”Beautiful in design and performance, this all-in-one system is a delight.” ‘What Hi-Fi? magazine’. 5-star review.

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 Very happy with my R2 My first 'proper' hifi peakers were Ruark Sworsdman, which I bought in about 1988, and used for 20 years. They looked lovely, were really well made and had a great 'balance' to the sound that wasn't flashy, but treated the music properly. The same is true of the R2. After six weeks of ownership it's been faultless in operation and the sound is very good for something of this price. It's handling everything from spoken word to baroque chamber music to Primal Scream with balance, precision and detail. There's depth and punch to baselines when you need it ('Loaded' properly lopes along, just as it should) but top end is never 'splashy' and vocals are natural-sounding, from Tom Waits to Cecilia Bartoli. Separation of small-scale instrumental groups is very clear - all the parts in a Bach quartet are distinct. Set up was straightforward, although I'm using this as a stand-alone device, so can't comment on multi-room connections (yet - how to fund an R5 is in planning). Downsides? Nothing much, and one of those is nothing to do with the R2. The remote sometimes needs a couple of presses to work and is very 'directional'. The advice that signal strength is important for the app to work properly is spot on. Old house, thick walls and the R2 a fair way from the router means it's hit and miss.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful form, perfect fit and ample functions. I bought this unit six weeks ago in order to expand my listening choice via DAB+ and Internet Radio. I also needed the unit to blend with existing furniture, to look understated and yet provide a creditable audio performance.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great little system, but ... I bought this about five years ago for the kitchen. A lot of the time it plays from my main hi-fi via the line 2 input. It's been abso marvellous. I've only recently started using the streaming facilities. Bluetooth from an iPhone works perfectly. Spotify Connect is a bit flakey (sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't). I'm told it's a network problem rather than any fault in the R2, which could well be the case. However, the real problem came two days ago when I bought an MRx for another room, principally to act as a slave to the R2. Through trial and error I have discovered that the R2 does not support the multi-room capability for the two inputs I use most - Bluetooth and Line in. Nowhere on Ruark's website is this stated in any way. So be warned if you want to use the multi-room facility on the R2 with any source other than Spotify, Local Music, Music Player, DAB or FM. If it weren't for this it would merit five stars.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Expected better. I was really disappointed in my purchase of the Ruark, the quality was ok at lower levels of volume but at higher levels the quality seriously diminishes. Not what i was expecting from such a supposed high end company.
