FIRST IMPRESSIONS - on day one of my ownership of a Roberts Sovereign in Balmoral Blue. Fit and finish of the radio is very good, it looks handsome and the inside of the cabinet is fitted with a high quality plastic moulding which includes the battery compartment. A sleek adaptor/ mains lead with 1.5 metres of cable is provided which looks the same as that bundled with the Roberts Expression. This attaches at the side of the unit, a pity as it cannot be hidden from view. The unit has 2 Watts output, not 1 Watt as described by some retailers. This radio should hold no fears for a new DAB user, extend the ariel, switch it on and after a thirty second scan you are away.

RECEPTION on mains and battery is exceptional, the very best I have encountered having owned many Roberts and Pure radios. The ariel can remain retracted unless you select FM or are listening to a neighbouring region's programmes and my set can clearly receive a station transmitting over fifty miles away.FM reception is strong and clear but the radio favours strong clean signals as opposed to ultimate sensitivity, again very usable and I was able to listen to FM programmes interference free in my poor reception area.

SOUND QUALITY - Is good for music and about perfect for the spoken word. Classic FM, Jazz FM and Radio 2 sound great,good smooth, clear and enjoyable.Compared to a Pure 1XT and Roberts Expression the sound has more weight with the added bass and is superior, in my opinion, but the Sovereign does not have the dynamic range or punch of say a Pure Evoke 3 or Pure Evoke 2S. What it does have is the usual smooth, easy going and listenable tone which Roberts fans love and this is underscored by a nice decent sized speaker which provides some welcome bass.

It has a very smooth sound, clear with a good bass and it looks very good too. I would recommend it to anyone.

A real heirloom classic. Beautifully made and very tactile. Be warned, it is heavy.
