Summary: Pondered over this product for months. I have it in my living room. I think it looks great. Unlike some other comments i actually like the fact that most of the controls are via the remote, due to having small children there is less for them to try and touch.
Excerpt: 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.
Pros: Great sound quality, looks and range of features
Summary: It certainly looks the part. Good build quality, and a very full sound. Of course it will never sound as good as my old quality mini hi-fi system with separate speakers. For example, it lacks the depth and warmth that my old system provided.
Summary: - prompt delivery by Amazon - was close call between this and Pure Avanti but I didn't notice any significant difference in sound when I tested them, plus preferred the look of the MP53 as well as cd function - Sound quality is important to me and this does what I expected - yes you can spend more...
Summary: Overall, I am very pleased with this item. The sound is terrific for such a small box. Great bass and stereo imaging. In my opinion this is on a par with equivalent Bose equipment but less than half the price. DAB reception is excellent.
Summary: I ordered the Roberts Sound53 a few months ago after spending a lot of time beforehand reviewing many products. I selected this model as it has everything I was looking for - DAB radio, CD player and iPod docking - and came within my budget.
Summary: Great solution for audio if you dont wish wire and cables all over the place, functions all work sound is good looks and feels great. there is only one down side if you cant find your remote or the pixxies have taken it your stuffed.
Summary: I bought this after hearing a friend's, and it sounds just as good as I had hoped. Wonderful room filling sound. Two other people are planning to buy one having heard mine! I bought this model rather than the M43 because I liked the minimalist design, with a single on/off/volume control - but I have...
Summary: Having studied other reviews on Amazon for the Roberts MP53, the positive ones match my experience of the product more closely than the negative ones. The system is easy to set up and works straight out of the box. No need to tune in DAB stations etc. the system does it all for you.
