It was back in the year 2008 that T+A introduced the first Caruso, and within a very short time the device won numerous prizes, gaining absolute cult status due to its unique overall design. In 2020 a new generation of the Caruso appeared, and this constituted the greatest advance yet in the history of these devices: the new version represented a completely new development – both externally and in technical terms. Although its heritage remains clear, the new Caruso epitomised the transformation of the machine from an all-in-one device to a series of individual products.
The Caruso R continues the theme of the Caruso in a logical manner, and this is the key to its pleasantly familiar look. The T+A Aluminium Framework provides great precision and physical strength, while its external dimensions hark back to the first Caruso of 2008. The new 7” HD screen effectively extends the Caruso R, and gives it a look of restrained elegance even without loudspeakers.
7 Inch Touchscreen
The Caruso R’s command centre is the T+A NavigatorOS: a 7” touch-screen combines all elements of the control system, and is capable of displaying cover art directly on the machine itself. The thinking behind the system architecture of NavigatorOS was the requirement to minimise the number of individual operations. The Settings menu unites all the machine’s settings, from screen brightness to tone controls for bass, mid-range, treble and loudness. An additional Playscreen is available, which succeeds in visualising and informing at the same time: metadata have never been displayed in such fine form as here. In addition to touch-screen control the Caruso R can be operated using the T+A CarusoNavigator app or the FM Caruso remote control handset, which is supplied as standard.
The slot for the modern CD disc mechanism is located above the touch-panel. It analyses the disc’s TOC data, which are then passed to Gracenote; the Playscreen can then display cover art and metadata for many CDs.
