John Nowik, Horncastle

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
This is another e.g. of Roberts excelent quality radio's easy to use and a great sound quality that can be varied using the Bass & Treble control
Bad points:
Unfortunatly in keeping with most DAB radios and thr Roberts Gemini is no exception there is a problem with Local DAB reception in my area (Horncastle in Lincs). This means that the choice of stations is severly limited. However with such good sound quality on FM there is no need to go to DAB in order to improve the quality.

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Love DAB radio; this one was a present and I'm made up with sound quality and range of new stations available
It looks really stylish too.
Bad points:
I would prefer push button control for volume; just because I have my radio in the kitchen and sometimes (often) have floury or sticky hands; buttons get less messy I have found!
Display can be tricky to see if the radio is positioned above table top height. I suppose a display on the front face would help with this

good value for money

would like to store programmes to listen to later rather than just pause
also better info on screen - better and more controlable graphics
power and outputs better on side and front rather than back
