Ocean Digital WR282 WiFi Internet Radio : thousands of stations which makes selection somewhat tedious. Screen will dim completely but complicated

A great introduction to internet radio. A great little piece of kit, easy to set up, it found our network without problem and the reception and sound quality are fine for the price – if you’re looking for an entry level internet radio, based on my experience so far, i can highly recommend this unit.

Excellent audio reception and ample favourite presets. Excellent audio reception and ample favourite presets. Casing, however, is rather ‘tinny’ and whilst some persons may appreciate the very light weight, i personally prefer something heavier. It does not have as many loaded stations as my roberts stream 107 portable and i was disappointed that my own local bbc channel and its neighbouring one were not installed.

First class piece of equipment – buy it . First class piece of equipment, compact, stylish, efficient, does exactly as described, easy to set up and covers a multitude of worldwide stations as well as local. Reception is excellent and sound is good without the addition of extra speakers, although i have added. Design is good and sits well in any surroundings.

This is a class piece of kit. It’s small so will fit on a small table, ledge, or wherever you want it. All i need to focus on now is how to make sure i can receive radio stradbroke to it. The sound quality, too, for such a small piece of kit, is superb. I love it, the family loves it. Although we were very fond of our 10-year-old reciva, this is definitely a better radio.

It is relatively easy to set up and. For the price, this device is excellent. It is relatively easy to set up and you soon have 50 or 60 interesting stations saved in your favourite list. Then comes the problem – it is virtually impossible to re-order the list. If you want to move a station from position 56, say, to position 16 then you have to make 160 button presses on the remote control. I gave up and simply printed myself out a list of the stations. The first 5 ‘favourites’, nos 1-5, for some reason, can’t easily have any programme saved into them (the instruction booklet doesn’t help here). If you try to move a programme from say position 8 into this special favourites place, you can do it but then you have a gap in position 8?.The sound quality is good from the in-built loudspeaker but unless your ear is within a foot or two of the set, it is not loud enough – but would be ok with external speakers connected to the 3.

Ocean Digital WR282 WiFi Internet Radio with Music Streaming Wooden Cabinet -black : Great product, a few minor problems with wifi network connection but nothing i couldnt resolve. Would recommend the product to others who dont have a great dab/fm reception in the area. Audio quality was clear, but lacks a bit of bass.

Decent radio for the price. . Purchase arrived quickly and well packaged, i’m not computer tech savvy but found setting up radio simple, only downside, as posted by others, remote had no batteries supplied,still, for the price not a problem.

I connected up to my old aiwa stack system with it’s very powerful speakers. I now, in addition to vinyl and cassette, i have internet radio, bluetooth connection, home network connection as well as dab through the same system. Easy connection to all, instructions very clear. I often wondered why bothered about internet radio. The difference is quite pronounced. Listening to a certain genre from different countries means there are different play lists and you dont have to listen to the same old tracks played by stations in this country. To find the stations, you download the app (mine onto a laptop) you then search the list, and try the stations. Add them to your favourites and they appear on the ocean digital system.

Thousands of stations which makes selection somewhat tedious. Screen will dim completely but complicated. I don’t understand why these boxes are so expensive but this is at the bottom end (around £60) and seems ok. As listed, thousands of stations which makes selection somewhat tedious. Screen will dim completely but complicated.

Easy to use and superb quality. I was surprised at how small this radio is but it works perfectly for our needs. Connecting to wifi was super simple and gave us so many digital options we were spoilt for choice. We haven’t had a problem with the signal on analogue channels either. Setting up the bluetooth was also insanely easy, as was saving favourite channels. In fact everything about this is really easy to use and streamlined. We couldn’t recommend it highly enough.

It compliments my old bose wave radio beautifully equipping it with dab, internet radio and bluetooth capabilities. I love the colour display and it also features a proper external antenna connection so i can connect it to my external aerial. There is a similar product to this on the market which only has a built-in telescopic antenna and no aerial socket which would be no use to me. Fast response when buttons are pushed on the included decent sized remote control with zero lag. This unit is very slim so i can place it at the front of a shelf and still store items behind it. It sounds great also (via my bose wave radio used as an amplifier) as the unit does not have any built in speaker(s). Fills a gap in the market particularly for users who prefer to still use their vintage or favourite audio equipment and gain the additional benefits this unit has to offer. It gets a thumbs up from me.

My third internet radio – and so far this one’s still working. Quite a neat little piece of kit, once you fight your way through the log-on instructions, and re-set the battery in the remote so it works properly. Note that at the end of entering the wifi password you should not press the ‘right’ button to enter the final letter, but go straight to the central button which enters the entire password; when you have a french router with an un-alterable 26 character password which fails to register after the third attempt, you learn these things. Shame the instructions didn’t make this clear. Still haven’t got the ‘switch back on to the last station listened’ working, despite switching that setting that on several times, but we’ll get there. Just wonder why all internet radios have to be so complex to set-up and tune in, when it’s so easy on an iphone.

Early morning in uk can be a bit temperamental with receiving north american channels. In all other respects this is a great wee gizmo; easy to set up and well worth the price. If you like slick looking tech then avoid this. It’s a black brick with little going for it in the looks department. But it’s reliable with very secure wifi link up. The only thing i don’t like is that unlike dab this has no rolling on screen programme info. I would have thought internet radio would have more info but apparently not. So-so sound (mono tinny speaker). But it is a good radio if you want to listen in to radio botswana. Or for that matter any other channel on the planet.

