Is there a good German/English Dictionary with phonetic pronunciation guides?

I mainly want this for the German 'r,' as the text to speech is often less-than-helpful when it comes to the actual sound of the r to use.

By this, I mean a website on which I can search a word and be able to see phonetic guides with symbols such as ʁ, etc.

Danke :)

PONS is a very reliable dictionary with broad transcriptions.

The Duden Aussprachew├Ârterbuch is probably the most comprehensive resource, but it doesn't contain any definitions, it's not free, and you can only get it as an actual book, as a pdf or as a Windows/Mac app.

Strangely, it's easier online to find audio recordings than IPA transcriptions. http://wiktionary.org/ is the most extensive source for German IPA transcriptions I've found so far. http://duden.de/ sometimes gives them, but only (it seems) for words that they consider that a native speaker might have trouble with.

I like Linguee auf Deutsch (see http://www.linguee.com/german-english/translation/wahr.html and http://www.linguee.de/deutsch-englisch/uebersetzung/reden.html for German R sounds). It has very decent pronunciations, but alas does not have phonetic symbols. However it has good translations also. I very much like this site and I find it user-friendly.
