REVO announces first sub £200 colour touchscreen digital radio
The REVO AXiS is capable of receiving a full range of digital radio standards including DAB, DAB+ and internet radio - as well as conventional FM radio with RDS. AXiS will also stream digital music files from any ‘connected' PC or Apple Mac.
This compact radio features a 3.5" colour TFT touchscreen display, and is controlled via an icon-driven user interface, enabling quick and easy navigation around the radio's many advanced features.
AXiS boasts impressive audio clarity and bass response, courtesy of its 8W class D amplifier and NXT's patented Balanced Radiator (BR) loudspeaker technology.
Completing the hardware picture, AXiS provides advanced connectivity for all generations of iPod and iPhone, and is equipped with stereo RCA, AUX-IN, 3.5mm headphone and iPod/iPhone video out connectors as standard.
In addition to its terrestrial and internet radio capabilities, AXiS will also provide access to online music service Last.fm. Simply choose an artist or genre and let Last.fm build the perfect playlist from its library of 5 million tracks - unique to the user, and fresh every time. Alternatively, an existing Last.fm profile can be used.
AXiS includes a free 31 day Last.fm trial subscription, thereafter a £3.00 per month subscription charge applies.
AXiS is the result of a long and fruitful collaboration between Revo Technologies and Frontier Silicon, the industry leader in connected audio technology. At the heart of REVO's AXiS radio is Frontier Silicon's new multi-standard Venice 8 module.
AXiS has an SRP of £199.95 and will be available from the 1st of October 2010 from John Lewis, Marks and Spencer, Apple Store, Comet, Selfridges, Harrods and Next Directory.
