Top Quality Audio Streaming
Numerous audio streaming services provide music according to individual preferences – around-the-clock. For the Joy family Revox decided on the integration of Tidal, a music service offering top audio quality and thus being perfectly in line with the Revox brand values. Renowned musicians stand behind Tidal, which fits in perfectly. Needless to say that you can play back any other audio streaming service on a Joy via Bluetooth.
You can operate and configure the Revox Joy Audio Network Receiver in two different ways. Either with the S208 Remote Control with colour display for browsing the lists and displays of information about music tracks, e.g. album covers or Internet radio station logos. Or through the Universal Joy Apps for iPhone, iPod touch, iPad and Android devices. 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.
Revox Room Compensation
The discretely constructed PWM (Pulse Width Modulation) outputs up to 2 x 120 Watt provide an impressive confirmation of the many years of competence that Revox has in amplifier development. A particular highlight is that the individual frequency responses of all Revox speakers are stored in the Revox Joy. This means that a specific frequency correction can be carried out for each Revox speaker, resulting in perfect sound quality. And thanks to Revox room compensation, the amplifier's bass characteristics are adapted to the speaker and to its position in the room.
Lots of bass if it is free-standing; a reduction in the bass components if it is close to a wall. For the Joy family Revox offers a big choice of different loudspeaker products. Starting at the Re:sound G mini for smaller rooms with a surprising sound up to the Re:sound G prestige for the best audio experience. As well Revox offers a number of installation speakers and invisible speakers. For more details please visit the Revox loudspeaker website.
Connectivity at its Best
The Revox Joy offers a very attractive choice of audio inputs to find solutions for almost all sources in the audio video field. Up to two analogue inputs, four digital inputs (2 x optical plus 2 x coax), USB, an optional FM/DAB+ radio and as well a Pre-Out or a Sub-Out. The latest generation S119 and S120 network receivers offer a Bluetooth input, which allows wireless music playback to the Joy device from any Smartphone or Tablet supporting the Bluetooth audio standard SBC or APTX.
Moreover, the Joy MKII offers an audio/control interface for the Joy CD player. By means of this interface the Joy CD player can be operated by the Joy remote control or by one of the Joy Apps. The Joy can be connected to the network via LAN and WiFi. Over the network the Revox Joy can stream up to 24 bit high res music for the best possible audio quality.
Personal Music Archive
The way to create the perfect audio library has never been as easy as it is with the Revox Joy Audio Server. All you have to do is a one-time definition of your audio quality and then just insert a CD. The server starts the recording immediately and after about ten minutes ejects the CD again automatically. Even metadata is fetched from the Internet and stored during this short period of time. If required, you can optimise this data during the recording process and adapt it to your own requirements.
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 Revox Joy speaks the language of clear minimalism. With its puristic design in matt white, black or silver/black, it integrates itself harmoniously into any stylish environment. Conspicuously beautiful: clad in quality glass and aluminium. Together, they give the Revox Joy its very special touch.
Revox Joys Internal Values
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.
S208 for Several Rooms
If several Revox Joy products are used in one house, these can be controlled with a single S208 remote control if required. 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. 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 expectations of what a high quality audio system has to deliver are not just determined by personal preferences. The size of the space where the Joy is going to be deployed is also a decisive criterion when it comes to choosing your system. And for that reason, we are presenting the Revox Joy in three versions, S118 (2 x 25 Watts) / S119 (2 x 60 Watts) and S120 (2 x 120 Watts). This then gives you the freedom to choose the solution that is right for you.
