The sparse interior comes as something of a shock. You can make DAB radios as small as a matchbox, but, when you're paying this much for a device with so few parts -- and one that doesn't pause, record or have an electronic programme guide -- you can't help but question its value for money.
Fortunately, the RD-60's beauty more than makes up for its lack of brains. This isn't the kind of radio you buy for what it does -- it's how it looks when it's doing it that tempts the cash from your pocket.
Roberts touts the RD-60's green credentials, claiming this low-power-drain device should run for 120 hours on a fresh set of batteries. If you'd rather run it on mains power, there's an adaptor in the box.
If you're a radio lover more in terms of the device than the medium, you owe it to yourself to add the beautiful Revival RD-60 to your line-up. It's not the best digital radio you can buy, and it's not even the best in Roberts' range, but it looks stunning. When you're buying a retro radio, that's what really counts.
