The third generation R2 embodies our principles in a timeless compact music system, which looks and sounds sublime.

Whilst the new R2 may give the impression of being similar to its forerunners, through painstaking design, it has evolved so virtually everything about it is new. Notably it incorporates technology which allows you to access your own music and broadcasts and discover new music in a variety of convenient ways.

The new R2 is undoubtedly a technological tour-de-force and one of the most desirable compact music systems available, but what makes the new R2 really special is its sound! Sound quality is our heritage and we believe that technology means little if the end result is a tinny or unnatural sound. The new R2 is a product which we are confident will bring fresh enjoyment to your everyday listening and hence the tagline - ‘made for music’.

In keeping with our desire for excellence, the new R2 will be available from late October through our select dealer network. These include John Lewis, Selfridges and a range of quality audio and design stores across the UK. Find a stockist near you.
