RUARK R1

Beautifully simple, the latest R1 is the third generation of our iconic table radio which started the Ruark Audio story and marked our transition from manufacturing Hi-Fidelity loudspeakers, to quality compact audio systems.

At first glance, the latest R1 appears remarkably similar to its predecessors, but look closely and you will see that everything about it has been refined. Our updated ‘RotoDial’ control system looks and feels slicker and combined with the latest technology OLED display, provides a control interface which is clear and intuitive to use. The enclosure retains the same attractive dimensions, but with the new soft lacquer finishes and crisp detailing of the front and rear panels, the craftsmanship and desirability of R1 Mk3 has been elevated to an even greater level.

RUARK R2 Mk3 streaming music system

Bluetooth, wifi, digital radio, aptX, spotify connect, RDS

Our third generation R2 embodies our 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 our heritage and R2 Mk3 is a product which we are confident will bring renewed enjoyment to your everyday listening. Hence our tagline - ‘made for music’.

R2 Mk3 is available through our select dealer network, who we are confident will be able to offer you the very best service. These include John Lewis, Selfridges and a range of quality audio and design stores across the UK. Find a stockist near you.

Since its introduction in 2008, R4 has become regarded as possibly the finest ‘all-in-one’ system available. With our belief in evolutionary design the new R4 IMS looks reassuringly familiar, but throughout it has been carefully re-engineered making it better than ever. With a smaller footprint, lower profile and selection of beautiful finishes the new R4 exudes style and with our latest RotoDial controller and new technology OLED display, R4 is simplicity itself to use.
