Made for Music - The New R2
The third generation R2 embodies our principles in a compact audio system that looks and sounds sublime. With the new R2 our design evolution continues, but notably it incorporates technology that enables you to access and play your music and broadcasts in a variety of convenient ways.
Whilst the new R2 may look similar to the earlier models, through careful consideration and design it has evolved so virtually everything about it is new.
Outwardly, the handcrafted casework and metal panels have been revised for a sleeker look and the LCD display has been replaced with a modern OLED (organic light-emitting diode) display, which provides exceptional text clarity from any viewing angle. On top of the new R2 sits our improved RotoDial control system. Originally developed for the R7, the new control system is highly intuitive to operate, while its minimalist design further enhances the new R2’s elegant look.
New internal technology brings further enhancements. Radio performance via DAB, DAB+ and FM is exceptional, while Internet and Bluetooth capabilities mean you can access radio stations from around the world and stream music directly to the new R2 from numerous devices. Multiple R2s connected to a single wireless network can simultaneously stream music from a central computer, creating an easy to manage, multi-room system. In addition, the new model features a USB playback port and this socket can also be used as a charging port compatible with most smartphones.
Last but not least, the new R2 features Spotify Connect as a dedicated source. With a Premium account, you can use the Spotify app to select R2 as your sound source and then control playback using R2’s RotoDial, even if your smartphone or tablet is turned off! This great facility saves device battery power and if R2 is turned off or the source is changed, then Spotify playback can be resumed when R2 is reactivated.
