Description
Pull up a chair, take the weight off your feet. Stream something new or find those CDs you thought you had forgotten about and listen to something from a while back. The memories, in high definition detail, come flooding back. With R3S it’s time to discover again the music you love and just how enjoyable and relaxing listening can be through a system that will enhance your home and life.

Compact Design, Expansive Sound

Building upon its already impressive performance for 2023, R3 has been further refined and is now named R3S. Outwardly R3S retains the same beautiful compact design with its acoustically tuned handcrafted cabinet and high contrast O-LED display, but inwardly R3S features a powerful new processor and revised circuitry to deliver slicker performance and an even more engaging sound.

Driving the system is a dynamic High Fidelity amplifier combined with our custom NS+ drivers and for R3S we've now included STEREO+ sound processing which we developed for our limited edition R5 Signature. This creates a broader soundstage with depth and realism that extends way beyond R3S’s compact stature. Whatever your taste in music, R3S will fulfil the needs of even the most discerning listener.

 

Music, Radio and Podcasts, Live and On-demand

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 Oktiv. 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 great 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 liner notes. Alongside standard CDs, R3S also plays homemade CDs encoded with WAV and MP3 files and will display track and artist data if this information 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. Our own RS1 subwoofer is a perfect match for R3S adding an extra level of dynamic realism to its already impressive sound.
