Ruark Audio R2 MK3


Streaming music System



        

Compact yet powerful, our beautifully discrete R2 is the perfect 'all in one’ music system with award winning sound. It incorporates Bluetooth, Spotify Connect and Wi-Fi technologies which allow you to stream your music wirelessly and with a Spotify Premium account you can explore a huge library of amazing music without interruption. Featuring DAB, DAB+, FM and Internet tuners, high quality aptX Bluetooth receiver, USB playback/power port, wireless music streaming and multi-room capabilities R2 Mk3 is a technological tour-de-force, but what makes R2 really special is its sound. With our experience in high-fidelity sound we’ve created a modern day music system which will bring new enjoyment to your listening experience.

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 R2’s UNDOK 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.

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 our 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 these is an Apple and Android App available called UNDOK. With R2 connected to your wireless network and UNDOK 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 wirelessly link together 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 UNDOK app. R2 will also wirelessly link with our new R7, to provide sound reinforcement where needed.
