Vita Audio R4i iPod Speaker Dock


Vita Audio has announced the R4i integrated music system — iPod speaker dock, CD player, DAB/DAB+ FM Radio with built-in subwoofer. The R4i will be available in a Limited Edition sparkling graphite high gloss lacquer with sliver hue grilles, in addition to rich walnut real wood veneer, high gloss midnight black and dream white finishes.

R4i incorporates a superior FM/DAB/DAB+ receiver with greater sensitivity on all bands together with the ability to receive higher definition DAB+ transmissions, which we believe will ultimately become the standard for terrestrial digital radio transmissions around the globe. Revised audio circuitry optimisation gives greater audio clarity and a new CD suspension arrangement provides improved tracking and shock resistance. These changes bring greater sound resolution and a sound-stage that belies the R4i's compact dimensions. Finally we've redesigned and upgraded R4i's power supply so it meets and exceeds forthcoming EU standby regulations.

Carefully crafted inside as well as out, R4i uses Vita Audio's hi-fi pedigree to produce stunning room-filling sound. Comprising a multi format CD player, iPod dock, USB playback port, DAB, DAB+ and FM tuner and auxiliary inputs combined to a powerful 80-watt audiophile-grade amplifier and speaker system.
