R4 features a quality DAB/FM tuner and with DAB+ also included, it can be used in countries such as Australia, Denmark, France, Germany and Norway where this updated system is now being used. DAB+ also ensures that R4 is future-ready for new emerging digital markets and also for the roll out of DAB+ which is happening now in the UK.
R4 features aptX technology which partners with Bluetooth so you can stream music directly from compatible devices to R4 with CD quality sound from a distance of up to 10 metres. Bluetooth’s ease of use has made it the foremost method for wireless audio streaming and it works with virtually all leading music Apps including Spotify, Apple Music and BBC iPlayer Radio. Most importantly sound quality over Bluetooth with R4 is outstanding.
R4 has great connectivity allowing auxiliary devices such as a turntable, Amazon Dot, Google Chromecast or Apple AirPort Express to be easily connected. Also featured is a multi-purpose USB socket which allows you to charge smartphones and also playback music stored on a memory stick or portable hard drive in a variety of popular audio codecs. In particular R4 makes a superb TV sound system, with its optical digital input providing a convenient connection point for most modern TVs.
In our opinion products covered with switches and buttons look confusing and unsophisticated, so our trademark RotoDial controller provides a truly stylish control solution. Also with all of our models mirroring this interface, whichever model you own, you will intuitively know how to operate each. In addition, R4’s custom remote control allows all major functions to be operated without moving from the comfort of your chair.
Perhaps too big for your average bedside table, but on a chest of drawers R4 will make any bedroom sound better. With R4's remote control you can operate functions from the comfort of your bed and with programmable dual alarms you’ll be able to wake or doze exactly as you want. Connect your bedroom TV to R4 and you’ll have a blissful audio/visual retreat.
With the latest technology Organic LED (OLED) display, programme and menu information are shown on R4 with vivid clarity. The display retains its high contrast at any viewing angle and the display brightness can be adjusted to suit your requirements, both in standby mode and when active.
