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.
Loving this cuboid little cutey. I chose this one because it was one of the only radio alarm clocks with single press buttons for presets - honestly why would anyone want to deal with multiple button presses and scrolling to get to your favourite stations when you're in the dark and/or half-asleep? This one has 5 dedicated preset buttons (more than enough for my favourite stations). The alarms, once set, can be turned on and off with a single button press (again most others including my old pure siesta) force you to go through the rigmarole of scrolling through options. The volume control is very fine-grained with the lowest setting really very quiet indeed, which is great as first thing in the morning my ears prefer waking to gentle sound. Bluetooth is an added bonus for when I want to listen to radio downloads from my phone. It's lovely and compact so doesn't take up much room on your bedside table. Finally it looks kind of retro funky in its boxy simplicity. Love it!
This ticks all the boxes, its portable, you can use re-chargeble or normal battery's, I connected my mac book, and iPhone to the unit with ease., DAB works, FM works. Also unit can be powered via USB cable, which I find useful to charge from car or camper van etc. The preset station selection and general functionality of controls is good, someone has thought about it, so quite intuitive. I notice some reviews complained of sound quality, but for me the sound quality was good.
If you require a good sounding DAB+ radio with alarm that doesn't take up much space on the bedside table this is a good choice. It can display an analogue clock face or a digital display which can be dimmed to a low level for sleep. You'll probably need to do this as the display would be too bright otherwise. It could do with a little more bass but I was surprised at how compact it is. My wife really likes it compared to the old one!
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.
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.