Very good, works in sweden no problems at all. Very good, works in sweden no problems at all. One thing we did find was that the code to register it on the web site was a little hard to find but other than that excellent.

Ocean Digital WR282CD DAB/DAB – Super Radio. Super Service.

The initially supplied remote didn’t work, but the seller quickly and efficiently replaced it and all is now working fine. The radio wakes me up with my favourite continental radio station (swiss classique) which is all i ask. The visual display is exceptionally clear too. Only criticism is the somewhat useless instruction manual, though fiddling with the buttons on the radio soon got the desired results.

Fills a huge gap in the market. – great. Fills a huge gap in the market. My home has neither good fm or dab reception. This great little device allows us to listen to any worldwide radio station simply and with no fuss. – exactly what i was looking for.

Excellent radio and excellent customer service. Purchased this radio for use in the kitchen. The reception is excellent and it is very easy to use and configure.

This is the best piece of audio equipment we’ve ever purchased. This is the best piece of audio equipment we’ve ever purchased. Compact & attractive cabinet. Very easy to set up & operate. We now listen to it more than any of the other music players in our house.

Amazing radio – really good sound – picked up internet channels really well. I live in a poor reception area so cannot get dab or fm so internet radio is the only way to guarantee a signal. Haven’t tried bluetooth yet but if it connects well then i suspect it will be used as my hi-fi.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Now working well
  • good solid well built piece of equipment
  • Good quality sound, but fiddly to use and far from ideal as a radio alarm.

A great way to get internet radio. Excellent little unit, easy to set up, l’ve used it with my b&w zeppelin and it is great, also very fast delivery.

Amazing sound and very easy to set up for old. Ideal for use in vietnam with correct wifi imput,some hotelsdont have correct licence for overseasuse being a communist country. Amazing sound and very easy to set up for old person. Much lighter than my previous two wifi roberts,easy on the luggage,will leave this behind for my family they have seenhow good it is to use.

This radio works well for its intended use, it was easy to set up, remote works well, sound is good for such a small unit, equalizer is a nice feature. I like the wooden casing, but it didn’t have to be black, brown would be nicer.

Good quality sound, but fiddly to use and far from ideal as a radio alarm. . I bought the radio to use as a bedside alarm radio and although it does the job its not ideal for that. I live in spain and receive my preferred radio, the bbc via local radio but not all the time so thought the internet radio would be great. I am writing this review to help people who might be considering buying this model for the same reason. I occasionally wake early and like to put the radio on playing quietly while i doze then be woken again at the set time. The first problem is the display is of the type that illuminates the room even on a low setting, my previous fm clock radio shows the time without sending much glow into the room. The display can be dimmed easily when the radio is off by turning the volume knob but need re dimming using the remote if you switch the radio on. That is fiddly and can only be done using the remote, it usually involves switching the light on, finding my glasses and anyway cannot be totally dimmed with the radio playing. After all that faff going back to sleep or dozing is less likely. Another problem is although the time is displayed while the radio is playing the main part of the display shows what station is playing and a load of irrelevant (to me) numbers.

My husband gave me one for xmas and i like it so much that i have bought a second. My husband gave me one for xmas and i like it so much that i have bought a second one. Prompt dispatch and quick delivery; thank you.

Great product which does everything it says it does. Only minor gripe is it sometimes lags when woken up from standby mode. Item was received well before the advertised date.

Does what it says and seems to be good value.

Zettaly Avy Portable tooth 4 : Battery burned and fire

Does everything i need it too and more. Great sound and easy to move around the house or outside.

Novel but there are obvious compromises. This zettaly avy bluetooth smart speaker offers a promising fusion combining the versatility of an android tablet and the entertainment value of a bluetooth speaker in one unit. The device runs android kitkat and features a 7′ capacitive screen with a resolution of 1024×600 pixels plus it incorporates a spotify connect compatible music player. The unit is powered by a lithium ion battery, 1. 3ghz quad core processor with 1gb of ram, 8gb of storage, a vga front camera and built in microphone. You can expand the memory by using a micro sd card with a capacity of up to 32gb. Battery life is around 6 hours but this depends on how you use the unit. The first thing which struck me is the attractive appearance – it looks really good and the screen and speakers visually fuse perfectly together. However, the unit feels rather lightweight compared to other quality bluetooth speakers i have used. The screen is sharp with vibrant colours but this quality isn’t mirrored in the speaker function.

Mother in law approves, all is right with the world. . I bought this for my mother in law who lives in the north of belgium, but likes to listen to the radios of the south. Due to the bilingual nature of our country, this presents some challenges, and moving around with a smartphone and headphones is not practical. This is what she has to say:radio internet avy zettaly android. Forme arrondie avec un creux derrière pour une prise aisée. On peut donc transporter l’appareil facilement et sans danger de le laisser tomber. Les couleurs blanc et noir contribuent à rendre cette radio discrète et très élégante. Elle convient donc à tous les types de pièces et de mobilier.

