Top Customer Reviews
The thing I was most excited about was the Bluetooth element. I have to admit, the system I first received, although great, had a fault with the Bluetooth. I contacted Roberts to ask about this and I have to say, their customer service was second to none. The person I spoke to initially couldn't help me, but promised to get someone to call me back. 10 minutes later, a technician called Charlie rang me. He listened to my problem, and asked a few questions, before determining that it was not a user error but a fault with the unit. Despite me having received this via the Amazon Vine program, and him not being familiar with this, he immediately recognised the need to get a working unit out to me for review and contacted Head Office to arrange this. He also gave me details to use to send them the faulty unit back, free of charge to me, as he was eager to look at it to find out what the fault was - they had not had any reports of this fault previously.
I received a replacement unit which works perfectly.Read more ›
So why only 2 stars? Well, I'm a bit fussy about sound quality and I made the fundamental mistake of accepting someone elses judgement in this area when reading reviews. There's really only one way to assess sound quality and that's by using your own ears which of course I didn't do, relying on the judgements of the Amazon community. If I'd have listened to one in a shop, I would have walked on and found something else. The high ends are lacking clarity, and whilst there's plenty bottom it's just too boomy. Overall the sound quality is rather strange. It should be better as the speakers seem decent quality (the unit is pretty weighty) but the frequencies just don't seem to hang together. Hard to explain, but it's not a sound I particularly enjoy. I wondered if it was the input source so have tried a number of different devices (iPhone, iPad, iPod and even an Amazon Fire) but they're all the same. Similarly FM/DAB reception produces the same sound quality so you have what you have as it were. I note other reviewers have commented on the equaliser capability.Read more ›
On the plus side it is very good value for the money for all that it does, just felt let down by the sound quality, I guess this a subjective thing. It is certainly a handsome bit of kit and well made
Apart from being a decent radio, this can also function as a speaker for your mp3 player, phone or tablet either via an audio cable or Bluetooth. I had music streaming from Spotify on my tablet and not only was the sound very full and clear, but the radio's remote control even worked to control the tablet - the arrow buttons work as next/previous track buttons. Obviously some Bluetooth wizardry.
The unit itself feels very solid and heavy-duty, with two large stereo speakers and a bass speaker underneath. I have listened to a wide variety of music and all of them sound fine to me, without even resorting to the equaliser function. I know there is usually a focus on how loud music players go (and this one goes loud enough) but an equally valid test is how quiet it will play without losing parts of the sound. In this case it can be played at minimum volume without losing the top and bottom end. Very useful if you want to play it in bed without disturbing the neighbours or a sleeping partner.
Although this would not look out of place in a living room, it is perfect for the bedroom as it has a sleep function and an alarm, and that is where I have put this one, replacing my previous radio/alarm and the set of PC speakers I was using my mp3 player with.Read more ›
