Good stylish look, great sound, plenty of useful features and really easy to programme and use. Good value for money

Reasonable sound quality for a small radio. The CD player developed a fault after only 3months - the laser eye kept sticking momentarily - Unit replaced now waiting to see how that goes.

I am impressed by this Roberts radio. The sound quality is good and it has a CD player as well as a DAB (and FM) radio with an alarm function. This suits me just fine. I know the world has moved on in terms of internet radio dominating and CDs being replaced by downloads, but then what happens if you lose your broadband connection. On the negative side, the buttons on Roberts radios are a bit fiddly and unintuitive, and the design of is an acquired taste. Having said that, this radio is quite compact and unobtrusive, which I like.

Wanted REALLY good playback of my CDs - have had cheaper products which were a disappointment. This one is absolutely superb with marvellous tone and has increased my pleasure in listening to my music. Small and very neat design, easy to use. Would certainly recommend this Roberts player.

I've had this a few month sand it's certainly the best of the small DAB radio alarms I have owned.

People have commented about the controls being complex, but that is true of any DAB radio
alarm because there are more functions to fit into the buttons than older radios.

It is a little strange not getting a time display available when on, but I have found I have
got used to this quirk.

Neither has it failed to go off on the alarm so far, unlike another Roberts model we have [which
seems to be confused by updates or something].

Unlike other units we have had there is no hum that disturbs my wife, and the display can be dimmed effectively.

What makes the alarm not quite perfect for me is you can set alarms on a daily basis or for all weekdays
or weekends, but you can't set an alarm for say Tuesday and Thursday mornings, so not so good if you want
to be woken up at different times on different weekdays [which I do!] This leaves me setting up alarms
on my android phone which isn't ideal.

In a time and age where CD clock radios are becomming extinct, my hopes and aspirations were limited to only getting hold of some replacement for my old radio, so i didn't really order it for its features, or care that it was expensive compared to my old no-brand radio. However, once i recived it, I was impressed by its solid appearance and many features. As an avid audio book "reader" I appreciate especially the bookmark function. Also for music this is great as it let me continue my listening were i left off just like my car stereo. With the ability to playback mp3 files from CD's I have burned play-list compillation discs that plays every night without losing track of what's already been on. Unlike my old radio, this has RDS functionality for FM and pre-set stations, again just like my car stereo.With the DAB+ functionality, it is future proof as the FM band will be shut down in 2017 at my location. Perhaps most important its sound quality is really good for it's size, and it looks elegant too

The clock and radio work just fine, but the most frustrating aspect is that the time is not always displayed. So, if your alarm goes off (on radio setting) - you don't get to see the time - only scrolling information about the radio station. The only way to see the time is to press the snooze button which is irritating as you may not want to 'snooze' - YOU JUST WANT TO KNOW THE TIME! So, on that basis alone, i would not buy again. i would look for a clock radio where you can select the clock to stay on screen. i would change it in a heartbeat if it hadn't been so expensive.

I purchased this product because I like (very much) the sound quality of my Roberts 'Gemini 7' DAB radio,Unfortunately however its aerial attachment persists in coming loose and it cannot be effectively tightened without stripping the radio as the retaining nut is buried deep inside, well out of reach.

What a disappointment!!,,, The "Sound 38" clock radio has a very poor "boxy" sound quality that I cannot bear to listen to!. It is never used as a result, and has been a complete waste of money. Do not buy unless you have no sense of quality sound.Build quality is very poor with thin, flinsy plastic panels.

I have just got this radio and I have the same problem as Mr Lewin. When the radio comes on using the alarm I have no clock so don't know the time. There is a "Display" button which toggles between different screens including the time. This works when the radio has been turned on manually using the on/off button. However, this button does not work when the radio comes on with the alarm so I do not know the time when it wakes me up, all I can see is station information. I have contacted Roberts and they suggest returning the radio which they say is faulty. Will this cure the problem as others have reported this issue too? Has anybody any ideas?

Sorry, I am usually a big fan of Roberts gear, but this just does not work. The DAB is fine, as you'd expect, and the sound on the CD is surprisingly 3D considering the size of the cube, but the CD player malfunctions. I sent it back and got a replacement, because I was so sure Roberts would not make a duffer, but the replacement had exactly the same faults so in the end I got a refund. Problems included stopping in mid track and switching itself off! Also, the sound started to distort near the end of a CD-R over 60 minutes. Even the volume control is counter-intuitive: turn it down to turn it up! I mean..... Get it right, people!
