The Revox Joy S118 stereo reproduction offers a 2 x 25 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 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 S118 offers two additional digital audio inputs.
The Revox Joy S118 comes with one optical and one coaxial digital input for traditional audio sources.

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.
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.
