ROBERTS SOUND 38 DAB/FM/CD Clock Radio, Black/Silver

Product information

Enjoy crystal clear DAB broadcasts without giving up your favourite FM programmes, spin CDs and always be up in time thanks to the clever SOUND 38. The unique cube design is perfect for tucking away on worktops and bedside tables while its range of alarm functions let you wake however you want.

Along with the FM tuner, you’ll still be able to listen to your favourite broadcasts - and if you ever get tired of listening to the radio, the top-loading CD player will have you enjoying your music collection in moments. The aux input even makes it easy to listen to music from MP3 players and iPods.

  • Three alarm options - buzzer, radio or CD - and multiple alarm settings let you wake when you want, how you want.
  • The dimmable display makes it perfect for the bedroom when bright LEDs can keep you from falling asleep.

Q & As

Rated 4 out of 5 by 43 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Neat and compact. Perfect . A very neat piece of equipment which is just what I was after . 08 December 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fit for purpose and excellent quality Required for use in kitchen and its compact design requires little worktop space, whilst the tonal sound and clarity is of the highest standard both for radio and cd output. Extremely satisfied with my choice and enjoying programmes and music of my choice whilst doing my chores. 17 November 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great CD Clock Radio I love this little piece of equipment: nice size, good sound, easy to operate. So glad i chose this one. 17 November 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Christmas present looks good, sounds good. Will be in regular use. 26 December onwards! Certain things to set up hope I can manage it! 17 November 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by More arduous to set up and use than I would have expected from a Roberts product On the positive side the sound reproduction is of the quality you would expect from a Roberts radio and it looks good too - but, oh dear what a pain to set up and use. The sequence is not logical for me and because the face with the control pads face is absolutely vertical and with the power cable on the opposite side it cannot be turned over to make viewing the screen easier when setting up. Even changing radio stations cannot be completed in one push of a pad and then you need to be able to view the screen to see what station you are selecting. Would have helped of the screen was set at an angle to facilitate ease of view. Overall a bit of a pain. 12 November 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Wonderful. Beautiful sound. I bought it mainly to be able to listen to my audio books on CD. The CD player remembers where I am on the disc. It is absolutely marvellous. However as there is also a DAB radio I now able listen to the radio as well. The quality is superb. I wish I had invested in it earlier. I bought it through John Lewis as I knew I could trust them if things weren't quite right. 11 November 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love it I bought this to replace an older CD player in the kitchen. It takes up less room on the worktop and looks neat and tidy. It was easy to set up and works well. It has good sound and is more than loud enough for the space. A good buy. 23 September 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great little box that outperforms its size John Lewis and Roberts - a great combination A great little box that outperforms its size. Sound quality and DAB reception are both very good. 08 September 2015
