Score 8.0/10
Good points:
It's a beautifully made product, and looks amazing in my bedroom. It's louder than I'll ever need it to be and maintains sound quality well at high volumes.
Bad points:
Well, it's not cheap. But you do pay for what you get!

Tim, Newbury Music lover

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Practical as it is so easy to move about when required and so easy to use.
Bad points:
It has excellent but not incredible sound quality but can never match a separated unit unless a design can be found to make the sound more disparate. A small compromise for the portability. However I think the price is a little steep when you can buy an excellent midi system for a third of the price.

Confirmed purchaser Casual listener

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
The product is by far and away the best sounding sysytem I have ever heard. At ALL volume levels, the sound is so consistant - what ever the music type. A previous review complains of the sound at low to mid randge volume levels but listening to Richard Hawley, Andy Williams and other easy listening artists on volume 4 I have not noticed any hissing. The DAB reception is very good and I can pick up 30+ stations. Make sure you check your postcode for DAB signal strength though, some areas do not have as strong a signal. My ipod sounds a dream and doubles up as an internet radio a treat. Plugged my bluray player to it also and once again the sound blew me away. As you can read, I can not rate this product highly enough!

Manufacturer's Description

One glance at R4 and you’ll desire one! Listen and this emotion grows stronger because R4 produces a quality of sound that you simply will not expect from such an attractive and compact design.

Comprising a multi format CD player, iPod dock, USB playback port, DAB/FM tuner and auxiliary inputs allied to a powerful amplifier/speaker system the R4 is in many ways a traditional music centre, though one designed and engineered for the 21st Century. With no wires other than a power lead to worry about simply plug R4 into a suitable mains socket and within minutes you’ll have beautiful room filling sound that that will satisfy even the most discerning listener.

Through careful design we endeavour to make the operation of our products as easy as possible. Just select the mode you require on our custom RotoDial interface and all R4 and iPod functions can be intuitively controlled. Exclusively for R4 we’ve taken our RotoDial concept a stage further so if desired it can be detached and also function as a fantastic remote-control. With its superb tactile design it is totally unique and sitting on your coffee table it will be a guaranteed talking point.
