4.0 out of 5 stars Stream 63i don't forget about "last.fm", 15 Jan 2011
This review is from: Roberts STREAM63i CD/DAB/FM Internet Sound System with iPod Dock and Record Facility (Electronics)
Roberts STREAM63I-BLACK Wi-Fi Internet/DAB/FM Radio with CD Player & iPod Dock in Black

I have had the Stream63i since the beginning of December when it was launched. I was going to buy the MP53i until by luck i discovered that the Stream63i would be released early December. I am glad i waited as this is a very good music player.

Its easy to set up, looks and feels great and covers virtually anyway you could wish to play music other than a 6" single and cassette tape.

Sound quality is good, not mind blowing but the optical link can connect to my surround system if required but i have not bothered yet. I would only do that to get a larger bass sound for say a party, otherwise no need. I did not find the built-in sound settings were up to much so just setup my own, however that is down to personal taste. I had purchsed it for use in a smaller room but have kept it in the lounge so far.

One feature that should not be overlooked is last.fm compatibility. I started a last.fm account last year because as a family we listen to music on i-pods, computers and laptops, last.fm gives you access to a list of saved favourite tracks over the internet. It is like your own personal radio station. It also gives you access to new music to match your tastes or similar to your favourite artists. If you like a track you can save as a favourite, if not it will not play it again. The full account cost 3 per month however after a month or two we stopped using it. With the addition of the Stream63i, with built in last.fm compatibility we are more than getting our monies worth. Probably 50% of the music we listen to is last.fm sourced. I just think this may be a feature that could be overlooked by some users. Well worth giving a try, there is a free trial offer to get you started.

The only issue i have had so far is the remote can be temperamental as times.

Overall 4.5/5 but as you can only give whole numbers it will have to be a 4/5. Well done to Roberts, its an added bonus to support a UK company.

Great review which I found very helpful, however I wanted to know how it records, does it record to USB plug in? or has it a drive or something built in? Thanks

Your review sound like a plug for last.fm, not a review of the product itself !
