You can either run it off the mains using the included power transformer, or from 4 D cell batteries. The radio does not recharge the batteries: if you are using rechargable batteries then you will have to remove them and charge them in a separate charger, which takes some time. I have two sets of rechargable D cell NiMH batteries that I alternate between: one set in the radio while the other set is on charge.
Living in Continental Europe, I would like to know if the AC adapter comes with a British plug or a Euro plug 17 Nov 2013
Mine came with a 3 pin British plug.
it says there is a guarantee but it does not say how long it is for. Can you advise me on this please 12 Oct 2014
The radio is guaranteed for 12 months. This information is provided on the last page of the owners manual which can be downloaded from Roberts web site.
Does this radio have a remote control? 31 Jan 2014
No. But you can download either a iPhone app or more recently an Android app to a tablet/phone and use that over the home Wi-Fi. I can use the Android app in the morning to put music on for the children in the front room without getting out of bed! Older versions of this radio may need to be updated to the latest firmware.
Hi Phil, this radio does have a USB port but it is for media to be read from, i.e. audio files you might have on a memory stick. I have tried this and it works well. For external speakers you need to use the 3.5mm line jack on the back. You would need to have an amplifier though as the level is intended as an amplifier input. For general audio around the home I use one of those low cost FM modulators in this jack and broadcast FM on my chosen frequency. I can then tune an FM radio anywhere in the home to listen to this radio which is wonderfully flexible.
Does this play itunes from an iPad via wifi ? 17 Nov 2014
No it won't play music from your iPad via WiFi but you can hard wire it from your headphone socket to the Aux socket of the radio. It will also play iTunes music stored on a memory stick. You can also control the Internet radio from your iPad if you download the Roberts app from iTunes
