Bought Stream 94i yesterday from local John Lewis. At £230* it's expensive but on paper it has all the features I wanted and I hoped for a robust radio with good sound quality and performance. (*It's a portable - compact size with a handle - but to use it as such you need the 'optional' rechargeable battery pack that takes it up to this price! … and it just screws onto the back covering much of the sub-woofer. I knew that before purchase so it's appearance/location lives up to my low expectation in that regard). I have just fired it up and I'm immediately disappointed. I may well take it back (what a pain) but it is 1. underperforming in one respect and 2. probably faulty in another respect. As for no. 2 (faulty), it won't pair with anything on Bluetooth .. in fact doesn't recognise any products (e.g. my Android phone or PC. My phone pairs effortlessly with other things (audio systems, my car, etc). My phone discovered it and says that it is connected to Stream 94i but in the Roberts radio the blue Bluetooth symbol just keeps flashing which, as I understand it, denotes searching for Bluetooth signals. It does not list any products found. As far as I can see I'm doing all the right things to set it up. I will try and try again but if no luck, back it'll have to go (for a refund, not a replacement). And problem 1.: Whilst OK on DAB it is hopeless in FM. Must be very insensitive. Even on the 'find weak stations' setting it doesn't find much and all are noisy due to weakness of signal capture. On the stronger signals only setting it only found one station and that was noisy. I have a number or FM radios/receivers from 'cheapo' £20 small portable to micro and full size hifi. All fine and clear on nearer stations inc all BBC national stations - 1, 2, 3, 4, etc.. I do have a simple Roberts Solar DAB portable and bedside clock radio working with their telescopic aerials. Both fine (and a lot cheaper). This model ….
Battery Pack & Stream 94i i purchased the stream 94i and a rechargable battery bp93i to become portable , i followed the instructions to fit the battery and after carefully putting in the longer screw at the top of the battery to fit it on the back of the radio it snapped off so half the thread is stuck in the radio and there is nothing to hold the battery on the back apart from the 2 smaller screws , bad design or faulty cast screw ? , why not make the radio case a bit bigger and have the battery slot inside with a cover over it , like a digital camera battery but bigger , so the battery can be purchased and changed as and when needed, the shop i got the radio from dont want to help as i fitted the battery so its my fault , i have been involved with all kinds of electronics all my life and never had this sort of problem , at the cost of almost £250 for a radio and battery i would have expected a lot better , as for the radio it has a poor sound and poor sensitivity dab is garbled and fm is hissy , so its a waste of money i cant get a refund as the screw snapped off , time to do a bit more research and buy a better radio.
The 94i will not play DAB radio or connect to the UNDOK app whilst the battery is charging. Technical support are fully aware of this issue and said nothing can be done. Sound quality of radio is good when working.
I have just purchased the Robert's Radio Stream 94i from John Lewis. This is my first time owning a Robert's radio and I thought I would get a premium radio that suited my needs. I must admit there are some build issues that are quite unexpected baring in mind the product is not far short of £200. The "selection" jog wheel is a big issue. It has indents in and as you turn the wheel to select an input, a station name, a track or anything that the wheel is designed to be used for, it "skips" items that are not "on dent". You then find yourself trying to find a spot inbetween the indents to select the item that has been "skipped". Trying to press select on it once you have highlighted it is then a little like the krypton factor! For a premium design, the long row of buttons along the top of the speaker are not aligned correctly. Of course it is not obvious to all, but again for a premium product such as this, I would expect a certain amount of time and care to be taken over details. The "my Music" feature I have been looking forward to. I have a large collection of regular FLAC audio files (44.1/16 bit) as well as "high resolution" FLAC files in varying sample rates and in varying bit depths on my music server. The first issue is that the 94i does not "see" files above 44.1 at 16bit, this is a huge dissapointment. Secondly, the files it does see, there is no "search" facilty. This is crazy! I have artists from a through z and albums of the same. Scroling through with the annoying selector wheel takes forever and after a while of "turning" you feel like you might break it as it all has a "cheap" feel to it. The supplied remote control is a little bonus, however, the buttons are very very stiff. So I end up resorting to the controls on the unit itself for ease and convenience. Then there is the "Undock" app. This is great, but not without downfalls too. For