I have to say this radio is fantastic, having owned a RD60 and a classic the sound on this little thing is the best I've heard... Obviously Roberts have been working on the speaker side of things. It's smaller than I imagined but looks retro 70's style. Paired with my iPhone easily...was expecting a dull wooden sound but it was really clear.

This is a beautiful radio which is easy to set up and use. Once you've mastered how the buttons etc work then it all becomes very instinctive to operate.

DAB and FM reception is substantially better and more consistent than my previous (supermarket £10) set. The sound quality is excellent for such a 'basic' unit.

I decided against an Internet radio because of the issues surrounding the BBC changing the format of its streams making many sets in need of a (yet to be released) firmware update or even replacement. In any case you can easiliy listen to internet streams via free apps such as TuneIn or the BBC's radio app which also contains several podcasts (as does iTunes). These can then be played back via the sets Bluetooth facility which is a doddle to set up and of great quality.

The aesthetics of this set are very 'retro' and traditional and as such will never date. I recall my father having a similar set when I was younger, perhaps drawing me to this item initially.

I've deducted one star for the lack of useable USB slot to charge / play media from and lack of alarm - both of which would make the unti more versatile.

owned one of these radios in the past , as a previous reviewer said it is smaller without the oomph of the original.
I seem to remember the original had a little wheel thing underneath to allow you to spin it aswell.
my reason for 4 stars is entirely because it is not loud enough.
perfectly fine for every other use I need it for mainly as a radio on the side in the kitchen , the blu tooth works easily , although it seems to lose some of its limited volume when using the blu tooth facility.
its all in all a good compact quality looking radio with blu tooth , considering the price it is fine , I would reccomend

Beautiful look and clear sound. Though the lower frequenzies is not there. If Robert could take som from the small bluetooth speakers from BOSE it would have been perfect. Then add a button to cut out the deep bass when you do not want it to be there.

Does the job. The reception isn't great and you do have to extend the aerial completely to receive all DAB stations, which you'll need to take into account if you plan on placing it somewhere within a tight space, eg in your kitchen.
