Roberts Stream 93i Review



The Roberts Stream93i DAB/DAB+/FM/ Internet Stereo Sound System with 3 Way Speaker System is a great piece if technology.

It offers DAB/DAB+,FM,WiFi,Internet Radio, Music Player ad Spotify Connect.  The sound quality is surprisingly good from such a compact device.

Looking at the list of features:-

DAB and FM radio are pretty self explanatory, you can listen to conventional radio broadcasts with the ability to have 5 preset channels on DAB and FM using the keys but you can save 40 presets on DAB and FM that can be selected using the built in screen.

Internet Radio required connection to the internet, with the Stream 93i you have two options, you can connect the radio to your router using a cable, or you can connect to wi-fi.  Once connected you can browse an online database of internet radio stations.  In addition to this you can access the database from a web browser and add your own stations if required.  As with DAB and FM you can have 40 presets.

Music Player enables you to listen to music stored on your PC or via a USB device plugged into the back of the radio.

Spotify Connect allows you to play spotify selections to be played under the control of your iPad, iPhone or Android device, requires a Spotify Premium Account.

Additional Features

  • ability to set two alarms set to either buzzer or radio.
  • Sleep timer set from 15 to 120 mins
  • Equalizer with 8 presets and the ability to create your own pofile
  • Headphone socket
  • Aux in for playing from external device.
  • Remote Control supplied with the sound system
  • Free app for android and iOS which allows you full control of the sound system via wi-fi

In an ideal world it would be nice to have Bluetooth to connect to wireless headphones however this is easily fixed by using a Bluetooth transceiver like ESYNiC AD2P Bluetooth Music Transmitter Sender/ Stereo Audio Dongle, plug it into the headphone socket and you are able to listen via Bluetooth and control the sound system over wi-fi from your tablet or smartphone.

If you are looking for a flexible, controllable sound system I would strongly recommend taking a look at the Roberts Stream 93i.
