Fantastic clear sound

The acoustics on this are phenomenal for both radio and Bluetooth. Very easy to set up and sync with home network, lots of extra bits and pieces I haven't even explored yet. It looks classy and retro at the same time. I've withheld 1star just because my eyesight is pants and the buttons on the front are quite hard to see to choose the presets, but I suppose you'd get used to the layout quite quickly. Brilliant piece of kit - highly recommended.

Practically a HiFi receiver+ - but not faultless

My old stand-alone HiFi DAB receiver is dying. These are scarcely marketed any longer. The Roberts makes an almost perfect - and very economical - replacement, adding Internet radio and network streaming too. Sonically - played via a quality amp and speakers - it's certainly up to HiFi standards. It's not quite without 'issues' however. Used as a media player it tends to choke on FLAC files - to skip, occasionally suddenly to shut down altogether in mid-flight. Not all that often, but often enough to be a nuisance. Of course, this may be due to network or PC issues but whatever, the impression gained is that the 94i is happier with MP3s. With FLAC's the buffer always shows full, perhaps it sometimes overflows? Significantly perhaps, in this regard it does no better on ethernet than on WiFi. Otherwise, highly recommended!

Fantastic sound and features

My Daughter bought me the 94i for christmas after using the older model 93i when we were on holiday, I loved the sound it produced and the dab radio, never stopped listening to plant rock, she could not find the 93i because the 94i has replaced it but I think the 94 is even better. superb features and looks fantastic. Love it.

This makes no sense

My newish Stream 94i now wakes with a message asking if I want to download an update. If I select 'Yes' it switches into Sleep mode (?) and goes silent for five minutes (not ideal if you want the news). Next morning - the same. I wish my old Pure Tempus hadn't died.

Too Complex

I bought this radio after listen to it in a well known department store. The sound quality was excellent and I was attracted to the podcast features. Unfortunately it is so complex that you need a degree in electronic to set it up and the 70 page instruction book is written by electronic experts for electronic experts and in no way would pass the Crystal English mark. Unfortunately it is now going on EBay unused for a fraction of the price.

Aerial has brpken

All my own fault but I retracted the aerial by pushing from top and I'm one person who should know better. I can't find any spares for sale on the Robertsradio site. Apart from that, the radio works on battery and can play from a memory stick. Not found out if I can record from radio to memory stick yet (Timed)

Great radio looks good and sounds good.

Very pleased with this product, does all I wanted and more, if you want to listen to an internet radio station that isn't listed on the database though it's a little tricky to add it, but other than that a terrific little radio.

Fine radio

Bought as a present for my wive. This Roberts 94i replaces a Audisse Shirudo i want to use in my workplace. I can compare the sound and ease of use of both radio's. The sound of the Roberts is better, but the Shirudo can play a lot harder whithout distortion. I love the interface of the 94i more because it is very straightforward. I've been using it as an internet radio (radio Swiss Classique) and as a DAB radio for whole days, playing loud and clear. Even no problems when connecting with bluetooth. I connected a Samsung S7, a Huawei P20 and a Samsung tab 5Se to the 94i whithout any issues. I hope we can use this Roberts radio for many years, because Brexit will make English gear to expensive for people in Europe. Very satisfied, just wanted a litlle bit more bass.

Not comaptible with bluetooth 5

The product looks good, is well made and sounds good. It suffers from occasional freezing which requires a hard reboot achieved by unplugging the unit. Now and then, the radio stream drops out (even R3), which requires a quick on/off, but sometimes a power down. However, despite these niggles (which I can just about live with), the 94i doesn't functional well on bluetooth. My laptop is bluetooth 5 (which is backward compatible), but the 94i does not function correctly. It connects, but then times out every 15mins - which the manual states is because the bluetooth connection is inactive. During the 15mins it remains connected, sound streams OK and the 94i can be used to select next/previous tracks. However, the volume control doesn't work when used from the bluetooth device. The volume knob on the 94i works, but when attempted from the laptop, the volume reading on the 94i is jerky and steadily moves downwards until the sound mutes. Having had numerous discussions with Roberts tech support, it was determined that this a problem with compatibility with bluetooth 5 and that they would work on a software patch to resolve the issue. This was months ago and despite further enquiries, the only reply I receive is that the issue 'is still being worked on'. If this is a problem affecting the product as a whole and not just my one, it seems strange that it is taking so long to resolve. If it is a problem affecting just my radio, I should have thought that Roberts would offer a replacement - if only to get mine back to determine if the fault is due to defective components, the manufacturing process or a software bug.
