Great Internet Radio

This Stream 104 was a Christmas gift and it's brilliant. All the stations I need and it plays my music collection from a media server wherever I happen to be. Navigating podcasts etc., has it's limitations but I find it easier than the other players I use, the iPhone app helps here, (best not to lose the comprehensive manual). The only disappointment is that it cannot recharge the rechargeable batteries I use, it seems odd that I can listen to music over the internet from the far reaches of the globe, but am still locked into swapping batteries as I had to before we even had Radio 1! Still, it is a joy to have and use.

A quality product - as expected from Roberts

I really wanted one of the retro-styled Roberts internet radios as I have one of the originals, but wasn't willing to pay the steep premium simply for the 'style'. I bought the Stream 104 for the Roberts name and because I was impressed by the build quality of a friend's 104. For quality, features and sound quality the radio doesn't disappoint, it is however let down somewhat by it's short, slow scrolling display and some rather non intuitive menu selection functionality - particularly when saving presets. I am also disappointed that for this price it isn't supplied with a rechargeable battery pack of some sort, if only the ability to recharge 'normal' rechargeable cells. CAVEAT: I brought the radio in the UK and then returned home to France. During the journey I mislaid the manual which I had read only once, so all my setup/listening/navigation has been done using instinct and memory. Good test of how intuitive it is, but apologies to Roberts if I've missed a trick. My first niggle is that a replacement manual isn't easily downloadable from the main Roberts website/support section as far as I can see! Here's a summary of my 'Pro's' and 'Con's' after a weeks generally pleasurable use: PRO's: 1) Well built - quality plastic and aesthetically well thought through 2) Attractive display - good size buttons with nice positive action 3) Good initial setup 'wizard' gets you up and running quickly 4) Pretty good sound quality for such a small enclosure 5) Good range of inputs and outputs, and remote control app/ streaming capability is a bonus CON's: 1) The screen display is so short that trying to choose an item can be difficult - BBC podcasts particularly because they all start with the name of the programme (so you can't see the podcast date/time) 2) Saving presets is really non-intuitive - pressing what looks like it should be the save option simply kicks you back up a level - got there eventually but not sure how. 3) Saving 'favourites' is a mystery - (the difference between favourites and presets?)and what it would be really useful for i.e.saving podcasts - it doesn't seem to be able to do at all. 4) Finding podcasts is a pain, and having to re-navigate each time for repeated podcasts is a real nuisance. 5) Lack of battery recharge facility - for this price I would have expected something - at minimum the ability to buy an accessory Li-on rechargeable pack SUMMARY: Well built radio with the level of quality one might expect from Roberts. Extended features such as podcasts/favourites etc have some niggles. Great if all you want is an internet radio, but for just that it starts to look a little expensive. CONCLUSION: Despite it's shortcomings, I'm still a fan and would buy again tomorrow!
