Awesome audio quality
For many decades now, Revox has developed excellent sound quality outputs for its amplifiers. And Revox has also remained true to this tradition with the Revox Joy products.
The Revox Joy S120 stereo reproduction offers a full 2 x 120 watt sinus. The fully integrated output, in pulse width modulation technology, enables reproduction of the highest level that is clear and transparent and also powerful in the bass range.
A further feature is that the Revox Joy products can adjust the current Revox speakers perfectly to the amplifier. Fine adjustments to the speaker frequency response ensure musical enjoyment that is even more precise and at the same time, softer.
In addition, the positioning of the Revox speakers within the room can be entered, in order to optimise the bass properties. This prevents unwelcome resonance in the bass range caused by the speakers being placed close to a wall or in a corner.
The latest version of the Revox Joy S120 also supports high resolution audio formats up to 192 kHz / 24 Bit. Experience music with your Joy as it was recorded in the studio. Perfect sound in unique Studio Master Quality.
The world as a guest in your home
The Revox Joy gives you easy access to a wide range of digital content from your home network and from the Internet.
Experience music and podcasts from around the world through the Integrated Internet radio. More than 12,000 radio stations and over 2,000,000 podcasts that are updated and extended daily are just a few button-presses away. You can configure your personal Internet radio and podcast favourites on the S208 remote control or on the Revox website under Online Services to match your own particular requirements.
You can stream your music from external storage over the Ethernet network, in conjunction with DLNA and UPnP AV compatible servers. It doesn't matter whether these are located on a NAS or some other storage, so long as a corresponding UPnP AV service is installed.
The USB connection is principally used for connecting mobile music players such as an iPod, iPhone or iPad to the Revox Joy. The Revox range includes a suitable docking station for iPod and iPhone products. Of course, you can also connect a USB stick containing your favourite music and enjoy that with the Revox Joy.
Music files can be streamed over the LAN or WLAN connection. Revox strongly recommends the use of the LAN connection because it always offers greater stability than a WLAN connection.
Connection options Revox Joy
As well as the top-class streaming option with LAN, WLAN and USB, the Revox Joy also offers a range of traditional audio inputs and outputs.
Two analogue AUX inputs facilitate the integration of numerous traditional audio sources. There are also audio inputs for connecting products such as the Revox Joy audio server or even an AppleTV. For this purpose, there are two optical and two coaxial SPDIF inputs available.
Of course, all audio inputs of the Revox Joy S120 can be levelled out and the volume difference between the different sources balanced accordingly.
A controlled pre-amp output offers further possibilities within the area of traditional entertainment electronics. A digital SPDIF output and a subwoofer output complete the range of Revox Joy connectivity options.
The Joy S120 MKII has an additional audio/control input allowing the full integration of the CD player. The targeted switch-on and -off as well as the triggering of individual titles is possible both via the remote control and the Joy Apps.
Moreover, the Joy MKII provides an integrated Bluetooth receiver, which is compatible with the Bluetooth standards SBC and APT-X. Transfer music from your Smartphone or Tablet wirelessly to the Joy Bluetooth receiver and control your music at will.
The Revox Joy is thus open to the contents of the iPod or streaming services such as Spotify, Napster or Deezer.
Simplest operation of the Joy products
Revox offers two solutions for the operation of Revox Joy products:
The most convenient and the easiest option is to use the Revox Joy S208 remote control. Operating the system and selecting music is simplicity itself, thanks to the informative colour display and the classical buttons on the remote control.
Alternatively Revox offers an iPhone/iPad and Android App alongside the remote control, which can be used to select the multimedia streaming content. As well the configuration of the Joy devices can be effected by means of the different Apps. And in order to have your Joy under control, only one App can access one Joy device at once.
For all Joy devices Revox offers the so-called Playqueue. Store the titles that you want to listen to into this Playqueue while browsing, without starting these titles immediately.
The Playqueue can be compared to a Jukebox function, allowing the creation of a long list of your favourite titles. You can store these lists on your Smartphone/Tablet and play them back at other times or even with other Joy products in your network.
The internal values of the Revox Joy
The Revox Joy doesn't just stand out as a result of its timeless design and the high-quality materials used to build it. Only the best was good enough for what goes on inside as well.
The fully integrated output, in pulse width modulation technology, is amongst the best to be found on the market. Large cooling elements are not needed with this technology because the PWM technology has an efficiency factor of over 90%. Music lovers can hear and experience the result of this intensive development work, every time they listen to their Revox Joy.
A solid toroidal transformer has sufficient reserves available to deliver high-volume musical enjoyment and makes a significant contribution to the good sound of the Revox Joy. Revox has integrated a power supply unit that takes the power consumption right down to 0.5 watts in standby mode. Good for the environment and good for your energy costs.
Exclusively high-quality components have also been used for the streaming function. Revox can ensure a long component working life by the use of sophisticated heat dissipation within the powerful streaming function.
The sophisticated assembly work that went into the audio inputs has a particular significance for the Revox Joy. All signals are cleanly routed, in order to have the least possible interferences throughout the complete system and to achieve the best possible audio quality.
If several Revox Joy products are used in one house, these can be controlled with a single S208 remote control if required.
The maximum number of devices that can be controlled by one remote control is limited to 24. This number is made up of a number of wireless, radio-signal sources (Revox Joy products) and infrared sources.
In total, up to 24 devices can be programmed per remote control. The total number of Revox Joy products and IR devices is limited to 24. If, for example, four Revox Joy products are operated through one remote control, up to a further 20 IR devices can also be added.
Eight zones (rooms) can be created per remote control. Up to 4 devices can be assigned to each zone through hotkeys. This comfort function allows the most important devices in a room to be reached through one display.
A maximum of six remote controls can be paired with one Revox Joy product. If further remote controls are paired with the Revox Joy, the "oldest" remote control is dropped from the list.
The little helpers
Revox offers many small but important and useful features within the Revox Joy range of functions.
Two alarm clocks can be set up to meet your individual requirements, e.g. one for working days and one for a later time, to give you a bit of a lie-in at the weekends. You can define the source and the required volume for each of the alarm settings.
Using a Sleep function, the Revox Joy can be switched off at night after a preset time, allowing you to fall gently to sleep to the sound of your favourite music.
Revox has even thought about power-napping and has integrated a timer option. This can be set to switch the system on after periods of up to 60 minutes.
Your favourite music always under your control
You can access your individual favourites through the "My music" option. These can be a radio station, an album, a playlist or even individual pieces of music.
You can configure up to 18 entries. Revox recommends using sources for this quick-access list that are always available in the network. Sources that change their content dynamically, like an iPod for instance, are not best suited for this function.
Revox also offers access to the last entries that have been listened to, for each music source. This list contains ten entries. Under Internet radio, you find the last ten stations that were listened to and under Music server, the last ten tracks to have been selected.
Both these functions add to the enjoyment during navigation, because you always have quick access to your favourite music.
