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

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bought for DAB radio alone. Bought for the DAB radio alone. I am very pleased with the sound quality playing speech or music. It is in my opinion a much moore mature sound than the Bose unit I owned in the past. I did need some help from Ruark with setting the station presets in the first few days of ownership. Overall I'm impressed with the sound and build quality. It's one of those items you don't forget to take with you when you move home.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great looks, features and sound I was looking for a DAB radio that I could just listen to by the push of a button but also wanted to be able to play my music collection located on my PC and mobile devices. There were a few products that met these requirements and after reading various reviews of each it was the Ruark Audio R2 Mk3 that was most highly praised and on this basis it was this product that I purchased from Richer Sounds and I am so glad I did. It is a well built modern design with superb sound quality and is easy to use either by the top mounted rotary control or UNDOK app and the on-board telescopic aerial picks up more than enough DAB/FM radio stations. Thrilled with my purchase and highly recommend the Ruark Audio R2 Mk3.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from ultimate soundmachine What a gem the ruark r2 is. I had two other internet-radios before, but this one is really grown up. The rotodial makes sure that the whole system is easy to use even without the app or the remote control. The display is really crisp and clear. It does not show any cover-art or logo but that is an advantage in my opinion, because every station or album is shown in the same way. The Internetradio works a lot better then the ones I had before. No system shutdowns until now, even at low bandwith stations the buffering works quite good. The most important thing is the sound. I was sceptical if a system without a subwoofer could sound full and smooth enough, but it does! Well, this is not a vulgar boombox, but the bass is there and the soundstage with loudness and 3D Sound on is incredible. For my music taste it is perfect. There are a lot of input choices for cd & record player. Bluetooth aptx is nice with almost no delay when you link it with your pc. Add the classic look and compact design: this is the ultimate soundmachine for the 21 century.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from great sound and looks the R2 replaced a system with a name that evokes the ocean (...;-)) ... and it sounds way better ... more definition and response. A nice retro feel adds to the package ... couple of things though, the on/off button is laughably flimsy feeling, and the menu/button combo to set the presets resulted in quite a bit of pulled hair. All in all, a quality product. btw, i'd wanted the R1 which was out of stalk, so the dealer offered the R2 for the same price. While it's bigger than i'd wanted, i've found a home for it and will be ordering the R1 when it's available!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound, compact size. I bought this to replace a small bluetooth speaker and old DAB radio, so glad I did. The Spotify Connect feature is especially useful, and the system is easy to use. Looks great, very sleek and stylish, and most importantly of course, it sounds great. Really love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Marvellous little box I can be described as both an Audiophile and Technophobe, on the first the R2 sounds really well for a small box and I recommend it. On the second I was really pleased how easy it was to set up and join it to my internet and begin streaming. The internet radio is a bonus and love listening to the Swiss stations as we are unable to travel there in the pandemic.
