Description

3.5" colour TFT touchscreen display

Whoever said radio was a dying format must feel like a right plank these days. Because thanks to genre-bolstering innovations such as internet radio and DAB, the future of radio has never looked brighter. (Apart from that time Fearne Cotton took the week off). So why not treat your ears to a Revo Axis.

Sleek and slanty, this internet/DAB radio/dock mash up represents the next generation of ‘connected’ music hubs, and by Jove it’s impressive. Capable of receiving internet radio (13,000 stations and counting), crystal-clear DAB and DAB+, conventional FM radio with RDS and music streamed from your PC or Mac, the Axis is one seriously multi-talented performer. It even gives you access to bespoke music-streaming service Last.fm. Waddya think of them apples!

Speaking of apples, did we mention that this nifty noisemaker doubles up as a full-on iPhone/iPod dock? Well it does, so there. It even boasts an icon-driven 3.5” colour touchscreen alongside a satisfyingly large volume knob. Piddly displays and fiddly dials? Not any more.

Stylish smooth design

If you think the Axis sounds pretty good, think again; it sounds pretty amazing. Thanks to NXT’s patented Balanced Radiator loudspeaker technology its 8W amp delivers impressive clarity and bass response. Heck, it even features an alarm clock with sleep and snooze functions. Not that you’ll be nodding off anytime soon with this much music at your fingertips.

Quite frankly if you can’t find something worth listening to via this gorgeously engineered box of tricks you must have cloth ears or a penchant for Martian whale song. Either way the Axis is one of the most impressive audio pumper-outers we’ve ever come across. So what’ll it be? Pop from Paris, traffic from Taiwan or Leon Jackson’s Greatest Hit from that playlist you forgot to delete? You decide!

Customer Reviews

Already own a DAB radio, but decided to invest in a new one that would allow me to try internet radio and dock my iPhone 4. Read a lot of good things and liked the design, was also attracted by the colour touchscreen. If you haven't tried internet radio, you need to. Over 10, 000 stations from around the world, at the touch of a button. I'm listening to stations that I was listening to when I was in New York on holiday back in the summer. Whatever type of music you like, you'll find it on this radio. It sounds great, full rounded sound, with plenty of bass. The design and materials are of high quality. The touchscreen interface is simple to use and responsive. Docking works as you'd expect. It's future proof (upgradable over wi-fi) and includes new DAB+ standard. Well impressed.

Great little radio! Smaller than it seems in the pictures but it looks brilliant. Reception and sound quality is brilliant as well, aside form FM which can be a bit patchy; but why use fm when you have DAB? Despite what the box says it does support the iPod Touch 4th gen as well as all other current iPods/iPhones, the dock can be a bit tricky as it grips the iPod, just push 'til it gets the charging symbol and it works fine. Comes with a full set of dock adapters which is great. The only issue I fore see is the usb update socket looks NOTHING like usb and finding a cable for it may prove problematic; the radio can update over wifi though so this can be avoided. All in all a brilliant little things for the price!
