3.0 out of 5 stars Some negatives, 5 Dec. 2009
This review is from: Roberts MP53 Sound 53 CD/DAB/FM Digital Sound System with Dock for iPod-Black (discontinued by manufacturer) (Electronics)
While I agree with the sound quality of this unit being superb, there are several issues with this unit which I think are not highlighted enough in the other reviews.

Firstly the controls are terrible/non-existent. In fact almost every function has to be accessed from the remote control. You cannot even stop/pause on the unit itself.

I found using the unit in alarm/wake up mode in the mornings, I could not use the volume control on the unit itself. So most of the time I resorted to turning the unit off completely.

The backlight is not a problem and can be adjusted via the remote control, and the ipod docking/radio tuning is a smooth process.

For anyone who misses having controls on the unit - I would strongly advise checking out the lower model in the range (without the SD/recording facility).

Can you charge devices on this unit and does it accommodate an iPad.
