Roberts STREAM218BLK, Smart Radio, Black
Take your streaming music with you, with the fully portable Roberts Stream 218.
Play it all
Roberts are a leading radio brand and the Stream 218 reinforces this with its quality DAB/FM tuner built-in. Yet it goes much further than this with a huge range of streaming options. Link by Wi-Fi and enjoy Internet Radio, Spotify Connect or direct music streaming. Bluetooth offers another wireless option, plus there’s a USB interface for plug-in access for your memory stick. Topped off by 3.5mm audio input and output, the Stream 218 truly has it all covered.
Bluetooth for quick and easy streaming
Bluetooth gives you a quick and easy wireless link, wherever you are – even outside. The beauty with Bluetooth music streaming is the ability to connect any smartphone or tablet and easily stream your stored music or favourite music services such as Spotify or Apple Music. As an Internet connection isn’t required, it works just as well in the garden as it does indoors.
Connect up to your home network by either Ethernet or the built-in Wi-Fi and you've access to a whole world of music. With a choice of thousands of radio stations from around the globe, there truly is something for everyone. With easy searching via genre, finding the stations you might like is simple and, thanks to a massive 120-preset memory with five favourites, recalling them is straight-forward, too.
This Roberts radio also has the advantage of offering Spotify Connect. Spotify Connect uses your existing Spotify account but seamlessly transfers it between sources. So, for example, you might be listening to Spotify on your mobile device then, when you arrive home, transfer it to the Roberts radio at the touch of a button! Wherever you use 3G or 4G, Wi-Fi or LAN, AirPlay, Bluetooth or UPnP, Spotify Connect simply keeps the music following - seamlessly.
Or stream your own music
Another great feature with the Roberts Stream 218 is the ability to stream your own music. Stream music stored on your PC, laptop, Mac or NAS drive for easy access to your digital music library. It handles a wide range of files, including MP3, WMA, FLAC and AAC.
Download the UNDOK smartphone app for your Apple or Android device and take control of the system with your smartphone or tablet. This offers easy remote control, without even having to be in the same room.
DAB and FM
As well as Internet radio and streaming, the Stream 218 also offers DAB and FM wavebands. DAB (Digital Audio Broadcasting) gives access to the widest range of stations in the UK, in crisp and clear digital sound quality. In case your favourite stations aren't available in DAB, then the Stream 218 is also equipped with an FM tuner. Boasting RDS for station naming, this is almost as easy to use as DAB and still provides great sound quality.
Great connectivity including USB
Yet another highlight with the Roberts Stream 218 is the USB socket. This connects to a USB media device and, like the streaming, works with a wide variety of file types, including MP3, WMA, FLAC and AAC. The Stream 218 has a headphone socket that can also be used as an audio output - perfect for plugging in a pair of more powerful active speakers or even your home hi-fi. There's also a 3.5mm AUX socket; ideal for connecting up your MP3 player or other music source.
Mains powered as standard, the Stream 218 can also be used with batteries. This makes the radio fully portable, letting you enjoy music in the garden or anywhere else when you’re out and about. Combined with the Bluetooth streaming, you can now access a near unlimited supply of music, where ever you are.
