Perfect for giving your TV or games console a boost in quality, the R3 features a digital optical input. Link it up and you’ll enjoy a boost to the sound that easily beats most TV’s built-in speakers. RCA phono inputs are ideal for connecting analogue sources – such as a turntable with built-in phonostage, or even a cassette deck (RCA phono outputs are also standard). For a direct connection with your HiRes player, smartphone or computer, there’s also a USB-C connection for playback and charge.

Top quality sound
It might be small, but that doesn’t stop the R3 from offering top quality sound. The Class A/B amplifier delivers 30 watts for dynamic music delivery. Combined with the Ruark neodymium NS+ speakers, you also get the perfect balance between detail and refinement, making this a very natural-sounding system.

Alarm and remote
With its OLED display, large format clock and built-in alarm, the R3 makes a premium 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. An infrared remote control is also supplied.

Luxurious wood and lacquer finishes
Ruark have a long held reputation for producing some of the finest wood-finished speakers and the R3 is no exception. Using real wood veneers and soft lacquer finishes, immaculately wrapped around a curved cabinet, the R3 is as good to look at as it sounds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound, and it does everything I need of it. I bought this after receiving some CD's for Christmas as I had nothing to play them on. The sound is great for both CD and radio listening, and the remote makes operations even easier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb all-round. I bought the R3 based on pictures of it and a recommendation from a friend who checked the technical specification [with Covid restrictions, auditioning the unit wasn’t an option]. The R3 is straightforward to set up and the small remote control is brilliant, having only the buttons you need in daily use. I particularly like the Preset buttons for my 3 favourite radio stations, which along with the slot-loading CD player account for most of my listening. The R3 is more like a piece of well crafted furniture than a traditional hifi unit and it's such a pleasure just looking at it while I listen to the excellent sound it delivers. I wanted something which was simple to operate, good to look at and which delivered great sound and build quality. The R3 delivers all of those requirements in abundance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound, just the right thing for our kitchen Our old kitchen radio was getting old and creaky, and the sound had never been great. This radio is fantastic, it sounds great and has tons of features like Spotify, Internet Radio, DAB and old-fashioned CD. The UNDOK app on my iPhone works well - you need to be a little bit patient since the controls take a moment to recognise the device.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Ruark Audio R3 - suits my needs just fine. Good looking device, fits well in our kitchen, good sound, certainly on radio & cd, lovely clear display, as a technophobe I can’t give comment on bass & treble but is perfect for my needs. I love it.