Good conception and realy great device. Good conception and realy great device, but lacking in quality and with trash support (its like talking with 10 years old chinese kid). Still, i recommend it, cause i love it. This soundtab is all what i was looking for – i needed internet radio for my mom (she loves listening radio, but fm is horrible where she lives). And i must to mention, that this little thing is realy loud.

Brilliant device for a hifi interface. . This is a brilliant device for the money. I now use it as the main source for my hifi, it can be connected with the 3. 5mm output or as i have done- digitally via hdmi to my av receiver. This means high quality music can be processed by the receiver and it sounds excellent. It just acts as a neat control system, with a nice angle to be placed at the hifi, for those times when you just want to walk up to your system and play music with out to much faffing with a chromecast and bluetooth from your phone. (i do have those as well, sometimes you want different types of control. It is really good with the bbc radio app and podcasts etc. Also because it has hdmi out it works well as a settop box, you can have netflix, bbc etc.

Zettaly Avy Portable Bluetooth 4.0 HiFi Smart Speaker (White), WiFi Internet Radio Powered By Android 4.4 Kitkat with Built-in 7 Inch Quad Core Tablet and Google Play : A massive thumbs up for this one. I was very kindly sent this smart speaker by the seller for review. I have been using it for just over one week to date. I have never seen one of these of before and was intrigued to see what this smart speaker was all about. I have uploaded a few pics to show how it looks – screen quality/colours – apps – connections. What is it?basically it’s a bluetooth speaker intergrated with an android kit kat 4. You can now listen to internet radio straight through the speakers or watch movies with great audio. It’s basically an all in one portable entertainment centre.

Was doubtful about this concept when i first bought it but i have since found it to be my indispensable desk companion. I use my pc for work but have the zettaly beside me for on internet radio, music streaming and any other second screen use. I can then easily take it to the kitchen to watch tv or listen to music while having a meal. It looks good, sounds good and i have been delighted with its excellent quality and versatility.

An interesting combination of bluetooth speaker and android tablet, but very good and recommended. . This is an interesting combination of portable bluetooth speaker and a 7-inch android tablet, (although tablet obviously isn’t the correct word here). It is reasonably light and easy to carry, especially with the recessed hand grip on the top. So, there are 2 things to review here – the first is the speaker: it pairs very quickly, in fact, almost instantaneously. Now, obviously there are better speakers out there, but then they would be more expensive, but for its size, it is pretty good. I started by playing beethoven’s piano concerto number 1, (first movement), and all the instruments could be identified, and without too much bass. The treble, or high end was very good. Now, it obviously does not have the depth of a stand-alone speaker, but it is certainly acceptable. I then tried the corrs, (breathless), and no complaints here at all. The tablet – setting up took a little while, (longer than say my phone), but it got there, and this is really a one off.

Out of the box and onto the coffee table – set up and ready to go in a triceanyone used to android systems (and probably everyone else) will find it truly intuitive. Just log it onto wi-fi, add the usual personal account stuff, choose music and/or tv streaming services – that’s it – watch and listenthe (proper, printed, multi-lingual) instruction manual’s good too; as is the nifty range of international electricity-socket adaptors. And the nice little remote control. An ex-pat in portugal, i use spotify for music and filmon for uk tv channels so the avy gives me a self-contained, portable av entertainment module that’s easy to use, light to carry – and, for such a compact device – a surprisingly rich sound.

This is a great multi-function device that i am using as a portable. This is a great multi-function device that i am using as a portable security monitor for streaming video from my cctv system. ) remote control for my youview box, surround system, xboxthe built in battery is great and therefore allows it to be moved from room to room.

Multi room multi purpose tablet/sound system.  this is a nice little device to have and it can be of use in many different situations in many rooms in your home. For example it could be used in the kitchen to help you follow a complicated recipe or for simply listening to music whilst working away in the kitchen. It would also be ideal on any bedside table to use as clock alarm and also to have a full media setup right next to your bed. Or it can be used in the living room as part of your media setup thanks to it having hdmi out so you could stream to your tv if required. The sound from this speaker/tablet easily fills a room and it is a nice concept to have a built in tablet so you have multiple uses for it as well as playing all your favourite audio. The seven inch tablet is running android and it is a smooth experience and everything works as it should. The sound pad also has a front facing camera which makes it ideal for video calls. Around the back aswell as the full size hdmi port you have a usb port to which you could use add a wireless keyboard and trackpad combo. There is also a micro sd card slot to load your favourite music and films onto the soundpad or it can simply be used to add to the 8gb of onboard storage space.

I’ve had this a couple of days now, and i love it. I used to have an archos 35 as a bedside alarm clock, but much to my dismay it died a year or so ago and could not be revived. I always wondered if anyone would come up with a successor, and now they have. I am using this as a music source in my workshop, and it’s perfect for that. It plays music from the internet (usually tunein. Com), and if i ever need to watch a youtube video to help with a project, it can do that too. Let’s hope that the reliability is up to scratch.

Imagine an android phone without a sim. So it can do all the normal things, except calls and text. Then add some (pretty good for the size and price) speakers. Press the display-on button, and it’s immediately ready for action:press the radio player icon, and we’re listening to internet radio; or the media player, and we’re streaming from our music collection. Meanwhile, check out the local weather forecast and our diary for the week or see the news headlines (yes, the screen is a good size); the possibilities are endless. This is one of the best purchases i’ve ever made.

