Roberts Radio Roberts R-Line S1 Smart Wireless Multi-room Speaker System tooth, If you read the What Hi-Fi review of just two stars you would be under the impression that it is terrible, which is really unfair and simply not true

When roberts introduced this back again in the summer months of 2016, i am certain they have been crossing their fingers for a sonos challenger. Alas, like numerous other makers seeking the same point it did not go so properly. That doesn’t detract from the reality this is a extremely well created product. At the quite the very least it is an excellect mains driven bluetooth speaker. You you should not will need to put in the application to get that to perform. It is a lot extra than that nonetheless. The internet radio is pretty good. I have utilized tune-in and it appeared to find all my obscure stations that i located there. You can keep 20 stations on the application but there is an account company at wifiradio-frontier. Com for a additional extensive favourites listing.

A couple of reviewers have commented on the audio high-quality – a handful of recommendations:* set the minimal switch on the back again to ‘wide’ – this will make a large variance. * use the undok app to modify bass (down) and treble (up) – there are also pre-set settings that may assist* switch the quantity up. . This unit likes to have its speakers pushed.

Effortless to set up and sounds excellent.

Comments from buyers

“Great value for money at £60 each, These speakers are great especially at the discounted price, Amazing sound and features for the price”

Picked this up this roberts s2 from yet another provider for just £79 and i won’t be able to believe that what a discount it is. If you read the what hi-fi overview of just two stars you would be beneath the impact that it is terrible, which is seriously unfair and simply not true. Other testimonials, such as which?. Have been substantially extra complimentary so i took the plunge and requested just one. I have constantly been picky on sound high-quality and insisted i experienced separates for my hi-fi, but to maintain my spouse delighted they had to go. The establish good quality is good and it has a weighty body weight to it. It connected to spotify connect with no issues at all also. The initial seem was a very little muffled, but change more than to ‘wide’ and anything snaps alongside one another flawlessly. A lot of weighty bass, very good mid array and excellent treble. It goes definitely loud if needed and can fill a huge place quickly.

Simple to connect to internet and manage utilizing ipad and samsung smart phone. Working with with internet radio and spotify.

Pretty audio from these types of a compact unit. Perhaps not the pretty very best but bloody superior lovely deep bass also recommend.

Just after offering it yet another manufacturing unit reset, (first time a pin was established, that was not ‘1234’)set up went efficiently employing the undok app. Rather uncomplicated to use and connect to spotify. The sound on the other hand was loud, but muffled. Sounded like the speaker was in a suitcaseshame, for the rate it seemed like a fantastic deal.

It performs properly and its not that tricky to set up, but you need to have additions for the full sound system. I like loud tunes and tons of bass on its own does not fulfill.

Good speaker no grievances.

Purchased one particular for £60 and was so amazed i purchased another four. The iphone computer software isn’t really so great, it can be alternatively clunky and has bugs this kind of as the engage in button disappearing when you pause a monitor but the seem fills a medium-sized room conveniently, you will find a lot of bass (i prefer the jazz eq placing to balance it out) and the line in and bluetooth are a significant bonus over the sonos products and solutions. Shame it doesn’t support amazon new music or plex, just spotify, internet radio and dlna but if i had long gone the sonos route i would have experienced to buy 2 x engage in 5s for the line-in and 3 x perform 1s and would have been about £900 worse off.

Fantastic piece of gear, genuinely fantastic sound, after established up with application it’s a doddle to use. I have two of these and the s1 all about the residence linked jointly on wi-fi and it’s brill.

This is a fantastic small speaker and for the the price tag it really is exceptional don’t hesitate with this.

The r-line sequence is roberts foray into the large conclude modular speaker system market dominated by sonas. Roberts have a tricky endeavor on their arms mainly because they have priced them selves a bit over the price of the market place leader so their package wants to be a lower higher than. Regrettably these are not really at the degree of sonas on appears to be like, sound top quality or in growth. Out of the, lavish and expensively black, box the r-one surely looks the element, with a wonderful excellent grill bordering three sides (despite the fact that the speakers are actually only of the regular entrance experiencing wide range so the grills on the sides are for aesthetics only) and a nice colour coded led shining as a result of which describes which mode the speaker is in (purple for radio, yellow for spotify etcetera), only the at any time so somewhat inexpensive on the lookout silver coloured major belies roberts a lot less than luxury origins. The best has just four buttons energy, two quantity, 1 selector/bluetooth connector and a factory reset. The rear of the speaker has a ability provide enter, wired internet option, a three. 5 jack input and a change to empower the speaker to be made use of on your own or as aspect of a stereo speakerset up, together with a normal or vast selection. Set up is effortless the moment you have downloaded the generic undoc application which just isn’t roberts certain and its via this that you management the speaker radio presets are quick to assign and there is certainly a awesome hyperlink to spotify. Almost everything else has to be accomplished by the bluetooth relationship which also works well. So far so okayish, nevertheless sadly seem high quality can only be described as ‘fine’.

