Ruark Audio R4 Integrated Music System (Ex Demonstration)
Ex Demonstration... in very good condition complete with original box and packaging.
On looks alone, R4 is desirable, but listen and this emotion grows stronger because R4 produces a quality of sound that you simply will not expect from such a compact design. Intuitive to use and with no wires other than a power lead to worry about, simply plug in and within minutes you’ll have room-filling sound that will satisfy even the most discerning listener.
MULTI-FORMAT CD PLAYER
For music and audio enthusiasts, CD is still one of the best ways to experience quality music and R4 features a multi-format player that will make your CD collection sound better than ever. Besides standard CDs, R4 also plays CD-Rs encoded with WAV, MP3, AAC or WMA music files and also displays track and artist information when this data is available on the disc.
The electronic design of R4 is far removed from the mainstream of compact systems available today where integrated modules are used for simplicity of design and cost. With best sound quality in mind we developed our own discrete technology Class A-B amplifier system and use select audio grade components in critical signal paths. This method is usually only found in high-fidelity audio separates.
HIGH QUALITY RADIO TUNERS
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+ in the UK which is happening now
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.
CONNECT, PLAYBACK AND CHARGE
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.
