Revo Technologies's K2 Radio Tower Could Easily Be A Desktop

There have been quite a few awesome designs in the world of radios lately, but this new design from Revo Technologies takes the cake.

The K2 is a beautiful tower made of aluminium and rubber, capable of delivering reception of a wide variety of radio formats including DAB, DAB+, FM and internet radio. K2 also offers full audio and video playback from iPod, iPhone and iPad, access to online music service Last.fm and the ability to wirelessly stream music files from any connected PC or Mac.

K2's proprietary audio hardware effortlessly produces 40 watts of room-filling high-fidelity digital audio, courtesy of a quartet of neodymium Balanced Mode Radiator speaker drivers and dual Class-D amplifiers. Digital Signal Processing (DSP) optimises drive unit control, enabling K2 to exhibit the performance characteristics of a significantly larger device. The result is near 360 degree dispersion, providing a massively expanded listening sweet-spot, detailed high-end clarity, rich tones and deep bass. K2's hardware specification includes a large graphical secret-until-lit OLED display, discreet motorized dock for Apple devices, and an array of connection options including stereo RCA and digital optical out, Apple video out, and 3.5mm headphone jack.


In addition to its terrestrial and internet radio capabilities, K2 will also provide access to online music service Last.fm. Simply choose an artist or genre and let Last.fm build the perfect playlist from its library of 5 million tracks – unique to the user, and fresh every time. K2 includes a free 31 day Last.fm trial subscription, thereafter a £3.00 per month subscription charge applies.

The K2 will ship this October for £299.95.

It seems like everybody wants to do the Bose and create sound systems that surround the whole room using one speaker. I'm not a fan of this particular method but if it produces great quality sound then I wouldn't mind at all...

Plus the fact that you can tune into all of these things plus place an iPod on it, it is really going to fly off of their store shelves (other store shelves depending on whether or not the price is expensive.)

If there were a similar version without the expensive proprietary Apple stuff, I might consider this. As is, no, I refuse to pay for anything Apple-centric.

It needs Bluetooth, simple as that.

Matter of fact, if anyone has any solid recommendations for good pair of Bluetooth-enabled speakers, that'd be great.

300 pounds is a lot of jack for this thing. It looks like nice bling, but $484.65 US is pushing it.
