Q & As

Rated 4.9 out of 5 by 34 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by perfect for our requirements Bought this radio for my wife to listen to french radio. Best programmes are on long wave and not too many radios include this wave band. The tone is perfectly acceptable albeit with a slight hiss which is quiet enough not to be annoying. Cant think of anything to criticise so would recommend as a best buy. 24 March 2015

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great value for the money. Sound quality is really good and this radio has a great finish, looks far more expensive than it cost. Bought it as a gift for my husband and he is delighted with it. 10 March 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Buy this Radio :) I have been looking for a good radio to put in my stables which are in a very large high roofed building next to 100 rearing calves so feeding time is very noisy..... This radio rocks, simple easy to use, great sound quality and the aerial is not even out!! - can't recommend highly enough and its a great price with 2 years warranty. Throw out those DAB radios and return to the roots..... 26 February 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Happy days! This radio brings me happiness as I potter away on my days off work. Fantastic! Thank you John Lewis. 11 February 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by This radio has changed my life! No exaggeration. This was my Christmas present to myself because I found the four or five radios dotted about my house impossible to listen to – not least the inappropriately named Pure which produces such a 'woolly' sound. The Volume and Tone knobs mean that you can have a wonderfully clear sound at a medium volume. I read the reviews before I bought it and I am now joining those who ecstatically claim it is the best small radio ever! 27 January 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fantastic Sound Excellent radio, wonderful crystal clear reception. Stands up to the rigours of my south facing bathroom and fully portable so will be able to use it in the garden when the season starts. This is the modern day equivalent of my old Roberts Rambler which I bought from John Lewis in 1978 and which finally packed up 5 years ago. In the meantime I have tried portable DAB radios none of which was suitable for bathroom use. The Roberts Gemini 7 is an excellent DAB radio but did not last long on battery power so is now used in the kitchen on mains power. The Roberts RD-60 Revival was the best with excellent performance on batteries but after 4 years in the bathroom the red leatherette was badly faded and peeling. Roberts to their credit replaced it when I sent it for refurbishment and I now use it elsewhere in the house. The Pure One Mi Series 2 was useless and after 5 months became a fire hazard as the charger became dangerously hot - John Lewis gave me a refund and I then bought this analogue radio which I wish I had bought in the first place. I very much like DAB radios but nothing is as good as this Roberts portable analogue radio for use in a south facing bathroom. Just to repeat - the sound reproduction is fantastic. 21 January 2015
