Roberts Radio Classic R9954

If you’re searching for a reliable and straightforward analogue radio, without digital functionality, then you’ll love the Roberts R9954. It’s not the most impressive or mind-blowing portable radio that we’ve ever seen, but it looks good, it sounds good, and it performs surprisingly well.



Unlike other radios designed for use on-the-go, the Roberts Radio Classic R9954 doesn’t sound tinny or distorted at higher volumes. The only real problem you’ll have with performance is figuring out how to tune into your preferred stations. The tuning dial isn’t as sensitive as it could be, which makes it hard to find new things to listen to if you don’t stick to the same station all the time. With nothing but markers to help you find the right stations, you could end up getting frustrated.

On the plus side, besides the above, you should find the Roberts Classic R9954 pretty easy to use. You won’t need to worry about navigating through complicated digital menus as you would with most modern portable radios, making this a great choice for older people.
