R4i Integrated Music System by Ruark

R4i Integrated Music System by Ruark
Comprising a multi format CD player, iPod dock, USB playback port, DAB/DAB+/FM tuner and auxiliary inputs allied to a powerful amplifier/speaker system the R4i is in many ways a traditional music centre, though one designed and engineered for the 21st Century.

The R4i is the result of our desire to design and build the best small audio products available. As an example, most compact systems use amplifier chipsets for simplicity and cost, but for R4i we developed our own Class A-B amplifiers using discrete component technology. This complex technique is usually only found in high quality, high value audio separates.

With no wires to worry about other than a power lead, simply plug R4i in and within minutes you'll have beautiful room filling sound that that will satisfy even the most discerning listener.

Features:
Through careful design we aim to make our products intuitive to use and with our custom ‘RotoDial’ controller all R4i functions can be easily controlled. Exclusively for R4i we've taken our RotoDial concept a stage further so it can be detached and also function as a fantastic hand held remote-control. With its tactile design, it sits comfortably in the hand and sitting on your coffee table it will be a guaranteed talking point.
R4i’s slot loading CD player plays standard music CDs and will also play CD-Rs encoded with WAV, MP3 or WMA music files. With the aid of a computer and suitable program, users can create MP3 playlists and record CDs that will play for many hours. As an alternative we’ve also provided a USB port which will play back MP3 audio files downloaded onto USB flash memory sticks.
On the front panel a headphone socket is provided along with a line input allowing easy connection of other audio devices. Like R2i headphone volume is ‘remembered’ independently from the main speaker volume. On the rear panel we’ve provided two pairs of high quality phono sockets. The first provides output for hook-up to secondary systems and the second provides an additional input for the connection of a CD/TV or for devices such as a Bluetooth adaptor or Apples AirPort Express so audio can be wirelessly streamed to R4i.
Behind R4i’s RotoDial dock we’ve provided an integrated iPod Dock which supports and charges all iPod models produced from January 2004 to September 2012. For customers not interested in iPods and suchlike, we supply a neat clip in cover to keep the top panel looking clean and tidy.
From our years spent designing high-end loudspeakers we understand the importance of cabinet and drive unit design to create a good sound, free from colouration and distortion. The enclosure of R4i is hand-crafted from materials chosen for their exceptional acoustic properties and likewise our drive units are carefully designed and constructed to allow optimum dynamics with a smooth natural frequency response.
