From the manufacturer
SuperSignal benefits from the functionalist design philosophy and uncompromising quality ethos that has become our hallmark. This remarkable compact digital radio is ideal for use in smaller rooms such as a kitchen or study, and makes a perfect bedside companion thanks to it’s twin digital alarms, touch-snooze feature and category-acoustic performance.
SuperSignal is equipped to receive DAB/DAB+ broadcasts, as well as traditional FM radio with RDS. Bluetooth support is also included, meaning users can wirelessly stream music from their smartphone, tablet or other Bluetooth enabled device, including laptops – with no physical docking necessary. The addition of Qualcomm aptX technology means that where supported by the transmitting device, streaming music will be at CD quality rather than the lower bit rate MP3 quality of standard Bluetooth. SuperSignal includes sophisticated alarm clock functionality including dual alarms, Sleep mode and Touch-Snooze - activated by simply touching the radio’s aluminium grille.
SuperSignal’s wooden cabinet is clad in a choice of furniture-grade American walnut veneer or premium quality matt paint finishes, while anodised aluminium and mild steel components provide a reassuringly tactile quality. A detailed graphical OLED display and joystick control add a touch of modernity, while patented audio electronics and BMR driver technology deliver 12W of clear digital audio with clarity and deep rich bass.
Design and Materials
Aesthetically, SuperSignal is a balanced blend of modernity and mid-century charm – perfectly proportioned, substantial, handsome. Whilst always looking to innovate, we also keep one eye on the past, learning and taking inspiration from the great designers of the 20th century. We believe that form should follow function and that attention to detail matters. Good design and the use of quality materials enrich and elevate the user experience.
A hand-crafted wooden cabinet has been selected for its superb acoustic properties, clad in furniture grade American walnut or subtle matt paint finishes, no other material provides the deep foundations of great audio performance like wood.
The use of high quality anodised 6000 series aluminium for the front fascia and speaker grille, and pressing steel for the backplate further inject a reassuring tactility and sense of honesty that cannot be achieved with lesser materials.

SuperSignal’s 5-star rated audio characteristics are the result of a considered blend of the finest electronic, acoustic and software design. The finest audio components, all-digital technology, cutting-edge sound modelling techniques and a carefully engineered bass porting system combine to deliver category defining performance.
BMR (Balanced Mode Radiator) speaker drivers utilise flat diaphragm transducer technology and combine the performance attributes of a flat panel speaker with the pistonic movement of a conventional loudspeaker, resulting in a high performance compact drive unit that develops wide dispersion and an expanded sweet spot.
Cutting-edge sound modelling techniques have been used to design SuperSignal’s sound profile. In tandem with our custom hardware design, SuperSignal’s proprietary EQ configuration develops a warm open sound with clarity, detail and deep rich bass – free from colouration and distortion and benefiting from an expansive sound field.

There don’t seem to be many radios out there with a physical IR remote (who wants to be faffing around with a phone app in the middle of the night?) The Pure Evoke series look lovely, but their remote controls seem like a waste of time as you’d have to get out of bed to switch the device back to radio after using Bluetooth. They also appear to lack any tone control, which I find essential as I nearly always have to boost the treble and lower the bass for speech as speakers become ever more bass-heavy. The Roberts Blutune was a contender but I’d read some mixed reviews of its sound quality and it’s a bit big for the limited space in my room.
Having decided to sacrifice stereo speakers and go for the Revo Supersignal, I was still a bit dubious about the radio’s appearance, but once I got it out of the box it was love at first sight. The quirky retro-industrial look might be a bit obtrusive in a bigger device but in such a small unit it just gives a quality, stylish look. Were it in a more public part of the house I’m sure it would be a great talking point.
