CD player with DAB radio – Roberts Zoombox2 Review

If your looking for a Cd player with dab radio then read our Roberts Zoombox2 Review

If you are someone who still clings to their old school music cds yet likes to listen to crystal clear digital radio dont fret – we have found a cd player with dab radio for you!

The Roberts Zoombox2 DAB/DAB+/FM/SD/USB Radio with CD Player is a great piece of kit, not only is it stylish with its smart white with silver trim style but it comes packed with a lot of features combining old technology with new.

Portability & Setup

This lightweight & compact radio (Approx Size (mm) 245 x 139 x 245) makes a great portable companion for moving around the many rooms of the house or even out in the garden (by using 6x C Batteries).

Its easy to setup and comes clear instructions and with 40 preset dab radio stations you are saved the time in having to set them up!  Other great features include the ability the play mp3/wma from music cds, sd card or even USB!

The display has a digital clock along with station preview and a zoom function to increase the display size making it easier viewing.

A simple dial on the front of the radio allows for easy switching from USB/SD/CD & DAB Radio and there is an AC adapter included with the radio if you wish to keep it plugged into the one room/location.

What it doesnt do..

One downside is that it doesn’t come with a remote control but that doesn’t annoy me as its easy to operate without one. It also doesn’t operate an iPod via the usb slot – but then again I bought it to listen to cds and DAB radio and not my iPod!


Overall this great little radio works well for both young and older generations with young people probably making use of the MP3 & DAB features while the older people like me can still listen to their cds! and being a Roberts brand its of course has crystal clear DAB and perfect sound on playback via cd/usb/sd card especially with the bass boost feature which adds depth to your music.

I think you will be hard pressed to find another great cd player with dab radio that will beat this one.
