3.0 out of 5 stars Mono!!!, 10 Nov 2013
This review is from: Roberts Revival Blutune DAB/DAB+/FM/Bluetooth RDS Digital Radio (Electronics)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I'm really in two minds about this radio. My main gripe is that a product that uses the latest technology to provide the best and clearest radio reception only has a mono speaker. This is surely taking the retro feel too far. They might as well have had a medium and long wave tuner. OK, you can attach headphones but this defeats the object of a small radio. You need to be able to have it on, for example, in the kitchen when doing dinner which is difficult when you are attached to it through headphones.

Which is a shame because in all other respects it is excellent. The sound quality, though mono, is superb and the design is appealing. Setup is a doddle as it autotunes within seconds. Changing channels merely involves turning a knob and pressing it when it shows the correct station. This is much swifter than on the Sony DAB radio I have in the bedroom (which by the way was half the price but has two speakers). It can be used on mains or battery. The Bluetooth connection is easy to set up and worked first time. A good idea as it acts as a speaker for any Bluetooth enabled MP3 device, albeit in mono again.

Altogether this would be an excellent product if only for the addition of an extra speaker and stereo sound. Not too much to ask in this day and age surely.
