The Revo Uno DAB+ is an unusual looking and expensive digital radio alarm clock that offers an average feature set.

The Revo Uno DAB+ is extremely easy to use - setting alarms, programming your station preset and scanning for stations are all straightforward.

However, the Revo Uno DAB+ does have some annoying navigation issues; for example, scrolling through stations and selecting one that can't be tuned in will result in you having to scroll back through all the stations again, instead of defaulting to the next station on the list.

The Revo Uno DAB+ comes with a remote control about the size of a credit card, that reproduces the controls on the Revo Uno DAB+ itself and adds 10 preset buttons. A 3.5mm headphone jack on the back of the digital radio lets you listen to music without annoying your coworkers. The unit also functions as a speaker for your iPod - so if you get sick of the radio you can listen to your own mix.

Home entertainment reviews and advice

Sound quality on the Revo Uno DAB+ is nothing to write home about. At its highest setting the volume is not very loud, and at lower volume settings - below 5 on its monochrome LCD - you can't really hear anything. It lacks much bass or mid-range, with a heavy bias towards treble notes. If you have a good pair of headphones plugged in then it makes sound quality a lot better.

Revo's Uno also has an FM tuner, so you can still tune in to stations that haven't switched over to digital yet. Unfortunately the Uno lacks the DAB+ recording features found on the cheaper Pure ONE Classic.

OUR VERDICT

We think the Revo Uno DAB+ digital radio has an unrealistic price tag, although it does come with the convenience of a remote control. We think there are digital radios out there that offer better value.
