Nevo SL review

It's a hefty price tag, but this remote would give Dumbledore wand envy. Tested at £650.00

What Hi-Fi? Verdict

Technology Best Buy in Awards 2005. Wi-Fi control and huge IR database.

    Versatile, multi-functional, built-in wi-fi

    The hefty price tag

A lot of money, for sure, but this is essentially a handheld computer, not a mere remote control.

The NevoSL has built-in wi-fi to allow access to your networked digital music, can control all your kit via infra-red, and offers customisable graphics linked to a high-quality colour LCD touchscreen.

The latest v2.0 software allows installers to remotely modify your set-up via the internet.

Fabulous, then, if a luxury item.
