Roberts Revival RD60 FM/DAB/DAB+ Digital Radio
Classic. With a modern twist.
The Roberts Revival RD60 is a digital radio with nostalgic 1950s styling. Complete with state-of-the-art DAB technology and the freedom that portability brings, you’ll be able to tune into your favourite radio stations at home or in the garden. What's more, a stereo line-in socket enables playback for your iPod or MP3. This means that the RD60 can also double up as a speaker for your playlists too.
With the auto tune feature, it’s a doddle to find a preferred station across the FM/DAB wavebands; simply use the rotary tuning to find just what you want to hear. Any particular favourites can be saved down as presets for a quick tune-in next time round. An easy to read 16 x 2 character LCD display and amber backlight will keep you on track with the station and show.
With 120 hours battery life, the RD60 is more portable than ever. A colour coordinated carry handle enables a quick pick-up and release. And if you want to take your music elsewhere to listen in peace, there’s even a handy socket so you can listen with your own headphones without disturbing – or being disturbed – by others.

The original Roberts Revival was designed in the 1950s, yet years on it remains a British design icon as well as the heart of the company.
Its iconic design can be traced through the rich seam of the company’s history, from its early inception in 1956 to the Revival RD60, Revival Mini and iStream 2 Smart Radio today.
The Revival is now available in many variants of style and technology, and no-matter the colour or finish, each individual wooden cabinet radio is lovingly hand-finished with gold-plated fittings.
Every component, from the aerial to the loudspeaker concealed behind the stylish grille, has been carefully sourced to ensure the best possible sound quality. Look inside the cabinet by opening up the rear panel to see the original wooden cabinet housed within an attractive exterior.

I had a similar radio some 50 years ago and it went on, almost, forever. This model has the same styling but with numerous digital upgrades. Easy to read station and track data on the digital display. Auto tuning is a cinch and it's easy to store favourite channels. There's no Bluetooth or streaming on this model, but there are sockets to connect iPod/MP3 player, so the radio acts as a speaker. It's truly portable; sturdy and well built and with mains or D battery power (seemingly endless hours from the batteries) it can be used indoors or outside.
As for sound, I'm very happy with the quality. Good volume for play in a noisy household. My main use is for radio talk and audible playback. It excels at both. For music, it's good, with rich deep bass, less distinct treble, but for background listening, I'm very happy. There's a headphone socket and music sound through decent cans is excellent. Should last for years, robust build and well finished. I really like this set.
There have been reports of faulty on/off buttons, and if out of warranty, the repair bill including postage is over 50 quid. Because mine stopped turning on I also thought it must be the on/off button -
Sent it to Roberts and 50 quid later they sent it back.
Funny thing was the engineers report stated that he replaced a faulty adaptor.
These adaptors cost about a fiver, so if yours doesn’t turn on, can I suggest that you put in some suitable batteries and check it first before assuming it’s the on/off button that’s the culprit.
If it works with batteries then just buy an adaptor with exactly the same input/output ratings (you can find these on the original) and you should be good to go.
One wonders why Roberts don’t suggest this? A cynical person may think that getting a 3rd of the original cost of the radio in their coffers for a 5 quid adaptor makes their bottom line look pretty healthy.
It looks superb on my desk next to my vintage camera lamp & lava lamp etc.
