Roberts Stream 202 review

£143
Price when reviewed

Roberts’ latest compact radio has magnificent sound quality and offers an impressive compendium of analogue and digital audio features, with an RDS FM tuner, DAB, Wi-Fi internet radio and streaming audio all squeezed in. Internet radio streams and podcasts buffer quickly, and the Stream 202 has no problems hanging on to a Wi-Fi signal. But it’s not perfect: there’s no remote control and, while the menus are designed sensibly, having to browse with the large control wheel on top makes finding podcasts and stations frequently cumbersome. The radio also feels cheap and plasticky, and text smears, rather than scrolls, across its LCD display. But with such gorgeous sound quality and a reasonable price tag to compensate, we’re prepared to overlook its weaknesses.
