1. It doesn't seem to have a real time clock - every time it is power-cycled, the Date and Time have to be re-entered. (Even though it can be configured to get time from FM, DAB or Internet, I was not able to get it to work). 2. After a Software Update, it resets the volume to Max Volume, This is not very user friendly. 3. Most annoying issue is that whenever it loses internet connectivity, say due to low Wi-Fi signal, it does not remember which WiFi network was selected before. As a result the user has to manually select the desired network and go through the network wizard setup again!. Until then, the internet radio is "hung", and it won't let the user change mode, say to play FM radio, until its search for a network times out (which is a very long time). Not sure other users have the same experience. If so I hope Revo can address these "inconveniences" in a software update. Overall I enjoy listening to the SuperConnect and would rate it a "4".
I eventually decided to purchase the Revo SuperConnect, in the hope that it would be able to hold a Wi-Fi connection better. It occasionally loses connection, but it is now infrequent and to that end I am satisfied.
Overall it is a good radio. It seems to be well constructed and should last a very long time. The screen is easy to use and the menu is intuitive. It was easy to hook up to my Wi-Fi network. It comes with a remote, but you can also operate everything directly from the radio itself.
Using the radio/remote, one can browse (cumbersomely) the internet radio stations, and play Spotify (which I do not personally use). There are some presents you can save on the radio which you can program to play as your alarm for example. Compared to the Grace radio, It's not as good because you have less options on what you can play from the radio itself (no Pandora, no Iheart radio, ...) what that means I that you cannot listen to those stations on the Revo without the use of a second device (tablet or phone).
To listen to Pandora, Iheart or whatever else , you need to use the Bluetooth connection on a phone/tablet.. You can do this with individual aps (ie Pandora ap). Works fine, but remember that since you need a tablet/phone to play those stations, you cannot have them as presents on the Revo to use as a wake up station for example.
There is also a Revo ap which you can use from your tablet or phone to operate most of the controls on the radio. With the ap, you can browse internet radios (much easier than from the radio itself), create presets, and play music through the blue tooth player.
Sound wise, it's fine...but do not think it's significantly better than the Grace radio. I would call these about even.
So overall it's a good radio, but I don't think it's worth the $400 they want. The Grace radio is a much better value for most people. The only time I would recommend the Revo is if your router is in a distant location, in which case the Revo has a better antenna to hold the connection.

I needed the RCA connection on the back for a second audio input, but it’s output only. This was not clear from the users’ manual.
Other reviewers here have criticised Revo’s after-sales support; I found it excellent, with an email reply within a couple of hours.
I’d recommend the SuperConnect if you can live with the tiny print, but reluctantly I’m returning mine and may buy the rather pricier Ruark R2 (which has the 2 audio inputs I wanted).
Full marks to Amazon for its returns policy & procedure.
Original Post: It arrived with three feet. Contacted the company and they sent a new one, but I would rather the device had all its bits in the first place. Sounds good - as it should for the money. It uses the same operating system as Roberts Radios. How do they get that Walnut to bend around a ninety degree angle? Works well with Spotify, but not sure Spotify works well with Android phones. Device is quick to boot and change from DAB to Internet etc, screen resolution is good
