”For those who want an uncompromised stack of functionality, convenience, a unit that will fit with your interior decor, and for decent sound, the Ruark R5 delivers in spades.” ’Trusted Reviews’ – Recommended

The stylish system that connects to all

No longer do you need a bulky system to connect it all – beneath its sleek lines, the Ruark R5 has room for plenty. Streaming via Spotify Connect (with Premium account), Amazon Music, Deezer and Tidal are all on hand. The wi-fi and Ethernet connection also streams Internet radio. If you’d prefer, there’s DAB/FM radio and a quality CD player. An HD Bluetooth connection lets you stream music from your smartphone or tablet or, if you prefer a wired connection there’s also a USB interface. With digital and analogue inputs, it’s also easy to connect a wide range of other sources, including TV and turntable.

Streaming star
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 R5 gives you access to a near limitless range of music. If you enjoy listening to radio from around the world, Internet radio services, including catch-up services are also on hand.

CD player
Unlike many other compact systems, the R5 features 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. It also plays back MP3, AAC and WMA encoded music discs.

DAB and FM radio
With a choice of DAB, DAB+ and FM, the R5 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 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.

HD Bluetooth connection
Featuring the latest high resolution Bluetooth audio technology, the R5 offers a top quality local wireless connection. Bluetooth connectivity usually means a loss in sound quality but, thanks to the R5’s aptX HD output, Bluetooth wireless sound is better quality than ever. Working up to 24 bit/48kHz, the R5 offers Hi-Res audio to beat CD – cable-free. Just pair with a compatible smartphone or tablet.

Multi-room ready
Download the Ruark LINK app and you’ve not only got effortless control but also the ability to create a multi-room system. Compatible with the MRX, R2 Mk3 and R7 Mk3 models, you can use any combination of these systems around your home and control them all via the LINK app. Available for Apple iOS and Android devices, the app lets you play the same music all around your home or different music, at different levels in individual rooms.

Connect it all – including your TV and turntable
Perfect for giving your TV a boost in quality, the R5 features a digital optical input. Link it up and you’ll enjoy a boost to the sound that matches the very best sound bases. A built-in phono pre-amp means you can also wire up your (MM) turntable, plus another line level source – such as a voice-controlled device. With the USB socket, you can playback music on your smartphone while simultaneously charging it. Line level and headphone outputs are also standard.

Highest quality sound
Packed into this compact case is a top quality audio system. Ruark Audio stereo speakers are matched to a built-in, active subwoofer for a powerful, spacious sound. The 90 watt amplifier provides plenty of oomph, even in larger rooms. For an even more spatial sound, 3D sound processing pushes the sound further out into the room. Bass, treble and loudness controls let you fine-tune the system to suit.

Alarm and remote
With a built-in alarm, the R5 makes a superior quality 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. The stylish RotoDial remote control mirrors the unit’s controls for intuitive control.

Luxurious wood and lacquer finishes
Ruark have a long held reputation for producing some of the finest wood-finished speakers and the R5 is no exception. Using real wood veneers and soft lacquer finishes, immaculately wrapped around a curved cabinet, the R5 is as good to look at as it sounds.

Don’t compromise on the sound or features when choosing a stylish system – with the Ruark R5 you can have it all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Masterpiece in the living room I bought this a month ago and I an really very satisfied. Cool design and very warm sound

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features and a fantastic look I bought the Quark 5 two weeks ago and am so happy with it. It simply looks stunning just standing there on my cupboard, so sophisticated and tasteful. I enjoy the choice of so many radio stations, especially the ones playing Mozart all day long. I exchanged my old Hifi System against the Ruark 5 and now I don't have to struggle with cables and ugly loudspeakers any more while the sound is pure bliss, excellent basses and thrilling high tones make it a pure delight to listen to the music coning out of this beautiful device! It was absolutely no effort to set up the Ruark 5, I had it done in no time. Using the Undok App makes it even easier to control it from wherever you are in your apartment. I love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Hi Fi, lots of useful features! We bough the R5 a couple of months ago mainly so we can connect to Spotify and listen to music. The more we got to know the functionality the more impressed with the R5 we are! We love the fact we can access radio stations and pod casts from all over the world and the quality of sound for music and radio is awesome!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from exactly what I was looking for I purchased the R5 on recommendation from a friend who owns an R3 and was able to listen to the sound quality first hand. The R5 seems to have more clarity and adjustability which justifies the higher price. We bought this system to reboot our dormant CD collection which is great and the other connectivity is useful too. The only criticism is the interface with deezer, spotify, etc. when using them directly on the unit is not very intuitive and quite clunky to use. Perhaps the ability to connect a keyboard or predictive text could help. Otherwise, exactly what we were looking for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Right decision Our Bang & Olufson music system was recently – after more than 20 years – no longer operational, so the question arose as to what we should buy. Since we have an extensive CD collection, a CD player was a must, and we also wanted to be able to use the internet radio. This is perfectly possible with our brand new Ruarkaudio. After the Viennese dealer delivered the device to us and familiarized us with the basic settings, we now regularly use our new system. The music playback is high-class and the possibility of receiving radio stations worldwide is a wonderful enrichment for our information needs. So we are completely satisfied with our purchase and can highly recommend the R5 High Fidelity Music System. M. Dransfeld Vienna / Austria

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A natural succesor A natural successor to my Arcam solo; all the features that I was looking for.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good but ... The quality of the sound, the functionalities and the design are excellent. Nevertheless, we are experiencing some random shut down from time to time. When we decided to replace the first one after less than 10 days, it took about 3 months to get it replaced. The problem still persists.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Rewarding musical box! The R5 options to play music surely fulfills even the more demanding passionate. A digital music station extremely simple to use, with a lot of connections available and a real pleasure for the eye and the ears. And even the sense of touch finds its accomplishment with the unusual remote control. I will love to give 5 stars when the support, especially the process for firmware updates, will be verified.
