5.0 out of 5 stars one of my best investments, no other internet radio comes close., 13 Jan. 2013
By 
This review is from: Revo Heritage G2 Deluxe Multi Format Table Radio with Docking for iPod and iPhone - Walnut (Electronics)
for the past couple of months, i've been searching for a new bedside radio. i've tried and tested

Pure One Flow Portable Music Streaming System with DAB Digital/FM/Internet Radio - Black
Kitsound Surfer 1.2 Internet Radio - Black
Hama IR200 Internet Radio
Revo Axis Internet/DAB/FM Clock Radio with iPhone/iPod Dock and 3.5-inch Touchscreen - Black

but all have been gone back after failing to tick some/all of the required boxes. some had good feature list but less than impressive build quality. some had displays that were too bright and could not be adjusted/turned off. all lacked dedicated preset buttons, there were internal hardware issues causing a poor audio experience. it really was a stuggle to find the unit i was looking for.

then i came across the heritage g2. yes the higher price makes it more of a considered purchase over the other units but so far i've not one single regret about my purchase. the following are what i feel really set this internet radio apart from the competition

- superior build quality, materials and finish
- a very clean, easy to read and brightness adjustable (standby and power on) oled display
- remote control replicating the buttons found on the unit in full
- one-button press presets. 10 presets each (5 on the front on the unit and 5 more on the remote) for internet radio, dab and fm mode. other units had to naviagate into the menu system to then access your presets
- a dedicated sleep/snooze button on top of the unit. prefect for bedside listeners. other units i tried required a annoyingly long set of button presses before sleep mode could be activated
- fantastic well rounded and clear audio performace for both speech and music
- internet radio uses the frontier silicon wifi radio portal. possibly the best portal of its kind and very useful if you have other units using the same portal so all your favourites and presets are kept in sync

i highly recommend this unit. not only for bedside use but you'll find it perfect for other locations too. it is almost too beautiful to have tucked away in a bedroom but for me and what i was looking for in a bedside unit, no other internet radio comes close.