Roberts Radio Stream104 Portable DAB/DAB – Roberts Stream Dream

Use it with the undok appbut you can just use it manually too. . I have found this really easy to set up. Its sound quality is good and its well built. . The radio is internet, dab and fm ready. And all of these set up quickly and easily. . You can also play music from your pcit is also possible to download an app for free from the app store called undok. . This has worked well for me. . You can turn the radio on and off. Essentially a sophisticated remote for the radio.

Great sound, can be controlled remotely from the undok. Top radio, high spec, great sound, can be controlled remotely from the undok app. Surprising such a great radio is not stereo but don’t let that stop you buying it. Use rechargeable batteries as it is thirsty.

Just in case you’re unsure dab radio, internet radio, you can plug your ipod in to listen to music via a cable, and it does streaming of music too. You can use a sleep alarm so it goes off after 29 mins and awaken to the radio too. Great sound quality for your home and office. The only thing i wish it had was a built in rechargeable battery. Here are the specifications for the Roberts Radio Stream104 Portable DAB/DAB:

  • Enter your model number
    to make sure this fits.
  • DAB/DAB+/FM/Internet radio
  • Spotify connect
  • 120 station pre-sets
  • Two alarm timers
  • Six position equaliser and separate bass and treble

We have always had problems with radio reception in our kitchen but the arrival of the internet radio has solved all that. As long as the wi-fi is working we have digital-quality radio from around the world.

This is a well made, reasonably priced daband we can highly recommend it. First things first : thank you roberts for including a well written manual included with the radio. Oh, how it makes life so much easieri have one word to describe the radio – brilliantit’s so easy to set up (even the ‘internet radio’ section) within 5 minutes i had pre-programmed 6 dab stations and 3 podcasts – 5 minutes, that’s almost the same as using my computer. You get access to dab and dab+; fm; internet radio (including transmitted podcasts) as well as an auxiliary in (3. 5mm jack plug input) for connecting anything else you need (like a portable music player?). Dab design and construction has come on leaps and bounds since the early days, so many stations can now be found (and stay found) and can be listened to in wonderful digital clarity. The volume level is quite mind blowing for such a relatively small radio; in out kitchen, i raised the level to deafening levels and i hadn’t reached full volume. Not only that, but it didn’t distort. Quite honestly, my wife and i were blow away by just how great this is to use. Another one word description – intuitive.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Excellent quality and value
  • Great for the price.
  • For the Money excellent! One moan constant software updates for how long

Good value, easy to use, affordable, compact.

Retro style radio , but with 21st century performance-a fabulous combination. This is a cracking little radio. Powerful sound, great reception, retro styling. Well, set up will take ages if you don’t read the instructions, which many males might be tempted to do (ahem. ) that will slow everything down. But i’m sat here listening to a new york chat show, then i can flip to a classic rock station, catch up with sport on five live. In short, the world of radio at your fingertips. Because it could be battery operated as well as mains, it could be taken out anywhere, and work equally well. I’m just using it linked to my wifi as a kitched radio, and it is superb for that.

Otherwise another brilliant roberts radio. Only criticism was the feet were slightly uneven. Otherwise another brilliant roberts radio.

Got for my husband as christmas gift to listen to his italian football.

Excellent product, so good that it’s the second one we are now using in different rooms for wifi connection.

Revo Supersystem Music Player : A fine product from an excellent British – Scottish! – manufacturer. Best radio I’ve ever owned. Thanks, !

Delighted with this product. I moved house and was recommended this when looking at sound systems for my living room – it’s been a great decision. It’s absolutely load enough and we use the bluetooth when guests are round.Get the walnut it looks good especially with white/grey walls or wooden flooring.

Fantastic sound, great old school design.

If only it had a sleep button on the remote, it’d be perfect.

At £400 its a great price delivered. Just received my refurbished unit. 1st impressions are top quality. I’m not an audiophile but compared to my pure mono unit its replacing it beats it hands down. At £400 its a great price delivered. I’d use the on-line app to store your favourite internet stations. Not used it on any other mode yet. Remote control is solid just like the main piece of kit.

Great design, sound and materials. I use the internet radio and spotify which work perfect.

Revo Supersystem Music Player with Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and OLED Display – Walnut/Black : A fine product from an excellent british – scottish.I’m revising a negative review i originally posted here, that i sent out of genuine disappointment and frustration at an expensive revo product that unfortunately developed a serious fault, that rendered it totally useless. It was a faulty microchip – a very occasional fault in any digital equipment owing to the microscopic scale of the engineeringbut i’m glad to say that i have since enjoyed a more positive experience, thanks to revo’s truly top-class customer support. The upshot was they immediately offered me a full refund in consideration of the breakdown of this brand-new radio, or alternatively, a replacement with discount in recognition of the serious fault in the first unit. I opted for a replacement, and they organized the courier service with no hassle for me at all. It has been a real pleasure dealing with such very committed and helpful people at revo, at their international base in scotland. They were as disappointed as i was with the failure of this unit, and really got weaving to sort things out.

A very satisfied customer. . I have been completely satisfied with the revo supersystem. Apart from the excellent audio reproduction and extensive facilities, it was truly simple to setup. I would highly recommend this system.

