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.

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

ROBERTS SOUND 38 DAB/FM/CD Clock Radio, Black/Silver 4 5 20 20
Does what it says on the box Nice compact article.Easy to operate.Does not have a remote-so the added bonus of exercise when an adjustment is needed. 16 December 2014
Ideal present This DAB radio and CD player is small but exactly what I was looking for and is the perfect size but provides sound that you would expect from a much larger item and was a perfect present. 12 November 2014
Faulty I wanted a little cd radio for my bedside table, found this instore and loved it, no stock instore so ordered online and delivered to Waitrose. Easy set up, not much space taken, used mainly for radio, good sound quality. CD playing is awful! I've played a handful of CD's on it, some old, some new, some brand new out of the wrapping, every CD played jumped through almost every song, very very annoying. I cleaned the not dirty inside, polished the CD's, placed the player on a place mat to see if anything made a difference, nothing did. I've now returned the item and had a full refund, for this amount of money I expect everything to work. Such a shame as the rest of the player is great, I think I just got a faulty one but I'm now looking for a different one. 30 October 2014
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