Great system just as excellent as a sonos player one i come to feel the only trouble is its not entirely wireless but blue tooth is fantastic vey fantastic seem for £50i compensated brilliant worth.

I bought a pair of these although they ended up on sale. They are relatively moveable so i tend to use them in distinctive rooms sometimes for the radio and occasionally in the identical space joined for songs in stereo. I’m not just an audiophile but i do know that i have generally observed the seem high-quality from more compact, modern day speakers to be weak in contrast to ‘proper’ speakers. These nevertheless do not disappoint and i’m correctly happy with the audio good quality for songs when employed as a pair – it is not bad when made use of separately possibly. Everything would seem to perform effectively – having internet radio is fantastic as i live in a weak reception area for fm. The undok app does every little thing that i need to have it to – i largely stream tunes from a nas unit and it supports a significant audio high-quality stream. The speaker also will work great with an amazon echo by way of bluetooth. They search extremely smart way too – particularly for the cost albeit that i assume the present-day very low price tag displays a sale of aged stock.

Brilliant little gadget very best radio sign i have had for ten yrs listed here in norfolk.

Thought i would acquire a probability with this wireless/bluetooth speaker. Very first impressions are fantastic, decent bassy audio, you can add some treble as a result of the undock application. Definitely happy with it for the cash £65. You can use it as a television set speaker if you would like as effectively.

Use as a bluetooth speaker and the audio good quality is exceptional.

Took about half an hour to get it to connect with the wifi but at the time it was related i was quite amazed. The s2 feels incredibly strong and appears smart. I also very own a roberts stream 93i so i’ve utilised the undok application ahead of. The app identified the s2 and it functions properly. The audio from the s2 is significantly outstanding to my stream 93i and i thought that was very good. General i am genuinely pleased with the speaker, the seem is superb and at this cost (i paid out £65) it is an complete cut price and i would hugely advise it.

Surely for the value i compensated (£60) the excellent of this speaker is fantastic. If you choose it on audio top quality on your own it’s a five star product. Perhaps a tiny bassy at default but this can be managed with the equaliser in the application. I have it at somewhere around -15% bass and am happy with that. The only negative i have with this is that you can do very minimal with it without having making use of the undok application. The app alone performs fine and will allow you to decide on radio stations, neighborhood music (server), bluetooth and so forth. It does only permit 1 streaming company, that is spotifiy. High-quality if that is your individual services of preference but not if you use any of the many others (primary, deezer and so forth). Devoid of the application you can change this device on and it use the radio station you’ve got extra as presets in the app. I have mine connected to an echo dot by means of the aux in so the echo can be the interface. I are not able to remark on multi-room as that’s not how i use mine.

Purchases this speaker as a replacement for a dab radio at work, audio excellent is alright, mid vary is a little bit bad, the performance is excellent having said that the application to regulate the wifi radio could use some great tuning. Way too add – we bought a second a single to use the multi room features, it is a nightmare. We have a single or the other just end participating in, and now in some cases they neither enjoy anything at all.

These speakers are great especially at the discounted selling price. Regrettably appears to be like they are discontinued. As people have stated the app is not great, but its ok. Head boggling why there is no computer application, should be normal. I have 4 s1 speakers and 1 s2. Individuals remark on audio dropping out and so forth on multiroom, whilst unfairly blaming the speakers, this is a modem / aggregation concern, feel about it, five devices demanding wifi from a single supply, not the speakers fault. All multi rooms do this if you have a rubbish wireless modem. But i get all over this applying powerline network extenders, performs perfectly.For this price tag, you will get no superior multiroom seem, and a fantastic solid sound at that.

Exceptional wifi and bluetooth speaker. Audio high quality is very excellent as expected from roberts. The undok application is in some cases temperamental, but generally reliable. Very recommended, in particular at the price (£60).

    Took about half an hour to get it to connect with the wifi but once it was connected i was very impressed. The s2 feels very solid and looks smart. I also own a roberts stream 93i so i’ve used the undok app before. The app found the s2 and it works well. The sound from the s2 is far superior to my stream 93i and i thought that was good. Overall i’m really happy with the speaker, the sound is superb and at this price (i paid £65) it is an absolute bargain and i would highly recommend it.

    1. We have been very pleasantly surprised by this wifi speaker, really nice sound, have had a couple of little niggles with the app but nothing to really complain aboutwe decided that to use the bose 300 soundbar as an everyday music source as well as for the tvs/cinema was a little excessive as this would have been in use 16-18 hours a day. We bought this roberts r-line s2 smart speaker while it was on offer and in my opinion it has been terrific value for money and i think even at its rrp we would still have been pleased.

