Digital radios: Compare features & prices Roberts Classic DAB review Back to Results

The Roberts Classic DAB can be powered by either the mains or batteries and comes with a carry strap. It's Roberts' most affordable DAB radio yet - giving you access to digital radio stations for under £40. Sub-£50 radios generally produce disappointing sound quality in our tests, however, so we were interested to see how the Classic DAB measures up.
