These are about £50 - £60 everywhere tops and are struggling to sell for even that price on ebay. The £199 price is nonsense and was only put at that price today for show. This is the price on Amazon over the last month - clearly not £199 lol.

Agreed Amazon are NOT cheapest and best value any more. Quite the opposite, often these days Ive found. Returning stuff they're still best at though
Also, if you look at what it's normally sold for on Amazon by other shops (blue line), it's £58.99

The more shops and chains they kill off, the less need for value.

I have a couple of Roberts DAB radios and the sound quality is very good but are heavy on Batteries. You need to buy 2 sets of rechargeables and a charger unless you are using on mains supply.

Yeah, always found Roberts ARE heavy on batteries. Worth it for build quality and reception though
It's worth reading the reviews on Roberts site just below the price.

Thing with reviews is some mark down because the thing was delayed in delivery or marked high because they'd got it free for 5 star reviews. Ive lost count on Amazon how often Ive went by reviews and the OPPOSITE applied when mine arrived !
I have the R100 which is the model with the digital display. This can also be paired to it or another R1. Great sound quality. Connects to WiFi network so can play off phone and still take calls without music stopping. Undok is the app it uses which can be a bit lumpy. Plays via Bluetooth, spotify connect, internet radio or dab

I had one too and it's good bit of kit, nice looking with decent sound but the interface is very clunky. Swapped it for an Echo and not looked back. So much easier to use and way more versatile

That’s true but return to much and amazon will ban you for life
Got 1 of these in a bundle with a r100 and a battery for £150 well over a year ago the r1 on it's own was this price back then. The sound quality on this and the r100 is great and amazing when paired for stereo sound. However the r1 loses connection all the time and is so frustrating tried everything over the last year to sort it out but its still driving me nuts today.
Curious to know if Roberts Radio still exist as an original company or are they made by some foreign company trading on their name

Roberts Radio has been a subsidiary since 1994 of the privately owned GlenDimplex Group, which operates from the Republic of Ireland.

These separately have a rechargeable base for portable use. They are very much like the sonos play in all respects. Good for bedroom or kitchen. Not bought the rechargeable battery which would allow you to use away from WiFi and hence only as a Bluetooth player.
For 50 quid amazing value
Got this from JL a couple of xmas’s ago. One of my best buys at £49. Pairs up great with Bluetooth turntable and internet radio is so much better than dab. It’s on constantly. Does lose connection every few weeks but easy to reset.

After the lock down and people are back look up kk electrics on Amazon. I sold him loads he also sells the R1 which match and makes the R100 a stereo unit
Ok! What idiot was just going to post this and not buy one. That would be me!
I have failed in that sense and ordered one. I should know better.
What are the advantages of this over internet radio from a phone/tablet plyed through a normal bluetooth speaker ?
Edited by: "milady" 11th Apr
I have one of these. It's good, but I prefer my Chromecast audio into a Lepy Lp-2020a Hi-fi Stereo Class D Digital Audio Amplifier and 2 wharfedale diamonds 9.0s. Each to their own.

None at all. A normal bluetooth speaker has a rechargeable battery which this doesn't and for a fair bit less than this costs you'll get a very good bluetooth speaker.
Brilliant heat added

I have a Roberts iStream 3 Radio and have found their customer services to be non-existant - they are definitely based overseas. I notified them of a serious problem when using Tidal and their radios over a year ago now and basically their customer services were a total joke and never did anything. They have no clue what they are doing or what they are talking about. Turns out they don't have any customer services in the UK and the people you deal with (pretending to be their customer services) are basically just hired goons for show - they have no idea what they are doing, no technical knowledge and have nothing to do with Roberts the company. They fully admitted this to me and explained that Roberts have no customer services in the UK and that the company is overseas. The UK customer services telephone etc is just for show and all they do is pass the messages on to them overseas.
