This really is one of Roberts' very best products. It looks really good, with styling that could have stepped right out of the 1960s, including the flexible carry strap and the black grille with the Roberts logo. You really want to own this portable radio and it will attract a lot of comments.
This is a DAB/FM radio with Bluetooth functionality - out of the box the radio scans for DAB station availability - where I am it found 32 stations without the antenna being extended. Reception was good... I've got a few radios at home, all of them with varying reception capabilities - I'm glad to say that the Roberts does particularly well without needing the antenna to be extended.

Sound quality is good though not outstanding - probably a little better on speech than music where there is a slight lack of bite on the treble frequencies. The single speaker has a reasonably good bass response, if somewhat close to lower-mid than anything - For spoken radio it delivers good clarity and definition whereas music is only passably good.

Bluetooth functionality is excellent - pairing the radio with my Ipod and Iphone was easy and once done the pairing stays - all you have to do is switch the radio to Bluetooth mode and let your mobile device connect. A blue light on the radio comes on and it beeps twice when a connection is made. It's plain sailing from there - very good sound quality from up to several meters away. I stream a lot of BBC Iplayer material but also tested it using Spotify and ITunes to stream music, and TuneIn to stream a couple of internet radio stations.

The look of this radio takes me back to the late 60's and the Roberts radio in my Gran's house. But this beauty has the modern connectivity sought after. This is a mono-speaker radio, but is stereo with headphones. This DAB/DAB+ radio also has FM, as well as Bluetooth and USB - and the USB also charges devices. The displays are very clear, and there is no "fiddliness" with the controls. Well designed, this great sounding radio enhances the Roberts range of radios. The battery compartment takes the large "D" sized batteries, so it can also be used stand-alone.

As I don't have any DAB radios at home I thought the time has come to take the plunge to gain access to all those mystical radio stations that all my friends have access to but I don't. For me, real music ended around the end of the 70s so being able to access classic rock stations is musical heaven.

The main attraction of this radio that prompted me to order this product over the others was the retro look. I love anything retro so it wasn't a difficult decision. I think we've already established I'm stuck in a 70s timewarp. Obviously this is based on a 50s/60s look but that's good enough for me.

The best thing is with this kind of product is that it combines classy retro looks with modern technology. I may be stuck in the past musically but I love modern technology.

Sound quality is very good, being produced by a single speaker. For me a mono speaker (as opposed to two stereo speakers) is not a problem. With a device this size I've never found the stereo effect that good unless you're sat right in front of it. It also auto tunes very quickly. In fact I wasn't entirely sure that it made a full scan but it worked perfectly.

It addition, it has the ability to connect external devices such as an mp3 player or a memory stick via the USB input. So it pretty much covers all the bases. It has bluetooth too. Not something that I would probably use but you may find it useful.

Overall this is a quality product. Certainly not cheap, but then I'm a great believer in `you get what you pay for'. Definitely recommended.

I had a PURE elan prior to this and never got on with it. That was a pain to store stations and after only a short while the volume button started to cause problems.

This radio feels much better built than my old radio and the simple dial to control volume is much preferable to the push buttons on that Elan.

This radio really does look, feel and sound the business. I LOVE the way it looks. So Retro.

On first switch on it searched for digital stations and found radio 2 first, and when it came on, the first thing that struck me was the clarity of sound. It sounded like a top of the range stereo. Wow!
The instructions were really easy to understand too.
It is really easy to swap from the digital stations to FM so you can find your local radio station for local news and weather etc, then go back to the Digital stations and it is easy to store the stations you prefer to listen to. The FM station reception is very clear, too. Of course you have to extend the telescopic aerial for this. But its a well built aerial and extends higher than the one on my old PURE Elan.
I love the 'retro' look, the leather finish and the old fashioned dial knobs on the top.

It also has a socket for you to plug in your MP3 player so you can listen to that through the unit's excellent speakers.
I have ordered a cable so I can listen to my MP3 player and will report back when I have tried that.

In the meantime I am enjoying listening to a clear radio signal through a good quality radio set.
Very pleased so far.

EDIT
cable has arrived for connecting MP3 player to it.
So easy to set up and now I have the luxury of listening to all my favourite tracks via the radio set. Sounds lovely and clear. I am so pleased that I can also use the radio for this.
Prior to this I could only listen to my MP3 player via the headphones.

I am a little bit in love with this radio.
