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 product It warms my heart when I have the absolute pleasure to buy and use a well made UK product. The R2 Mk3 is not cheap and it took a little bit of time to 'sum up' if this was a sensible option however, I think we have invested in a radio / music system that will fill our kitchen with news and music for years and years to come. It arrived on time and well packaged. It was easy to set up. Sound is excellent. It is easy to set up the presets and link into Spotify. We have not really experimented with the Music Player function but everything else is spot on. Well done team Ruark.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fine quality product Without doubt, the product oozes quality and design. Set up is easy and establishing a stable WiFi connection is very straight foreword. Sound quality is very good though I felt there could be a little more clarity on speech programs. Music is excellent and room filling. Although the multi control is self explanatory, I did find station access somewhat tedious in that there are no preset buttons as such and every thing is accessed via menus. With use, this does become more intuitive. The 'Favourites' feature is useful and once an account is set up with the service provider, podcasts and programs can be saved and accessed easily. I would like to see the implementation of a Bluetooth transmit feature so that the system could be used with Bluetooth headphones. I would also like to see line out sockets on the back panel. Inputs are well catered for and include a usb socket, allowing external media to be connected. Nevertheless, I am happy with my decision to purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Trust in reviews Ok I will keep it short. I have been growing up in a family of musicians and listened to a variety of music. Music has always been a part of my life. Playing my own instruments and listening to other musicians. The sound is always important for me,live or studio. My hifi equipments were always a pleasure to listen to. Due to travelling and living in different countries I didn't had the space and time for my big hobby, music. Now 25 years later I moved inn with my girlfriend in a small apartment in Italy. She loves music and had this awful radio cd player that was hurting my ears. Luckily it broke down but the next day when I came home there was already another and even worse than the first one. So I started to do some research on the Internet and was looking for a dab+ radio. Something that sounds good and blends in well in our small kitchen living. I spended weeks surfing on the web comparing different brands,reading all kinds of reviews. Back in my time I went to a hifi shop and asked if they could set up a specific equipment, cd-player, amp and speakers and brought some cd's to listen to an afternoon. Now I read reviews and have to trust in them. Then I think by myself, who wrote them? How important is the sound for them? Are they easily satisfied? I wanted something small with a big sound. And I thought I was wanting the impossible. I ended up with Ruark and I only new them of their speakers. So that was for me the positive side already. And the size of the Ruark r2 mk3 was perfect for me. I sabotaged the old cd-player of my girlfriend and ordered the Ruark. I was excited and worried at the same time. What if...the sound doesn't caress my eardrums like I want? Eventually after receiving , connecting and installing my new Ruark I was flabbergasted. The high,mid and low are perfectly tuned. It doesn't matter in low or high volume. I don't switch of the radio anymore because it's starting to get irritating. All different kinds of music genre sound like they should sound. It's a pleasure to listen to! You can see and hear that it is designed and build by people that loves music. Thank you and well done Ruark!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product, well built. We are happy with the product but to promote from good to great a means of connecting wireless ear phones and an option for an oak finish would be required.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Reasonable sound I have had the radio a few weeks, dab reception not as good as the Pure radio it replaced, Internet radio works well, sound could be a lot better for the price, not enough treble for music, it looks nice though

Rated 4 out of 5 by from GOOD SOUND AND DESIGN The R2 Mk3 has a very nice design and is built in high quality. It produces an excellent sound for its compact size. The DAB connectivity is quite stable and with the internet radio it provides unlimited variety of possibilities.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Music System built in Spotify Sounds fab The R2 is a very personal purchase for two reasons 1. I had the heartbreaking and sudden death of my beloved dad in March 2019 and he was a music lover but most importantly he liked excellent sound and nice looking kit so I grew up with good HIFI equipment which over the years included Ruark speakers. 2. Its been bought as my 34th Birthday present in memory of my dad and our shared love of music. Im so glad when I was researching for a beautiful and excellent sounding music system that this popped up I love that it has the Spotify music streaming service built in and with my Spotify Premium account you can select R2 as your playback device and then control the music using R2’s Roto Dial. This was a huge selling point to myself along with the beautiful white edition the design is gorgeous and subtle and it fits into my kitchen wonderfully. I do have an ICT degree but this was not required as it was so easy to set up. I also went to test the system at my local branch Music Matters in Royal Leamington Spa and i go complimented on my music choices as I played different genres to test the sound quality it was an instant hit as a young woman approaching my mid 30s its ticked all my criteria in a neat music system and Ive fallen in love with music all over again.
