2.0 out of 5 stars Mine distorted badly on some music, 28 May 2010
This review is from: Roberts Classiclite DAB/FM RDS Digital Stereo Radio with up to 100 Hours Battery Life - Black (Electronics)
I was pleased at first; good sensitivity, nice sound, impressive bass. But! After listening for a few days, some types of music made it distort/vibrate horrendously, sounding like the very cheapest radio. The Rodrigo guitar concerto sounded like it was being played on a kazoo, and it wasn't because of a weak signal. I'd impulsively bought it at Argos, though it's cheaper on Amazon, and they happily took it back as defective and I paid the extra to buy a Pure One Elite after reading the review here. It's much better. No distortion. Much nicer controls - rotary knob to quickly go through channels in alphabetical order, rather than stabbing away at the "up" button on the Roberts, treble and bass controls plus rewind. But all I really cared about was sound - I used to test car radios professionally. Take home message: ignore Roberts' legacy as an elite product (by the way, they're owned by the Irish Glenn/Dimplex now) read the reviews --- it seems some of them are good but not all.
