Christopher, Kidderminster Music fan

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Looks great, easy to set up & use. Connected easily to my network via lan cable, streams internet radio or music from my Mac without any fuss. Haven't used the ipod dock yet, no need with so many other ways to play music on it. I've got mine in the kitchen and it sounds really good. Not hifi good, but easily good enough for me.
Bad points:
File structure from USB memory stick playback a bit messy. I had intended to copy music files to a 16gb stick and leave that in the radio rather than stream music files from my Mac, but the menu and file naviagtion is much cleaner playing from the Mac.

If streaming from itunes you'll need a media server add on on your PC/Mac (as itunes doesn't have one as standard). I downloaded logitech media server to my Mac & it runs fine - this isn't a criticism of the Revo radio, just a feature of itunes which is easily resolved.
