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.
