I have two WM201's which I have owned for nigh on two years. Both have been back to Roberts for repair. Both have severe intermittent problems.
I use them in France on a LAN running though the electrical mains. The technician at Roberts doesn't like this but it works for both my other two internet radios [Orange 'LiveRadio' and Scott RXi 400WL] both of which have worked flawlessly for eighteen months - both via WiFi and over the LAN!
Both my WM-201's periodically give up the ghost. They... (read more)

I own several Roberts radios already and love their design and sound quality, so when I saw the WM-201 provided internet radio AND allowed me to stream FLAC files from my PC, I had to get it.
Within minutes of unboxing it I had it talking to my wi-fi and playing internet radio.
I love the way you can select radio stations by country, so it's quite fun to have a bit of a "world tour".
Streaming music from the PC however was a bit trickier. To be fair to Roberts, the issue was Microsofts... (read more)

The Roberts WM201 has excellent build quality, great little remote control, superb sound and very easy to set up and use. As an experienced 'internet radio' user, AE, BT, Magicbox IMP, Blik, Pure, Logitech and Ministry of Sound etc, I can honestly say that the Roberts WM201 is the best I have used.
That's not to say that it doesn't have it's problems but overall it is a superb way of listening to the world through the internet and streaming your own PC or MAC based music collection.

I have used the Bush TR2015 internet radio for about 2 years. Internet radios are brilliant for accessing all of the BBC's listen again programmes (now called i Player) In fact we have 3 Bush TR2015 radios in the house.
When one of the Bush radios packed-up I took the opportunity to buy the Roberts WM201.
This radio is beautifully built and lovely to look at - everything enclosed in a piano-black (wooden ?) case. The display looks great - larger than I was used to on the Bush radio which... (read more)

The Roberts WM201 is very recommended! Best bit of kit i've bought in years! this thing out performs anything on the market. the sound quality from the 2x5w speakers (witch i was VERY concerned about) is amazing for any good sized room and sounds great with no distortion. it connects to the internet in minutes and picks up thousands of stations (unlike DAB) and your able to add your favourites direct to the radio. you've really got to see it to believe it. I am going to buy another one for... (read more)

Completely pointless unless you want some radio stations that are un-available by terrestrial means. (read more)

Roberts don't do 'cheap' - they do quality of design, finish and reliability. So the Roberts WM201 is good value. Plugged in the mains, ethernet cable to my modem, switched on and played. No problem. Listen to over 800 channels from UK alone (works via reciva.com). (read more)
