One of the best DAB/DAB+/FM/Internet radios you can currently get.

Lowest price in two years not sure it was ever available at the lower one even?

See post #13 by smicer072 Richer Sounds should price match + 6 year warranty and £5 off Amazon price. Posts #21-#23 Norfolk12a1 did get price match but because Amazon availability is currently 2-3 weeks they didn't take the extra Fiver off YMMV but it's worth trying a few times ;-)

Display was a bit bright as an alarm (Amazon reviews) but there has been a firmware update to allow this to be turned off - impydave post #12)

I have my 93i in the kitchen on top of the fridge and I have to say I love it as well as really good bass for a little box. I also stream (wifi) music from my phone to the 93i but I think you could buy a cheap Bluetooth reciver and use it via auxiliary.

yes a blutooth dongle and a battery dongle for portability.

Bit plasticky for my taste but still a good radio.
I listen to a lot of internet radio. as such, I have been through a lot of them trying them out. sound v cost, you can't get much better than this. don't let the small size fool you, sound is surprisingly full and rich. ideal for bedroom, office, kitchens.

And - unlike many - it handles the new BBC listen again streaming formats.
The Stream93i has also had a firmware update from Roberts which allows it to listen to BBC streams including listen-again once more:

I'm not voting as I don't have a clue about this.

However for those like me who still have hi fi separates, this is a way of bringing your stereos upto date through your aux connections. I use the Revo Axis 3. Which gives me Dab\Dab+ it also his a wifi connection for Internet radio and Bluetooth connection for my phone. The speakers are never going to be great on these little things, but connect it to a real hi fi and it should sound great like mine.

I voted hot in order to fool people into thinking this is a good deal. Over £100 for a radio? Hot!

​Weirdo...
Great unit, Spotify premium streaming too. No Bluetooth but can be added as has an aux input. Very pleased with mine.
Superb radio this is, recently had a firmware update that allows you to switch off the display, it was way to bright! Also the firmware fixed the long standing issue when the BBC changed their streams, you can again now access all Podcasts and on demand stuff. Well worth the price. Great sound too.
Use the Richer Sounds price match and you get 6 year warranty and the radio is only £118.
Voted hot. I went through Flubit and ordered for £109.12 but would advise going via Richer Sounds as per previous post - extra £9 for the additional 5yrs warranty on top of the manufacturer 12month guarantee seems worth it.
Great deal. thanks Op. I tested this at John Lewis a short while ago and compared to various others. This was by far the best for sound and features.. Price held me back then.. been waiting for price to come down. They have just introduced the new R-Line series but this unit does everything I need.
Or you could just get the station on the internet for nothing - that would be a hotter deal.

They look cool might even be tempted to trade in my Revo SuperConnect (_;)
£134.59 now, but still an excellent radio. Slightly more at Richer Sounds, but there is the 6 year warranty.
You can get a Bluetooth receiver at Hughes for £19.99. (I listed this before) There is a newer type receiver online at John Lewis but a bit pricey!
Back to £123.29 again.

Tried to get Richer Sounds to price match, but they would not because their radio has 6 year guarantee but Amazon only has 1 year as standard.

I'd try again if I were you- the guy who pricematched for me said it was fine. I even brought up the 6 year warranty and he said it was all good.

I did and they priced matched at £123, would not sell for £5 less as per their price promise as item was technically "not in stock" when I rang Richers, as Amazon was showing a despatch date of 2/3 weeks, well pleased.
excellent news. it was in stock at Amazon when I phoned so I got a bit fortunate. Enjoy!
Price up slightly at £126.99
Price down to at £125.42 and in stock for delivery

That is the problem with Richer Sounds. They have no stock and have not had any for some weeks. I phoned last week and was told that they had not had stock for some weeks and it was a special item which gets despatched directly from Roberts. Their website says it is available in store but it is not.

It makes me wonder whether the unavailability is due to Roberts updating the firmware on the models that have. Why they would need to do that if it can be updated over the air I do not know but that might explain why there is no availability ATM.

Personally I would rather have the white version.
Argos were selling it cheaper at about £125 than the more recent Amazon prices when I looked a couple of days back but it has now risen to £140.

Anyone know which is better, this or the Pure Evoke f3?
The f3 has Bluetooth built in but that's the only real difference I can find
