Product Description

Product Description

ROBERTS introduces the Expression; a portable DAB / FM stereo radio that makes a style and eco statement. The design of the Expression evokes a wonderful combination of modern meets retro, retaining the stamp of quality synonomous with the brand. With curved ash-effect wooden edges that encase a metal grill both front and back, the radio with carry handle is completely portable and incorporates stereo speakers for high quality sound. The Expression is eco-friendly too, with a built-in battery charger and up to 100 hours of battery life. In keeping with the Expression's deco-inspired appearance, there are two neat rotary tuning and volume controls subtlety incorporated on its top, as well as a favourite station button so youre only ever one touch away from your favourite DJ or show.

This is a great looking radio that oozes quality with the modern wood and metal finish. It has a reassuring weight to it (especially when loaded with 4 D-cell batteries!) and is a good size for sitting on the kitchen worktop or on a shelf in the lounge. A lovely item to look at.

The built in battery charger is a real plus as it allows the radio to be easily picked up and moved around the house without any interruption to your programs and without any need to ever change the batteries provided you plug it in again to charge when you are finished. It is fitted with a very clear and easy to read green backlit screen displaying two lines of text. The station name is always displayed on the top line and the second line can show extra information such as radio text, genre, signal strength, broadcast quality, time/date etc. If the text is too long it scrolls across the screen one character at a time meaning it is not the smoothest to look at but perfectly readable.

The radio is very easy to operate with a dedicated volume dial and another dial to choose the station (push to select). A selection of the stations you listen to regularly can be added to the preset list making finding them much faster and one station can be assigned to the dedicated favourite button meaning it can be selected quickly with only one button press.

DAB reception is good and combined with the extendible and directional aerial I have no problems getting a signal in any part of my house. FM radio with RDS is provided as a backup and works equally as well.

Sound quality is very good especially for music and listening in quiet environments. The solid, heavy construction really helps here with no vibrations or distortion that you can find with thin plastic radios.

Lovely versatile radio, sounds good too. I bought it for use in my kitchen and my caravan, the internal battery charger and mp3 connection saves me having to take all the extra bits with me. It looks modern and at the same time classic, is robust and very easy to use. I would recommend to anyone as a versatile and good looking radio.

I bought this radio from Amazon on the 5th of December 2011 and also ordered some rechargeable batteries at the same time. The radio arrived first so I decided to just get some cheapie D batteries to tide me over until the rechargeables were delivered.

I duly got a pack of 4 Daewoo "Super Heavy Duty" batteries from Poundland (bargain!) and fitted them. For what it is the radio sounds fantastic - Roberts' sound engineers have got the balance between bass, treble and midrange just right to my ears with decent bass, clear vocals and a fairly detailed top.

A great many DAB stations really don't sound that good, despite what we've been told, and heavily compressed pop music can sound awful - harsh, shrill and fatiguing long term. The Roberts makes everything sound warm, smooth and inviting and reasonably propulsive.

It's not Hi-Fi, but then it's not meant to be, and I've been happy to listen to it every day for at least 30 minutes in the bath (where it goes surprisingly loud) and have bought quite a few CD's off the back of hearing tracks on the radio.

It is also very well designed with great attention to detail - from the battery compartment, to the dials, to the aerial, even to the little rubber feet on the underside to stop it slipping around. It has all the functions that anyone would reasonably use and none of the flashy ones that hardly anyone does. The fit and finish is also exemplary.

And now the £1 "Super Heavy Duty" batteries have finally died after over two months' use, which is an incredible performance considering my previous DAB radio went through 4 expensive Duracells in just one week! And that was just on standby, I never even played it!

I originally bought this radio more as a matching accessory for our new kitchen since my husband wanted one there and wasn't too worried about the quality! It has bettered our expectations in most ways.
It has the advantage of receiving both DAB and FM reception, as well as audio input which lets me play music from my mp3 player through it. I would have preferred to be able to play this music via the player's exisitng USB cable, rather than having to buy an audio cable specially for this.
I found the setting of favourite stations for both DAB and FM very easy. I also like the different content options for the neat display screen. I only see what I want rather than the array of often irrelevant information that is displayed by some radios with larger screens.
The sound quality is fine for my husband, who has pretty good hearing. However, it is not so good for me since I am hard of hearing and have a loss of higher frequency sounds. It would have been nice to be able to adjust bass/treble balance.
All in all though, we have taken to this radio both to listen to and to look at on our new beech worktops!

This radio is well worth the extra with excellent sound. I purchased this one for my uncle who is 95 and he can operate it with ease especially with the favourite button. I don't think the advert stated that you require 4 batteries for it though.
