Great device, one flaw.,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Roberts CHRONODAB DAB/FM Digital Alarm Clock Radio with Instant Time Set (Electronics)
As a long time Sony customer when it comes to clock radios I was disappointed by their offerings. Too many buttons, cheap build quality, etc. I'd recently bought the beautiful 'Expression' model for use in the kitchen which aside from being pretty has great sound. Hence looking at Roberts for a clock radio.
I went for this model based on price, functionality and appearance.
They are a little larger that I thought they were going to be (I bought two), but once in situ they are not obtrusive. The clock face is very large but the brightness can be taken right down. It is simple to use and the set-up was simple. The sound isn't quite as good as the Expression but is still very good and light years ahead of the old FM Sony clock radios they replaced. Having two alarms that can be set for different days is more useful than it sounds !
I'm very happy with the purchase so why only 4*. When the alarm goes off the volume slowly increases, playing the last listened to radio station, however it just keeps increasing to the max volume. If you wake up early and go downstairs then the whole house gets woken up when it goes off and you're not there. You should be able to set the max volume.
