Robert’s Revival new colours

Roberts Radio has launched five new Revival shades available in Revival iStream 3 and Revival Uno: Berry Red, Charcoal Grey, Dusky Pink, Mulberry Purple, and Teal Blue. There are now fi ve new colours that tie in with current interiors trends, and the launch is being supported by an extensive omni channel campaign. The Revival colour range now spans 16 colours, across the iStream 3, Revival RD70, Revival Uno, and Revival Mini, offering individuality and

choice to consumers. The top-of-the-range Revival,

the iStream 3 is a classic Revival redefi ned for modern listeners. Available in 10 colours with simple lines, a solid structure and timeless looks combine with advanced tech and features, it’s a radio that is smart in every sense.

Combining the best of old and the

new, the Revival RD70 brings retro up-to-date with Bluetooth music streaming. Simply pair with your smartphone or tablet and play stored

songs or connect to a streaming service to listen to your favourite artists. The RD70 features an intuitive full colour display which makes the radio’s features easier to navigate. The Revival Uno is a more compact version of the nostalgic Revival. Being 35 per cent smaller it’s great for smaller spaces and works well in bedrooms with its alarm functions. With FM/ DAB/DAB+ options, it is truly portable as it runs on mains and battery and has a handy carry handle. It is also available in the same new colours.
