Very poor

I bought this radio over a year ago and have found it not to be up to the standard required. The worst thing is that it has just stopped working, though I am getting the time still! The power cable has always been very loose and one small knock whilst turning on or adjusting loses power. The buttons are also very samll and not raised very much so using at night and in low light is problematical. I intend to buy a new radio today, but not a Roberts.

New Alarm needed

We bought this clock radio recently to replace an old Roberts radio that had died and gone elsewhere. Having given numerous years of news, entertainment and wake up calls it was only right to stick with 'a tried and tested Company.' We are glad We did and recommend the ORTUS 1

Great little radio

Had it about a month now. I found the instructions very easy to follow (thankfully written on English, not translated abroad). Sound quality what I would expect from small speakers. It sends me to sleep at night and wakes me up in the morning. What else could I wish for?

Nice and compact easy to use

I bought this for my Dad to have in his bedroom, it’s a nice size for a small bedside table. Easy to use and great quality. Dad was really plesed. It looks great and is an excellent buy for the price.

Really good

Glad I bought this. It's a reliable little radio alarm. Only issue is that the power lead is sensitive so it's excellent as long as it isn't knocked or moved.

Slim, modern and provides a great sound. The key thing I was looking for was the ability for different alarms during weekend to the week days. This works a treat!

Very fiddly and complex controls. Poor sound quality. Really not what I'd expect from Roberts, which we've been using for years and have several in the house.

pretty perfect

I wanted a slim DAB radio - not as easy to find as you'd think. I also wanted to be able to reduce the light level of the numbers - this has 3 brightness levels (you can turn the display off too). It holds only 3 DAB preset channels (but this is fine for me). It looks good & the price is good too. I would recommend the ORTUS 1 highly.

Great little radio. Needed to replace my Roberts 25+ year old alarm / radio when the volume control decided not to work! Great feature of the Ortus is ability to have different volume settings for going to sleep and waking in the morning.

Ortus 1

Needed new radio and DAB preferred without add-ons. Roberts was always my brand. Ortus 1 was neat and had all the features I needed: alarm, full clock dim and very compact. Trade off is 'single speaker' but absolutely perfect to wake up to. Quality buy and great pedigree.
