Q & As

John Lewis Spectrum DAB/FM Digital Radio 3.9 5 149 149
So much potential! After dropping some hints(!) my husband bought me this radio as a gift. I was so delighted with mine I bought one as a gift for my mum. Love the colours and sound but unfortunately neither radio now works with charger - there is no digital display at all. Only works with batteries (which it goes through at an alarming rate!). Very disappointed :( 10 December 2014
Spectrum digital radio This is a good small radio for the kitchen. The main controls for the volume and stations are simple. The set up controls are not so easy to navigate, but once set up it works well. 19 November 2014
Good, but one problem! Bought this radio around a year ago and have found it to be very good. For the size the sound is good and provided you use it off the mains (as it really does eat batteries), it's fine. One issue that has just presented itself - the radio has started turning itself back on a few moments after it's been switched off! The manual doesn't help and I've been unable to find anything online about this - so if anyone else has had this problem and has a solution please write it up here. John Lewis, any ideas?! Many thanks. 16 November 2014
Eats Batteries - Wish I Hadn't Bought It We use this radio for between 1 - 1.5 hours per day, over 2 'sessions' - one at breakfast and again early evening - the 4 AA batteries last a maximum of 14 days even with Duracell or Energizer top price batteries. For the use that we get this is nothing short of pathetic. The FM analogue radio that it replaced, for the same amount of use, ran for over a year on a pair of D cell batteries. The running cost for this radio are ridiculous - as it takes 4 AA batteries the cost of replacing them will exceed the cost of the radio in 6 months! At time of purchase I asked the John Lewis salesman about DAB radio reception as I'd heard it to do poor in some areas - he assured me that, because of government support (or pressure) the cover had improved and there should be no problems. The weather was still good when we bought the radio and it performed OK but then as the weather started to cool so did the radio's performance - frequently dropping the signal and complete silence. Why did I expect a John Lewis salesman to be any more 'reliable' than any other when giving information to help make a sale. Overall, far from impressed and extremely disappointed. I simply want a radio that I can turn on and listen to, so, time to go out and buy a couple of D batteries and big out the old but reliable FM radio. 09 November 2014
breaks down easily I got one for the 2013 New Year as was stylish, simple to use and reasonably priced. It broke down 3-4 months later and I got a replacement. The replacement broke a few months later. Got the third one and it lasted for a year but would sometimes switch itself off. A month ago the third radio broke down and I cant find the receipt to return it. I am afraid it is a rubbish radio. 27 October 2014
Looks good but breaks easily I have not experienced any problems with this radio apart from the charging point. I really like the look of it, it is a really nice size and I love the colours. However, my first radio stopped charging a couple of weeks after I bought it. It would work on batteries but not when plugged into the wall. I think the bit where it had charged had come loose. I took it back and got the same one again, but then the same thing happened yesterday again. So I will be taking it back today and getting a different product, likely to pay a bit more and upgrade to a pure radio. 19 October 2014
Terrible I didn't expect HiFi but the sound quality was terrible. There was a pre-echo with music on every station and speech was so unclear, I really had to concentrate to understand. It was completely unusable & I took it back. Perhaps I got a bad one 15 October 2014
Great little unit! But . . . Bought this set for my son last year, and he really likes it! But since we live in Norway and Norway now switches to the DAB PLUS system, this radio has become almost useless. Lots of new stations will never be reached. JohnLewis should absolutely inform about this for all their DAB radio sets - wether ordinary DAB or DAB PLUS! 15 October 2014
