To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
great little radio. lots of teature, plenty of stations. sound and clear. DAB + and FM radio frequency and station type. good looking clock in stand by mode. 5 preset quick access buttons. 30 preset stations in total. auto tune in all radio stations, in your area.
Bought this on a deal which I thought was good value for a Roberts radio. However the sound quality is terrible, not only bassless but just very flat and dull. Also it feels very cheap and plasticky for a Roberts. So I returned for full refund. I ended up buying a Sangean Mini DAB+ (from the manufacturer) which was a bit pricier, but it's a mini marvel - smaller than this Roberts but excellent sound quality for the size.
Nice little unit let down by tinny sound as other reviewers have mentioned. This radio is a great size and feels well made but why oh why didn't Roberts add and equaliser as it's crying out for one to add some depth to the sound . Sent back and I shall revert back to my Pure H3 which is several classes above but just a little more money
Lovely radio, elegant display, has a rechargeable battery facility built in. Sound quality is good although not powerful enough to blow your socks off. But then I only wanted it for the bathroom or listening to the cricket, or other talk stations. The build quality like all Roberts is superb.
I have bought a 2nd one of these because it is so good. The sound quality is superb despite being small. It can run on mains power (adaptor supplied) or alkalaines (not provided) or rechargeable batteries (not provided) which are charged on board by the same mains adaptor provided. It runs for at least 20 hours on 4 high capacity AA rechargeables playing music on a usb stick. The display is easy to read and understand and the manual is actually understandable. The build quality is excellent too and the strap very useful. Highly recommended.
I liked this. Looks great but ultimately I’ve had to return it. The Bluetooth connection started to affect other functionality (volume control, changing functions, even turning it off!) so returning it and I’m now starting to look at alternatives. One thing to note is that on Bluetooth, the sound would often be muted on connection and so you had to turn the sound up manually to hear anything. Also a lag between phone volume adjustment and that of the radio. Wouldn’t recommend.
Very small - even smaller than I thought it would be. Signal accessible in only one room even though my previous dab radio picked up in all rooms. not easy to set up. pretty disappointed. Roberts, as a fan over many years, I fear your products are declining in value for money and performance. too much gloss not enough substance in my view. considering returning