    Certainly for the price i paid (£60) the quality of this speaker is fantastic. If you judge it on sound quality alone it’s a 5 star product. Perhaps a little bassy at default but this can be managed with the equaliser in the app. I have it at approximately -15% bass and am happy with that. The only negative i have with this is that you can do very little with it without using the undok app. The app itself works fine and allows you to select radio stations, local music (server), bluetooth etc. It does only allow one streaming service, that’s spotifiy. Fine if that’s your particular service of choice but not if you use any of the others (prime, deezer etc). Without the app you can turn this unit on and it use the radio station you’ve added as presets in the app. I have mine connected to an echo dot via the aux in so the echo can be the interface. I can’t comment on multi-room as that’s not how i use mine.

    When roberts released this back in the summer of 2016, i am sure they were crossing their fingers for a sonos challenger. Alas, like many other manufacturers trying the same thing; it didn’t go so well. That doesn’t detract from the fact this is a very well made item. At the very least it is an excellect mains powered bluetooth speaker. You don’t need to install the app to get that to work. It is much more than that however. The internet radio is very good. I have used tune-in and it seemed to find all my obscure stations that i found there. You can store 20 stations on the app but there is an account service at wifiradio-frontier.

Bluetooth however is impeccable. When used with chromecast audio they are flawless. You will not find better for double the price. Get them before they are are gone. I have a small house and one s2 upstairs and one downstairs. Remember that the reviews you read online are for £300 eachedit.

If you read the what hi-fi review of just two stars you would be under the impression that it is terrible, which is really unfair and simply not true. Other reviews, including which?. Were much more complimentary so i took the plunge and ordered one. I have always been picky on sound quality and insisted i had separates for my hi-fi, but to keep my wife happy they had to go. The build quality is solid and it has a heavy weight to it. It connected to spotify connect with no problems at all too. The initial sound was a little muffled, but switch over to ‘wide’ and everything snaps together perfectly. Lots of weighty bass, good mid range and excellent treble. It goes really loud if required and can fill a large room easily.

    I bought a pair of these whilst they were on sale. They are relatively portable so i tend to use them in different rooms sometimes for the radio and occasionally in the same room linked for music in stereo. I’m not exactly an audiophile but i do know that i have generally found the sound quality from smaller, modern speakers to be poor compared to ‘proper’ speakers. These however do not disappoint and i’m perfectly happy with the sound quality for music when used as a pair – it is not bad when used individually either. Everything seems to work well – having internet radio is great as i live in a poor reception area for fm. The undok app does everything that i need it to – i mainly stream music from a nas device and it supports a high audio quality stream. The speaker also works great with an amazon echo via bluetooth. They look very smart too – particularly for the price albeit that i think the current low price reflects a sale of old stock.

    Purchases this speaker as a replacement for a dab radio at work, sound quality is okay, mid range is a bit poor, the functionality is good however the app to control the wifi radio could use some fine tuning. Too add – we bought a second one to use the multi room functionality, it is a nightmare. We have one or the other just stop playing, and now sometimes they neither play anything.

    1. Bought one for £60 and was so impressed i bought another 4. The iphone software isn’t so great, it’s rather clunky and has bugs such as the play button disappearing when you pause a track but the sound fills a medium-sized room easily, there’s plenty of bass (i prefer the jazz eq setting to balance it out) and the line in and bluetooth are a big bonus over the sonos products. Shame it doesn’t support amazon music or plex, just spotify, internet radio and dlna but if i had gone the sonos route i would have had to buy 2 x play 5s for the line-in and 3 x play 1s and would have been about £900 worse off.

    These speakers are great especially at the discounted price. Sadly looks like they are discontinued. As people have stated the app is not great, but its ok. Mind boggling why there is no pc app, should be standard. I have 4 s1 speakers and 1 s2. People comment on sound dropping out etc on multiroom, whilst unfairly blaming the speakers, this is a modem / aggregation issue, think about it, 5 devices demanding wifi from a single source, not the speakers fault. All multi rooms do this if you have a rubbish wireless modem. But i get around this using powerline network extenders, works perfectly.For this price, you will get no better multiroom sound, and a good solid sound at that.

All multi rooms do this if you have a rubbish wireless modem. But i get around this using powerline network extenders, works perfectly.For this price, you will get no better multiroom sound, and a good solid sound at that.

    Use as a bluetooth speaker and the sound quality is superb.
    1. Lovely sound from such a compact unit. Maybe not the very best but bloody good lovely deep bass also recommend.

    This was an absolute cinch to set up (which given the trouble i had setting up a similar speaker from a different manufacturer, is an absolute godsend. I’m looking at you, panasonic). Once you’ve downloaded and set up the undok app then it shouldn’t take too long before you’re up and running. Sound is pretty good – as it had better be given the £280 price tag. While audiophiles can probably reel off a long list of better speakers, for the average man or woman in the street (normal people in other words) £280 gets you a lot of audio bang for your bucks.
