Ash, West Wimbledon

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Fantastic design and great sound for something so small - def recommend it...
Bad points:
Switching between sources is not as easy as it could be e.g. DAB to IPOD and find it difficult to switch songs on the IPOD from the remote control - would be great to have a dial that controls IPOD on the remote.

Andy, Kent Music fan

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Sound is Clear, Crisp, and rich. The volume capability is remarkable for such a small item. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but I think this is a stunning looking piece of kit, and the walnut veneer version I bought looks fantastic.
Bad points:
You do get some distortion at top volumes when using with loudness on and 3d sound on. these to gadgets are OK at low volumes to enrich the sound, but if you are turning the volume up, these features are most definitely best left off.

Manufacturer's Description

Beautiful to hear and beautiful to behold

Building on the strengths of our award winning R2 our new R2i Tabletop Stereo embodies our principles of performance and design in a beautifully crafted package that sounds and looks sublime.

With a new DAB/DAB+/FM tuner, universal iPod dock and auxiliary inputs, R2i is now a complete music solution and perfect for customers seeking high quality audio reproduction in small to medium sized settings.

R2i iPod dock and RotoDial Controller integrated iPod dock and RotoDial Controller

The enclosure of R2i is machined and hand-crafted from materials chosen for their exceptional acoustic properties and finished in Rich Walnut veneer or Dream White and Midnight Black high gloss lacquers. These finishes combine perfectly with the cool steel panels and mesh grilles to create a tactile feel to match R2i’s elegant design. Our distinctive RotoDial controller sits atop of the unit making operation simple and intuitive

R2i’s high contrast display high contrast display with large format clock

The look of R2i exudes style, but sonically it’s equally impressive. Our custom made high-fidelity drive units and electronics with 3D sound processing provide a scale and quality of sound that belies the R2i’s compact dimensions. With our new tuner, DAB and FM performance is exceptional, but R2i is also ready to receive DAB+ transmissions making R2i a future-proof investment.

R2i’s phono sockets Gold-plated phono sockets on rear

R2i also has other quality features that have been carefully considered. Our new high contrast display with large format clock makes time reading clearly legible even from afar. On the front panel a headphone socket along with a line input allows headphones and other audio devices to be easily connected. Usefully the volume of the headphones output is ‘remembered’ independently from the main volume, so whenever headphones are inserted the volume reverts to the users last selected level. On the rear panel we’ve provided two pairs of high quality gold-plated phono sockets. The first provides output for recording or hook-up to secondary systems and the second provides an additional input for the permanent connection of a CD/MP3 player or TV/DVD. 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.
