Q & As

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 60 reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Modern Clock Radio A bit advance and difficult to figure out. Finding one's favourite radio stations and storing them in the clock's memory is a bit of mystery as the instructions are not very clear. Looks very nice on the bed side table. 30 July 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Serious Design Faults I had owned a Roberts FM clock radio for the last 15 years and when it recently malfunctioned I had no hesitation in buying the latest DAB version. This turned out to be a terrible mistake Firstly, the screen brightness on my previous FM model was controlled automatically. The new DAB radio has to be selected manually to one of 3 level of illumination and therefore has to be changed depending on whether you are viewing by day or night. Secondly, and most importantly, the radio alarm comes on initially at an extremely low volume and very slowly increases but not to the level originally set when listening to the radio normally. This means that if, for example, you set the radio alarm for a 7am wake-up you will have missed the first minute of the BBC News before the volume is loud enough to be heard clearly. Thirdly, although the sound is quite reasonable for music it is not particularly clear for speech for speech and is slightly muffled with a bias towards the bass tones. Unfortunately there is no treble/bass control to correct this Fourthly it is quite complicated to set up, whereas the old model was extremely simple and far less time consuming. Overall, I was so dissatisfied with the performance of this latest DAB model that I have returned it to John Lewis for a refund. It is a pity that Roberts do not appear to consult users when designing what should be a relatively straightforward radio alarm system... 28 July 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Not as easy to use as my old Roberts I have had a Roberts Digital alarm clock for years but some of the buttons gave up and had read good reviews for this. I find this one much more difficult to use. You can't set the alarm if the radio is on. My old one showed date and time together. You have to check what the date is before you can set up the alarm for 'once'. My old one had 5 buttons for preset channels and so it was much easier to just hit a button when not quite awake. Would have preferred white. Volume gets too loud on alarm setting. On the good side it has a good sound and reception. I expect I will get used to the change but at the moment I wish I had looked at other alarm clocks. 28 July 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Easy to use, lovely sound Easy to use, lovely sound and looks smart. Good DAB reception with the aerial, which just hangs down the back of the bedside cabinet. Digital display is clear and easy to read. It dims in the dark so that it is not distracting at night. It is also easy to to find the on/off and volume buttons in the dark. It is handy to be able to plug the headphones into the back to listen to the radio without disturbing others. The sleep function is also easy to operate. This is an excellent clock radio. 21 July 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great product Great clock radio. The only problem I have is that you can't control the volume of the radio when used as the alarm, it starts quietly but then just gets louder & louder until it reaches the maximum. It doesn't seem possible to set a maximum volume which is lower than the maximum 21 July 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent product! As a long time Roberts Radio/Alarm user I was surprised that it took me so long to set up this new purchase. However, once I read the instruction manual it was a doddle! The display is great and the sound quality is surprisingly good. 30 June 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great DAB clock radio Great sound quality, big display (dimmable) and 2 alarms. many great features. 30 June 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by OK I found it difficult to find an old-fashioned clock radio until I found this one. It 'does what it says on the tin' but I can't find a way to reduce the volume in the morning. It starts off quietly and then increases to become very loud. This awakens my partner which is not really satisfactory and it's louder than I would like it to be too. The sound is quite tinny but I don't expect an awful lot more. 05 June 2015
