Vita Audio R4 review

 

Vita's new R4 system is ideal where only one box will do

Well specified ; Offers very fine value ; Multiple sources ; Lively sound ; Attractive design

Can be a little shrill at times ; The remote control takes some getting used to and it uses non-standard batteries

Expert review by:

Vita Audio R4

 

A CD player, a DAB radio, an iPod dock. The R4 certainly ticks all the boxes but is it truly a Hi-Fi replacement?

The R4's screen is another feature inherited from the R1 and R2 but this is something we definitely don't welcome. Viewed straight on it's fine but, being an LCD display, it's viewing angles are mediocre at best and there's obvious backlight bleed...

With a generally superb sound quality and one of the classiest builds ever made, only the high price tag and questionable performance with heavier music would put us off snapping one up

Sound quality ; Luxurious design ; Smooth bass for a system of this type

Not great at handling complex rock and metal

Warm, rich sound ; simple operation, excellent build

Plays things a bit safe ; challenged by more conventional systems

As well as looking gloriously stylish, the R4 is reassuringly sturdy and solid, which seems to help it produce its deep, powerful bass (there's a built-in subwoofer), which never sounds woolly or overdone. Treble is clear and bright without a trace of...

Warm bass and bright treble. Stylish retro looks

Expensive. Slightly irritating remote control

Expert review by:

CD player, USB port (for playing MP3 and WMA audio files), DAB tuner, iPod dock, intuitive RotoDial remote, two auxiliary inputs, 80W of power output - these are the features of the Vita Audio R4. Size and weight? Well they're 145x450x255mm and 8kg of...

If you like your bass to sound like artillery fire, while your treble crisply tinkles like a laughing lady playing a lute amidst the barrage, then this luxury beauty is for you. Vita Audio R4 is tagged with Vita Audio, iPod dock, DAB radio and CD...
