Superb, stereo sound

Who better than speaker experts, Ruark, to bring you top quality, stereo sound. With Ruark’s own stereo speakers, you hear the music exactly as it was intended. The damped, reflex cabinet gives low distortion and a rich, powerful sound. Audio grade components are used throughout, with the Class A-B amplifier providing an effortless 20 watts – enough to fill larger rooms with ease.

DAB and FM radio
With a choice of DAB, DAB+ and FM, the R2 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 countries 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.

Wireless Bluetooth connection
High quality Bluetooth aptX connectivity gives you near CD quality sound, wirelessly. Connect up your smartphone, tablet or other Bluetooth music source and you can effortless stream your stored music or streaming music services such as Spotify (Premium account required for full features) and Tidal.

Multi-room ready
For quality sound all around your home it’s easy to link two or more R2s together and play the same music simultaneously. You can link the units directly, with the display proving clear status. Alternatively, there’s the UNDOK app for smartphone control.

Twin AUX in and USB charge
Connect up two other sources, such as an MP3 player, iPod or even your TV by using the AUX 3.5mm inputs. With the USB socket you can playback music on your smartphone while simultaneously charging it. A headphone socket is also standard.

Luxurious wood and lacquer finishes
Ruark have a long held reputation for producing some of the finest wood-finished speakers and the R2 MK3 is no exception. Using real wood veneers and soft lacquer finishes, immaculately wrapped around a curved cabinet, the R2 MK3 is as good to look at as it sounds.

Compact and stylish but still serious about sound, the Ruark R2 MK3 hits the right note every time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Music Streaming Unit Sound quality is superb - the unit itself looks like a work of art. It's probably wasted in my bedroom and should take centre stage in the living room ! The only slight niggle is the use of the settings - if there was an App for that this would be flawless - but don't let that put you off this very fine piece of audio kit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Bough this a few weeks ago and what an amazing radio it has turned out to be. Easy to set up and the sound is brilliant. I could not recommend this radio highly enough.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great sound I have had the R2 mk3 for around a month and i like the features it comes with, the sound is excellent although it could be a little brighter. Quality of build is excellent we went for a white unit which looks great in our kitchen. Couple of negatives in that the iPhone app has bugs and occasionally detatches itself from linking to the R2 and also the R5 we have. Also i have noticed that the R2 drops the WiFi on occasions and does not reconnect unless you perform a power reset. Overall a great product of good value but software and app needs refining to give it 5 stars.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Ideal bedside unit I already had a high-end music system in my lounge and wanted something with decent sound quality to replace an existing clock/radio in the bedroom. I have built up a large library of music and was delighted that the R2 could access my music server. I was disappointed, however, that it cannot play a lot of my music tracks which are Hi-Res downloads from Qobus, nor can it access Qobus - only Spotify which is of absolutely no interest to me!! I love the R2, it looks good, sounds good, if not exactly Hi-Fi, and is very easy to use

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A neat set of features in a sleek box As a CD and vinyl enthusiast who last listened to radio before the days of the internet, I have had much enjoyment exploring on the R2 the many stations now available on DAB and Internet radio. The fully rounded 3D sound with excellent bass and treble response are unbeatable for the price, I would say, and enhance the listening experience amazingly for such a small box. The Spotify link defeated me, I'm afraid, and I settled for playing Spotify from my phone through the Bluetooth menu selection instead, something that only occurred to me after nearly two hours of fruitless attempts to link with the Spotify menu! Apart from Spotify's habit of freezing at regular intervals and suddenly dropping the link to the R2 from time to time, all now seems well, although I was not able to link either my laptop or my tablet to the R2 at all. I have no idea why. Playing USB sticks was simple and enjoyable, although I wondered if the USB socket could have been at the front, not the rear of the R2. As it is, you risk poking your eye out on the radio antenna when inserting the stick! Only one other slight criticism is the lack of a co-axial aerial socket on the rear of the R2. As I have an FM aerial on the roof of the house, it would have been useful to use it once again, but perhaps I am out of date. In short though, a wonderful little machine, and I shall certainly be looking to buy further Ruark equipment in due course.
