Product Description

For over 30 years the folk at Ruark have worked within the UK audio industry creating high quality loudspeaker systems for music and audio enthusiasts. The third generation R2 embodies Ruark's principles in a timeless compact music system, which looks and sounds sublime and is packed with desirable features.

Overview

Whilst the latest R2 FM/DAB+ Stereo Radio may give a first impression of being similar to its earlier forerunners. However, through painstaking design, it has evolved so virtually everything about it is new including subtle changes to its looks. Notably however it incorporates technology that will allow you to play your music and broadcasts and discover new music in a variety of convenient ways. One of these is or course bluetooth. So when you get sick of the radio simply start streaming your favourite music from your smartphone or tablet. 

There are also some good input options including front and back auxilliary inputs as well as a USB input again via the back panel. You may not use the headphone jack very often, but there is one on the front. Yes, it has a remote control! But the other feature that we find many of our customers want is to have what we will call "Clock Radio" functions! The R2 has a back-lit LCD clock display and you can very quickly set the alarm to abruptly awake you or alternatively gently wake you to your favourite station. The front display also has station and function readout.

The latest R2 is undoubtedly a technological tour-de-force and one of the most desirable compact music systems available, but what makes the new R2 really special is its sound! Sound quality is Ruark's heritage and they believe that technology means little if the end result is a tinny or unnatural sound. Rest assured, this is nearly as good as it gets in the sound department and is only surpassed by its bigger brother and separate components which cost a lot more. The new R2 is a product which will bring fresh enjoyment to your everyday listening and hence the tagline - ‘made for music’.

Spotify Connect Ready: The Ruark Audio R2 is Spotify Connect ready, so if you have a Spotify Premium account you can select R2 as your player and then control playback using the controls on R2 itself. Even if the new R2 is turned off, when next turned on, simply by pressing the play button your music will start from exactly where it finished and all this happens even if your phone or tablet switched off. With access to over 20 million songs, with the Spotify app and a Premium account, you’ll be discovering new music and enjoying old favourites, everyday.

About Ruark Audio: In 2004 the Ruark family made a radical decision to diversify from making just domestic hi-fi equipment and apply their expertise to design a small range of high quality radio based products, choosing to call this development ‘Vita Audio’. That name was changed in or about 2013 to better convey the family business message. The look of all the models exudes style - retro and modern at the same time - but sonically they're equally impressive. Custom made high-fidelity drive units and electronics provide a scale and quality of sound that belies the relative compact size. 

In The News

Since launching, their models quickly became recognised as the finest available winning numerous accolades and awards. Most memorably the Sunday Telegraph (UK) described the R1 as ‘the Aston Martin of DAB radios’

"As with the R1 Mk3 and R4 Mk3, there are no real complaints with setting up and operating the R2. It's a joy, with the RotoDial providing tactile navigation through settings or for just changing the volume...Getting decent radio reception wasn't a problem at all, and the R2 Mk3 even picked up a good signal in a part of my house where others before it have struggled. The Wi-Fi range was similarly impressive – not once did I have a connection drop-out while streaming....Sound quality is exceptional from such a small unit. Sat alongside the more expensive Tivoli Audio Music System 2+, the Ruark R2 Mk3 not only matched it for premium build and surpassed it for playback options, but also blew it away sonically." Read more at www.trustedreviews.com

Our Take

The sentiment expressed by the Sunday Telegraph succinctly describes the Ruark Audio philosophy and we sincerely believe that their products are an investment which you will cherish and enjoy for years to come. A number of our staff own Ruark Audio radios and will confirm that they not only perform well but the roto dial is very easy to use. Learning time just 60 seconds!
