Q & As

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 33 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good value Best radio ever. Neat and light. Bought 2 as gifts 01 December 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Worth it gt sound, looks good. Very pleased with this purchase. 13 October 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by A bit disappointing. Disappointed that the on/off switch was not more 'definite'. Only needs a very light touch but as digital radio does not come on instantly like FM radios, never sure if it is on or not, so touch switch again and off it goes! Because the radio is so light, the tone is not as good as older heavier radios. 01 September 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Beautiful radio I bought this for my husband's birthday present and he was delighted. It looks beautiful and is very easy to use. 23 August 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great little radio. Good reception and a reasonable tone from this easy to use Roberts radio. Rechargeable batteries are not included, but once you have installed some, the radio will recharge them when plugged in and not in use. Made with quality materials, appealing to both the eye and touch. 11 August 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Decent all-rounder Brought this through john Lewis excellent click and collect service. Obviously smaller and less choice of finish than Roberts more expensive Revival but still fitted with a 1 watt speaker and the cream one I purchased really looks the part. Excellent reception on dab and FM with rock solid tuning. Unlike the more neutral sound of the Pure radios this little Roberts is tuned to give slightly more bass which may not be to everyone's taste. I found the levels a little muddy at lower listening levels with the radio really coming into its own as the volume was increased, giving a warm retro sound for both music and spoken word. Obviously at this price range the vintage doesn't have all the whistle and bell facilities of its more expensive rivals but, the plus side is that this makes it very easy and simple to operate. My best advice is to try and listen to one before you buy. 29 July 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Radio and looks great I purchased the white version of this radio and it is incredibly well finished. It is light and portable which is what I was after and happily comes out in the garden with me. However it is also sturdy and I have no worries about it. The reception is brilliant and the sound quality is excellent. The ability to use rechargeable batteries and then recharge them directly in the radio is an excellent touch. 28 July 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excelent Product A nice quality radio . A bit smaller than I thought . Has a great sound and looks great . 14 July 2015
