The internal stereo speakers handle music with the aplomb dealing with everything from the delicate strings of orchestral performances to the heavy bass of a rock song without compromise or distortion.

Connecting it to our Wifi router was straight forward and it connected straight away. However I couldn't connect to any internet radio station but after checking the Roberts web site from my PC, there was a note saying that I needed to update the software. I was referred to the appropriate page of the instruction book and a few minutes later the radio was working from the internet.
You have to register on a site over the internet from your PC to set up internet favourites and again this was straight forward. My only small gripe is that the internet favourites are not shown in alphabetic order.
Both DAB and FM have been easy to use and to set up the presets.
The radio was fully operational and with its internet favourites loaded within an hour.
I haven't tried the features of playing music from my PC yet, I suspect I won't use this.
Sound quality is good for a radio.
I bought this after seeing it rated a Best Buy by Which. From a few hours of use it's excellent.
After a using this radio for some time I have found the battery life is poor, very poor if you use the internet radio with wireless connection. The instructions do say use mains power where possible but I use the radio primarliy in the bathroom where that isn't possible. The instructions also say that rechargeable batteries aren't as good as non rechargeable. I use rechargeable batteries because buying 6 D batteries every 1-2 weeks is expensive.
There is one thing I can add. Somebody suggested that you use a netbook to listen to the radio, I find that a netbook or laptop will not let you listen continuously to the radio unless you are using the netbook/laptop for something else as well i.e operating the keyboard or mouse. The radio is also cheaper and it is easier to change stations- with one touch of a button. All in all- a wonderful radio!
