Very smartly built and well thought-out, the true glory here is sound that needs no special pleading on grounds of convenience – full bodied, neutral and detailed.

Our high contrast display with large format clock makes reading time and program information clearly legible, even from afar.

 On the front panel a headphone socket is provided along with a line input allowing easy connection of auxiliary audio devices. A useful function is that the headphone volume is ‘remembered’ independently from the main speaker volume, so when headphones are plugged in the volume reverts to the last used level.

 On the rear panel we’ve provided two pairs of high quality phono sockets. The first provides output for recording or hook-up to secondary systems and the second provides an additional input for the connection of a CD/TV or a Bluetooth adaptor, so music can be wirelessly streamed to R2i.

 Rather than plastics the R2i enclosure is handcrafted from wood based materials which we know give the best sound quality from our years designing hi fidelity loudspeaker systems. Clad in a choice of walnut veneer or high gloss lacquers, this material also feels natural and wonderful to touch.

 Using our custom designed RotoDial, controls are laid out in an easy to use manner that feels good to use and importantly adds to the stylish look of R2i. Just behind the RotoDial we’ve provided an integrated iPod Dock which supports and charges all iPod models produced from January 2004 to September 2012. For the latest models with Lightning connector we’ve created a superb adaptor called LAS which combines seamlessly with R2i for a totally unified look. You can find out more about LAS by clicking here. For customers not interested in iPods and suchlike, we supply a neat clip in cover to keep the top panel looking clean and tidy.

 Completing R2i is a compact remote control that enables all key R2i and iPod functions to be set and operated from the comfort of a chair or bed.
