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.

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.

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.
