Was £119 Now £83.50
Although displays out of stock online - I went in store and they had plenty on 30/12/2009. Nice radio with SD card record feature, shame it only records Digital radio channels and not FM.

Product Information:

The distinctly urbane, white ROBERTS Gemini 55 DAB digital radio offers stereo playback of MP3/ iPod via its auxiliary input socket (lead is not included).
An SD card (sold separately) allows you to pause, rewind & record live radio, which is great for if youre interrupted listening to the chart rundown or your un-missable show. You can also use it to play MP2/Mp3 files.

Cheap 2 this radio
Why cold
-Still prefer my £3 clock radio
i've got one of these , in fact of all the dabs i've had / got this is the only roberts I've bought & frankly, never again. the speakers are naff & the battery door resonates like tinsel wire on a speaker, really annoying & unless you fit a gasket periodically, happens aain & again, therefore I use this outside as my $hiiite radio for when my tinitus is really bad so sound quality is less of an issue...
Stick to a pure version in a wooden surround.
Still expensive. DAB just doesnt seem to be falling in price the way you'd expect.

Yeah completely agree, an rrp of £119 for a radio is just not realistic

I got mine (an ex-Argos job) from TJ Hughes a few years ago for £24.99, and a Genus DU-1 for about the same price from eBay. Both work brilliantly for me (my FM reception is lousy), but I've not seen any DAB deals as good as those since. And with DAB+ supposed to be on its way, I'm not prepared to invest more than that in something that isn't upgradeable to DAB+, or whose upgrade capabilities are purely theoretical at this stage.
Get a Pure radio, I have a couple Evoke and Oasis and they are very good. The Oasis can be had for about £60 and it has a built in rechargable battery that lasts about 15hrs.
I bought a Pure Elan II - in theory it will do DAB+ - and a good price too from JL.

very solidly made, and can go very loud without rattling and distortion unlike the Acoustic thingy now relegated to minor bedroom use
