Not quite loud enough, but I found a solution
on 1 March 2017
This is a neat little product, and does what it says on the tin. Solid construction, it seems, as one would expect from a Roberts product. Strange thing is, though, that used in combo with my Roberts DAB radio, the volume isn't quite high enough - even with the radio set at maximum. I spend more of the night straining to hear what I'm trying to listen to than drifting blissfully off to sleep. Which obviously kind of negates the desired effect. However, last night, I had a flash of inspiration. I have a little Fiio amplifier which I use when out and about with my iPod Classic to overcome the volume restrictions on that particular device while enduring the ambient cacophony that is London. Bingo. Plugged that in-line between the radio and the speaker... YAY!
All this is the fault of the radio itself, probably (Roberts iDream), the maximum volume just isn't sufficient through the headphone jack. Never had to worry about this until I moved in with the partner last year. Ho hum.
