Stream your favourite music
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 R3 gives you access to a near limitless range of music. If you enjoy listening to radio and podcasts from around the world, Internet radio services, including catch-up services are also on hand.

CD player
For full compatibility with your treasured discs, the R3 is equipped with 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. The multi-format player is compatible with CD-R, CD-RW, MP3, WMA and AAC (320 Kbps) encoded music discs.

SmartRadio Tuner
As well as Internet radio, the R3 is equipped with a DAB/FM tuner. DAB (Digital Audio Broadcasting) gives access to the widest range of stations, in crisp and clear digital sound quality. In case your favourite stations aren't available in DAB, this Ruark radio is also equipped with an FM tuner.

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.

Get a fully equipped system, that doesn’t compromise on sound or style, with the Ruark R3.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great sound for a small multi-functional package I bought this for my wife for Christmas. The first one had problems, but the team managed to get a replacement to me in time, so I could set it up. Very pleased with the product and the service.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks And Sound Great The Ruark R3 is neat and compact, and looks really smart in our living room. More importantly, it sounds great. We bought it mainly to play CDs, and to listen to the radio, and we are now enjoying rediscovering our CD collection. Our progressive rock and folk albums sound very clear and more defined. The Ruark R3 seems likely to give us years of enjoyment.
