Got this after sending my Revo Axis X3 back in disgust. Bearing in mind this is less than half the price, in fact even not, I am extremely happy with this product. Good things that spring to mind:

I had it set up and running in less than 5 minutes, I didn't need the manual. It was obvious to do, and set the clock itself. just the way a product should be, simple and obvious. Even the 2 alarms. Very impressive.

Has separate alarm options for weekday/weekends. Vitally important as I need to be unconcious longer weekends.

Sound is absolutely fine for the speech stations I mainly listen to, volume is in small enough steps to finely adjust, unlike some products I have. I don't need superb 800 watt Dobly (deliberately misspelt) sound in my bedroom.

Has an easy to find in the dark real volume dial!! Aaaaaaaaaahhhhhh!!!!! (cry of triumph) No impossible to find buttons or daft touch screens.

Very importantly as it is by my head at night, the display goes really dim, enough so I can see in the pitch dark it but not enough to be the least bit irritating. It has several light level settings, maybe 5 levels, and works fine for me.

The display is very readable, maybe 20+mm tall, absolutely fine for across the room. I have good eyesight but the last one I had the clock numbers must have been around 3mm tall for some reason.

Blutooth link to phone/ipad works well, paired in a few seconds and even controllable from the radio itself for pause and previous/next. also seems to stop replay if the sleep function on the radio is used, so you can restart whatever you were listening to where the radio shut down.

It starts on DAB within 3-4 seconds, much quicker than several I have owned and tried, very good.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I recently got a nice, smallish Roberts DAB clock-radio (with a lovely analogue face) and was pleased with it's functionality, generally, but felt it was somewhat lacking in the sound department - the speaker was on the back, so reflected off the wall, and was generally tinny and weak on bass. Anyway, my mum commented that she needed a new clock radio and wanted to go DAB, so I gave it to her and bought this BEAST.

Make no mistake, this isn't a teeny tiny little clock radio, it takes up half my bedside table! It's not massive by any means, but easily twice the size of the previous one I had.

Unboxing and set-up was a breeze - simply plug it in, unravel the little wire aerial, and it tunes itself in. INSTANTLY I was hit by how much better the sound quality is - the bass is deep and vibrant, the mid and high ranges are punchy but without the tinny-ness of the previous model. The fact that the two stereo speakers are on the front makes a world of difference to the sound, and the .1 subwoofer (all included in the same unit, in case you were worried that it might need to be stashed elsehwhere like a normal subwoofer would be) really delivers.

Best of all, it excels as an alarm clock radio in all the same places that the previous Roberts did too, which makes it very surprising that this isn't being advertised as a clock radio. It has multiple alarms with multiple settings (daily, weekly, length of snooze, alarm source and volume etc, plus a multi-brightness dimmer for the display), as well as sleep functions. The buttons are simple enough to use, and I didn't need to consult the manual once - though they could have seperated out some of the buttons (e.g. you have to hold down the 'on' button to access the sleep mode, then twiddle the volume to adjust the length of time).

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I received the Blutune 50 and carefully unpacked it, uncoiled the aerial wire and plugged it in. I waited for it to scan for DAB stations but it found none. I forced a manual scan, still no luck. I know that we don't have the strongest dab signal where we live in rural Norfolk but I was still a bit surprised to get nothing at all. Tried the FM facility and got the usual FM static but no stations were found. Tried moving it to different locations in the house and even outside. Still nothing. Checked the Bluetooth and Aux input modes on this very versatile device and both worked just fine so I suspected that there was a fault with the aerial.

So I sent an email to Roberts explaining the situation. Got a reply on the next working day. They arranged for me to ship the unit back, at their expense, and sent me a replacement. Now that is what I call great customer service. Every manufacturer will have the occasional unit which fails, but how they address that is crucial so 5 out of 5 to Roberts for that.

Plugged in the replacement unit and immediately it scanned and picked up 17 DAB stations. The sound quality is first class. Even the wire aerial seems to function perfectly adequately. The unit is packed with features - dimming the display enables me to use it as a bedside radio (so many units have a display which is too bright and keeps me awake). It has a great alarm function with multiple settings. It has a fairly small footprint so doesn't get in the way. I like the look of it too. Hooking up a bluetooth device took just moments. It also has a usb charging port on the back so I can charge my phone overnight.

So, thanks to Roberts customer service I now have a fully working terrific piece of audio equipment.
