Roberts Radio Sound 80
Roberts has made a name for itself with classic retro radios, but this latest 1980s model looks, well... decide for yourself

Depending on your point of view, the 1980s was a great time to be young or a decade of truly appalling music. Step forward Adam and the Ants, Spandau Ballet and Haircut 100. Not to mention footballer perms.

Now Roberts, purveyor of traditional radios to Her Majesty, has decided to revive the 80s with its Sound 80 DAB/FM radio.

It will, apparently, "transport you back to the 1980s with its fabulous retro styling" and deliver "superb sound" from its three-way speaker system with bass woofer. We're coming over all Ashes to Ashes already.

The acoustically-tuned cabinet is finished in gloss black, and you get 10 station presets as well as a clock and two multi-function alarms.

More after the break

There's also a headphone socket, line input for connecting your iPod or MP3 player, an AC adaptor and FM RDS station name display.

The Roberts Sound 80 is on sale now for £99.99. We'll let you decide whether it looks cool, retro or just plain old-fashioned. Now where's that Heaven 17 album...
