Vita R1 DAB/FM radio

Vitaaudio R1 DAB/FM radio review

The Vita R1 is dressed to impress and is incredibly well built, featuring a solid metal front fascia with a satin finish.

Built and designed by a team from high-end audio equipment manufacturer Ruark, the Vitaaudio R1 DAB radio is available now.

The Vitaaudio R1 oozes quality, with its simple yet classy styling. The casing of the radio comes in a variety of finishes - cherrywood or walnut veneer, or grey or red lacquer finish.

The radio's downward-firing port ensures a warm, pleasing sound that sounds equally as good with speech and music stations.

Equipped with front-mounted stereo headphone and line input sockets (the latter for MP3 player connection for playback through the radio), the R1 looks very understated. The simple "rotodial" system, consisting of preset, alarm, station selection and timer buttons around a main control (which at the moment simply controls the volume) gives the radio a minimalist, uncluttered appearance.

Around the back, gold plated stereo phono outputs mean you can use the Vita R1 as a dedicated tuner with a hi-fi system. There's a tiny autotune button for seeking out DAB multiplexes and it's here you'll also find a port for adding an extra speaker for stereo sound.

Changing stations is very intuitive buttons labelled up/down and OK. Setting and changing alarm and timer settings involves short or long presses of the dedicated buttons. Ten favourite stations can be committed to memory simply by holding the numbered buttons in for a short time.

In summary, the R1 is an appealing, high quality DAB/FM radio that would look equally as fine on a desk or bedside table.
