Nearly perfect bedside radio \ alarm \ CD,
This review is from: Roberts Sound38 CD/DAB/FM Stereo Clock Radio with CD Bookmark (Electronics)
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.
