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.

Problems with internet radio service

It seems that this radio is in breach of the trade descriptions act as “due to issues with internet radio provider” service cannot be guaranteed. If this can be resolved it should be all over their help pages and it is not. All I get is a messaged to remove power cable for a minute and then re connect, and it does not work! And then get exactly the same message. It worked fine until recently I should add.

Great little radio

Great sound for its size, huge range of music available from bluetooth, internet radio and the USB input in addition to the beeb and classic. Recommended

Cannot manually load url address as specified.

Purchased this to listen to Digitally Imported which I subscribe to. I checked first, by downloading the instruction manual to see if this was possible. It said no problem, you can manually load the url. However it is not possible then or now. Gutted that I have been duped. You cannot log into their server. Very poor service. On the plus side the radio sounds good even though you cannot receive what you want.

Fantastic radio

This is my 3rd Roberts radio so far. Initially I had the WM202, then the Stream 83i and now the Stream 94i. The current features are quite impressive especially when compared to the Stream 83i . I'm not sure if the recent change Wifi providers from vTuner is the reason, but the amount of buffering and "loading" problems I had with the 83i are a thing of the past. To be honest, it took me a little while to get used to the wood retro look, as I loved the glossy piano black surface. Now, I doubt I'd go back. Bluetooth connectivity is a great and much needed addition and works really well, however I would have preferred it to be both inbound as well as outbound (for Bluetooth headphones). It wasn't a biggie as I managed to bypass by using an external transmitter. Still, for a radio of this price & quality, it should have been a given. The display is very crisp and the new backlighting controls are a blessing. Finally after years of an almost "alien like" blue glow at night from the 83i, the 94i is a pleasure to have next to my bed. Sound quality is superb. The only negative aspect, and it could be purely personal, is the black cloth covering the speakers. While it looks and feels nice, it offers little or no protection to the speakers and has the potential of easily tearing and collecting dust. Not sure how easy it would be to replace. Overall, very very happy and would recommend.

Okay - bit dissapointing for the high price

I bought this a week ago and so far I'm a bit dissapointed to be honest. The system crashes quite regularly and re-boots itself, particualrly if you cycle quite far down the internet radio listings. it regualrly stalls completely when moving between internet radion and spotify connect for some reason - requiring a full unplugging power off and back on again. Another big issue is the UNDOK app is not vaialiable for Aplle iOS in Ireland for some reason - this is not mentioned anywhere. To be honest I am considering returning for a refund. The sound quality is impressive but for the price it is not good enough in functionality.

Idiotic USB-playback time out

I bought this radio because it would allow me to playback from a USB-memory. But in practice it does not. After 15 minutes the radio times out, unless you press a button first. I do not want to constantly be near the radio to look whether the 15 minutes are nearly up. And then, if you start playing back again, it turns out there is no bookmark set, so you have to manually go back to the spot where it turned itself off. The manufacturer says it does not time out if you are connected to the Internet, but what about using it outside and no Internet connection being available? And then there also is the silly batterysystem at the back blocking an important speaker...

Fantastic apart from dropped connection

Had this a few months now and it's even better than I hoped. The sound is awesome, you can use the preset mini equaliser or save your own. It's remarkably easy to set up and use. The undok app(more about that later) is actually easier for tuning in stations/ podcasts / etc than using the radio itself. When you turn it on it gently ups the volume from low to the level you want or left it at last. It's great quality and nicely understated in design. The buttons are nice to press and everything feels solid. Now the potentially bad bit. The undok app means you can turn the radio on/off change stations using your mobile phone, in theory. The reality is that it's normally hit and miss. To negate the misses I reboot the radio at least once a day and this seems to work, usually. Apart from that highly recommended and I hope I have this radio for many many years!

Excellent radio, versatile as an egg

I've had the Stream 94i nearly a year, & am pleased with it, I've used most features but mainly use Internet radio to listen to Italian talk radio, & DAB for UK stations. Excellent sound, compact & easy to setup & use. Since the change from WiFiRadioFrontier as supplier, WiFi stability is much improved, with almost no dropouts. I assumed the occasional annoying instability was a radio issue as per some other reviews, but don't now believe this was the case, and that it was probably a WifiRadioFrontier issue. I hope the ability to locate/store favourites via computer browser is reinstated soon. All in all, can recommend the 94i and am glad I got it.

The worst thing I have ever bought

It is the most unreliable product I have ever bought. It connects to wifi whenever it wants, you often cannot change radio stations or go back to the main menu - it just stays there loading. Now, all of a sudden, wifiradio frontier has changed servers and you cannot search or save stations on the it's completely useless. It is true that the sound quality, when it wants to work, is very very good. I just wish I could use it to listen to music...what a waste of £200!

Don’t bother

Difficult to tune instructions complicated Sound not great very expensive for very little radio

Great sound and lot of features, but it has flaws.

Lots of fantastic features and a great sound even if it struggles on top volume. The app is pretty awful looking but does its job. The radio also Ioses wifi connection and you have to unplug and restart to get it to work again. I also have a problem with usb playback as it shuts down into standby after 15 minutes. Lets se if the support is as good as the radio. But all in all I am very satisfied with it. When it works...

Purchased to replace my older Roberts internet Radio, but suffers from the same problems of time searching for world channels and cut offs. Disappointed as I thought that in the past six years Roberts would have sorted this out ( I have the fastest Virgin internet available). Another problem which should have been addressed is no AM channels, if you want to listen to air band etc you can't with this radio, what a missed opportunity.

Bob’s yer uncle

After owning 2 Pure DAB radios for several years I almost made the 'mistake' of replacing them with something from the same manufacturer when looking for something for our narrowboat. However, during my extensive research the Roberts Stream 94i crept into my field of vision and eventually I saw the light. Now, I not only listen to DAB but also Spotify (free version), Youtube, Internet radio (especially useful in poor DAB signal areas), Podcasts and more. We even have it connected to the TV which has improved the horribly tinny sound immensely. The depth and quality of the sound is simply amazing for a 'portable’ radio and we have it connected to our 12v system (through a regulated adaptor bought elsewhere) so it's on all day long in one mode or another. It's not an insignificant price for a ‘radio’ but boy does it pay for itself in quality and adaptability, well worth the money! The one minor point that I’d make is that you can currently only use the Spotify Connect feature if you have a ‘paid for’ Spotify account, even though Spotify made ‘Connect’ available to free users a year ago! This required manufacturers to issue a firmware update to enable the feature for ‘free’ users but as yet, Roberts have not made an update available. That is a bit slack given the time scale and relatively minor change needed. Please get this sorted ASAP Roberts!

Randomly Rebooting

At first I was impressed with how easy it was to connect to the internet and Bluetooth the sound is good for a portable radio (once you buy the optional battery) but for me the main problem is the radio keeps randomly rebooting itself which I why I will be reluctantly returning this radio
