Summary: I ordered this item with great anticipation. I live in Canada but have an addiction to UK and US radio stations. The product has superb design and very good sound quality (relative to its compact size). Unfortunately the internet radio connection (even after upgrading my wifi and cable modem) is very poor. Almost from day one the internet radio was spotty and disconnected every 5 to 10 minutes. The radio also crashes often while using my iPhone as a music source.
Summary: This radio is excellent. But don't be fooled into thinking you're doing something good for the Scottish economy. It's marked as "Made in PRC", which means China. Revo might be a Scottish company and they may design their products here, but there's unlikely to be any manufacturing jobs in this for Scotland or the UK. The main reason for this review is to highlight the dreadful attitute of the workers Revo do employ here.
Summary: I have tried other internet radios, including those by OXX, and found most of them to be fairly crappy pieces of hardware, except the OXX. This one is fairly well designed, looks solid with a nice an bright display. I am using it mostly as an internet radio and as an Ipod docking station, so I won't comment on DAB, FM radio or even last.fm support.
Summary: I finally got my hands on the update of my Revo Heritage Radio a few weeks ago. I was pleasantly surprised that not much had changed and so having played with the radio a fair amount I am happy to base this review almost entirely on my review of the original update. I am going to use the old review heavily (ie copy and paste it) and update it where necessary as this is more of a tiny update to an already brilliant product.
one of my best investments, no other internet radio comes close.

Summary: for the past couple of months, i've been searching for a new bedside radio. i've tried and tested Pure One Flow Portable Music Streaming System with DAB Digital/FM/Internet Radio - Black Kitsound Surfer 1.2 Internet Radio - Black Hama IR200 Internet Radio Revo Axis Internet/DAB/FM Clock Radio with iPhone/iPod Dock and 3.5-inch Touchscreen - Black but all have been gone back after failing to tick some/all of the required boxes.
Summary: Amazing piece off kit - no faults what so ever. Also love the app. Only problem s that the receptions of WLAN and dab is strangely on and off. I live in central London and the router is very close so no reason really. Anyone else with similar experiences? Might just be my house? Do however LOVE the kit!
Summary: We're a family that love radio and have just discovered the joys of internet radio. This is our third digital radio purchase and the best of the bunch. The Heritage G2 combines a ridiculous number of features, everything from DAB and internet radio, to iPhone docking and even streaming music from your computer. The Heritage sounds great, which you'd expect from a radio that costs as much as this, but what really strikes you is just how beautiful the design is.
Summary: Despite having purchased many different and varied products from Amazon over the years I have never posted a review. However, after the miserable experience that I have had since purchasing this radio I felt compelled to share my thoughts. This product was purchased in October 2011 and had been seldom used. When I unplugged the AV adapter to re-position the unit in my house it was evident that the socket was misaligned (along with the USB socket adjacent to it).
Summary: Had this Radiio just three days, had to tell people how great this is. First of all it looks Great and most of all it sounds Great! I have had most makes of sound and have spent a few £ on different types over the years. I am a pensioner so it is a lot of years! I have at the moment a few Bose units so I hope you trust me when I say the sound on this Revo unit is very good for this type of unit.
