Roberts CHRONODAB DAB/DAB+/FM Digital Alarm Clock Radio with Instant Time Set

The ChronoDAB is a digital clock radio with a large clear LCD display. Offering 20 station presets and the option to wake-up to your choice of DAB/FM radio or buzzer. The ChronoDAB clock radio combines high performance with classic styling and a large easy-to-read LCD display. As an added benefit you’ll find the dual multi-function alarms are simple to set, very handy if you often change the time you get up.

Multi-Stage Dimmer

The brightness of the display can be adjusted when the radio is in standby mode or in use in order to adapt the intensity of the display to suit the ambient room lighting.

Simple Alarm Settings

The ChronoDAB has two alarms which can be set to wake you to DAB, FM radio or buzzer alarm. Each alarm can be set to sound once, daily, on weekdays or at weekends.

Automatic Station Search

As soon as you switch your ChronoDAB on, it will begin a thorough search of the local and nationally available digital radio stations. You may find stations you never knew existed, or listen to digital only stations such as BBC 6 music.

It looks and feels well made. Chunky with a good weight to it. Not flimsy, flexible and light.
It has a proper power cable rather than a mains adaptor, so no need to worry about leaving the power-supply behind in a hotel room when on a business trip.
The buttons are clearly labelled, and work without the need to press so hard the unit creaks under the pressure.
The display is large, clear, uncluttered and easily legible on 2 of the 3 brightness setting.
Sound quality is perfect (for me), as all I intend to use it for is a clock radio.
I was almost able to set it all up, set the alarms, and get it working without having to actually read the instructions at all, the buttons and menus are that clear & well laid out. I only had to read the instructions to find out how to set an alarm to "RADIO/BUZZER/OFF" and how to turn the alarm off once is was sounding. Of those two I would probably found the solution to the first myself had it not been that the location I put the alarm in had those switches against the wall an not in plain sight.
Having 2 alarms is perfect for me. I work weekdays, and alternate Saturdays. So I simply set alarm 1 to "WEEKDAYS" and set alarm 2 to "WEEKENDS."
I can turn alarm 2 on or off as required.
Unlike a 1 alarm radio I do not have to worry about forgetting to turn the only available alarm back on Sundays and then being late Monday as alarm 1 (WEEKDAYS) can be left on all the time.

Q: So why only 4 stars?
A: Because I can not give 4.5 stars.

So why the loss of half a Star?

1. The aerial is a bit of wire hanging out the back. Unlike a rigid aerial you can not position it to get a good signal and let go.

Excellent radio in virtually every respect. It has a very clear large display and plenty of volume. I use it as a bedside radio making full use of the two alarms and sleep function. Easy to use the preset button in calling up stations. Only downside is the volume of the radio on wake up (alarm set to radio) seems much lower than the normal audio volume and doesn't wake me. However this is no problem since radio has a buzzer alarm option and this is an effective wake up sound.

Wanted to replace our 20 year old clock/radio. Decided to go for a DAB. One problem we have is reception of DAB is very limited in our house so a risk as to whether it would be ok in the location we wanted. Reviewed all the ones they had in the bigger retail chains and this Roberts had the best reception in the shop, but didnt have it in stock. Found it on Amazon so decided to get it through them, £5 cheaper as well. Works brilliantly, would definately recommend.

Had the radio for a week so here are my thoughts.

On the plus side, it is simple to set up, has very good reception, the clock is easy to read and can be set to three levels of brightness, isn't too bulky for a bedside cabinet and looks ok.

On the negative side, the tone is too bassy and sometimes makes it difficult to hear a male voice, the sleep timer requires a minimum of three operations to set it which is annoying, the aerial is a wire, the buttons are difficult to navigate in the dark, one with a nipple and the others arranged either side would have been helpful.

It's a big improvement from my trusted old analogue bedside companion but the tone and controls need some working on by Roberts.

Large green display, shame no auto dimmer just 3 level manual but middle option seems best compromise. The display does go bright every time you push a button making settings easier & then times out and reverts to 'dimmer' setting.
Sound quality reasonable, better than my Pure Siesta (that failed altogether after 2-3 years), rear facing speaker takes out any tinny sounds. Buttons spread out OK, not like cheaper Roberts, can easily find positions in dark.
Tuning seemed good, DAB stations fine, no issues with quality or reception (we have generally poor reception normally).
Sleep feature fine, can select 90 mins down to 5 mins but need to push at least 3 buttons (2 if you let 90mins just timeout & revert to normal display).
Volume control very good, low level volume for night-time very controllable (again my Pure was either too loud or too quiet).
Separate alarm buttons on side which mean you can set the alarm for daily operation and easily switch off without re-programming when next used. Setting the 'once only' alarm a bit fiddly as it then asks for the date and defaults to 'today' (rather than tomorrow).
10 station presets (10 DAB, 10 FM) easy to set-up and although no individual buttons, can be accessed from either end of the scan up/down sequence(ie one push on 'up' gives Preset 1 and one push on 'down' gives Preset 10 hence 2 buttons are virtually individual buttons).
I use the alarm buzzer rather than the alarm radio hence fine, others say the escalating volume on the radio setting didn't wake them. It does come on quite loud eventually.
Overall very pleased, would strongly recommend compared to my previous Pure Siesta.
