”For those who want an uncompromised stack of functionality, convenience, a unit that will fit with your interior decor, and for decent sound, the Ruark R5 delivers in spades.” ’Trusted Reviews’ – Recommended

The stylish system that connects to all

No longer do you need a bulky system to connect it all – beneath its sleek lines, the Ruark R5 has room for plenty. Streaming via Spotify Connect (with Premium account), Amazon Music, Deezer and Tidal are all on hand. The wi-fi and Ethernet connection also streams Internet radio. If you’d prefer, there’s DAB/FM radio and a quality CD player. An HD Bluetooth connection lets you stream music from your smartphone or tablet or, if you prefer a wired connection there’s also a USB interface. With digital and analogue inputs, it’s also easy to connect a wide range of other sources, including TV and turntable.

Streaming star
Connect up to your Broadband connection via wi-fi or Ethernet and stream all the music you want. Compatible with popular services such as Spotify Connect (with Premium account), Amazon Music, Deezer and Tidal, the R5 gives you access to a near limitless range of music. If you enjoy listening to radio from around the world, Internet radio services, including catch-up services are also on hand.

CD player
Unlike many other compact systems, the R5 features a built-in CD player. This high quality player lets you play all your existing discs without the need to transfer them to a storage device. It also plays back MP3, AAC and WMA encoded music discs.

DAB and FM radio
With a choice of DAB, DAB+ and FM, the R5 is well equipped for tuning into a wide range of radio stations both here and abroad. DAB (Digital Audio Broadcasting) gives access to the widest range of stations in the UK, in crisp and clear digital sound quality. DAB+ is available across European countries and offers even higher levels of sound quality. In case your favourite stations aren't available in DAB, then this Ruark radio is also equipped with an FM tuner.

HD Bluetooth connection
Featuring the latest high resolution Bluetooth audio technology, the R5 offers a top quality local wireless connection. Bluetooth connectivity usually means a loss in sound quality but, thanks to the R5’s aptX HD output, Bluetooth wireless sound is better quality than ever. Working up to 24 bit/48kHz, the R5 offers Hi-Res audio to beat CD – cable-free. Just pair with a compatible smartphone or tablet.

Multi-room ready
Download the Ruark LINK app and you’ve not only got effortless control but also the ability to create a multi-room system. Compatible with the MRX, R2 Mk3 and R7 Mk3 models, you can use any combination of these systems around your home and control them all via the LINK app. Available for Apple iOS and Android devices, the app lets you play the same music all around your home or different music, at different levels in individual rooms.

Connect it all – including your TV and turntable
Perfect for giving your TV a boost in quality, the R5 features a digital optical input. Link it up and you’ll enjoy a boost to the sound that matches the very best sound bases. A built-in phono pre-amp means you can also wire up your (MM) turntable, plus another line level source – such as a voice-controlled device. With the USB socket, you can playback music on your smartphone while simultaneously charging it. Line level and headphone outputs are also standard.

Highest quality sound
Packed into this compact case is a top quality audio system. Ruark Audio stereo speakers are matched to a built-in, active subwoofer for a powerful, spacious sound. The 90 watt amplifier provides plenty of oomph, even in larger rooms. For an even more spatial sound, 3D sound processing pushes the sound further out into the room. Bass, treble and loudness controls let you fine-tune the system to suit.

Alarm and remote
With a built-in alarm, the R5 makes a superior quality bedside system. The easily programmed dual alarm comes with a wide range of features, including once, daily, weekday and weekend settings plus snooze and sleep timers. The stylish RotoDial remote control mirrors the unit’s controls for intuitive control.

Luxurious wood and lacquer finishes
Ruark have a long held reputation for producing some of the finest wood-finished speakers and the R5 is no exception. Using real wood veneers and soft lacquer finishes, immaculately wrapped around a curved cabinet, the R5 is as good to look at as it sounds.

Don’t compromise on the sound or features when choosing a stylish system – with the Ruark R5 you can have it all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Clarity and depth of sound Adding to. Ruark 4. The Ruaurk 5 worth every extra penny. Noticeable difference

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Audio quality. Bully is solid Bought both R5 & R1 2 weeks ago and was greatly impressed by the audio quality; especially the R5. Would have bought the R7 if not because of space constraint. Very happy with both unit. Thumbs up Ruark!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceptional product. I was blown away from the sound coming out of this little unit (Ruark R5). The build quality is also superb. It is worth every penny. I love it so much, I am considering of purchasing the Ruark R7 for my living room and the warranty is three years, you do not get that kind of warranty very often. No regret.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice and capable machine Bought as a graded item, although without any noticeable flaws as other purchasers have similarly noted. The quality control standards are obviously very high indeed. I've grown up with an awareness of Ruark, as a teenager in the 1990s their speakers were very highly regarded, albeit this is my first ever purchase from them, for no other reason than finances never really facilitated it. Now with a young family and an aversion for rooms dominated by loads of boxes, an all-in-one system seemed attractive but I didn't want a run of the mill thing. The R5 fits the bill well, and I don't think one could reasonable expect any better, overall, for the money. It has plenty of weight to the sound (even without default 'loudness' setting which is a bit OTT for my ears, but a good nod to the audio heritage the visual design emulates) and the set of features is pretty comprehensive, more than enough for my needs which are DAB/CD mostly. It's just a lovely thing to have and use. The remote, and tasty surprise choccy bar, are class touches. I like that other items from the range can be added later, which I may explore later too. Nice to see the firm moving with the times, very impressive. Delivery was also prompt and the set up video made getting started a breeze- thanks for thinking of all of that!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic all in one system! I have been thinking of upgrading my 11 year old R4i for a while....why did I wait? This R5 sounds fantastic, connectivity options are endless, its quick and easy to use. I love listening to it (the family do too!). I bought the graded product which was perfect apart from a very small tear on the fabric but Ruark are sending me a replacement cover. 5* Product and 5* service. Don't hesitate....Just buy one, you won't regret it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Masterpiece in the living room I bought this a month ago and I an really very satisfied. Cool design and very warm sound

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sounds great! Great connectivity and really easy to set up. Sound is very warm and rich with lots of detail. Bought a graded product to save some money, can't see any imperfections. Very happy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features and a fantastic look I bought the Quark 5 two weeks ago and am so happy with it. It simply looks stunning just standing there on my cupboard, so sophisticated and tasteful. I enjoy the choice of so many radio stations, especially the ones playing Mozart all day long. I exchanged my old Hifi System against the Ruark 5 and now I don't have to struggle with cables and ugly loudspeakers any more while the sound is pure bliss, excellent basses and thrilling high tones make it a pure delight to listen to the music coning out of this beautiful device! It was absolutely no effort to set up the Ruark 5, I had it done in no time. Using the Undok App makes it even easier to control it from wherever you are in your apartment. I love it!
