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.
It looks lovely and its sound quality is fine unless you are really picky, but suddenly there's no sound despite everything looking to be working. Contacted the manufacturer and they were very pleasant and responsive. While I was packing the radio to send away for repair, I decided it’d be prudent to try and see if it works one more time, and lo and behold, it was working again and it’s been working ever since. I sleep better now knowing that there is a responsible manufacturer behind the product even if something goes awry. It’s a good product and it’s a good company.
I purchased this as a replacement for an 8 year old Roberts "Revival" Radio that stopped working. In faiirness, it was in the kitchen and suffered some minor abuse oover the years. This Roberts "Rambler" replacement has a smaller footprint and makes a decent subsitute for the prior unit. But the sound quality is mediocre and the controls are not particularly user friendly. This might have something to do with cramming tuning, presets and other controls into a relatively small area. However, reception in the DAB mode is quite good and the case has an attractive look. All in all, a reasonable unit that serves the purpose. But with some speaker fidelity improvements, it could have been very good.
I bought this as a radio for my bedroom. Its simple enough to set up, the sound is nice, it has quite basic features compared to some digital radios, but my needs were quite basic (I listen to Radio 3, 4 & 6) so its all good for me. I believe it can operate as a clock radio but I have't got that far with it. I'm happy with my purchase
Very nice looking radio. Very sensitive in both FM and DAB. However: - Batteries lifetime is very short, for what it is I would not expect it to deplete the fresh set of batteries in just few days; - Sound is very thin, absolutely no low end (there are portable speakers out there which are smaller and of a much better sound quality).
Nice radio, good sound, easy to set up (once plug issue sorted, thank you amazon). I love the styling on this one more than the classic and it's cheaper too. Haven't used with batteries only use it plugged in.
Bought this to replace a Pure Evoke which went poof after a couple of years. Compared to the Pure its obviously a totally different aesthetic, and very nice too, but the sound is a bit feeble by comparison. I bought mine for the kitchen to listen to the radio while cooking, and with the noise of an extractor fan etc, its really only just up to the job.
Good for the price, not the best bass but clear sound. Smaller than you’d expect but a nice weight to it and quality build. Good for a kitchen or small room. Nice design and good signal even with aerial half length.
