5.0 out of 5 stars Excellente..., 10 Oct. 2010
By 
This review is from: Roberts Duologic DAB/FM RDS Digital Stereo Radio with Built-in Battery Charger - Black (Electronics)
Having done some digging around on the tinterweb and reading endless reviews of Pure, Sony, Goodmans and Roberts products, I eventually chose this one...

I liked the look of the radio from the start, the 2 speaker layout and centrally mounted controls gives it a nice symmetrical feeling and the controls are very easy to use.

The tuning and setup was very easy, I switched the unit on and it proceeded to tune itself to DAB stations.

The sound quality is excellent, in fact quite amazing from such small speakers.

Having an analogue style rotary volume control instead of a stepped button arrangement is also a nice touch allowing one to turn the volume down to a very low level if required.

The display is big and clear and shows all relevant information at the touch of a button.

I haven't used the "Favourite" function yet, but if you do have a particular favourite station, you can set it on this button and if someone else tunes to another station, your favourite is easily retrieved.

The lack of presets could be considered a disadvantage, however, if the radio is used as a portable for which it is designed, i.e. in a caravan around the country, then the station choice changes per area. Therefore, your presets may not work. This said, the tuning is very simple and easy to use, and it's always nice to see what stations you have available.

The built in battery charger is a touch of genius, never have to scrabble around for replacement batteries as, when installed, the rechargeables are kept topped up at all times ready for action.

Overall, a fantastic product, very well thought out. Excellently engineered & manufactured.

Well done Roberts, a top quality product.
