Dieter Rams-inspired SuperConnect Hybrid Radio by Revo
Inspired by the midcentury audio designs of Dieter Rams at Braun, this SuperConnect Hybrid Radio by Revo has the looks to match the functionality.
The mix of American walnut wood and metal, but especially the control panel and speaker on the front of the SuperConnect hints at classic Braun (like the RT20 for example). But beyond that exterior is some cutting edge audio.
In this relatively small box, you'll find DAB, DAB+, FM with RDS and internet radio, DLNA and WLAN technology for wireless audio playback from external computers and music servers, Bluetooth for streaming from smartphones and Spotify Connect, which gives you access to over 20 million tracks from the Spotify archive (as long as you have a premium account).
On top of that, there is a 'secret-until-lit' graphical OLED display, a 15W Class-D amplifier, patented BMR (Balanced Mode Radiator) loudspeaker technology, a hand-crafted wooden cabinet and an anodised T6 aluminium front facia and speaker grille.
If you want one, it goes on sale from 8th November 2013 for £249.95 from www.revo.co.uk or the John Lewis website.
