This stylish and compact Wi-Fi internet radio is completely portable too, either use it with the mains adaptor (included) or 6 x LR20/D size batteries.

The high tech STREAM 205 supports MP3/WMA/FLAC/AAC playback via USB and also comes with a free 30 day trial of Last FM; a clever technology that intuitively recommends music that it thinks you will like, according to what you are playing. You can then decide whether you want to �love� it or �ban� it.

The new software allows the radio to be remotely controlled using our ConnectR app for the iPhone and iPod touch.

    I have been a radio listening enthusiast for over 30 years and decided that I needed an internet radio that I could use without the computer. I was at first divided between the Roberts 202 and the Pure Evoke Flow. From the reviews I read the Pure seemed to be popular, although I found many reviews which said that they could go wrong easily. So I went to my local electrical store and listened to both the Roberts 202 and the Pure Evoke. There was no competition really. The Roberts sounded great while the Pure sounded muddy. The only problem was that the shop had sold out of the Roberts and also I had heard that the button layout on the 202 was a little fiddly.

    So I went home and did another internet search and stumbled across the Roberts 205. It looked similar to the 202 but the buttons were laid out better and from what I could see, it had only been on the market for a couple of months. 2 days later my radio arrived and I can honestly say that its the best radio I have ever owned. Despite there being no dials to change the treble and bass, the sound was perfect straight out of the box.

    So, what's so great about this little radio?

    Well, for starters, I can pretty much pick up any internet radio station I want. Although there are only 5 preset button for internet radio (and 5 for FM and DAB too), I found that the best feature on this radio is that there is a section for favourites and also new stations that I have found myself. For anyone who doesnt already know, you can use this radio in conjunction with a website called the 'Frontier Silicon Wi-Fi Portal.

    For a radio with so many options it is a remarkable achievement to make it so simple to set up. Being somewhat familiar with the technology I took it straight out of the box and had it up and running on the internet in a couple of minutes without opening the manual. I'm not a HiFi connoisseur but I found the sound good too, benefiting no doubt from the largish case(for a portable radio).
    Setting up favourite internet stations through the web site is also a simple process but I have to admit to referring to the manual for this as it involves navigating through the radio menues to get an identification code specific to your radio.
    I live in a DAB gray area, the DAB receiver worked fine until I turned the bedside light on. Not a problem of this radio per-se but DAB seems particularly prone to interference from energy saving lights, something to watch.
    Persuading my Windows 7 PC to deliver music also required one more step than I anticipated as the radio found the PC fine but the PC wouldn't share any music. Definitely worth reading the manual for this.
    Navigating the BBCs listen again service is a little daunting. Unlike the BBC web site which has structure, on the radio you are presented with an alphabetical list of everything which is available for the chosen channel. Still it works just great when you have found what you want.

    Minor niggles (or why I didn't give it 5 stars):
    * Why isn't the clock backed up with a separate battery? It temporarily looses the time when switching from mains to battery (but gets it back again automatically).
    * Why does plugging the adapter in glitch the power? It takes the radio 30 seconds + to start up after power loss which is probably OK if it only happens when changing batteries.

    My first impressions were that this is a quality radio. It has in my opinion very nice styling and the user interface is very intuitive and well thought out. My problems with this radio started when I tried listening to it at low volume at night which is basically what I wanted it for. On either internet, DAB or FM there is a loud background noise that is audible at all times. One other reviewer Viliam from london has also commented on this problem. I also have a Pure Evoke Flow internet, DAB and FM radio costing around the same as the Roberts which is three and a half years old but has much higher quality sound albeit from one speaker and absolutely no background noise whatsoever. This noise I think is due to lack of shielding around some of the electronic components inside the radio. Leaving this shielding out is done to save on manufacturing costs but Roberts should not let their standards drop as this shielding would only add a few pence to each unit. To be honest having two speakers on a radio of this size is silly as they are so close together that you can't possibly get the full stereo effect, money could be saved there. So overall nice, but mine is going back due to what is really in this day and age an inexcusable and avoidable fault.

    This is my second internet radio. I also have tens of SW, LW, AM, and FM radios apart from HAM radios. I am an avid Short Wave listener and for a year also internet radio listerner. I am also an expat. I have electromagnetic syndrome by which I react to microwaves like mobile phone and WiFi. I have no WiFi at home. Instead I have a big powerline network at home permanently conected to a lot of devices. For me, it was very important that the internet radio has an Ethernet conection, because the one I had can only use WiFi. This issue limited my choice to Sageans, Roberts, and a few more radios (by the way, all high quality radio brands).

    I was doubting about buying the very succesful Roberts Stream 83i or this Stream 205. The Stream 205 was launched to the market at the begining of this year (2011) and it is the latest internet radio marketed by Roberts. After some research I understood that the Stream 205 is more similar to the Stream 83i than to the Stream 201, 203, 203, etc. The Stream 83i has a fantastic software and speakers that makes it one of the best internet radios. The Stream 202 and 203 are not up to challenge. I was afraid about the 205 being like its precesors. Instead Roberts has solved the software problems of its predecesor and change the speakers and it has listened to its customers by ading some new performances like accepting the use of batteries, that it is not available in the Stream 83i. This radio been built and designed on the Stream 83i and I see it as a beautiful Stream 83i with some new advantages. The white radio is a very beautyfull design, better than it looks in the pictures.

    Everything people said about the Stream 83i can be applied here. I have it for six months and I have not used yet some foctions like last.fm and the music player conected to a PC. Instead I have used the FM, DAB and internet radio several hours per day, seven days per week.
