Revo IKON brings DAB radio, iPhone dock, touch

updated 08:25 am EDT, Mon August 24, 2009

Revo IKON Radio Dock

Revo this morning claimed the high ground in radio docks through the unveiling of the IKON. The system aims to be a center for all digital audio with DAB+ radio (for the UK), Internet radio through many sources that include Last.fm, Pandora, Rhapsody and Sirius, an iPhone/iPod dock and media sharing from Macs and PCs on the local Ethernet or Wi-Fi network. A unique advantage in the field is a 3.5-inch touchscreen that provides both a much more context-sensitive interface for each source but displays album art, song data and anything else a given format allows.

The bookshelf-sized stereo also provides FM radio and an aux-in jack for alternative sources. Revo keeps it thin but relatively powerful with flat-panel NXT speakers producing 30W of sustained power. Although intended partly for the British home market with a 280 ($461) after-tax price, the company specifically intends to support the US and will ship the IKON worldwide in October.
