Call us about this product

The award-winning R2 Mk3 is the perfect ‘all in one’ music system. Alongside DAB, FM and Internet tuners it features Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and Spotify Connect technologies which allow you to wirelessly stream your music. Undoubtedly a technological marvel, but what makes R2 really special is its sound, a compact music system which will bring new joy to your listening experience.

"The R2 Mk3 is one of the most gorgeous all in one music systems we have come across. It is a system that will fit into any home and that lush punchy sound is just so much fun to listen to. We want one." What Hi-Fi

SPOTIFY CONNECT BUILT IN

R2 has Spotify the world’s leading music streaming service built in and with a Spotify Premium account you can select R2 as your playback device and then control the music using R2’s RotoDial, remote control or via the Ruark LINK control app. With a vast library of over 20 million tracks, Spotify Premium and R2 will allow you to discover new music and enjoy old favourites with R2’s award winning sound.

WORLD RADIO

For local and national radio broadcasts R2’s DAB and FM tuner provides excellent performance and with DAB+ technology also built in, R2 can be used in countries where this updated format is now being used. DAB+ also ensures that R2 is future-ready for the implementation of this technology in the UK. For international broadcasts, R2’s Internet tuner allows you access to stations and podcasts world-wide, so whether you’re into classical, rock or jazz, with R2’s search capability you will quickly find stations to suit your needs.

GREAT CONNECTIVITY

Voice control and streaming from the likes of Amazon and Google are exciting new technologies, but knowing which one is right for you and which will stand the test of time can be a daunting decision. This is a key reason why all Ruarks products incorporate Bluetooth and additional inputs, so new technology devices can easily be connected and enjoyed with our products class leading sound and when technology changes (which it is bound to) then it is very easy for you to upgrade as required

Features:

VIVID CLARITY

Programme, time and alarm status are shown with vivid clarity on R2’s Organic LED (OLED) display. The display retains its high contrast at any viewing angle and the display intensity can be adjusted to suit your requirements, when active and also in standby.

HIGH QUALITY BLUETOOTH

R2 has high performance aptX Bluetooth built in so you can directly stream from compatible devices to R2 with CD quality sound. An increasing number of Smartphone’s and other devices have aptX technology built in, but with or without, sound quality over Bluetooth with R2 is remarkable.

GREAT CONNECTIVITY

Alongside wireless connectivity, R2 also has great direct connectivity featuring two switchable line inputs, a headphone output and a multi-purpose USB socket so you can conveniently charge your smartphone or playback music loaded onto a memory stick/portable hard drive in a variety of audio codec’s including WAV, WMA, AAC, FLAC and MP3.

BEDROOM COMPANION

Any bedroom looks and sounds better with R2 and with comprehensive dual alarms you’ll be roused from your slumbers with beautiful sound exactly when you want from your desired radio station or Spotify playlist source. R2 also features adjustable sleep and snooze timers so you can doze off and snooze in a similar fashion.

ELEGANT CONTROL SOLUTION

Products covered in buttons look confusing and lack sophistication so the trademark RotoDial controller sited atop R2 provides a refreshingly elegant solution. Our RotoDial controller also ensures whichever Ruark model you own you will intuitively know how to operate each one due to their similarity of control and operation.

WIRELESS MUSIC ACCESS

R2 allows you to wirelessly access music stored on computers and NAS drives connected to your home network. This makes R2 ideal if you like to download music or record and store your CDs on one central device. It supports a variety of popular audio codec’s including WAV, WMA, AAC, FLAC and MP3. Please note that audio streaming over a network requires a NAS drive or PC/Mac running DLNA certified software with sharing enabled.

SELECT MATERIALS

R2 is carefully crafted from select materials which we know from our experience designing High-Fidelity loudspeakers, provide the best sound quality. The combination of natural and man-made materials also have the added benefit of making our products feel as good to touch as they are to see and hear.

FULL REMOTE CONTROL

Included with R2 is a compact remote, but for full wireless control Ruark will soon have an Apple and Android App available called Ruark LINK which you will be able to download from the iOS and Android stores. With R2 connected to your wireless network and LINK you will have complete control of R2’s settings and will also be able to see what’s playing on the screen of your smart device, all from the comfort of your chair or anywhere within range of your wireless network.

MULTI-ROOM READY

Alone R2 is a superb music system, but with two or more you can create a multi-room system and play music in-sync all over your home. Unlike other multi-room systems, grouping can be performed directly on R2 with the display providing clear feedback or alternatively you can set-up and control with the soon to be released Ruark LINK app. R2 will also wirelessly link and work together with the new MRx.