instance, you cannot set alarms and seraching internet staions are tricky. It would appear "going back" in the folder tree once you have found a country or genre has been forgotten about. I find I have to make numerous random button presses and restarts of the app to get back to the root/starting folder. I am sure Roberts' will deny "Undock" being their property and so I should contact "Undock", however I am telling you perspective buyers directly. The alarm features require attention too. The "fade in time", users should have a facilty to adjust the fade in speed or to disable it if they wish. Another huge dissapointment is not being able to have something from "my Music" on the media server be used for my alarm, be it a playlist, a track or an album. Personally I am not a fan of "morning radio" and sometimes I have to be up before some have gone to bed and the selections at that time are not what I wish to be woken by. However, waking to my favorite album, song or playlist from my media server would be the ideal option, but Roberts have chosen not to allow a user this choice. I feel that Roberts need to provide a firmware update to resolve a lot of these issues. Yes, the build issues I will have to live with but the other things can be resolved by a firmware update. Selector wheel - Sensitivity adjustment Alarm - Fade in time & Diasble fade in feature. Add feature to use your own media as an alarm (album, song or playlist) My Music - Flac - Update to enable playback of High Resolution audio fies up 196k/24 bit If Roberts have any control or contact with Undock, provision of alarm settings are required. The over all sound of the unit is acceptable. The abilty to adjust the EQ to your own room and tastes is a huge plus and once the issues within the onboard firmware/software are resolved, I would then feel like I am closer to a £200 piece of equipment. As it stands, I am feeling very let down by a brand that has a very reputable name.
Sound quality is very good, as are features but.... the radio is prone to 'crashing' when using to play media files from a DLNA server. A Pure One Flow copes with the same files etc without problems. Also, if you are 'too quick' on the buttons it will crash. Having the on/off button to 'kill' the alarm is silly. I often wake up early, turn on the radio, and doze off. The alarm goes off and pressing the on/off button kills the radio!
A very good radio, but there is no indication that a separate battery is needed in any of the advertisements which have I seen. I only found that out after trawling the instruction manual, which was then too late. The radio is already quite heavy enough and I object to having to buy an extra attachment, which will make it even heavier to lug down the garden. I have always bought Roberts radios and it was disappointing to find that the marketing of this one was misleading.
Had mine for 4wks, used in my loft office. Very nicely balanced sound is my favourite feature, this replaced a NAD amp and wharfdale speakers and I don’t miss them. Very user friendly, looks great, versatile, doesn’t go loud but as expected for size. Very good value 9/10 overall.
This is my choice it’s a great sounding radio it has a built in subwoofer so the sound is excellent in all modes it plays Spotify and is great for internet stations from any we’re in the world build quality is faultless even has a remote this is by far the best radio I have owned easy to set up can’t get any easier
I have not used this product myself as it was a present for my daughter so I cannot comment on or rate how it preforms. However it would appear that my daughter has found it extremely difficult if not impossible to register the product in her name even though she is the owner and user of it. Roberts need to get this sorted as I am sure that this cannot be the first time their products have been bought as a present for someone else.
I gave a 93i ... great radio and have just bought a bolt on lithium battery to make it truly portable. The remote us useless and eats batteries in no time but I use my phone instead. I hope the 94i is better and I'm pleased to see it now has built in bluetooth has but perhaps the 95i will go the extra mile and include a battery
Radio came very quickly and was easy to set up. I had a Roberts radio before and got another one because they are longer lasting than the cheaper ones and have better sound quality. The bluetooth and Spotify options both work well. Only improvement I could suggest is that the prset buttons are less clear than the old 83i but we've soon got used to that.
I bought my new Roberts Stream 94i very soon after it became available. It is my 6th Roberts Radio. I purchased this model to replace my aging Roberts Stream WM202, which still works well but my eyesight isn’t as good as it was. The display screen on the 94i is very cleR and easy to read. I have downloaded the Undock App and it has made operating the Sydeam 94i even easier for me. I have used the My Favourites function as well as My Added Stafions and even linked my new Stream 94i with my older Stream WM202. Wonderful radio. The beat radio I have ever owned. Thank You Roberts Radio.
