In a world where technology is constantly evolving and sustainability is at the top of the agenda, we are fast becoming a society that is looking to negate waste from our lives. We are now more considered than ever when it comes to investing in luxury items, does it deliver, will it last, does it offer good value? Make sure you make the right decision and avoid the unwanted ‘buy cheap buy twice’ scenario and invest in quality and longevity.
Two for the Price of One
For those looking at new radio and audio systems for the home, the newly updated Revival RD70 from Roberts is a wise purchase. First launched in the 1950’s, Roberts much loved retro styled, Revival, has been the UK’s best-selling portable radio for many years and with some technology updates, the best has just got better. Keeping the classic 50’s styling we all love, this Revival has new features and enhanced performance thanks to Bluetooth connectivity and a newly designed, more intuitive colour display.
With the introduction of Bluetooth technology, you can now stream your music via various devices making the Revival RD70 a stylish, portable speaker as well as a radio – two for the price of one!
Choosing a brand you can trust is also something to consider. Roberts, the much-loved British audio brand, has an impressive track record when it comes to keeping in tune with the latest audio technologies. Having been in the audio business for 85 years, the brand’s success is due to never compromising on quality on both technology and design to produce the best performing portable radios.

What else does it do?
In addition to Bluetooth, the colour display has been redesigned and is much more intuitive. It’s now in full colour and provides more detailed information on the screen. This screen can also be customised, for example, you can set it so you can see the clock in your preferred format.
The radio function offers FM/DAB/DAB+ to give you a vast choice of radio stations. This also makes the radio ‘future-proof’ – ie if you live in an area currently without a DAB signal, you have the FM option until that changes.
It also runs on AA batteries as well as mains, so is truly portable and suitable for outdoor use too. It features two alarms to make a great bedroom radio, so why not wake up to this instead of the alarm on the phone? The Revival definitely adds some style to a bedroom.
