Gira RDS flush-mounted radio

Music directly out of the wall

The new Gira RDS flush-mounted radio simply sits in the wall as light switches or socket outlets do. This prevents annoying cables and keeps work surfaces and counters free. The loudspeaker has a completely new design concept to give the radio a pure, voluminous sound, and in excellent stereo quality as well when the optionally available Gira supplementary loudspeaker is connected.

Its capacitive sensor field and the high-quality display for information and station-specific data make the intuitive operation especially convenient and easy.

Loudspeaker

The loudspeakers can be installed directly next to the radio operating element or, when connected with a 2-wire cable, installed at a distance of up to 20 m. The radio automatically detects connected loudspeakers and switches automatically between stereo and mono mode.

Light and music at the press of a button

Radio functionality 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.

Can be combined with the Gira docking station

The RDS flush-mounted radio can easily be expanded with the Gira docking station. It allows external music sources to be connected to the Gira RDS radio or a stereo system. It's special because music is transferred wirelessly via Bluetooth so that mobile end devices needn't be inserted directly. Equipped with three exchangeable top units, the docking station can be used as a universal charging device for various smartphones and MP3 players. The AUX output is used to connect to the RDS flush-mounted radio directly to play music.

Installation

  • The radio insert and the loudspeaker can be installed individually in 1-gang cover frames or together in a 2-gang to 5-gang cover frame, both vertically and horizontally.
  • Each radio component is installed in its own flush-mounted device box (recommendation: deep flush-mounted).
  • The radio insert requires a 230 V power supply
  • The loudspeaker and the Gira additional 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 can negatively affect the reception quality.

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 start-up 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.
