Which DAB radio is best for you?

Help & Advice, Product Reviews, Roberts Radio

Want to treat yourself to a new DAB radio but don’t know where to begin? Luckily for you, we’ve compiled this guide on the best DAB radios around. At Snellings, we highly recommend the Roberts Radio range, providing lasting, quality sound. Below, we walk you through our top three Roberts Radios to help you decide what DAB radio is best for you.

Roberts Radio has been producing quality audio products since 1932, intending to change the listening experience for every customer. To them, it’s about how the audio sounds and how the overall device delivers this, ultimately providing a stylish touch to your home and making your day a little bit better every time you turn the radio on. Every Roberts product is designed to be “seen, touched and heard”. Taking inspiration from 1950s design to modern collaborations with artists of the 21st century, Roberts Radio has been a household name offering the very best of sound for nearly a century.

Coming in third place in our top recommendations is the Roberts Radio Play 20 DAB+ FM RDS Digital Radio with Colour Display. This compactly built radio lets you take both DAB+ and FM radio on the go with you. Wherever your destination, the hardy Play 20 features rubber bumpers making it the perfect travelling companion for a festival or just a spot of gardening outdoors. Lightweight and available in a range of colours, the Play 20 is a great musical accompaniment to have at your side.

Featuring up to 20 stations, you can easily switch between your favourites with total ease. This is mainly due to the full-colour display and simple design, making navigation as easy as pie. Although the Play 20 may be small, it sure makes up for this with a wide range of essential features, including digital and analogue listening options, a built-in battery charger, a headphone socket, and a lock switch. What more could you ask for from a radio?

Slim and sleek, it’s not hard to see why the Play 20 is a crowd favourite. If you’re looking for a DAB radio perfect for quickly packing away or fitting into a rucksack, this Roberts Radio is the way to go, making you the sure favourite of your next camping or hiking trip.

Our second favourite Roberts Radio? The Roberts Radio RD70PC Roberts Revival FM/DAB/DAB+ Retro Radio, of course! This retro radio pays homage to the classic designs of the 1950s; with 6 colours to choose from, you’re spoilt for choice! And, with an additional 22 presets, you can tune into your favourite stations at any time with total ease and enjoyment. With this Roberts Retro Radio, you’ll never be late for the school run or work again. By setting the alarm feature, you can choose to wake up to a standard buzzer or the radio, kicking off your day in the best possible way.

This well-built radio is acoustically handcrafted, giving it an authentic vintage feel with none of the vintage problems you might expect to find with older devices true to the period. With additional Bluetooth connectivity, you get all the benefits of modern audio at the flick of a switch. Whether you’re looking to listen to your favourite podcast or album, Bluetooth streaming makes it easy to connect to your device every time. Looking, sounding and connecting better than ever is at the heart of the Revival RD70, an improved rendition of the classic Revival, a family favourite.

The Revival model has been a firm preference amongst music lovers since 1956, and did you know it’s modelled on the shape of Harry Roberts’ wife’s handbag? A true 50s homage, with gold accents and minimalist shape, this popular wooden cabinet radio is one of our bestsellers for plenty of good reasons. It would also make the perfect gift for the vintage lover or music aficionado in your life.

The Roberts Radio Stream 67 Smart Audio System is our top recommendation for powerful sound in one compact package, offering everything you’d want and expect from a DAB radio and even more. The Stream 67 has all your bases covered when it comes to playing music. Delivering rich, smooth music in a small but powerful system, this two-way stereo offers a full range and refined vocal quality. With a 5-position equaliser plus additional bass, mid-range and treble controls, you can work with your new smart audio system to find the right sound.

The high level of detail sets this device apart from the rest. Whilst Roberts are known for their commitment to vintage devices, the Stream 67 provides a breath of fresh air whilst remaining loyal to vintage-inspired design. Set to pave the way for the future of radio, this impressive device is also voice control compatible with other smart devices such as Amazon Alexa, perfect for when you’re juggling mealtimes or work-from-home responsibilities.

The system can also be controlled through the impressive UNDOK app. This free app is developed exclusively by Roberts Radio, offering you complete control of your streaming music as well as sound settings such as equaliser and bass. As a smart device, it is also compatible with popular streaming services such as Spotify, Deezer, Amazon Prime Music and Tidal. This makes the Stream 67 able to play almost anything … pretty impressive if you ask us. It’s also CD and DLNA compatible, making it all the more comprehensive in terms of streaming capability.

DLNA (Digital Living Network Alliance) makes it easy to find additional devices on your home network. Once connected, you can stream easily from them via your Wi-Fi. Whether streaming through your PC, Mac, or NAS drive, the Stream 67 can handle it all, compatible with a wide variety of audio files, including MP3, WMA, FLAC, AAC and ALAC.

An additional little perk is the USB socket. Connecting to any USB device and working with the same range of files as the DLNA streamer, simply plug in your smartphone and unwind. The Stream 67 can charge your devices for you, making it the ideal dock for both playback and charging. You’ll also find fitted headphone and AUX sockets, ideal if you’re interested in connecting an MP3 player full of your favourite tunes.

We’d expect nothing less from Roberts Radio as they continue to lead the way in DAB radio. If you’re looking for a new radio, why not take our advice and choose one of our top DAB recommendations?
