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.

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.
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.
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!
