More luxurious looking and better sounding than ever, the Ruark R5 Signature is the cherry on the cake for this award-winning music system.

An award-winner made better
Winner of countless awards, the original Ruark R5 is hard to beat. Yet, with the R5 Signature model, Ruark have done just that. Inside there’s STEREO+ for enhanced sound quality. On the outside, a new piano lacquer finish with rose gold detailing marks this out as a truly premium quality speaker system.

STEREO+ enhanced sound
With revised routing of key signal paths, the R5 Signature sounds purer and cleaner. High purity oxygen-free speaker cable provides the speakers with the purest signal possible, enhancing the detail and harmonics for a more natural and spacious sound.

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.

Premium Signature finish
With its hand polished, piano lacquer finish, the R5 Signature oozes class. Matched with rose gold detailing, the new finish sparkles with sophistication.

The stylish system that still connects to all
Just like the standard R5, the Signature model packs it all in. Streaming via Spotify Connect (with Premium account), Amazon Music, Deezer and Tidal are all on hand. Wi-fi and Ethernet connections also stream 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. There’s also a USB interface for a direct connection. With digital and analogue inputs, it’s 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 Signature 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 Signature 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 Signature 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 Signature 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 Signature features a digital optical input. Link it up and 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.

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.

Get a compact music system that stands out from the crowd, with the Ruark R5 Signature.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ultimate quality finish Very pleased with quality of build and the sound is superb at all voume levels.I only need it for cds and dab radio but nice to know it can do internet radio,wireless satalite speakers,bluetooth etc as well. For lovely sound and a beautiful piece os "art" to gaze upon its hard to beat . ps bluetooth headphones cannot be used with the r5, cable only ouput (found out after buying £250 set of bower wilkins headphones) it did say in small print in instruction booklet but would have been nice if this was flaged up on richer web page.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent sound quality, design and build quality I have only had the system for a week, but very impressed with sound quality. The Ruark R5 certainly lives up to expectations and online reviews, really pleased so far.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound I read about Ruark on line was really impressed by the reviews. I went to Richer Sounds, in Prestwich, for a demo and was really impressed with the sound and the available features. Since receiving my Ruark R5 Signature I am even more impressed. It sounds great, both the cd and the radio and looks really good. I have had a B&O system and a Bose system and I think it sounds as good and without all the wires running round the house. A great system at a very good price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb Quality The R5 Signature does not disappoint! The quality of the system is quite superb in all aspects. The finish is absolutely stunning. It oozes quality. Sound wise, it is extremely clear and well-balanced. No need to alter anything. The excellent sound quality is maintained across all sources. As a turntable user I am particularly impressed with the quality of the phono input. The headphone output is also extremely good. It is an incredibly impressive unit and well worth the higher price compared to the standard R5. You won't be disappointed!