A really super hifi system. . I actually was interested by the superconnect at first but i chose to give the supersystem a try mainly because this is a true stereo system. I was a bit affraid to put this amount of money for a ‘table radio’ but i am happy to have make this choice now. This is a special device for my hifi installation right now. I even use it with a pre-amplified vinyl turntable pluged in the aux input. Man, the sound is very impressive for such a small unit. Since one week i have tested several types of music with it and i can say that the sound is powerful and deep. What i especialy appreciate is that it gives a very neutral reproduction of the sound. I set the egalizer up this way : bass = 0, treble = 2 which is a mix of the jazz and rock presets and boom that’s it. By the way, i am a french customer.

A very satisfied customer. . I have been completely satisfied with the revo supersystem. Apart from the excellent audio reproduction and extensive facilities, it was truly simple to setup. I would highly recommend this system.

Beatiful piece of kit and just the job if you have a premium spotify account. The undok remote control app is highly recommended too. However the system lacks punch but the sound is crystal clear. Buy the refurbed because they are brand new. Get a subwoofer attached if you like to feel the bass.

Fantastic sound, real power and depth for a smallish. Fantastic sound, real power and depth for a smallish piece of kit. Easily outperforms ruarkr2 mk3 in a large room where you need a but more power, and only ruark that sounds comparable is the r4 which does not stream audio and is much more expensive.

Great sound – button design lacking. Having used the revo supersystem for two months now i can say that it is an excellent system and is probably one of the best sounding units of this type out there. However, there are some shortcomings which from a design, and therefore usability point of view mean that it loses a star from an otherwise excellent device. Chiefly this is the extremely poorly thought out design of the buttons on the unit. Not only is it nigh on impossible to read the legend by each one, the plethora of buttons mean it is also pretty hard to remember the position of one you consider to be important. The two most important buttons are the joystick and selection buttons which are naturally next to the main display (logical), however, the third most important button is the menu which should have been clustered with these other two. Instead its the second one tucked away on the second row (pretty useless if the light is not bright enough to read the minuscule text next to the button). The remote control doesn’t fair too well either with almost unreadable grey on dark grey buttons (dumb). Don’t these people use their own products in normal environments?. Come ona recent firmware update means the revo supports alac files from the mac (over upnp/dlna) as well as high quality bbc listen again content.

If only it had a sleep button on the remote, it’d be perfect.

Superb all round sound system. Black black in the kitchen and walnut silver in the bedroom. Sound quality and functions makes this unbeatable. The remote, smart phone control and physical control buttons make this unbeatable. Listened in depth to this against sonos, ruark and sony units prior to purchase. Sonos and sony were a good match for sound quality but both left in the dust by their lack of control options and lack of any real control without a phone in your hand which for me is a negative. The sony stsx99 was an equal in sound quality i would say. Not sure why the ruark gets good reviews for sound quality as i thought they were dull for premium products. Mainly use for fm radio, internet radio and nas streaming.

However, there are some shortcomings which from a design, and therefore usability point of view mean that it loses a star from an otherwise excellent device. Chiefly this is the extremely poorly thought out design of the buttons on the unit. Not only is it nigh on impossible to read the legend by each one, the plethora of buttons mean it is also pretty hard to remember the position of one you consider to be important. The two most important buttons are the joystick and selection buttons which are naturally next to the main display (logical), however, the third most important button is the menu which should have been clustered with these other two. Instead its the second one tucked away on the second row (pretty useless if the light is not bright enough to read the minuscule text next to the button). The remote control doesn’t fair too well either with almost unreadable grey on dark grey buttons (dumb). Don’t these people use their own products in normal environments?. Come ona recent firmware update means the revo supports alac files from the mac (over upnp/dlna) as well as high quality bbc listen again content.

Fantastic sound, great old school design.

A very satisfied customer. . I have been completely satisfied with the revo supersystem. Apart from the excellent audio reproduction and extensive facilities, it was truly simple to setup. I would highly recommend this system. Here are the specifications for the Revo Supersystem Music Player:

  • Enter your model number
    to make sure this fits.
  • Stereo 80 Watt Output Power with dedicated Subwoofer
  • DAB, DAB+, FM and Internet Radio (24,000+ stations)
  • DLNA Audio Streaming from PC, Mac or NAS Drive
  • Spotify Connect Enabled – Access over 20 Million Tracks
  • Bluetooth Wireless Streaming with aptX Technology

A really super hifi system. . I actually was interested by the superconnect at first but i chose to give the supersystem a try mainly because this is a true stereo system. I was a bit affraid to put this amount of money for a ‘table radio’ but i am happy to have make this choice now. This is a special device for my hifi installation right now. I even use it with a pre-amplified vinyl turntable pluged in the aux input. Man, the sound is very impressive for such a small unit. Since one week i have tested several types of music with it and i can say that the sound is powerful and deep. What i especialy appreciate is that it gives a very neutral reproduction of the sound. I set the egalizer up this way : bass = 0, treble = 2 which is a mix of the jazz and rock presets and boom that’s it. By the way, i am a french customer.

Great design, sound and materials. I use the internet radio and spotify which work perfect.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • A really super Hifi system.
  • Hard to beat for £399!
  • A Very Satisfied Customer.

