      great quality radio

      It's a nice compact size, being about 290mm long by 110 mm deep by 125 mm weighing in at no more than 1 1/2 kg.
      There are six buttons on the cassette player and three sliding a number of dials, buttons and one or two holes in the rest of the unit.
      It runs of 4 of those batteries that are chunkier, the mains or, for freedom. (the 'C' size)
      It offers your usual stuff that any half decent radio/cassette player offers, a radio, AM/LW/FM, but no digital I am scared, and a cassette player that permits you to play those old fashioned small plastic case things with a reel in the middle that is connected to what looks like two cogs.
      And that is it. Apart from a bit tiny clock alarm that's in the top left corner and shows up on a small screen.

      There is a headphone socket so that that you do not have to annoy the neighbours, or, if you would like stereo sounds, outside speakers that are a couple of can be attached by you also.

      It has a single loudspeaker, on the right side, with an individual handle going over from one side to the other, having an extendible aerial for better quality radio signals.

      The radio tuning is even less difficult to see, frequency settings in the front, with several of the more popular stations being marked along the window, and manual so you must scroll through in order to change the station, using the straightforward to comprehend.

      The clock/alarm is just that, but I never actually used that function, although I did test it and can clearly say that if you use the alarm clock setting you are able to wake up to either the radio station of your choice or a buzzing noise that could readily annoy the Daly-Lama.

      I still make use of this in among the sheds, although unfortunately the cassette deck is broken, using a cassette still wedged inside to be honest, but the radio still works fine and the speaker still manages to give out a good enough sound, despite the fact that the entire unit is covered in paint, as well as other stuff I can not identify. However, the radio still works.

      This radio cost about GBP20 when I got it.

      An excellent quality radio

      This little radio bears a big name: Roberts. And it lives up to that name. I would have liked it to have a standard mains conection rather than an adapter one, as I bought it for mains use in the kitchen , but now I am using it in the bathroom, it keeps power from rechargeable AA batteries, all stations far better reception on battery than the Sony I have moved to the kitchen.Had previously purchased one of these and although I think it met with a premature demise, I had been so happy with it that I immediately bought an identical replacement - I don't think there's any other product out there to equal it for sound and quality for the price. I wanted it for use in the bathroom and needed pure battery power - happily the batteries last a really long time. Previous one developed a fault with on/off switch and wasn't worth the cost of repair. I may have been unlucky, or helped cause the fault myself by using it in a bathroom.
      A great purchase for less than £20.Small enough to sit on the window ledge of the en-suite without being obtrusive but still with controls that are easy enough to use with damp hands. If I was going to find fault I may say the case looks a little plasticy, but others may say that is because it is modern. Excellent price for a quality Roberts product.All in all an excellent radio, small enough to take under the bedclothes for late night listening yet large enough to fill a normal sized living room with good music.

      Life before CD's and digital is still here to see

      It's a nice compact size, being about 290mm long by 110 mm deep by 125mm high, weighing in at no more than 1 ½ kg.
      There are six buttons on the cassette player and three sliding buttons, a couple of dials and one or two holes in the rest of the unit.
      It runs of the mains or, for mobility, 4 of those chunkier batteries. (the 'C' size)
      It offers your usual stuff that any half decent radio/cassette player offers, a radio, AM/LW/FM, but no digital I'm afraid, and a cassette player that allows you to play those old fashioned small plastic case things that have a reel in the middle that is connected to what looks like two cogs.
      And that's it. Apart from a little tiny clock alarm that is in the top left corner and shows up on a small screen.

      It has a recording function, both internal and external, so you can either record your voice, using the inbuilt mic, or record the radio onto a cassette, (like in the good old days when you listened to top 40 on radio one and tried to record the music without getting the DJ's voice... now that was a challenge).
      There's a headphone socket so you don't have to annoy the neighbours, or, if you want stereo sounds, you can attach a couple of external speakers too.

      It has a single speaker, on the right side, with a single handle going over from one side to the other, with an extendible aerial for better quality radio signals.

      The radio tuning is manual so you have to scroll through in order to change the station, using the simple to understand, and even easier to see, frequency settings on the front, with some of the more popular stations being marked along the window.

      The clock/alarm is exactly that, but I never really used that function, although I did test it and can clearly say that if you use the alarm setting you can wake up to either the radio station of your choice or a buzzing noise that could easily annoy the Daly-Lama.

But the radio still works.

      This radio cost about £20 when I got it.
