Both speakers offer a rich, powerful and clear sound, with multi-directional dual bass radiators. So you don't have to worry about these speakers being all looks and no substance.

However, the stylish looks are part of the perk with these speakers. If you ever owned one of the original leather-bound Roberts Radios you'll know the brand doesn't skimp on material quality.

The Roberts Beacons have been created using a specially selected UK-milled speaker cloth made in Yorkshire. The cloth has been created for optimal acoustic transparency to enable the fullest audio experience possible.
