Solid piece of kit !

Bought to replace two Roberts DAB Gemini 49 Radios . My mother had one. She lives in a home and the radio got a real battering from being dropped on the floor. Our radio had an easier life but when the multiplexes were changed "Gold" was unavailable ! So it had to go ...Roberts help desk found the "Play" this being the nearest in the battery charging system! The pictures on the website didn't quite do it justice and it is reassuringly heavy. It now gets carried all over the house !!

Good little DAB radio

This is my second purchase of a Roberts Play DAB radio so we now have one in each bathroom. The sound level is adequate and the built-in charger is a great idea. The radio feels solid and the design is very pleasing. Given its size the radio has surprisingly good sound and has the facility for FM, DAB and DAB+ station reception on various presets. I use the radios with 2500 mAh rechargeable batteries which extends the time between recharges substantially.

Play radio

Excellent small radio, does exactly what I need it to do. My only caveat is that, in an ideal world, it would have a longer mains connector.

Good value for the money

I purchased the Roberts dab radio for my wife to replaced a much loved but worn Pure radio. Although she loves the Roberts and prefers the shape and colour she was slightly disappointed that it didn't have a rewind facility and did not show the information of the track playing (as her previous one did). The big bonus with the Roberts was that I didn't have to fork out for a battery pack as i did with the pure. The Pure works on normal or rechargeable batteries.

Simple to operatewith one button per function.

Great little portable DAB/FM radio for travelling. Unlike so many modern devices which are menu driven or require visual observation of the screen to tune, this radio can be operated simply by feel which I find perfect for use with an earpiece in bed when away from home. Retuning for different locations is very simple. Pity it lacks a "sleep" facility. However the ability to recharge modern high capacity NIMH batteries in situ makes up for when I fall asleep with the radio still on.

I now have 2 Roberts products and both are great quality. Clear sound, easy to use, excellent value for money. I have been looking for a small radio for the bathroom when I'm in the bath and it's perfect. I use rechargeable batteries. It does come with an electric plug, but for the bathroom its not safe. Now I can listen to the radio anywhere. It's small and lightweight, so win win. Seriously people , this is a top quality company. Thanks for making awesome products.

Best stylish low cost radio

We bought this, our third identical Roberts radio, because we like to have them all over the house. Once one's favourite radio channels are programmed it is easy to change from channel to channel instantly. We chose the white/grey model because it has a clean sleek style which fits with our decor. It is easily cleaned with a damp cloth. Recharging is simple with the charger supplied. It is inexpensive too!

Roberts digital radio

Radio looks fine build quality seems to be good its easy to set up and use and the sound is clear. Just one problem its not loud enough you have to have it on near maximum volume to get decent sound quality. OK if you want to use it in a library but not much good elsewhere
