”The more time you spend using the Ruark, the more sense it makes.” ’AV Forums’ – Recommended.

Compact in size, big on features

Compact and sleek, the Ruark R3 still has all the features you need, and more. Connect to the Internet and stream services such as Spotify Connect (with Premium account), Amazon Music, Deezer and Tidal. The wi-fi and Ethernet connection also streams Internet radio. In addition, there’s DAB/FM radio and a quality CD player. A Bluetooth connection lets you stream music from your smartphone or tablet or, if you prefer a wired connection there’s also a USB-C interface. With digital and analogue inputs, it’s easy to connect a wide range of other sources, including a TV.

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. Finally, UPnP connectivity lets you connect to a DNLA compatible music server, for personal music library playback.

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.

Wireless Bluetooth connection
High quality Bluetooth aptX connectivity gives you near CD quality sound, wirelessly. Connect your smartphone, tablet or other Bluetooth music source and effortlessly stream your stored music or streaming music services.

Connect more
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.