Versatile, wonderful looking, stunning sounding current market leader. I bought this locally so i could check it in person rather than from amazon but as it is less known item i am happy to review here for the use of others. As a what hifi winner unit we would hope it is good quality and indeed it is. It has a large, room filling sound with high level of amplification including a sub-woofer. The sound mix can be controlled with separate treble, bass and switchable loudness in the user setting. It has a balanced sound that avoids bass boom. I strongly recommend turning loudness off immediately as it then opens up the sound to a significant degree. The features are great with dab, internet radio, aux in, network playing over wifi, fm, spotify bluetooth apt-x and usb plus an optical input (using with chromecast audio). It includes a nice chunky remote and top volume button. It will be better to download the undok app on your device and use this to control the item than do it entirely via the remote.

At £400 its a great price delivered. Just received my refurbished unit. 1st impressions are top quality. I’m not an audiophile but compared to my pure mono unit its replacing it beats it hands down. At £400 its a great price delivered. I’d use the on-line app to store your favourite internet stations. Not used it on any other mode yet. Remote control is solid just like the main piece of kit.

Pros:- superb looking piece of kit: it is looking grand in my living room- connectivity (physical and non physical)- sound is really great for voices: very clear, very enjoyable to listen to radio shows and podcasts- easy to use and configurecons:- remote control is huge and heavy. I don’t understand why it was designed that way when the kit itself is so slick- remote control interferes with my lg tv (and vice versa).

I bought the black face with walnut outer. Admittedly it is expensive but it sounds great and the features are spot on. You can get any staion from around the world as well as linking it up via bluetooth to any one of your tablets or mobile phone. The features are really intuitive to use. I also like the fact it is a uk firm.

Roberts Radio Stream217 DAB/FM/Wi-Fi Internet Radio : Lots of very good featutes. The best value Roberts i have ever

Could do with double the number of station preset buttons (12 easily do-able on the fascia) and integration of presets across the sources, to make favourite station selection less fiddly. Also the preset buttons are flat and undifferentiated, as opposed to raised or dimpled, which would make station selection easier, especially for the disabled. Reception is ok – fm is a bit hissy, but better quality than even dab+ or internet (a function of the latter platforms’ poor compression algorithms). Set sound quality is only above-average. The speakers are peaky, the cabinet could be ported for better bass, the eq presets are useless, there should be a midrange eq adjustment to complement the boom and tizz bass and treble. Or roberts could spend £2 more on better speakers and make this unit sound more balanced – like my 1970s b&o, grundig and panasonic sets. The unit feels more like an £80 set than £150 and is more cheaply made than the similar, older ecologic 4.

Great radio got the lot clear sound and wi-fi as well.

Roberts Radio Stream217 DAB/FM/Wi-Fi Internet Radio with Music Player and Spotify Connect – Black

  • Enter your model number
    to make sure this fits.
  • DAB/DAB+/FM RDS and Wi-Fi internet radio
  • 30 station pre-sets
  • Two alarms and aux-in
  • Headphone socket
  • Six position equaliser and separate bass and treble

Dab can’t i test until i’m going to norway.

Nice design, easy to operate, good sound.

Excellent quality and service.

Roberts Radio Stream217 DAB/FM/Wi-Fi Internet Radio with Music Player and Spotify Connect – Black : Good sound quality, easy to naviage menus and configure. . Good signal, easy to tune the stations in. My main reason for the purchase was to have a dabs radio alarm clock. All the other extras like internet radio was a bonus. The manual is well written and easy to follow. Set up the wireless connection in minutes. This model also comes with a network port at the back for those who have network ports in their home. Having the pod casts was also a surprise, cookery in particular for our invalid mother who has no mobility and a lot of time on her hands to sit and listen to these.

The buttons light up – a silly thing i know, but it’s quite pleasing to see and looks a bit like a spaceship control panel 🙂 the buttons only light up ithe radio is on. The radio has a handle – very useful – and sturdy. It is adjustable in that it folds away. The volume button is a round turn button – so turn one way for more volume and vice versa. Much better than buttons you have to press up and on to adjust volume. If you lose wi-fi connection and you were listening to internet radio, when it re-connects, the radio re-starts the station that was playing, so no re-tuning. The sound is very good and not tinny at all. There is an equalizer but it’s not very effective. I have only been using it for internet radio (indian stations) so cannot comment on other stations or reception. The general interface of the radio is quite easy to get used to and remember.

The best value roberts i have ever. It is very attractive to look at. The best value roberts i have ever bought.

Revo SuperConnect – Multi-Format Deluxe Table Radio – Sounds good – as it should for the money

Seems wonderful, and the seem top quality is the very best i have listened to on any radio.

I very own a pair of the pure dab radios, together with the substantial conclude v2 which they no longer make (it could file exhibits to sd card). The revo superconnect is a serious bit of kit and the interface aspect is a great deal improved than the pure product which are sluggish by comparison. Dab sound high quality is outstanding and there are possibilities to build your possess equaliser location, which is seriously value accomplishing, particularly as it can noticeably raise bass response around the default options. Internet radio works incredibly properly and i did not have a difficulty at all, was appealing to pay attention to some of the rock stations in california – even though sound high-quality is really dependent on the station you pick out. I do like how the data button will give you all this details, like a dependability score. When i plugged this in for the initially time it questioned for my community password for wifi then proceeded to quickly update the firmware to a newer model which will work extremely perfectly. Its pricey, but if you value radio then there are so numerous choices to retrieve fm, dab and internet stations devoid of substantially user conversation. Excellent sound high quality way too, and it goes fairly loud to fill a dwelling space, or bedroom with no a dilemma. I do propose you engage in with the equaliser to get the most from it, as the default settings are fairly inadequately established up.

