Vita Audio R4i review

10 May 2011
  • Summary: The only drawback of the Vita R4i is its price. Its entry level cost of £549 puts it at the top end of the iPod speaker price range, although to be fair its audio and design qualities are high-end, too. If all your music is on an iPod and you can drop a few degrees on audio depth and volume the R2i looks a bargain in comparison, and takes up a lot less space.

  • Excerpt: I first saw the Ruark Audio range of one-box iPod speakers in a very trendy design shop, and dismissed it as just a pricy looker before I did some research and read some of the product’s great reviews from serious hi-fi magazines and websites.

Ruark Audio R4i

What Hi-Fi?
1 June 2011
  • Excerpt: It may look like a 2008 vintage Vita R4 (there was no ‘i’ on the box or the device) but the limited edition ‘Sparkling Graphite’ finish (which costs £80 more) confirms this as an updated R4i. The maple, black and white options remain available – all at £550. Features remain similar – iPod dock, CD player and a tuner now supporting DAB+ – but internal changes include revised audio circuitry, a new CD suspension and an upgraded power supply.
  • Pros: Clear vocals, spacious, three-dimensional presentation, impressive bass, premium quality
  • Cons: Remote could do with a re-think, can get flustered at very high volumes

Vita Audio R4i review

Pocket Lint
19 April 2011
  • Excerpt: Vita Audio is a manufacturer with a very particular speciality: tabletop radios, or rather luxury tabletop radios aimed at customers who value design and performance above all - and are willing to pay princely sums for those things. The R4i is Vita Audio’s new flagship music machine.
  • Pros: Looks, build quality, performance
  • Cons: Lack of features for a device of this price, not "Made for iPhone"

Review: Vita Audio R4i

24 April 2011
  • Summary: De R4 is gemakkelijk in gebruik. Het design spreekt me enorm aan al twijfel ik, wanneer je de versie met houtmotief koopt, of het design van de afstandsbediening ook echt wel bij het ontwerp van de R4 zelf past. Vergeten we deze kwestie, dan levert Vita Audio een product af met een sublieme audio kwaliteit dat voldoende volume op kan bouwen voor de woonkamer, zonder dat de kwaliteit verloren gaat.
  • Pros: + Mooi, warm geluid, + Erg simpel te bedienen, + Strak uiterlijk, + Handige iOS dock
  • Cons: - FM Antenne past niet bij het design

  • Excerpt: Vita Audio R4 är en liten men seriös allt-i-ett-anläggning. iPod-docka, CD-spelare och internetradio går hand i hand med inbyggda högtalare. Och visst låter det trivsamt.
