Roberts WM201 review


This Roberts radio is actually a streaming audio receiver that can play files stored on your PC wherever you are in the house.

Maybe video didn't kill the radio star. A capable wireless audio streamer in a cabinet that's built to last.

The front of a car, an air-conditioning unit, one of those heaters your gran has by her feet… the Roberts WM201 certainly makes a statement. It's just unfortunate that statement is “I have no aesthetic sense whatsoever”. Luckily we're not so shallow to...

Powerful sound. One-knob control

Unimaginative car grille styling

The Roberts WM201 makes us go all radio ga ga and radio goo. Whatever that means.

Beautifully designed and easy to use with the one control. Relatively easy to set up, I thought I would have trouble entering the long WEP key, but the radio worked first time.

None really. Sometimes the signal drops out and the radio has to rebuffer but my broadband speed is very slow so no real problem.

The internet connecting facilities are comprehensive, BBC listen again works particularly well. I also got it to stream music from my Windows Home Server with no problems. Set up was reasonably easy. Just make sure that your router is reasonably close...

The only input is via the rotary dial on the front. The supplied remote control adds a little flexibility but entering your WEP key is a bit of a chore, and if you are using a long WPA key you will be there all day. It does store the key for future...

Roberts WM201


Outsatanding build. Excellent sound. A really classy product! As an expat it is fantastic to have all the radio programs I want to hear from all over the world, Also it is the perfect bedroom radio, with alarms, programable sleep times. Just fantastic!

There is only one problem. I suffer from power cuts here. Twice now it has resulted in the radio not working. I was about to send it back, when I first tried resetting to factory settings and re-programming it (a pain, as with all internet radios)....
