Product Information:

Combining a multi format CD player, DAB/DAB+/FM Tuner, iPod Dock, USB playback port and auxiliary inputs pair with a powerful amplifier and speakers, the R4i is the epitome of a versatile music system using the best of 21st design and technology.

The R4i for Ruark is the result of the desire to build and design the best small audio products. For example most compact music systems use cheap amplifier chipsets (ICís) for simplicity and cost, but for the R4i Ruark designed their own Class A-B amplifier system using discrete component technology. This is a time consuming and complex technique that is usually found in only prestige high quality high value audio separates.

With only a power cable to worry about you can have your R4i running in minutes and enjoying its full and detailed sound that will satisfy even the most discerning listener.

R4i RotoDial remote control: Through careful design Ruark aimed to make their products intuitive to use and with their custom ĎRotoDialí controller all R4i functions can be easily controlled. Exclusively for R4i theyíve 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: R4iís 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 Ruark have also provided a USB port which will play back MP3 audio files downloaded onto USB flash memory sticks.

R4i's high quality phono sockets: On the rear panel Ruark have 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 for devices such as a Bluetooth adaptor or Apples AirPort Express, so music can be wirelessly streamed to R4i. In this respect we highly recommend the QED uPlay Bluetooth Receiver. With a range of up to 10m uPlay allows you to stream music with clarity from most Smart Phones and Tablets to R4i so you can navigate and select your favourite tunes from the comfort of your desk or chair.

R4i's integrated iPod dock: Behind R4iís RotoDial dock Ruark have 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 they have also created a superb adaptor called LAS which combines seamlessly with R4i for a totally unified look. You can find out more about LAS by clicking here. For customers not interested in iPods and suchlike, included is a neat clip in cover to keep the top panel looking clean and tidy.

R4i's enclosure and drive unit: From years spent designing high-end loudspeakers Ruark 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 their drive units are carefully designed and constructed to allow optimum dynamics with a smooth natural frequency response.
