The Roberts Duologic is a simple and reasonably priced DAB FM radio that's easy to use. Althogh it's short on features it includes a one-touch access button for quick access to your favourite DAB or FM station and an input socket tso you can listen to an MP3 player through the radio's speakers, but is it good value for money?

Sound quality issues
Like the design, especially the built in battery charger, line in, separate knobs for volume and tuning rather than the all too common buttons. However the sound quality is disappointing, sounding boomy and indistinct, certainly making Radio 4 hard to hear at times. Other Roberts radios in the house are much clearer.
Features a Line In socket as well as a built in battery charger
For those who use iPod, iPhone or any other portable device with a headphone socket, the best feature of this device (apart from the built in battery charger) is that it features a line in socket! And it works superbly well too. The Which? review would do well to make more mention of this feature. It's the reason I bought it. No other issues to mention. Sound quality is good, though it is a radio so don't expect hi-fi quality. it can be loud, it's pretty portable, well built and battery life is superb. So all in all I'd recommend this radio.
We use this as a kitchen radio and it is great. I wouldn't use if for hi fi but it is quite capable of penetrating the noise of the kettle, for sport and talk radio it is ideal.We have re-chargable batteries in it. The fact that it re-charges as you go makes it very flexible, no need to swap batteries or worry about the re-chargables being flat when you need to unplug it. Along with the handle space at the back it makes it ideal to take into the garden or let the cricket follow me round the house. No issues with signal but I do live in a city with a good DAB reception.
