Excerpt: The R4 is Vita's most ambitious design to date, combining a DAB/FM radio, CD player and iPod dock with an amp, stereo speakers and a subwoofer – all in a unit not much wider than a standard audio component. It's available in this ‘Dream White' high-gloss lacquer, or at £50 less in walnut veneer, is mains powered and clearly sees itself as a rival to conventional mini- and micro-systems.
Summary: Vita Audio elbowed its way into the crowded DAB market with its simple and sonically-superior range of radios. But it’s not ready to stop there: the new R4 is a complete tabletop hi-fi system and its most ambitious design to date. The large R4 unit houses not only DAB and FM tuners, but also a CD player, amplifier, stereo speakers and a built-in subwoofer . As befits a music system for the modern age, there’s also an iPod dock. Still after more features?
