Excellent substitute for a Bose
on 14 October 2008
I had to replace my ageing Bose Wave CD Radio, which went on the blink (dodgy CD player, and then it kept on switching itself to Kiss FM at high volume - even when off!). I would happily have bought another Bose, but this Roberts box seemed MUCH better value, including DAB radio, CD, and iPod dock, all of which work well. Like the Bose, the sound is not really hifi, and classical music can sound slightly boomy and/or harsh in the loud bits. However, like the Bose, the sound is very good for a box of this size, with remarkably good bass, and perfect for use in our kitchen (we use it mostly when cooking and washing up). I think the Bose sound was probably slightly better, but very little to choose between them. After a week's use, highly recommended.