This is a supremely functional device. It picks up rock solid signals on DAB and FM, its menu system is totally intuitive and the huge, clear display makes it easy to operate from across the room. Yes, the minimum display is very bright at night time but you can now get an update from Revo to switch it off completely on standby. [And the software updater will run on a 64 bit machine with Win8.1 32 bit – just search for a guide on switching off the requirement for digital signing of drivers.] Bluetooth pairing is simple and reliable from my phone and my Cowon X7. Above all, I absolutely love the remote control. It’s big and solid like a chunky chocolate bar and just as reassuring. Buttons are widely spaced and in two colours – it’s a cinch to find and operate even in the dark – and it controls absolutely every feature of the radio.
The most important aspect of an audio device has to be the sound, of course. I got off to a bad start here, as my radio seemed to have a very harsh, almost scratchy quality in the treble. Thanks to the quick response from other Amazon reviewers it was apparent that I’d got a duff unit. Amazon excelled themselves and couriered a replacement to me in 24 hours and I can now report that the Supersignal sounds amazing. It took a couple of days to get used to the clarity and brightness of the treble but the more I listen, the more I love it. Talk radio, podcasts and audiobooks are crystal clear and I’ve yet to find a musical style that doesn’t sound good, even over Bluetooth, although the quality of the recording/stream will show up. Streaming jazz and baroque from Qobuz or audiophile internet radio at 320kps is a real pleasure and flac files from the Cowon sound just great, whether I’m hankering for a thumping funk bass or some ethereal choral music.
The icing on the cake is the friendly and helpful Revo service team, who got back to me very quickly regarding the software update. They’re a Scottish company making a quality, distinctive product and they listen and respond to their customers. What’s not to like?
Well worth the money and highly recommended.
Update 15th November 2015: Still loving the Supersignal - finding it hard to get out of bed at weekends because I'm enjoying listening to it so much! Last week I added a £30 Chromecast Audio to the auxiliary 3.5mm input socket and now have high quality streaming from all sorts of Internet sources in the package as well, without having to use the phone's bluetooth. A winning combination.
Bought a recon unit from the manufacturer and found it to be in perfect condition.
Bass has to be set at minimum level of -5 to sound most realistic and avoid boominess. This means the tuning is less than optimal and the unit could have sounded even better if it were designed differently.
Tuner could be a bit more sensitive, even some local stations are too weak.
Default alarm loudness is zero! You have to change the level or else the first time you use it you will hear absolutely nothing when the alarm activates. Easy fix, bit daft as a default setting.
180 quid might seem like a lot of money but I think you get what you pay for. A nice frequency response from a surprisingly punchy bass to crisp highs. I had read that the Revo lacked some high end sparkle but I don't share the view; I very much like the way it sounds.
The display is another plus, enough characters to actually show you which station you're listening to unlike some others that display "BBC Radio"..... wait for it..... Wait for the scroll.... "2".
A nice bluey white dot matrix display shows the time in larger numbers. A pleasant to look at clock in the dark.
When I turned it on it found all the stations quickly and set the time. This unit has now replaced the cheesy clock radio alarm we had before.
Press and hold a preset to store, click to play. Five preset buttons are on the front - 6 would be nice because I listen to 6 Music so six lives on 5! The chunky volume control on top has a soft notch fee. Nice. All the buttons feel good, more of a clunk that a click.
I have yet to look in the manual and have worked out in no time how to use it, just do what makes sense and it works. Good signal reception too, every other radio tried in the same room has produced nothing but hiss, the Revo has yet to skip a beat.
Flawless Bluetooth too, played a couple of albums from my android without a glitch.
If I had to nit-pick I'd say the icons on the remote are a bit difficult to see without glasses, though it would be fair to point the finger of blame at my eyes.
Having spilled a glass of water next to it, I now see why it sits on those rubber feet.
Everything about it is a winner, glad I chose this one.
Update - I've heard some reviews regarding poor sound quality. I found when using a CD player through the aux in port that the input was clipping making the unit sound distorted even a lower output volumes.
To all of you with this problem, use a line with a volume control to attenuate the CD players (or other devices) line out level.
You can get these cables with various PC speakers and the volume control is often redundant as there is also a volume control on the speakers. It may even be cheaper to by some cheap speakers for the cable and throw the speakers away.
