4.0 out of 5 stars An elegant replacement for an old radio/CD/cassette player..., 21 Oct. 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Roberts MP-24 Home Audio System (Electronics)
We are really pleased with this radio/CD/SD player. It steals some of its retro style from the Old B&O hifi sets but that isn't a bad thing. There are some nice touches like a selection of colours for the lit display, and the way the front tilts forward to accept CDs.

It is pleasingly solid in design - far better than the Chronos by PURE (which you would expect from the different price tag!) and unlike most of the competition, has a series of graphic equaliser presets and adjustable treble and base (via the user preset). High quality, clean sound is provided by a hidden 3-way speaker system, and is fairly powerful considering the unit's size.

My one criticism of this item is that it has no record to SD function, unlike the newer Roberts radio set such as the Sound 41. This means I have either to by a Sound 41 as well, or continue recording programmes from the Listen Again web pages using Audacity and transfer them to SD or CD for playback on the Sound 41. For this reason, I'll give it 4 stars instead of 5. However, I'm sure Roberts will bring out a new version of this soon with recording facility.

One further niggle: the SD slot will only accept cards formatted in FAT (not FAT 32 or NTFS). This means that you are limited to using maximum 2GB cards and no SDHC compatibility.
