Pinell Go Portable Battery Powered Digital Radio with FM/DAB/DAB+ - Carbon Black
Pinell Go Portable Battery Powered Digital Radio with FM/DAB/DAB+ - Carbon Black
Offered by TotallyGadgets
Price: 167.58

3.0 out of 5 stars Not enough for the price, 31 May 2014
Was looking for a small portable DAB radio and this seemed like a good choice.

First impression is that it's well made, nice design, really compact. Controls not particularly intuitive.

Audio is ok for what is a very small box but at nearly 180 I have to say that this radio is just too expensive. I would have at least expected some additional features such as Bluetooth streaming, a remote control would also have been nice.

Overall a nice little radio but too expensive (its cheaper in Norway where it comes from) and lacking in features.

This review is from: Primus Thermoflask black (Sports)
Tough, durable, fantastic build quality. There's obviously lots of flasks out there, but if you want one that's really well made and don't mind paying top dollar, this is the one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cracking little radio, 20 Nov 2013
At last a streaming DAB/Internet radio that will dock with my iPhone 5 - one of very few products that can take the new lightning connector from Apple.

Already own the previous model with the old style 30 pin Apple connector, has been a great purchase and has now been passed down to my daughter.

The Revo X3 has just about everything you'd want from a digital radio. Easy on the eye, compact enough for a desk or bedside table, colour touchscreen which makes operation really easy, sounds great (What HiFi 5-stars apparently) and does DAB, Fm and 16,000 internet radio stations. Also includes Bluetooth wireless streaming from smartphones, tablets etc.

My 3rd Revo radio and yet to be disappointed, another cracking little radio.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not so enormous, 20 Nov 2013

Don't get fooled by the title, this isn't enormous, rather a beanie from the book "The Enormous Crocodile".

Even at 31cm long (which it is), it still looks pretty small. Reasonable quality though.

These seem to be pretty rare. Saw them in a magazine and then struggled to find a pair in my size anywhere, eventually tracked a pair down on Amazon, delighted.

3.0 out of 5 stars A little disappointing, 10 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This product looks pretty cool, but in the flesh there's too much use of plastic and not enough quality materials for what is quite an expensive radio.

Sounds pretty good (it's FM only, no DAB unfortunately).

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant Radio, 10 Nov 2012
Have been in the market for a good internet radio with iPhone docking etc. and came across Axis XS in What Hi-Fi magazine where it got a 5 star review and won their Radio of the Year award. Figured if What Hi-Fi rated it so highly, then it was worth a try. Having had a look around the internet, Revo seem to have built a good reputation for their products and have won loads of awards. Also, the previous Axis model was number one rated.

Pleased to say that I haven't been disappointed, this is a great radio.

Briefly, here are my initial thoughts:

Design and build quality - Axis XS looks great. Slick design, expensive looks and really well made.

Feature-wise it seems to have everything, DAB and internet radio (also FM, but must admit haven't even used it and probably won't), docking for Apple products, you can stream music from any Bluetooth device (smartphones, iPads, even iPhone 5 and iPad mini) or stream music from your computer, it has iPod/iPhone docking and even a charging connector for any phone or any device with a USB connector.

The colour touch screen looks and works great. The menus and operating system are simple to use and the setup procedure couldn't have been better.

Incidentally, if you haven't tried internet radio before and you are a radio lover, you've got to try it, it's awesome.

If you're looking for an all singing, all dancing digital radio, I'd certainly recommend the Revo Axis XS.
