Summary: This DAB radio looks good, is finished to a high standard, and thanks to the 2 front facing stereo speakers, has a full rich sound on both speech and music, with no distortion, even when turned up to a high level. The blue backlit top mounted display is large and the text is easy to read. Both the volume and the tuning is also easy thanks to the large rotary control knobs.
Summary: Having read other reviews & trying out some in stores, chose this one. It was the right result. Set up was effortless, sound is superb from such a small unit. Plenty of stations to choose from (& we are not in the best area) Used in the kitchen on a daily basis, would recomend this to one & all.
Summary: this is easily the best sounding portable radio in this price range. i generally listen to 5live, radio 4, radio 2 all on dab and my local commercial station on fm. all sound great. i tried out pretty much all the alternatives in the shops before buying this for my study including the sony and pure, especially as we already have 2 pure radios in the house, but this one beats them hands down for richness of sound.
Summary: If anyone had any doubts about this radio, forget them, you won't be disappointed! I own a Pure Elan that I bought some years back to use in the bathroom. At the time there weren't many battery-powered DAB radios available. The Elan has always worked well but I was disappointed in the dull flat sound it produces, no bass or depth to the sound.
Summary: In our house we have gathered more DAB radios than I realised - six, mostly different brands, some with respected names. This Roberts is easily the best. I read the reviews, and placed an order. I returned the first one because of an intermittent problem with the on-button (my first 'return' with Amazon and handled with impressive efficiency). The replacement works very well. Design - excellent. Colour - the black version looks very impressive.
Summary: I bought one of these radios for my wife a year ago (sorry Amazon, not from you on this rare occasion) as she wanted to listen to Planet Rock (probably the best radio station in the world) in the kitchen. This is quite a good looking product, very well made and with a pleasing blue glow to the easy to read display. Setting up the radio was simplicity itself and we have had no problems at all with getting great reception, even with the aerial only slightly extended.
Summary: We've had this a month now. The quality of the build, sound and reception is as good (if not better) than my first Roberts radio. And that is still looking good and going strong after 35 years.
