Everything you need in one stylish and beautifully built cabinet

 

With DAB/FM and Internet Radio tuners built in, the new R2 is capable of receiving radio stations globally and with DAB+ also included.

Already equipped with DAB+ this ensures that the new R2 is ready for additional stations in the UK and Ireland, which are planned for 2016.

 

Crystal clear OLED display Programme and set-up information are displayed with crystal clear clarity on the latest technology OLED (organic light emitting diode) display. The really good thing about this new display is that it retains its vivid clarity at any viewing angle and the display brightness can be adjusted to suit your requirements, both in active and standby modes.

 

Bluetooth, aptX

The new R2 features aptX® audio technology that partners with Bluetooth® so you can stream directly from compatible devices to R2 with audio quality virtually indistinguishable from a wired connection. An increasing number of devices are now available with aptX®, but with or without, sound quality over Bluetooth with R2 is impressive.

 

High quality phono sockets

On the rear panel you’ll find a pair of high quality phono sockets for the second switchable line input. These sockets are ideal for connection to the audio/headphone output of most flat panel TVs and played through the new R2 you’ll notice a radical improvement in sound quality, making films and viewing all the more enjoyable.

 

Multi-use USB socket

Also on the rear panel is a multi-use USB socket. At its simplest, it’s a charging port so you can conveniently charge your smartphone, but moreover it’s also a playback port which allows you to connect a USB memory stick or portable hard drive loaded with your favourite music. customisable twin alarms

 

The new R2 will make any bedroom look and sound better and with customisable twin alarms you’ll be woken from your slumbers with quality sound exactly how and when you want. Also included is an adjustable snooze and sleep timer so you can doze in a similar fashion.

 

Spotify Connect ready

 The new R2 is Spotify Connect ready and with a Spotify Premium account you can select R2 as your playback device and then pause or skip tunes using the controls on R2. Even if R2 is turned off, when next turned on, simply by pressing the play button your music will resume from where it last finished and this will happen even if your phone/tablet or computer is switched off.

With access to over 20 million songs, with a Spotify Premium account, you’ll be discovering uninterrupted new music and enjoying old favourites, everyday.

 

Headphone output and line input

On the front panel a headphone output is provided along with a switchable line input allowing easy connection of auxiliary audio devices. A useful function of the headphone output is that the volume is ‘remembered’ independently from the main speaker volume, so when headphones are unplugged the volume reverts to the last used level.

 

Intuitive RotoDial control system

 In our opinion, products covered in buttons look ugly and our trademark RotoDial control system provides a sophisticated and elegant solution. For the new R2 Ruark have evolved their RotoDial concept further so it looks and feels even better and with fewer buttons is even more intuitive to operate. enjoy your entire music collection streamed wirelessly The new R2 allows you to enjoy your entire music collection

Our third generation R2 embodies Ruark design principles in a timeless compact music system, which looks and sounds sublime. Whilst the latest R2 appears similar to its forerunners, through painstaking design, it has evolved so virtually everything about it is new. Notably it incorporates streaming technology which allows you to access your own music and discover new music in a variety of convenient ways. Without doubt R2 Mk3 is a technological tour-de-force, but what makes R2 really special is its sound! Modern audio technology is amazing but this technology is pointless if it is supported by tinny or unnatural sound. Sound quality is in the Ruark DNA and R2 Mk3 is a product which we are confident will bring renewed enjoyment to your everyday listening. Hence the tagline - ‘made for music’.
