Heritage G2

There is something teutonic and midcentury about the Heritage G2…
it looks like a machine built for breaking bulletins on the Berlin crisis of 1961.

Reviews

  • stuff

    “Behind the splendidly retro walnut veneer flanks and aluminium grille is a radio that's armed to the teeth with modern-day wireless tech. Heritage might look like the past, but it sounds like the future.”

  • whathifi

    “Extremely well specified... an enjoyable, perky and up-front listen.”

  • macuser

    “As a DAB, internet radio and iPod music dock in one lovely box, the Revo Heritage is very hard to beat indeed ."

  • gramophone

    “The looks may be modern retro, but the range of facilities on offer here are anything but. The Revo is very good indeed via its on-board audio, with a good combination of weight and clarity making a wide range of speech and music very enjoyable.

    That's the appeal of this remarkably classy radio: it can be used around the home to access a wide variety of entertainment, or connected to a hi-fi system. That makes it a portable, a bedside clock-radio and a hi-fi tuner all in one, and this flexibility, plus the sheer quality of the unit, ensures it's an attractive buy.”
