Roberts Radio Roberts Blutune100 DAB/DAB, Decent sound but not as good as the cheap Blaupunkt Bluetooth speaker of similar dimensions

Fantastic distinct sound with an okay bass. I own a bose wave and the bose sounds more bassier but with the bose there is no treble management like there is on the roberts. In my view the sound on the roberts seems additional clearer as i like a ton of treble. For that reason its a thumbs up from me.

Substantially as envisioned given other reviews, it is a dab bedside radio alarm clock that charges my mobile phone. Good sound but not as very good as the low cost blaupunkt bluetooth speaker of related proportions that it replaces. Ridiculously over-complicated controls. What form of fiendish minds do they hire a roberts?.A single might have imagined that they of all persons would appreciate the value of very good old fashioned simplicity.

Like using it in bluetooth backlink up with my ipad for my amazon primary tunes lists and looking at football on my pad even though getting exceptional voice commentary from the radio.

Comments from buyers

“Looks great, sounds great, not a lot of bad!, Who needs Bose?!, Gorgeous build quality, easy to use, but far too much bass”

Held our breath when we requested this but having read other testimonials have been fairly assured about the good quality. Straightforward to established up with crystal clear instructions. Pleasant apparent read-out which is dimmable. The remote is uncomplicated to use – not as well quite a few buttons. Most importantly although, the sound creation is remarkable. Our rooms usually have an annoying echo but the prosperous, heat sound of the roberts blutune a hundred cancels this out. Would really propose this radio/cd participant.

Primarily for this kind of a tiny radio. I locate the self adjusting clock and info on the display screen really valuable.

Quite wealthy bass tones, a tiny also much at decreased volume but this is adjustable in the equaliser options. I have no dab reception at all where by i stay but fm tuning was uncomplicated to discover and keep. Bluetooth and cd procedure is a breeze. Thus you can fairly a lot stream any radio station if needed. This device appears stylish as well, the retro wooden search enclosure is properly finished. It is really not that massive either, simply smuggled into the kitchen.

Wonderful stereo,but i wish the buttons had been less difficult to get the job done out. Eg on,off button and the radio stations. Aged folks would discover it hard to perform out. In general excellent sound top quality, and appears to be like wonderful.

The sound is excellent but the instructions are a nightmare – nevertheless are unable to use 50 % the capabilities or any presets which is these types of a shame as it looks superior and seems fantastic but i desire it was not so impossibly complicated.

Ordered to switch our bose that went bang. . Extremely pretty fantastic price for income, sound is great, display screen is greater than the bose, distant is simple to use.

Wonderful styling, wonderful soundthe only purpose i do not give it five* is that it does not autotune the radio (as much as i can tell). On manual tune, if you are not fortunate sufficient to strike the actual strongest broadcast frequency, the sound excellent is so superior by means of the speakers, you also get a continual background hiss. But when in cd method, it is excellent.

An outstanding radio, configuration was a breeze, in fact it was so easy i failed to even discover it happening. So simple to use that even my eighty yr aged father in law had received to grips with it. Exceptional sound replica, and fm/dab reception even nevertheless other radios (including bose) have struggled to get a dependable signal, this 1 performs flawlessly. Roberts was in no way a make i’d regarded as prior to, but after this experience will surely be checking out their merchandise in the potential.

This does search gorgeous but there is considerably much too considerably bass. I are not able to even enjoy fairly tranquil songs devoid of listening to the thumping sound all by means of the house, which i come to feel is delinquent for my neighbours (and not definitely to my flavor). If there’s some way of adjusting this, i’ve been not able to obtain it, and i’m typically comparatively fantastic at locating and modifying settings on items. On the good side, it can be definitely straightforward to use all of the distinctive features. I was so pleased to come across anything with a relatively modest footprint that appears to be like so aesthetically satisfying and has each a cd participant (astonishingly or unsurprisingly unusual to obtain these times) as properly as dab radio. I like the interface, which is in a form of glowing white/blue in opposition to a black track record, and i like the clock, which stays on even when the music participant is off (until obviously it can be turned off at the mains). In the long run, i do like it and it can be excellent for radio, but i’m not delighted with the audio. This might be individual style but that’s my reaction. In each and every other respect it truly is really great good quality but the bass spoils it for me completely.

