Introducing the fourth-generation of the R1 deluxe Bluetooth radio. Each generation of R1 has been an evolution over the predecessor and the new R1 Mk4 makes a giant leap in both design and performance.
The R1 Mk4's cabinet has been developed through a new moulding process allowing for an exact profile of the enclosure. Strong and acoustically inert, the cabinet provides a fresh feel and is the perfect surface for the new Light Cream and Espresso finishes. The R1 Mk4 also features a linear amplifier along with a NS+ driver and adaptive equalisation which produces an eminently pleasing sound at all volume levels. Complimenting the design is a hand-crafted slatted wood grille bringing further sophistication and creating a timeless aura.
Our previous R1 models were critically acclaimed for their sound but with R1 Mk4 we have further raised the bar!
With our heritage in high-fidelity loudspeakers we understand the complexities of enclosure and drive unit design. Our latest neodymium NS+ driver provides a smooth and extended frequency response and with R1 Mk4’s tuned enclosure it delivers an impressive bass performance.
Driving the system is a punchy Class A/B linear amplifier for exceptional dynamics and eminently listenable sound that is provided at all volume levels.
Our crisp OLED display clearly shows time, alarm and programme information. It auto adjusts to suit ambient light levels, making it a perfect bedside companion.Radio reception is excellent and the Bluetooth receiver allows you to enjoy R1’s great sound from anywhere. FM parameters can be set to suit US and Japanese needs and a multilingual user interface makes R1 a truly international proposition.
Optional compact remote control available for R1 Mk4 and R2 Mk4. The remote features 4 direct access Preset buttons so you can easily store and select your favourite radio stations. Please note this remote control is only compatible with the R1 MK4 and R2 Mk4.
This is a beast of a little radio and I love it so much, this is a second one that I bought for the kitchen. Beautiful, clean and full sound with easy to use interface, sweet design, pretty screen and graphic plus super easy to use controls. I searched high and low for a cracking’ radio with customisable alarms (almost no other I’ve found can do that!) that has no extra whistles or bells and does what it was made to do with gusto. I was not sure about the Beach Hut Blue colour, but it looks as brilliant as it sounds. Customer service and value was excellent too!
Clear sound - using as clock radio - and clock easy to read at night. Has headphone jack for under pillow speaker. Very good and presents a bit smaller - perfect size.
I am so pleased by the quality of this product. My only criticism – for the price, the backup battery pack should have been included....
