Roberts sports radio.

I am delighted with my new Roberts Sports Radio. It replaces one that I have used for years (and still use) but it is much improved. Longer battery life, taking 2 AA batteries instead of 2AAA. These are housed in an easier to access compartment. The controls are easier to use and more conveniently sited. The lock device is easy and secure. All the stations I regularly use can be fixed. Ideal!

One major annoyance.

Apart from the short battery life, a major irritation is that there is no audible warning of low battery: it's abruptly full power to no power. My old Sony Walkman FM would fade gradually allowing me to get to my spare batteries and choose a moment to change them (eg at the end of an interview). My iPod Nano has a "Low Battery" spoken message, so something similar could presumably be implemented on this. I wanted removable batteries because I want to be able to listen all day & evening. Using FM doesn't seem to use any less power.

Not intuitive to operate control knob too fiddly.

Potentially good let down by controls

A replacement for an existing Roberts Sports SDAB5

I already have a Roberts Sports SDAB5 which is about 4 or 5 years old, so this new purchase is a replacement for the existing one. Plus I will set it up for DAB reception rather than VHS. My old radio has been superb. Tuning on VHS is very easy, yet to try DAB tuning. One problem is the radio 'eats up batteries', buy cheap ones and you get what you paid for a few hours use at most. You must use top quality batteries and will probably get 8 - 10 hours of constant use at most.

Small & lightweight sports radio

Bought this as a present for my Husband for Christmas. He is over the moon with it, as he is sport mad! Its small & lightweight so easily fits into pockets. He says he can get all the channels he needs to listen to sports commentry/ debates etc. So he doesnt miss anything when he walks the dog or comes shopping with me. Best present i think i have ever bought him!

Great quality

My first Sport DAB 5 was purchased exactly 5 years ago and has been a constant source of enjoyment for every single day, work and leisure. Unfortunately, I lost it, but it did have a hard life, especially at work as I work in construction. The volume rocker switch, the tuning selector and the 3.5 jack were all on the blink and the display was starting to fade. R.I.P. I just bought a new one, and if I get 5 years service again, I will not be disappointed. If you buy one, invest in a charger and good quality rechargeable batteries, and dump the old fashioned ear phones for some decent earbud types and you won't go wrong.

Just what i wanted

Excellent radio. Just at what my husband needed to aid listening with some hearing loss. Earphones could be better.
