Q & As

ROBERTS Blutune 50 2.1 Bluetooth DAB/DAB+/FM Digital Radio, Black 3.6 5 5 5
Good compact all rounder with great sound As you would expect from Roberts radios this is a great DAB radio and iPod player. The sound quality is really good for a small player and there is no distortion when you turn the sound up. We bought it to take on holiday camping and it's size is perfect for this. We now keep it in the kitchen and resigned our old Roberts to the back bedroom. Would recommend this if you want a compact all in one sound system without compromising on sound. Could have come with an AUX cable though. 08 July 2014
Great way to wake up A good DAB radio, great reception and easy to set up 29 April 2014
almost.... Bought this to replace my old Roberts dab clock radio that was also almost perfect. Previous radio display would auto-dim at night to a level that made it unreadable and the clock only ever set its self when you pulled the power cable so slowly drifted out over time and never accounted for the clocks going back. The Blutune50 has a manually-dimming display so can be set to the perfect brightness at night, ok its a bit dim during the day but I'm at work then so don't care and anyway, the display returns to full brightness when you turn the radio on. Unlike other Roberts dab radios, the alarm volume ramps up to a user specified level so if you don't make it home on a weekeday the volume isn't slowly getting louder and louder until it gets to neighbour annoying levels in your absence. However, I use the radio to listen to the news and traffic reports in the morning and spoken voice radio is unintelligible on this radio....there is just too much bass and voices boom. There is no tone control to fix this and so, pending any help from Roberts, I will be returning this radio after 1 day of use. Looking at all the clock radio reviews on the JL website, all of them seem to have some flaw. Surely it can't be that hard to distil all of the reviews and build the ultimate radio ? 20 January 2014
Great sound Having read the numerous reviews on various DAB clock radios I decided to head into the store and try a few of them out as just about every product has at least a few poor reviews which almost put me of buying anything from John This is the first Roberts product I've bought and have to say I am delighted with it. It is easy to set-up and the poor quality cable mentioned in another review has provided a full strength signal in an area where I cannot get FM signal. The sound is crystal clear and streaming music from my iPhone is a delight to listen too, and I can charge my iPad/iPhone via the USB connection which ensures I'm not draining the battery whilst using Bluetooth. The unit is a good looking high quality product.....highly recommended. 16 January 2014
Such a shame On paper this is a terrific piece of equipment. It has an alarm clock, DAB and FM radio, Bluetooth and a 2.1 sound system. All this in compact dimensions and it appears well made. It is therefore a shame that it does not meet expectations as it has a couple of snags. Firstly, the aerial is simply a length of black wire that looks quite untidy. If the unit was sitting on a bedside table it may hang down the back out of sight but on a kitchen worktop it just looks scruffy. More importantly though, the sound is very bass dominant. In fact it has so much bass that it becomes quite 'boomy' and simply swamps speech. So much so that after a few days of trying to listen to news bulletins I just gave up as it was impossible to make out the words. If it had a tone control or equaliser this could be corrected but unfortunately there is no tone adjustment. If this item had a decent telescopic aerial and a tone control it would be a superb unit. It is such a shame that it has neither and therefore it has had to be returned for a refund. 13 December 2013
