Revo Pico RadioStation review

£169 inc VAT

Manufacturer: Revo Technologies

Our Rating: We rate this 4 out of 5

The Revo Pico RadioStation is a nifty little rugged radio that lets you listen to FM, DAB, DAB+ and internet radio (via integrated Wi-Fi).

The Revo Pico RadioStation is a nifty little rugged radio that lets you listen to FM, DAB, DAB+ and internet radio (via integrated Wi-Fi).

In total, according to Revo, you should be able to listen to some 11,000 stations with the Pico RadioStation.

The inclusion of a rechargeable battery in the Pico RadioStation was a great move by Revo, and the ‘splashproof' design sweetens the deal a tad more.

Digital audio reviews, buying advice

The design is petite and minimalist, with eight buttons and a navigation wheel. Finding your way through the menu is a no-brainer; there's no annoying fiddling involved in changing stations, for example. However, we would have preferred it if the Pico RadioStation's navigation wheel was the volume control instead of the station finder.

The discreet size of the Pico RadioStation makes it the perfect desk radio for work or home. It has a 3.5mm headphone jack so headphones can be plugged in if need be. A line-in port lets you use the radio as a portable speaker for devices like MP3 players.

Surprisingly for a portable radio, a compact remote control is included with the Pico RadioStation.

The LCD screen on the Pico RadioStation could be better - when it scrolls it flashes slightly and text moves too slowly.

Despite only have a single speaker, audio is surprisingly clear and of good quality. When the Pico RadioStation is first turned on the volume fades in and out a couple of times before coming good, but this isn't too vexing.

The price tag of £169 might scare off buyers at first, but you have to take into account that the Revo Pico RadioStation radio offers numerous features, including the splashproof case and rechargeable lithium-ion battery. It's incredibly light and it's ideal for the kitchen, bathroom and garage, or for an outdoor adventure. We think it's a sleek, good quality digital radio with the features that justify its price tag.
