Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
First impressions of this item were very good, it is sturdy, tactile and definitely has the wow factor with the faux leather and shiny gold/brass logo and fittings. It looks much better than the pictures and you can imagine this being lovingly crafted by a pair of old boys in brown coats in a workshop in the Cotswolds. Probably not but it's nice to dream and the finished article with its royal crest would not look out of place in Kensington Palace or the library at Chartwell. Opening the case to insert 4 x D batteries spoils the illusion slightly with the MDF type material on show but it's still a bit of theatre with the blingy brass clasp seemingly inviting you in to have a good look around.

Setup was fairly straight forward - being of the bloke variety the substantial (and all English) manual was put to one side and I went into full DAB-ble mode. Left dial is on/off and volume, the right dial for navigating menus and selecting items. DAB was the easiest; the station scan being very quick and pre-setting 10 favourites is nice and easy. Internet radio next was also ok - if your wi-fi router is WPS enabled as most now are pairing them up was quick and much more preferable to entering the code using the dials. However it does have a tendency to forget the wi-fi setting and so you may find yourself having to repeat the process which can be irritating

Sound is crisp and clear on both, very good in fact and I love all the info provided such as song title/artist etc on the easy to read LCD. There are plenty of settings to play with including preset equalizer modes for pop/jazz etc but like me you will probably leave it on normal. All bases are covered with DAB+ compatibility and FM included too but I'm yet to bother with that as my DAB signal is good enough.

I'll admit that I'm an ungrateful sod but I just don't 'get' this radio or understand why it is so expensive. Received as a gift, it fell apart almost instantly. The catch that holds the back closed just fell off and would have done so at first inspection which makes me question QC on the production line.

The radio is quiet handsome and nicely finished externally. Buttons and dials are not horrible, but not particularly tactile to my preferences. The strap and it's attachments are very nice. However when you open it up it and with the exception of the chromed piano hinge, it seems to be cheaply made; MDF, stray glue, cheap plastic components and a run of the mill speaker, not particularly neatly wired either. Having said this, the only reason that you would want to open it is to install some D cell batteries to make the radio into a portable. At £200 though, is it too much to ask for an integrated rechargeable battery pack?

Sound is perfectly adequate, but at the end of the day it's a single smallish speaker and is limited by basic physics. My opinion; it's Ok for music, but better if you listen mostly to speech radio which is clear and has a warm tonality.

Functionality seems somewhat limited compared to other DAB radios costing half the price. Sure, it does Bluetooth but if you are going to that effort to play stuff from your phone then you probably have a better HiFi or the phone's own headphones will probably do a better job.

My overall feeling is that this radio has been created by marketing people who think they have spotted a niche in the retro radio market and accountants who have skimped on the components rather than radio engineers who really love making radios. It's not packed with gimmicks which is fine by me and if it cost £100 it would be terrific, but at £200 I would expect something just a little bit special.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I have owned a couple of Roberts radios in the past, but have never used an internet radio, so I thought this would be a good device to listen to one of my favourite mediums on around the house. The model is very stylish, with a nod to the retro look - i.e. leather and and gold/brass effect trims (although some people may find this detail rather tacky!) but it certainly stands out from the more standard plastic or aluminum models which dominate the market. It includes all of the general and mostly standard features of these radios, including both DAB and FM radio settings, USB access for MP3 access, and an alarm plus clock facility. The advantage of this particular model is that it links to home wifi to provide an internet radio facility, also it can access your PC playlists and Spotify account. Unfortunately for me these were of no value as I’m finding Windows playlists increasingly redundant as you can’t download these any more against the rapidly diminishing numbers of non Apple MP3 players available on the market, and whilst I have a Spotify account, I don’t have the streaming facility (which costs £9.99 a month to run) for this so I can’t comment on this feature of the radio.

However, that aside, I used all the various other features, so I’ll comment on those. Firstly, the instruction manual is quite long and somewhat detailed, but not so complex that it's impossible to plough your way through it. If you don’t have much grasp of the various technologies described, it's fairly intuitive, so tuning into and setting up time, alarm, DAB and FM presets are all relatively easy with a bit of patience. The sound quality if quite impressive (at least in terms of radio amplification, but not comparable to the sound emitted via high specification speakers).