Eccentric style and design in some methods, but amid all the available solutions i imagine i have preferred the right equipment. It sounds very superior and it operates. The design is simple and sophisticated – so quite a few of these radio/gamers are pig unsightly these times. I would have chosen a wooden veneer version, but this was not accessible at the time i needed it.

The sound is incredible, it is increadibly quick to use, seems to be fantastic and also performs cd’s which was lacking on the majority of other manufacturers i was comparing it with. I purchased it to use in a smaller home so the max quantity is a lot more than satisfactory, but i consider in a huge lounge/ location a little bit a lot more quantity could be needed.

Sound excellent is not really excellent for the rate paid out. You can purchase much less expensive and get the very same excellent sound.

Purchased this for the other 50 percent and she was around the moon. The sound high-quality is wonderful and far excellent to roberts revival rd60 that she liked. There is a good deal of bass accessible, but this can be turned down if too boomy for neighbours. Had to reset the dab tuner to get stations, but this is demonstrated in the instruction reserve and was uncomplicated to do.

Sound quality okay for the price tag pity digital radio protection is worthless as really handful of stations offered in my place of cambridgeshire.

Gave it three stars but not guaranteed if it justifies that. For a starters way far too much bass. Distant control the even worse a person i have ever witnessed you cannot sense any buttons and in no way know how to maintain it and were to position it. Fantastic luck with carrying out everything with this distant when it’s dark in a area. You need to transform the bass virtually all the way down and then you get the sound that is not that bad.

Just the ticket for brief, simple access to a preference of electronic radio stations, or playback from my very own cds or electronic new music assortment. I dithered for ages, examining assessments and evaluating specs, also thinking about a smaller hi-fi (i. With different factors), before pulling myself jointly and recognising this as an ideal combination of sizing, top quality and price tag. It was incredibly straightforward to established up a 50 %-dozen pre-sets for the stations i really delight in (i can only assume a house with wildly divergent preferences would want ten dab and ten fm pre-sets to bop all over twenty different stations). Remote management can make almost everything even much easier, even though all the controls for this gadget (on the distant and the major of the device), like most modern day av structure, are a little bit too sleek and understated: all the buttons are the same dimension and model, with instead small, faint, small-contrast text labels (which will definitely dress in off with frequent use, rendering it even a lot more gnomic). Take note to roberts (and all your competitors): i for a single would welcome a location of color, bigger textual content or symbols, and controls of various form and/or dimensions, to make it a lot easier to distinguish diverse functions at a glance.

The sound is amazing, i would have liked much better identification for the controls, primarily if you try out to do it in the dim, it is extremely quick to confuse the controls. Environment and resetting the pre set’s is complicated. Would have bought extra stars apart from for the fiddly mother nature of the press button manage and procedure.

This actually is a extremely very good unit and it does fulfill my anticipations. I did purchase one in the beginning and had true troubles in placing it up so i did return it and i must say that the support from amazon was really fantastic. I did make contact with roberts to reveal the challenge and was provided superior information as to how this could have been rectified. The challenge was not with the device but the genuinely does require to be a fantastic and really apparent setup guidebook bundled with the booklet it is not ample just to say that you have to have to read the booklet right before working with the merchandise. When setting it up you do require to carry out a manufacturing facility reset in get to access all the dab radio stations in your region. This actually does will need to be set into a single sheet established up guidebook so that you can keep away from preliminary disappointments. The high quality of sound is extremely superior and i do find a rebel managed really useful and effortless-to-use.

Sound its not actually very good, examining the responses i was expecting something much better. Forget about about hear trought headphones its unbelievable undesirable. The equalizer set up disappear right after unplugging, but the alarms are retain in memory. Total: its just ok , i use it as a big clock alarm and laptop bluetooth speakers.

4 stars given simply because laser is incredibly delicate. All my cd’s are in outstanding problem but participant at times stops midway as a result of perform for no obvious motive a cd will engage in properly all the way as a result of just one working day but not the next day. Amazon changed the device for me but this next just one does the exact same. As a result summary of delicate laser. Outstanding sound, straightforward to use and over-all incredibly pleased.

