Product Description

Superb stereo sound quality

DAB, DAB+ and FM Tuner with RDS

Universal iPod Dock supports and charges all iPod models produced from January 2004 onward. iPod Shuffle and earlier models are supported by front and rear auxiliary inputs. R2i also supports and charges all iPhone models, but we recommend they should be used in 'flight mode' to stop TDMA mobile phone noise.

Two switchable auxiliary inputs for MP3 and other audio devices

I bought the R2i after a some research into the product, great score on what hifi, pretty much all good from users comments on-line - with good reason - it's simple and elegant, with an old school, quality built feeling to it - feels like some love had gone into making it!

Sound-wise, it's clear, crisp and punchy, creating a nice sound that easily fills the room (unless you have a particularly BIG room), my only gripe would be that it feels a bit lacking in bass, although it certainly is there - I immediately tried it out with L.F.O. from LFO's Frequencies for it's speaker breaking ability, and while it didnt break the R2i, it didn't tremble the earth!

On a slight downside, the controls are a touch un-refined, and you kinda want to use the jog wheel as the main navigation, but the system insists you use the FF / RW buttons to move through the menu options, which also makes the remote a bit fiddly.

That aside, it's a beautiful thing which I heartily recommend!

This is beautiful-looking, quality hi-fi system which sounds as good as the price suggests. All my music is on an iPod, so I don't need a CD player. Minor criticisms are that the controls for changing source are a bit fiddly and that the front display doesn't show the iPod track info, only that an iPod is connected. Oddly, the controls are actually not as intuitive as the R2i's little brother, the Vita Audio R1 (MkI), which I also own (and which is equally good).

So for that, it loses a star, but for sound quality and looks, it scores top marks. If you're after a great sounding and stylish DAB radio/ iPod dock, then this is a great choice.

I bought this based largely on the gleaming reviews so thought I should write a realistic review.

The good:
It looks great and the build quality is great

The bad:
I read this and thought it sounded petty but the remote really is poor, i got a better one with a £3 ipod dock! It's also annoying that you have to point it so directly for it to work, even with new batteries.
It's out of date, No wi-fi, internet radio or even bluetooth at this price is pretty shocking in this day and age .
My biggest gripe is the sound "fills the room" they say, "amazing for it's size!", no it is not. Go and try a Bose, I have kept mine because I have proper speakers in the same room and it looks pretty but please, if you fancy one go and compare it to a FAR more up to date Bose Touch or even the little Bose speaker which is about £160, there really is no comparison. And, if like me, you were also considering the Geneva radio that got great reviews on What Hifi that's even worse, just to save you the hassle. Seriously though, go to a decent shop and compare the sound for yourself. The Vita si quite sharp and crisp in sound but the bass is seriously lacking and kind of resonates when it tries too hard.
