"You don't get many all-in-one systems of this calibre." "The R2 Mk3 is both a gorgeous looking system packed with streaming features, while also delivering an effortlessly musical and richly detailed performance." "The spacious soundstage is populated by a satisfyingly meaty and warm bassline, a soaring top end and a talented midrange that makes voices sound solid and intimate in the same breath." "The handcrafted wooden cabinet and steel front panel fit together beautifully, with the crisp OLED display further adding to the elegant and classy design."
