DAB/DAB+/FM Alarm Clock Radio
The Ortus 1 alarm clock radio is packed with fantastic features to make your mornings easy. With DAB/DAB+/FM radio and 2 alarm timers, you can wake to a buzzer or your favourite radio station. Plus, the handy any-button snooze function and bedtime listening gradual fade help you to both wake up and drift off too.
FREE DELIVERY. Please allow 3-5 working days for delivery of your order.
Built-in DAB/DAB+/FM means you can listen to your favourite radio stations, and with 6 station presets you can access them with the touch of a few buttons.
2 Alarm Timers
Choose whether you wake to DAB, FM radio or buzzer.
You can also set the alarm duration - to 30, 60, 90, or 120 minutes - so your DAB or FM radio alarm will keep playing for as long as you'd like.
Hit the snooze button…
The adjustable sleep, snooze and nap timer, plus the any-button snooze mean that you can put the morning on hold and catch an extra forty winks…
Another great feature is the bedtime listening function - the audio fades down as you reach the end of the sleep timer you've set, so it doesn't interrupt you when you're drifting off.
The Ortus 1 also has a night-time display. The digital clock display appears brightly at the touch of a button then fades back to black after 10 seconds.
When in standby, it has a large clock display with the time.
You can also adjust the display dimmer at night so that you're not disturbed.
Play music from your smartphone
An auxiliary input socket means you can play music from your smartphone, so the Ortus 1 can double up as a speaker for your playlists too.
You can also listen to the radio without disturbing anyone, using the headphone socket.

Have been really happy with this. But about a year after I purchased the radio it has just gone dead
God for want I wanted it for
Despite the fact that it's a great device I had to return mine because it behaved really weird - alarm going off at random times. So got a replacement and it's just the same - one alarm clock set for 8 this morning, it went off at 7! And then at 8! It's basically a flawed system. If you can't trust an alarm what use is it??
DAB reception is very poor. This radio was purchased to replace another brand DAB radio costing a third of the price which in the same location and weather conditions had vastly better reception. This radio looks nice, but don't waste your money.
Roberts dab clock radio doesn’t take up much room on bedside cabinet. Sound pretty good for its size. A bit difficult to set up initially, and have to refer to instructions every time I want to change the alarm time, I’m sure this will get easier the more I it!
As T’s@C’s do not allow specified returns DAB sound quality cannot be judged without setting up the wireless reception thus using it So am quite disappointed. Not a basic model but of reputable make. ‘Punching above its weight’ does it no favours unfortunately. Instore purchase
I bought the Ortus 1's for my two children who need a nudge to get up in the morning & really glad I did - great radios, simple instructions but full of functionality. DAB radio works well & they love the fact it shows what song is playing, & I love that the alarm can be set for weekdays only! All in all a good purchase.
Love this item wakes me up every morning
I'm a Roberts fan. Solid and reliable products, which produce a clear sound. The Ortus 1 is a neat and good-looking product. I didn't need the extra functions of the Ortus 2 & 3. I would have given it 5 stars had the operation been simpler. It's difficult to find the sleep/timer buttons in the darkness of the night. Please could the next Ortus have a facility to pre-set a sleep period, which can be operated with a one-touch button?
The buttons are too close together on the top, if using at night, in bed, in the dark! too easy to press the wrong buttons
Alarm feature is very complicated and I could not set the time as it did not do as instruction said Will try again but if I can’t get it to work even after factory reset I will have to return to shop (interesting they have a section on things that might not work first time) It is smaller than pictures give impression
I bought this for my wife to replace existing Roberts radio. Great compact design but not very easy to use particularly if wanting to change settings in a hurry I.e. alarm. A simple switch would be better in many cases rather than going through various menus. Price reasonable as is quality of sound.
Can set different times for weekdays and weekends - perfect for a later start without having to re-set or change the alarm time.
Fine as an alarm, but second-rate as a radio. The sound quality is compromised by the small size of the speaker
Very neat unit. Happy with sound quality. Useful to be able to pre set separate weekday and weekend alarms. Happy to recommend.
