revo kube
New model combines DAB/DAB+, wi-fi, Mac/PC streaming and wireless speaker connection - plus NXT BR drivers

This is the new KUBE multiformat digital radio from Scottish company Revo, exclusively revealed to What Hi-Fi? Sound and Vision here in Hong Kong by NXT, which supplies the Balanced Radiator drive units used in the unit.

Due to be shown at the Hong Kong Electronics Fair next week, the KUBE combines FM, DAB, DAB+ and wi-fi radio reception, and can also be used to stream music from both Macs and PCs.

What's more, the mono radio can be extended with up to six further speakers, which connect using 2.4GHz technology over a range of up to 50m.

The KUBE uses a single 11.5cm full-range NXT Balanced Radiator flat speaker, powered by a 10W Class D amplifier to give a bandwidth of 80Hz-20kHz.

More after the break

It's housed in the same furniture grade walnut veneer enclosure as the company's BLOK iPod speaker, with cast aluminium and soft touch plastic panels, and uses an 8cm OLED display panel. A circular remote handset is supplied, duplicating the top-panel controls.
