Gira RDS flush-mounted radio,
E2, pure white glossy, operating top unit black glass appearance


The new Gira RDS flush-mounted radio just sits in the wall, like a light switch or a socket outlet. That avoids annoying cables and keeps work surfaces and counters free.

Its capacitive sensor field and the high-quality display for information and station-specific data make intuitive operation especially convenient. The loudspeaker has a completely new design concept to give the radio a pure, voluminous sound, even in excellent stereo quality when the optionally available Gira supplementary loudspeaker is connected. The loudspeakers can be installed directly next to the radio operating element or installed at a distance of up to 20 m when connected with a 2-wire cable. The radio automatically detects connected loudspeakers and switches between stereo and mono mode.

New. Additional design varients starting January 2012

New design variants are available for the Gira RDS flush-mounted radio, starting January 2012. The expanded range includes the colours pure white glossy, cream white glossy and colour aluminium for the System 55 operating top unit and the variant black glass appearance for the loudspeaker.

Light and music at the press of a button.

The functionality of the radio can be expanded with the integrated 230 V auxiliary input. If for example an automatic control switch or the bathroom lighting is connected to it, the radio is automatically switched on and off together with the light.

Performance features
  • Frequency range: 87.50 to 107.90 MHz
  • RDS function: if the received station transmits the RDS signal, the station name will be shown in large letters and the station frequency in small letters on the display. In this case, the current time also appears without having to make settings for this purpose.
  • Capacitive sensor technology: the radio buttons need only be lightly touched for operation. Especially convenient: the On/Off surface does not need to be specifically touched to switch on the radio, but instead anywhere on the entire operating surface.
  • Sleep mode: the radio switches off automatically 30 minutes after the sleep mode is activated.
  • Station presets: during initial operation the two strongest stations are automatically stored in the two station presets. These can then be reassigned as desired by pressing and holding the memory button.

Installation

  • The radio insert and the loudspeaker can be installed individually in 1-gang cover frames or together in a 2 to 5-gang cover frame, both vertically and horizontally.
  • Each radio component is installed in its own flush-mounted device box
    (We recommend: deep flush-mounted wall box)
  • The radio insert requires a 230 V power supply
  • The loudspeaker and the Gira supplementary loudspeaker for stereo operation can each be
    installed a maximum of 20 metres from the operating section using a 2-wire cable.
  • The optional cinch socket outlet is connected to the radio insert at a maximum distance of 3 metres with a 3-wire cable.
Installation in combination with other electronic components may negatively affect the reception quality
