"review of roberts dreamtime"

Received in good time and in good order. Initial setting up was a bit of a trial. You really need to read the instructions very carefully else you can get confused. On following the setting-up instructions the radio only found about 10 DAB stations and none of them were BBC. Fishing about in the manual eventually resolved that problem, but it could have been clearer. The 12 buttons are somewhat small and sometimes confusingly multi-functional. The four brightness settings on the display go from very bright to off, the third dimmest setting is just about right, but if you turn off the display it is a bit of a grope to find the button to switch it on again in the dark. A good point though is that most of the buttons do not function unless the radio is actually on, so you can't go changing settings by mistake when poking about in the dark. Once set up and going the radio is excellent as you would expect from Roberts. It has good tone and I particularly like the slow volume increase when the alarm goes. No suddenly being woken by loud music or speech. As with many electronic gadgets, once you get used to the sequence of button pushes required to set the alarm, change station etc it is fine. I'm sure many people will find no problem at all, others like myself on the wrong side of 60 just take a little longer.
