Shrouded in gleaming aluminium and molded rubber, the Revo K2 ($470) tower not only out-looks other, plebeian docks, but also offers access to virtually every radio signal under the sun including old-fashioned over-the-air and internet streaming stations including last.fm. Perfect for your morning dose of NPR. Besides a dearth of plastics, the K2 also features music streaming capabilities from your PC or Mac, and disperses 360 degree room-filling beats thanks to four neodymium balanced-mode radiator speaker drivers and dual Class-D amps. The visual icing: a monolithic OLED display for seeing whats on, a motorized Apple device dock, and plenty of connectivity options including RCA ports and optical-input and a full alarm clock functionality. Just don’t call it a Fawlty Tower.
