Q & As

ROBERTS SOUND 38 DAB/FM/CD Clock Radio, Black/Silver 4 5 17 17
Great product for the price Very easy to set up, we have two now work slightly different but can live with that for the great price, kept waiting till it came down to get the second one. Our second one had fault with cd player - but it was replaced straight away with no hassle. 14 August 2014
Excellent choice This small radio / CD player is just perfect for my small house. It looks good, sounds good, and is easy to use. It is very light in weight, so easily moved if required. 12 August 2014
not many around at this quality Been looking for a small compact DAB radio with the facility of CD/MP3 player.Not many on the market - but found this Roberts Sound 38. Can't praise this high enough - particularly the quality of the sound - incredible. Didn't realise what we had been missing with the previous radio it replaces! They seem to have packed so much into this unit - particularly the ease of use of the CD player which remembers where you left off last time .Incredible for the price and the John Lewis warranty- go ahead you won't regret purchasing this unit. 28 May 2014
Tidy and compact I replaced my music system with this radio. I wanted something which would play CDs and have access to radio stations. It takes up very little room and the sound quality is good. It looks good and is easy to clean. However last night I could not switch it on and wonder if the button is faulty. This morning it works OK but I am now a bit wary as I rely on it, hence only three stars. 27 May 2014
Surprisingly good sound The sound quality is very good for such a small unit, even on louder volumes. I'm very happy with this purchase. 21 May 2014
Multi-functional Alarm to wake to This is a nice compact multi-functional alarm clock with multiple options to wake you. The sound is good and I like the DAB radio. It allows up to four alarms to be programmed. There are however a few quirks that could have been improved. Programming the alarms is not very intuitive, which means that you have to re-discover the sequence of keys to change the alarm settings. It's possible to program an alarm to repeat on sequences such as daily, Mon to Friday, Mon to Sat, Sat and Sunday, but I could not figure out how to program a repeating alarm on Saturdays or Sundays only. The other nuisance is that the alarm display shows the radio station instead of the time after the alarm has gone off, which means I'm not sure what time it is after I have been lying listening to the radio for a while........ but maybe there is a display option I need to discover to configure the display to show both time and radio station. These are all minor irritations because basically this is a good product with good audio quality and a nice compact style. 20 May 2014
Excellent purchase! Like other Roberts radios it does exactly what it is meant to do. It is easy to use even when one is half awake as the alarm goes off! Sound quality is good. 20 May 2014
