"It’s a gorgeous looking system that will fit into any home,
and that lush, punchy sound is just so much fun to listen to.
We want one."

October 2015. 5-star review.
Style & Performance
Whilst the latest Ruark Audio R2 appears similar to its forerunners, through painstaking design, it has evolved so virtually everything about it is new. Notably it incorporates streaming technology which allows you to access your own music and discover new music in a variety of convenient ways. Without doubt the Ruark Audio R2 Mk3 is a technological tour-de-force, but what makes the R2 really special is its sound! Modern audio technology can be amazing but this technology is pointless if it is supported by tinny or unnatural sound. Sound quality is our heritage and the R2 Mk3 is a product which Ruark are confident will bring renewed enjoyment to your listening experience
Spotify & Wireless Audio
The R2 Mk3 is Spotify Connect ready and with a Spotify Premium account you can select the Ruark R2 Mk3 as your playback device and then pause or skip tunes using the controls on the R2. Even if the R2 is turned off, when next turned on, simply by pressing the play button your music will resume from where it last finished and this will happen even if your phone/tablet or computer is switched off. With access to over 20 million songs, with a Spotify Premium account, you’ll be discovering new music and enjoying old favourites, everyday.
WiFi & Wireless Multiroom
On its own R2 makes a superb music system but with our new software update, with two or more R2 Mk3s you can synchronise and spread music all over your home, so you can enjoy 'beautiful music everywhere'. Unlike many other multi-room systems, set-up and control can be performed directly on each R2 with the OLED display providing clear feedback about system status as well as artist, track and album information during playback. Also with our RotoDial controller sited atop R2, volume can be quickly adjusted and tracks skipped or repeated so you can control your music from each R2 as you like it. The new R2 allows you to enjoy your entire music collection streamed wirelessly from storage devices or PCs connected to your home network. It supports a variety of audio codec’s including WMA, AAC, FLAC, MP3, MP2 and Real Audio. Audio streaming requires a DLNA server or PC/Mac running DLNA certified software.
High End Design
The Ruark Audio R2's enclosure is handcrafted from natural materials which we know from designing loudspeakers, gives the best sound quality. Clad in a choice of luxurious walnut veneer or soft white and soft black lacquers, this material also has the added benefit that it is wonderful to touch and see.
Dual Alarm Clock Function
The R2 Mk3 will make any bedroom look and sound better and with customisable twin alarms you’ll be woken from your slumbers with quality sound exactly how and when you want. Also included is adjustable snooze and sleep timers so you can doze in a similar fashion.
Future Ready With DAB+ & Internet Radio
With DAB/FM and Internet Radio tuners built in, the new R2 is capable of receiving radio stations globally and with DAB+ also included, the new R2 can be used in countries such as Australia and Germany where this updated format is now being used. DAB+ also ensures that the new R2 is ready for additional stations in the UK, which are planned for 2016.
