Roberts Radio Roberts Blutune 65 DAB/DAB – Not bad but not brilliant.

I had noticed this at my local waitrose shop and was ready for the january product sales. Obtained it at a amazing price tag, great item, effortless to established up, sounds excellent, ordered it on boxing working day and it arrived the future day, wonderful support. I have to say that even at its primary cost of all over £170 this would nevertheless have been value for income, so sale value of £99.

First arrived across this in a cottage i rented, now i very own just one. Easy to use, seems good, and seems to be lovely.

Wonderful sound quality, straightforward to established up and use and it works seriously perfectly with my apple iphone 6 to engage in music.Here are the specifications for the Roberts Radio Roberts Blutune 65 DAB/DAB:

  • Enter your model number
    to make sure this fits.
  • Bluetooth audio streaming from iPhone or smartphone
  • Acoustically tuned cabinet for sound quality
  • Multi-function remote control

Top quality radio – worth every penny. As a speaker this is very good indeed. It is not quite up there with bose/wharfdale/b&o etc but it is nonetheless a high quality speaker that gives good sound in a reasonable size bedroom. I’ve tested the dab, analogue radio and bluetooth and it provides a true sound with decent bass and treble in each. The various settings (rock, concert etc) are a bit gimmicky but it is worth spending a little time on the sound settings if you want hi quality listening. As an everyday radio/alarm it is extremely good. It has all the features you need: two alarms and very good options when you set the alarms. It is quite big so you ought to check the dimensions against your bedside table if that is where you intend to put it. The features are really useful. I like the three setting dimmer, the ipod dock, usb and aux inputs and the compact but responsive remote.

This is a fantastic dab radio, sound is superior and it is a actually neat wanting radio.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Not bad but not brilliant.
  • Good but not perfect
  • Great product, endorsed by royal household.

Great top quality sound and powerful dab reception but complcated established up for alarms.

Straight out of the box, the bluetune appears to be a minimal classier than your typical clock radio. It really is lined in delicate-touch, matt black leatherette, which contrasts nicely with the wonderfully laid-out handle panel on the best of the device. Slide the ‘open’ swap and a sprung major-panel softly opens to reveal an apple lightning (apple iphone 5 type) connector. This has sufficient movement in it to ensure that you might be not going to snap possibly the plug or the socket in your i-machine if it gets accidentally knocked. The lid doubles as a assist, with a rubberised bar at the best. It appears to be like really cool without a doubt with a black apple iphone sat on it. As you would assume, your i-device will cost from the bluetune. The initial time you change on the bluetune 65, you will be attempting to operate out how to established the time. Just before you handle to do the job it out nevertheless, it will have picked up the time via its radio receiver.

Rather disappointing provided that it was a birthday current for. The initial blutune 65 i received simply did not work out of the box very disappointing presented that it was a birthday present for my spouse. However i ordered a replacement and was pleased that it came the future working day via primary. Original impressions are superior. The merchandise will work :-), has a good rich sound excellent to it and is rather uncomplicated and uncomplicated to run. Bluetooth website link up operates well with my cellphone. The unit is fairly large as other individuals have commented so bear that in thoughts if you might be looking to position it bedside. Ours is sitting fortunately in the kitchen. Offered 4 stars because of initial damaging expertise and since it is nevertheless quite new.

Mostly great sound and easy. I was wanting for a dab radio for the kitchen area that wouldn’t consider up substantially place, but would sound excellent. This roberts dab is quick to use, automobile tunes speedily and has excess attribute this sort of as bluetooth and an ipod dock with lightning connector if you want to participate in songs from other equipment. I think as a bedside clock the buttons may be a little bit fiddly when making an attempt to flip off in the early morning, but for the kitchen area its a great searching and sounding machine with clean up lines and a fairly smaller footprint. Update: i’ve identified when utilizing a bluetooth link to enjoy songs from my mobile phone, the speakers cannot take care of the bass signal and ‘pop’ by any contemporary audio at a reasonable quantity. The only answer has been to flip the quantity pretty low which is not ideal when you want to take pleasure in your tunes.

Does what it claims and sound is fantastic.

I purchased it to go in my dwelling space, on a desk by the couch, up coming to the phone. I have obtained a black bt wireless router which stands neatly on major of this radio so all my comms are in place below. The sound high-quality is extremely very good, expressing that i only use it for listening to radio 4 nonetheless i tried the music stations just to verify, and also played out my 2005 ipod by way of it (by way of a headhone jack cable) which worked very well and sounded fantastic. There is a good docking station for more contemporary ipods / phones. I would not use this as my sole means of participating in music from the ipod though as i have received greater speakers for that. It’s a very good facility to have however e. For listening to mp3 audiobooks.

    I took a long time to choose something that fitted the bill in terms of a dab radio and something that had bluetooth. There weren’t many things that ticked all the boxes for me but this certainly did. I wasn’t sure at first because some reviews had said that the sound quality wasn’t great. Perfect dab radio, bluetooth speaker, ipod speaker and fm radio – comes with remote control which is very handy. Compact enough to have at the side of the bed and has a dimmer option so that the clock doesn’t illuminate your bedroom during the night. Handy to charge my iphone on too without the need for cables, plugs etc.

    1. Keeping it simple for the beeb. Very well put together, functional with great sound. I’d looked at the sonos/wifi speakers but the process of connecting to listen to bbc radio was looking like a pain in the proverbial. This radio means i have to press the on button. Bluetooth gives you all the internet radio and tv sound you’ll need for a non techy household.
