Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Review Most of us have music all over the place - on PCs or Macs, phones, PMPs and USB sticks. If you also like to spend time listening to the radio - FM, DAB or internet - things can get complicated. With this in mind, Scottish audio specialist Revo has concocted a one-box-does-it-all player that promises to tie all those musical loose ends together.

Revo Heritage: 1960s styling, 2010 tech

Revo describes the Heritage as a "contemporary reinterpretation of the classic European table radio designs from the 1960s", which just about hits the nail on the head. Unlike some DAB radios that simply try too hard to be retro, the rather Presbyterian Heritage doesn't look painfully artsy or over styled.

The handsome looks are enhanced by the use some high quality materials, so it's all brushed aluminium and walnut veneer. The Heritage is larger than a traditional transistor radio, but it'll still sit on a shelf in any room. The telescopic aerial retracts fully into the body when not in use.

As well as being a combined RDS FM/DAB radio, the Heritage also works as a UPnP Wi-Fi music streamer, internet radio player, iPod/iPhone dock, and it can play DRM-free Flac, MP3, WMA and AAC files from USB storage. The Heritage isn't fully iPhone compliant, so you'll need to stick your handset into Flight Mode or hear bleepy interference whenever it communicates with a cell station. Nor can you use the Heritage's USB port to sync content.
