Summary: Having just returned a Roberts Sound 200 (see my review) I bought this instead, but not from Amazon because I wanted the walnut finish which looks very good and is fifty pounds cheaper. It is larger than the Roberts and as your other reviewers have said, a good-looking piece of equipment.
Summary: Bought this product after my second Roberts equivalent intergrated music system failed (both times the CD player packed in). The Ruark has a similar look and feel, especially with the beautiful black polished casing, but has a far better quality feel to it.
Summary: this is a great bit of kit,the sound from this ruark r4i is just so good you got to try it,the looks match the sound fab,easy setup just screw in the aireal,pull it up,turn on the power,and the dab stations set themselves,best small audio out there.
