4.0 out of 5 stars great Christmas present, 26 Oct 2011
This review is from: Roberts Stream202 WM202BK DAB/FM/WIFI Internet Radio - Black (Electronics)
I got this radio for Christmas so have had it 10 months now. I use it every day in the kitchen, mostly listening to radio 4 speech radio. I find the sound quality to be excellent, using mostly DAB. My boyfriend uses the wi-fi internet radio to listen to French radio and he finds the sound quality good with no connection problems. The build quality is excellent and I have ran it on batteries in the garden and it has coped well with this. I have had no problem syncing the radio to v-tuner to manage my internet radio stations. I would not hesitate to recommend this radio for listening to DAB or internet radio. I have a few niggles though, which may or may not bother you too. All of the controls and display are on the top of the radio and since the only place in my kitchen near a socket with any free space is on top of my fridge freezer I have to tip the radio to see the menu and controls, but I have found I can do simple things such as adjust the volume, switch it on etc without looking as the controls are quite tactile. I find the menu system irritating. Even as a reasonably techy person, remembering where my preset favourites and podcasts are on the labyrinthine menu is a pain and it can take several minutes of scrolling to locate what I am looking for, which means I rarely use the podcast feature. In addition, it sometimes loses the wi-fi signal when I'm listening to podcasts, which may be down to my dodgy internet connection which does drop out from time to time. However, the radio cannot remember where I was in the podcast when the connection resumes, so it restarts at the beginning of the programme. On the whole this is a very good radio and I expect it will last a long time and the irritation are only minor.
