Q & As

Rated 4 out of 5 by 22 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 Simple and Effective Good sound and reception. Easy to set up and works really well. Obviously not Hi Fi but very good sound for the price. Will go reasonably loud but not for large rooms, and not boomy or distorted. Great value! 09 February 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by simple and effective easy to use, plenty of channels, small but good quality 09 February 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by Don’t make my mistake I didn’t think this through! This ‘portable’ radio ends up not being used because I didn’t buy it to have it permanently plugged in. It requires 6 AA batteries – so when they go flat every few days I have to find a knife to prize out the batteries, put them into two chargers, wait till the next day to scoop them out of the chargers and shove them back into the radio. I had a Roberts radio with built in charger before and didn’t realise how good it was. I wish I’d bought something like the ROBERTS Unologic DAB Digital Radio I didn't read reviews online as I prefer to talk to the staff but I didn't think to ask them about this! 08 January 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good small radio Light weight and easy to use, very pleased with this radio. 03 January 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Brilliant DAB2 radio especially at the price A no frills DAB2 radio that is easy to use at an excellent price. It has 3 presets and is very easy to select other stations by turning the big dial and pressing to select. Sound is not the best, but at this price you wouldn't expect more. Would have preferred a volume dial instead of the up / down buttons, but that's only a minor criticism. Have bought 2 - for the kitchen and bathroom, where both run on battery power alone. I'm using quality rechargeable batteries, and so far I haven't had to recharge them yet, and I've had the radios for 5 weeks - excellent. 06 October 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by ROBERTS Classic DAB2 Digital Radio The Roberts Classic DAB2 Digital Radio is easy to use, well made and excellent value. It was easy to set up. It's compact size and simple controls make it very portable. Sound quality is excellent. The tuning directions on the top of the radio are clear and easy to read. Thank you. 06 October 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Buy Purchased this for my mother. Set up the radio to the pre-set stations within seconds. Fantastic clear sound. Highly recommend. Very good value for money. 29 September 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very good for the price I didn't expect much for the price but was pleasantly surprised by it. Don't expect great booming sound though. As a kitchen radio it's ideal for our needs and the display is excellent. 04 August 2015
