Product Description

Product Description

The iconic ‘Revival’ DAB radio is back but with a difference! Stylish Retro Chic meets high tech internet radio with the Revival iSTREAM.

The iSTREAM is a nostalgic 1950s style retro radio with advanced Wi-Fi internet radio features. Wi-Fi internet radio enables you to access thousands of radio stations from around the world, it also means that you can take your favourite stations abroad with you when you travel as long as you have access to a Wi-Fi internet connection. Alternatively you can choose to stream your personal music collection directly from your laptop.

Browsing stations is really simple thanks to on-screen radio station listings that are automatically updated and conveniently sorted into country or genre. All you need to get started is a broadband internet connection with a wireless router.

Also, the Media Streaming function allows you to use your internet radio to play music files which are stored on a computer or other storage device on your network.

iPhone App support - A free of charge software update is now available to all iStream users to add a major new feature to the radio. The new software allows the radio to be remotely controlled using our ConnectR app for the iPhone and iPod touch. The update also allows the radio alarms to be configured while the radio is in standby, as well as providing multiple language options for the radio menus. For further details please see the Roberts website.

I was initially looking at the Roberts RD60 Revival radio (which incidentally is fantastic, my friend at uni owns one) but really wanted a DAB radio with an alarm, my current FM clock radio sounds terrible and cant hold a signal. This radio is so easy to set up, connecting to the internet takes seconds and it is very easy to stream my itunes library off my mac (this did require a third party program which runs in the background).

The sound quality is great at moderate and low volumes, and the build quality is great. As i said, i bought this radio for its alarm feature, but the number of other features surprised me slightly. I thought it would have been a large hassle to set up the internet radio and to stream music off my computer, but the radio is very easy to use with menus laid out well and a straightforward instruction manual.

The only downside is the price. Its a super radio but seeing that the price has risen to 199.99 since i bought mine at 185.99, i would say that the price is the only negative about this radio. Maybe I say that because im a student and dont have an income during term time.
Oh, also, if your internet isn't great or you plan on placing this radio where the wireless is intermittent (my bedroom or kitchen are both a little intermittent) then the radio can cut out for a few seconds every few minutes, but placed in decent range of the router then you should have no problems

But i have to say, this is a fantastic radio, with a surprising number of features. I would certainly recommend this radio.

Bought this as a Christmas present for my wife who loves it. If you're considering buying don't hesitate, its a fantastic radio. Make sure you go for the iStream version (they have a DAB & FM only model)if you have a wireless router in the home or place of use. The number of web stations available world-wide make it a real pleasure to use. I originally bought this as DAB reception of Radio 2 in our area (Ash Vale near Guildford) was predicted to be a little iffy. I need not have worried as DAB works very well but you need the telescopic aerial extended to be reliable. When using wiFi however I didnt have to raise the aerial at all so its more convenient. The plug top AC mains adaptor is recommended as they say the current consumption on wiFi is higher than DAB or FM (understandable). We used it on both but not long enough on batteries (4 x D cell) to find out how long it would last. The phono output (3.5mm jack) was a nice feature as we fed it into the HiFi amp for our new years party and it sounded really good. Stereo of course when hooked up on line out. (the radio has one good loudspeaker) The sound quality is very good and the equalizer function allows you to set it for jazz, speech, rock etc. or you can set up your own 'profile' of bass & treble, very nice. The top mounted USB port is a nice feature allowing you to play pre-loaded files. I tried this out of interest and the navigation through to the file was superb. It ran beautifully on the MP3 I had loaded.
The quality of construction is very good and I can highly recommend this superb radio. If you can go for the iStream version its going to open up a world wide reception of thousands of 'stations' and so much more interesting than just DAB and FM. Listening to stations in Australia or the USA with perfect reception takes some getting used to, it opens up a new listening experience.

I have only just connected this radio but I love it. The sound quality is great. The internet streaming capabilities are amazing. The radio is easy to use and set up. The controls are quite intuitive. Forget about TV radio is the future

I was initially looking at the Roberts Stream 83i, the spec and features were what I was looking for and the price was right, but I wasn't enamoured with the looks, and the size was bigger than my existing Roberts DAB radio. Then I saw the new Revival iStream in a local shop, had a 'hands on' introduction and was immediately smitten. The Revival does everything the Stream does, is more compact, looks better (if you're of a certain age!) and has the added advantage of battery backup, so is a true 'portable'.

Controls are easy to understand, if a little fiddly in some areas, notably inputting text, but that's mainly for initial network setup. However, so far I have had no need to look at the manual, it worked 'straight out of the box' with everything being very intuitive. I had the whole thing set up with DAB, FM, internet access and media streaming from my Iomega NAS box within 15 minutes. I was then able to use my pc to register with the preferred network radio site, to find and construct my lists of favourite radio stations and podcasts which were automatically downloaded to the unit.

The price is more than the 83i but, in my opinion, is well worth it. There's a lot more to discover about this radio, but I'm looking forward to it!

This is my second internet radio. It's in a different (better) world to its predecessor: easy to set up, finds and holds the network signal and really nice looking. The other major plus is the instruction manual which is written in clear English and provides plenty of detail. It feels and works like a quality product.