Sounds good – as it really should for the dollars. Contacted the corporation and they despatched a new one particular, but i would somewhat the unit had all its bits in the initially place. Sounds excellent – as it should for the cash. It utilizes the exact same working procedure as roberts radios. How do they get that walnut to bend about a ninety degree angle?. Performs nicely with spotify, but not positive spotify performs nicely with android phones. Product is speedy to boot and improve from dab to internet etc, display resolution is very good.

I have experienced the superconnect for about three months now and i am quite happy with it. This was the second unit i have experienced as i had a problem with the initial a single. The bluetooth connectivity was not operating but amazon have been pretty great and despatched out a new just one straight away. The audio is brilliant and considering that it is just 1 speaker it really is fantastic. I really like the way you can connect to any device which include streaming from your pcs community so you can participate in all the tunes from your laptop, also you can get so a lot of internet stations. It definitely is well worth the funds.

The revo which has to be one of the best purchases i have made for some time. After spending many months researching internet/dab radios i finally went ahead and purchased the revo which has to be one of the best purchases i have made for some time. The sound quality is exceptional, build quality and packaging on a par with apple and its so easy to use. Would recommend this to anybody – i went for the piano black and silver model (which they don’t sell in john lewis) and whilst a little more expensive, looks stunning.

Reviews from purchasers :

New firmware update adds internet sprint streams. Wonderful radio with excellent seem, today’s firmware update (sixteen/9/sixteen) has enabled mpeg-dash streaming for internet radio, now i am not confined to 128kbps mp3 structure for bbc stations, i have a good unrestricted internet relationship and all bbc streams are now 320kbps aac, also would seem to be an enhanced buffer giving much less dropouts on internet (audiophile jazz was a bit prevent & go right before).

I bought a refurbished radio immediate from revo for £199 with some vouchers i got from my birthday. I might under no circumstances listened to of revo prior to and was intensely swayed by a evaluate in the sunday moments – i was on the lookout for some thing to switch my current dab radio and bose sounddock which could also participate in music saved on my laptop. This does all this and much more – which include entry to thousands of internet radio web pages too. Established up was a doddle other than the registration course of action for the internet radio portal which proved aggravating owing to server challenges on the radio portal – nothing at all genuinely to do with revo but my email messages and mobile phone phone calls on the subject matter have been however answered quickly and patiently by them. The audio excellent loses very little in comparison to my bose technique which says a lot – and although obtain to my computer stored songs collection is a tiny clunky there is a look for facility which assists a good deal. The internet radio is a bonus – a although i could not obtain a random vancouver radio station that myself and my spouse cherished when we holidayed there i did obtain it on the tuned in app on my cellular phone and listened to it as a result of the revo by means of bluetooth – dilemma sorted. All in all a excellent product or service which i would carefully suggest to anybody into songs.

Sangean WFR-28C DAB : Well worth buying

Nicely happy with this, fantastic seem high quality specially when i place it through my external amp but the inbuilt speaker is no slouch thinking about its dimension, set up was pretty straightforward but you do require to read the handbook adequately, i have even now not made use of all of its attributes of which there are quite a few but all i have employed are outstanding. I did intend to go for the roberts variation but for the rate this just one has far additional to provide. Negatives:upset with the electric power provide, the two pin version equipped is effective alright but needs a shaver adaptor to operate in british isles sockets, this would make a relatively flimsy arrangement i cant look to trust. Batteries : can take four massive torch sort batteries, i acquired duracell rechargeable’s, fantastic batteries but at £10 a pair they really should be. You will find not a lot house to healthy them in though, it requirements a little bit of power, but at the time equipped i figured i would not require to alter them for the life span of the radio. The battery everyday living on wifi is not fantastic but enough for my demands. The spotify possibility is alright for those who have a membership but with all the tunes on provide by means of the internet, not for me, the cost to be part of in my belief is considerably as well large. I would have offered five stars for this but for the ability offer, but i would still suggest it to other folks.

Yet another high-quality radio from sangean that does not disappoint. . I to start with came into get hold of with sangean back in the early 1990’s by pure prospect when i was investigating radio manufacturers in asia. What intrigued me was that some perfectly recognised brand name names of the time applied sangean as their chosen preference to manufacture radios for them. Even then i was amazed by sangean’s consideration to element and the excellent of their radios particularly by their innovation and the technologies utilized. Around the ensuing years i have not been unhappy by any of the sangean items i have acquired which include two saisho/matsui badged radios from dixons with fm/lw/mw/sw bands for the duration of the late 1980’s and mid 1990’s, the sangean prd-four (my to start with rds radio with pll) and the sangean ats 909 (earth band radio with pll – synthesized receiver, the radio owning both of those sb & ssb band furthermore rds on fm) which i still use nowadays whilst internet radio is getting more than. I also have a roberts gemini rd 49 (my initially dab radio) and now i just wished to improve to an internet radio. It was a no brainer to go for a different sangean solution and i am quite pleased with my invest in of the wfr-28c, and it is perfectly worth the investment decision. As the preceding reviewer djjje commented, this radio has the identical software interface as the roberts stream 107, but has far more capabilities these kinds of as an aux input, a line out and a usb input. By the way the roberts stream 107 utilizes “aa” batteries while the sangean wfr-28c works by using 4 size “d” batteries. Djjje also mentions that the radio arrives with a european two-pin voltage adapter and so has to plug it in via a 2pin-3pin shaver adapter.

