert is a Genius!

  • Summary: The Roberts Sound 53, the 'Big Brother' of the Sound 43, is a stylish and modern stereo system complete with a dock for your iPod, meaning you can play all your favourite songs through the amazing speakers this product provides. You also get the opportunity to record things from the radio and CD's onto a USB or SD memory card, which is very handy when you hear something interesting and want to show it to somebody else.
  • Pros: Great sound quality, aesthetics and range of features
  • Cons: Expensive, unless you use it often

Disappointing

Cesare Borgia, Amazon
18 November 2010
  • Summary: I've no complaints about the sound quality, and so far my remote has behaved itself satisfactorily but my model has periodically lost all the presets so that when you switch it on you find it has tuned itself to some dreadful station called "Absolutely". So far I have been able to reset the presets without any trouble - about five minutes work, but clearly this should not be happening.
