Revo Supersystem Music Player – A fine product from an excellent British – Scottish! – manufacturer. Best radio I’ve ever owned. Thanks, !

Great sound – button design lacking. Having used the revo supersystem for two months now i can say that it is an excellent system and is probably one of the best sounding units of this type out there. However, there are some shortcomings which from a design, and therefore usability point of view mean that it loses a star from an otherwise excellent device. Chiefly this is the extremely poorly thought out design of the buttons on the unit. Not only is it nigh on impossible to read the legend by each one, the plethora of buttons mean it is also pretty hard to remember the position of one you consider to be important. The two most important buttons are the joystick and selection buttons which are naturally next to the main display (logical), however, the third most important button is the menu which should have been clustered with these other two. Instead its the second one tucked away on the second row (pretty useless if the light is not bright enough to read the minuscule text next to the button). The remote control doesn’t fair too well either with almost unreadable grey on dark grey buttons (dumb). Don’t these people use their own products in normal environments?. Come ona recent firmware update means the revo supports alac files from the mac (over upnp/dlna) as well as high quality bbc listen again content.

Fantastic sound, great old school design.

A very satisfied customer. . I have been completely satisfied with the revo supersystem. Apart from the excellent audio reproduction and extensive facilities, it was truly simple to setup. I would highly recommend this system. Here are the specifications for the Revo Supersystem Music Player:

  • Enter your model number
    to make sure this fits.
  • Stereo 80 Watt Output Power with dedicated Subwoofer
  • DAB, DAB+, FM and Internet Radio (24,000+ stations)
  • DLNA Audio Streaming from PC, Mac or NAS Drive
  • Spotify Connect Enabled – Access over 20 Million Tracks
  • Bluetooth Wireless Streaming with aptX Technology

A really super hifi system. . I actually was interested by the superconnect at first but i chose to give the supersystem a try mainly because this is a true stereo system. I was a bit affraid to put this amount of money for a ‘table radio’ but i am happy to have make this choice now. This is a special device for my hifi installation right now. I even use it with a pre-amplified vinyl turntable pluged in the aux input. Man, the sound is very impressive for such a small unit. Since one week i have tested several types of music with it and i can say that the sound is powerful and deep. What i especialy appreciate is that it gives a very neutral reproduction of the sound. I set the egalizer up this way : bass = 0, treble = 2 which is a mix of the jazz and rock presets and boom that’s it. By the way, i am a french customer.

Great design, sound and materials. I use the internet radio and spotify which work perfect.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • A really super Hifi system.
  • Hard to beat for £399!
  • A Very Satisfied Customer.

Versatile, wonderful looking, stunning sounding current market leader. I bought this locally so i could check it in person rather than from amazon but as it is less known item i am happy to review here for the use of others. As a what hifi winner unit we would hope it is good quality and indeed it is. It has a large, room filling sound with high level of amplification including a sub-woofer. The sound mix can be controlled with separate treble, bass and switchable loudness in the user setting. It has a balanced sound that avoids bass boom. I strongly recommend turning loudness off immediately as it then opens up the sound to a significant degree. The features are great with dab, internet radio, aux in, network playing over wifi, fm, spotify bluetooth apt-x and usb plus an optical input (using with chromecast audio). It includes a nice chunky remote and top volume button. It will be better to download the undok app on your device and use this to control the item than do it entirely via the remote.

At £400 its a great price delivered. Just received my refurbished unit. 1st impressions are top quality. I’m not an audiophile but compared to my pure mono unit its replacing it beats it hands down. At £400 its a great price delivered. I’d use the on-line app to store your favourite internet stations. Not used it on any other mode yet. Remote control is solid just like the main piece of kit.

Pros:- superb looking piece of kit: it is looking grand in my living room- connectivity (physical and non physical)- sound is really great for voices: very clear, very enjoyable to listen to radio shows and podcasts- easy to use and configurecons:- remote control is huge and heavy. I don’t understand why it was designed that way when the kit itself is so slick- remote control interferes with my lg tv (and vice versa).

I bought the black face with walnut outer. Admittedly it is expensive but it sounds great and the features are spot on. You can get any staion from around the world as well as linking it up via bluetooth to any one of your tablets or mobile phone. The features are really intuitive to use. I also like the fact it is a uk firm.

    If only it had a sleep button on the remote, it’d be perfect.

    Fantastic sound, real power and depth for a smallish. Fantastic sound, real power and depth for a smallish piece of kit. Easily outperforms ruarkr2 mk3 in a large room where you need a but more power, and only ruark that sounds comparable is the r4 which does not stream audio and is much more expensive.

      1. Beatiful piece of kit and just the job if you have a premium spotify account. The undok remote control app is highly recommended too. However the system lacks punch but the sound is crystal clear. Buy the refurbed because they are brand new. Get a subwoofer attached if you like to feel the bass.

    Lovely design, build, sound and support. I’ve had my supersystem for about 9 months, so have tried all its features many times. The top line here is that its a cracking system. We use it mostly for radio in the mornings then hooking up to spotify throughout the day. Packaging has a premium feel and set up was a breeze – plug in, turn on, connect to wifi and you are pretty much done (setting up spotify and radio presets is also easy). Sound is better than the rauk audio unit it replaced and it looks the business; at least to my eye. In 9 months its not missed a beat. I came downstairs to sort the kids breakfast. Usually there is a blue/green glow from the oled screen.

    1. Superb all round sound system. Black black in the kitchen and walnut silver in the bedroom. Sound quality and functions makes this unbeatable. The remote, smart phone control and physical control buttons make this unbeatable. Listened in depth to this against sonos, ruark and sony units prior to purchase. Sonos and sony were a good match for sound quality but both left in the dust by their lack of control options and lack of any real control without a phone in your hand which for me is a negative. The sony stsx99 was an equal in sound quality i would say. Not sure why the ruark gets good reviews for sound quality as i thought they were dull for premium products. Mainly use for fm radio, internet radio and nas streaming.

    Delighted with this product. I moved house and was recommended this when looking at sound systems for my living room – it’s been a great decision. It’s absolutely load enough and we use the bluetooth when guests are round.Get the walnut it looks good especially with white/grey walls or wooden flooring.

    1. A fine product from an excellent british – scottish.I’m revising a negative review i originally posted here, that i sent out of genuine disappointment and frustration at an expensive revo product that unfortunately developed a serious fault, that rendered it totally useless. It was a faulty microchip – a very occasional fault in any digital equipment owing to the microscopic scale of the engineeringbut i’m glad to say that i have since enjoyed a more positive experience, thanks to revo’s truly top-class customer support. The upshot was they immediately offered me a full refund in consideration of the breakdown of this brand-new radio, or alternatively, a replacement with discount in recognition of the serious fault in the first unit. I opted for a replacement, and they organized the courier service with no hassle for me at all. It has been a real pleasure dealing with such very committed and helpful people at revo, at their international base in scotland. They were as disappointed as i was with the failure of this unit, and really got weaving to sort things out.