Exceptional high-quality and so many functions.

I’ve had this radio for less than a week, but imagined i might create my to start with impressions, i’ll update this evaluate at the later date. I was heading to invest in the roberts stream 107 but i uncovered the sangean which is a great deal better for the exact selling price. So considerably i’m fairly amazed, it appears to be and feels like a nicely developed good quality radio. Seem quality is pretty superior, it just frequently is effective quite nicely on fm, dab and internet. A person point that will have to be pointed out is that this radio wont at the moment engage in bbc podcasts (podcasts from other stations i have attempted get the job done fantastic although). The bbc lately changed their podcast audio format to something named hls-aac, this radio just isn’t suitable with that format. I failed to acquire this radio to listen to bbc podcasts but i would like the possibility of getting ready to ought to i chose. I wrote an electronic mail to sangean to complain and they replied indicating generally that the hls-aac protocol wont ever be supported by this radio, but the bbc will soon be migrating to one more protocol called dash, which this radio will aid.

Revo Super Signal Deluxe DAB Table Radio with DAB/DAB+/FM Reception, Digital Alarm and Bluetooth Wireless Streaming : I reckon jonathan meades would love it, say no more. Beautifully made, a great sense of solidity & weight – and that’s just the stupendous remote. In a time when flimsy disposable cheap manufacturing is abound this wonderful hulking brutalist of a radio, an uncompromising, unapologetic beast cloaked in walnut stands as a beacon. Everything about it suggests quality, from the design of the box it comes in, to the feel of the controls & buttons. Most importantly the sound is superbly clear & rich. The reception is perfect & it was an absolute breeze to set up, the bluetooth took about three seconds to link to my laptop, & i’m utterly useless with technology. I was weighing up the revo against the ruark, which is clearly an excellent radio, but consider the revo to be an altogether more substantial unit, it just appears to have a greater presence. An absolutely terrific radio & a resplendent object.

I was not sure when affordable dabs are about £30, should i put £££ to this one particular?. Now i have been listening to it for 1 month, there is absolutely no regret. Think about it a lengthy phrase investment decision, radio is not just background any much more, it tends to make you pause, enjoy and think. Yet another additionally position is the bluetooth speaker characteristic – significantly much better than my pc speakers. I was not a hi-fi fan but when you have listened to the excellent sound, then you can straight away inform what is great and what is actually undesirable now. All the emotional phrases in audio magazines quickly make feeling. Thanks revo for these types of a stunning piece of get the job done.

If give it 5 stars if my apple iphone didn’t require to be suitable future to it when streaming bluetooth. I use it far more for the radio as result.

A bit large for the bedside table but you get employed to it, very good software program and a magnificent seem. . Sounds amazing, so much bass from 1 box i experienced to turn it down in the equaliser but even without having executing that the new music top quality sounded superb and the speech was crystal apparent. Truly wonderful seem to it (definitely, depending on style) various colour combinations are out there but i selected the walnut as it went very well with my decor and it truly is a actually attractive searching wood. Anything i didn’t like about it was the price tag, i would have supplied it 5 stars if it was a acceptable charge. It is very frankly ridiculously overpriced, stating that, i’m not sending it back again because it appears incredible and seems superb so it’s possible they’ve priced it at suckers like me?make absolutely sure you test the measurements while, physically this is not dainty (but not as large as its huge brothers)i love it, i just desire it expense much less.

Very good audio, good excellent and effortless to use.

Way too bad no dab for my place.

Good, astounding seem, all features operate nicely. I looked all over for ages for a dab radio that also has an alarm clock, there’s not several out there on the sector that have excellent opinions. This one is a bit on the dear facet for what i was following, but revo have a fantastic rep and it can also be employed as a bluetooth speaker. It appears to be pretty clever and is really quick to use, the preset stations are easy to established, as are the alarms which have a lot of unique configurations for diverse days of the week, quantity, station and many others. The sounds is crystal apparent and the bass is good, i was shocked the bluetooth functionality is so clear, i discover bluetooth speakers under no circumstances really reside up to their expectation but this a person copes admirably with all sorts of tunes, pop, rock, steel and classical streamed from my cell phone. I experienced a couple of troubles receiving my bluetooth device to stream appropriately when i first established it up, but emailed revo guidance and they experienced a swift reaction with a basic solution. If it experienced any negatives i would say the cheapest setting for the brightness of the display is not pretty low and it felt pretty vibrant to get started off with. The remote is also a bit significant, i have a sensation that will be still left in a attract, but it was not actually desired for me in any case. Will not scrimp on value, would recommend to everyone.

Is effective completely with amazon echo dot. This radio is wonderful as it is a super signal picks up all your dab stations and performs correctly with amazon echo dot like all the distant features so no require to invest in an added amount of money wonderful seem a excellent all-rounder extremely proposed.
