Q & As

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 74 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by My third of these Have bought three of these over a long period and only renewed last one as I managed to drop it and break it. Excellent because has rechargeable batteries and therefore no need to keep renewing batteries. Sound quality good, although I only listen to speech radio. Could do with a carrying handle. 20 April 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Easy to use Very good radio, easy to use. Sounds good. Tunes in really well in an area where other brands don't. 08 March 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good for bathrooms All DAB radios are power-hungry but this is one of the better options for bathroom use, where only battery operation is possible, or where you want to carry a radio from room to room. It takes AA batteries and if you choose rechargeable ones they can be recharged by simply plugging the radio into the mains. As with all DAB radios the batteries run out without warning (maddening if you're intently listening to something while in the bath) so I find it's best to recharge routinely, before the batteries run down completely. Otherwise this is a neat, compact design with nice sound quality. To call up a pre-set station you turn and press the tuning knob - not quite as convenient as the numbered pre-sets on another Roberts model I have, but only an issue if you often change stations. 08 March 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fantastic Radio! I have now bought two of these radios - one for upstairs and one for downstairs. They're great - reasonable price, good quality sound, easy to use, no fiddling trying to get stations - what's not to like? Would highly recommend them. 23 February 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fantastic product, Good quality product easy to find stations and sounds brillant 02 February 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by A VERY SUCCESSFUL CHRISTMAS PRESENT My daughter was delighted with the Roberts Unologic DAB Digital Radio I purchased from John Lewis for one of her Christmas presents. The radio is everything she hoped for - very simple to use with all the programmes pre-set. The minute she turned it on, it worked straight away - no looking up instructions - it was all ready set up. and it was delivered very quickly and well packed. Thank you John Lewis - you always deliver!! 27 January 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Roberts Unologic DAB Digital Radio is just the ticket! We were looking for a good value, easy to use radio (with digital capacity) and found our perfect fit with the Roberts Unilogic radio sold at John Lewis. It has a very easy to use dial and on/off button and the reception is perfect. Our old radio was in the family for nearly 40 years without letting us down (too much) and this one looks to be made to last about that long! 26 January 2016