Not a terrible system at all and does what it suggests on the tin. Regarded a bose but at these silly rates couldn’t justify it to myself and consequently i tried this and was not unhappy. Picks up most of the radio stations i wanted without the want for an external aerial- the system is in the lounge. Blue tooth ok as well and also the cd- does every thing you require for this sort of a tiny intrusion into your home furniture and many others. Try it at great small selling price when compared to bose.

    Great stereo,but i wish the buttons were easier to work out. Eg on,off button and the radio stations. Elderly people would find it hard to work out. Overall great sound quality, and looks nice.

    I’ve also taken the telescopic aerial off the back to plug in the house spare aerial for dab. I knock off one star because it’s got too much bass. I turned it down as far as it will go but can’t understand how it’s been acoustically tuned, but mid range and tweeter are balanced well. The remote is odd shape too and letters could be clearer on remote read.

  11. I bought this to replace an older version that was beginning to look tatty in our nice new kitchen. It workd just a well as the original but the blue tooth means i no longer need to attach my phone to get my music. The dab audio is very very good but i had difficulty getting it to receive anything out of the box until i when into settings and did a restart. The only disappointment is that i could have afforded the more expensive bluetune 200 it i had waited 3 weeks as the price came down to almost equal to the discounted price i paid for the 100 version. Still i dont mind as i do not need the record feature which is really the only functional difference between the bluetune 100 and 200.

    I do love it and it’s a beautiful object, g important to me. Hearing a favourite spookymen track played on the afternoon show such a pleasure as the machine did it justice – though i agree i might have to work out how to ease down the bass for general purposes. The one star deduction (half a star would have been more appropriate but not possible) for the tacky-feeling remote whose keypad in almost unreadable even in strong light. Also, the presets function isn’t very helpful and i do like that so i can easily swing between r3 and r6 as the fancy takes me.

    I’d wanted a bose for around 15 years, but never had the “spare” £500+. . Christmas is here and so are my christmas cd’s, but nothing in the house to play them on and still no “spare” £500, so. I did some research and alot of people recommended roberts with alot saying they’re better/the same quality as bose and they are absolutely right and for less than half the price.Super-duper happy with this product.

    Beautiful sound, clear radio, no problems at all connecting to bluetooth. I am extremely picky when it comes to speakers and have compared these to a few brands before deciding this was the kit for me. I also love it’s looks, and if the description is to be believed, the wood shell helps to add to the sound stage. The sound that is produced from these is warm and smooth, and fills the room effortlessly. It sounds beautiful from the lowest volume to. Well let’s say about mid volume. I have read reviews saying this piece of kit is quiet, and believe me it isn’t. And i can’t comment on the max volumes as playing it at volume 18 of (i think 30) is enough to make the floors rumble. Sadly there are a couple of negatives for me. Firstly while you can change the lcd display brightness on standby, there is a constant blue light on the front face which might be a bit disturbing to some people while trying to sleep.

    1. Bought this for the other half and she was over the moon. The sound quality is great and far superior to roberts revival rd60 that she loved. There is a lot of bass available, but this can be turned down if too boomy for neighbours. Had to reset the dab tuner to get stations, but this is shown in the instruction book and was simple to do.

    The sound quality is fab, it feels like a quality product and the range of sources is something to commend it. I also like it’s elegant design. The remote control feels a bit cheap and flimsy however, and the menus are a tad clunky to operate.

      1. Eccentric design in some ways, but among all the available options i think i have chosen the right machine. It sounds very good and it works. The design is simple and elegant – so many of these radio/players are pig ugly these days. I would have preferred a wood veneer version, but this was not available at the time i needed it.

      1. Excellent device, i have brought too of these blutune 100’s, one to use ourselves at another location and one for an old couple who required a dab/fm radio and cd player system such as this. It is excellent quality and as steve jobs once said it works straight out of the box. Good quality, well made, a bit on the expensive side perhaps but for me worth the extra cost. The unit is very easy to use and the only difference that i could detect between the devices was a slight difference in the provided handset, one was just that little bit more positive to use than the other, but they both worked in every respect with no problems. As for volume i found it adequate to fill a normal sized living room with sound and good fidelity.
