A beautifully stylish and well made compact radio- it looks like it was made for our kitchen, the colour matches perfectly. Excellent rounded sound and good reception. The Bluetooth compatibility was one of the reasons we chose this radio and with a little fiddling it works great for streaming from your phone. Only downsides are all the controls are on the top so do attract dust but that is easily offset by retro charm. The display is itself a bit too retro, not very clear when scrolling through the channels ( We previously had a radio with an LCD display which showed the channels brilliantly) , I think the display is the only thing I would change, nonetheless once your favourite channels are all programmed in you can easily find what you want.
Radio arrived on the precise date and time we were advised, that was impressive. Lovely radio on which I can now get DAB+ and the colour matches my taste and surroundings. Improved sound too, all in all glad I bought direct from Roberts.
This radio is good but sometimes temperamental. The operation of the buttons and controls needs patience but you get there in the end. The battery life is terrible unless its on Eco setting. I was recharging them every couple of days until I made the switch. The sound is very good and so when its working well its great.
I love the sound, particularly on FM when it's playing in analogue and the digital fuss disappears. Sadly though it is very difficult to use as a Bluetooth speaker because both my laptop and my 'phone, of different makes, detect it as a keyboard. I'm hoping this issue will be resolved soon. I tried one suggestion but it didn't work completely.
It’s been a long time since I’ve purchased a radio and I’m delighted with this purchase. It’s small and compact but wonderfully retro whilst being also versatile. Looks and sounds great in the kitchen on DAB or FM, also a great Bluetooth option if I prefer to choose my own music. A couple of batteries and it’s working very nicely too in our Greenhouse were we have no electricity.
I've bought many Roberts radios over the years - build and sound quality are always excellent. I deducted a star for this model because the scrolling display option (which I always use) is a misnomer. It flashes and jumps and is not the restful background display I was expecting. I also think the presets arrangement is over fiddly.
Super little radio - does everything it says in a neat originally styled package
The Rambler is neat in appearance and small enough to be a bedside radio. You can pull the handle down over the front of the radio, then angle the radio forwards, settling it gently on the handle, which keeps it from falling flat on your bedside table. That way you can then see the screen whilst lying in bed, but the loudspeaker is not blocked and the sound can get out. The sound is that lovely mellow, slightly woolly sound that is typical of Roberts Radios - or the wood-cabineted ones anyway. I do have two criticisms - the ON/OFF function is done by a small digital push-bar switch rather than being incorporated in the left-hand volume control knob. This is goes against the retro style of this design (I know Roberts is using this layout several other designs - but I think it's the wrong way to arrange things). And the other criticism is that the dimmer switch for the LCD display is digital too - just three settings - why can't they have a little knob with a rheostat behind it? But those are minor matters; and this really is an excellent all-round radio, excellently manufactured. The facility to fit batteries, and leave them in whilst plugged in to the mains electricity is really clever: I have mine plugged in when it's by the bedside, but it's easy to disconnect it and use battery power when carrying the radio out of the room.
