”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 4 out of 5 by from Understated Elegance Purchased the limited edition R5 and delighted with the sound,finish and build quality. I l I really only listen to cd's and internet radio and disappointed that after 20 cd's has not able to display the artist or track title whereas my old cd player different brand does.Similary the internet radio stations only shows the station name not the artist or track title which I find disappointing on what is otherwise an exceptionally well designed and finished piece of audio

Rated 5 out of 5 by from fantastic I bought the Ruark r5se a few weeks ago. very impressed with the packaging. Straight from the box it looked great and worked properly the sound is great, and the finish is fantastic. its also very easy to navigate all the options. one small problem is that two of my cds would not play. i bought new replacements and one of those would not play.All four discs would play in the car cd unit. i discussed this with the retailer and agreed to monitor the situation. he told me not to worry because Ruark have a three year warranty plan and give excellent after sales care. so i will see how it goes

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great sound, good looking and versatile. Bought this a few weeks ago and still getting use to it and all of its functions. Making good use of the internet radio and Bluetooth connection. Also connected it to the TV which has improved the sound when viewing, planing on adding a turntable in the near future to play some old vinyl. The remote is a great idea, but finding myself having to get up close to the unit to operate it as the display is so small and difficult to read, hopefully I will get use to this once I know where all the options and menus are.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features! I bought the R5 Signature a few weeks ago. The features are superb and the sound quality extraordinary. It has taken me some time to appreciate the depth of its' features and I still have some way to go to exploit its full potential. The guide which came with the R5 is very good - written in plain English. The Signature also has an elegant appearance with a beautiful shine on the surface. A minor warning, It is quite heavy and I would not describe the R5 Signature as easily portable. In fact, Ruark does not claim in its' product guidance that it is portable and I did not intend to move it around rooms in my home.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! Walnut R5 - a pleasure for eyes and ears. I love it. Missing only one SW-feature: I don’t use deezer, tidal, optical, phono or FM Radio. Please integrate a way to hide sources with the control knob/remote. I have to rotate too much ;) Thanks, great product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ruark R5 Small, powerful, excellent sound quality at all levels. Expensive but exudes quality with connected devices both Bluetooth and Phono vinyl player. Really happy

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant sound! Purchased about a month ago and have not stopped using it! Love that I can use my phone and still play music! Such crisp sound, unbelievable bass! You can hear every bit in the music!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use great sounding flexible audio I got this a few weeks ago for my birthday to replace an ageing unit. I was so happy with it I purchased the MRx also just days after to extend the sound throughout the house. I am also trying to source an r7 for Christmas I am so blown away with the sound quality and over all look.
