R3S directly supports key streaming services including Spotify Connect*, Amazon Music and Deezer, and with its latest generation Bluetooth 5 receiver every other streaming service available. Bluetooth 5 provides excellent sound quality with a more robust and efficient connection meaning that connected devices will run longer without needing a recharge. The Bluetooth function also seamlessly integrates with the volume control on phones and tablets, so when volume is adjusted this also shows on the display of R3S.
Radio is evolving and with its SmartRadio tuner R3S will maximise your enjoyment of this timeless medium. DAB/DAB+ and FM tuners provide access to local and national broadcasts and its Internet Tuner allows you access high quality streams and stations world-wide. In addition with the growth of Podcasts, R3S now has a source dedicated to this increasingly popular format. For listen again shows and whatever your interest, a podcast to suit your taste is only a few clicks away using our slick RotoDial controller or supplied IR remote. Also available is a free Android and iOS control app called UNDOK. This also allows full control of R3S and is particularly useful for searching Internet radio stations and podcasts.
*R3S will also support Spotify Hi-Fi when made available
CD PLAYBACK AND MUCH MORE
CD is still a fantastic way to enjoy music and with its high specification player R3S allows customers to reconnect with their CDs and rediscover the fun of browsing cover art and the liner notes on the pull-out sleeves. Alongside standard CDs, R3S will also plays self-made CDs encoded with WAV and MP3 files and in addition displays track and artist information when the data is available on the disc.
On the rear panel we’ve included a USB-C playback and charge port, a headphone output and switchable analogue and digital inputs so devices such as a Turntable or TV can be easily connected. For film buffs and lovers of bass orientated music, the line outputs can be switched so they can be used for connection to an active subwoofer. We currently have our own subwoofer under development, but many good quality active subwoofers will work with R3S to add an extra level of dynamic realism to its already impressive sound.
