5.0 out of 5 stars Roberts Ecologic-6 My own little luxury!, 25 Feb 2009
This review is from: Roberts Radios Ecologic Digital Clock Radio with Dual Mode Backlight Dimmer (Electronics)
The first thing I noticed when I got the Eco 6 out of the box was that this clock radio was a little smaller than I had imagined it would be, not that it matters much, it stands about 4 " tall, rising to about 5 " at the back. The clock looks great when lit up, and looks real quality. It adjusted the time immediately that I connected the power, magic! and whilst the radio is still turned off the top display shows the time and date. The Dab radio scans automatically for channels, and it finds them easily, even though it is using just a small wire aerial that hangs from the rear. Also the Fm radio is just as easy to set up, provided you follow the instructions, and you can preset ten stations on both bands. The sound quality is excellent for such a small machine and I was really surprised at how good all the old un`s sounded on london gold............ I expected it to sound more like the rubbish sound we are used to from the Medium wave band! But even these old songs sound vibrant and exciting. One minus point that I noticed was that, unless you can remember the exact positions of the buttons from memory, you will not be able to operate the Eco 6 without your light on, as the buttons are not illuminated! Fortunately I could (just) remember, and was able to set the sleep function, by touch. The Eco 6 boasts a humane wake up on the alarm, but I was expecting the first wave of alarm beeps to be much lower than they were, and it could definitely wake up anyone else in the bedroom, who was not expecting an alarm, I was a little disappointed about that. The dimmer can be adjusted for the radio off position and also separately for the radio on position, I think that all of the adjustments are useful. There is an auxiliary input at the rear, for an mp3 player etc. The power is supplied from a small transformer built into the plug, this stays remarkably cool. The alarm can be set to wake you to either Dab Fm or beeper. There are lots of different display settings for the Dab radio, but to be honest, I will not be bothered to change it from the scrolling setting that displays song name etc. (if broadcast) All in all I am well pleased with this purchase, the radio sounds great, the reception is very good, and the Ecologic 6 looks real class. Highly Recommended.
