Ruark Audio R5

The Ruark R5 High Fidelity Music System. An all in one system offering all the connectivity, design and sound quality you could ask for from such a system.

The R5 expresses Ruark's passion for quality in build and design on top of functionality, featuring a handcrafted cabinet, the coolness of the glass and metal components and the warmth of the fabric grille, the R5 is sure to make a statement and add style to any living environment.

With Ruarks expanding the range of streaming capable devices, the R5 offers multi-room compatibility with the MRx, R2 mk3 and R7 mk3.

The R5 features newly developed Class A-B amplifiers in a 2.1 configuration with active electronics to precisely control the loudspeaker units. Designed to provide a beautifully natural frequency response thanks to a powerful neodymium magnet system coupled with a lightweight cone/coil assembly. The long throw subwoofer provides effortless extended bass for lifelike aural drama.

Thanks to the careful design in the development of the R5 to create the perfect cabinet. carefully selected materials and partitioned, damped and tuned internals provide the ideal conditions for the drive units and electronics.

Controllability is simple with the Ruark RotoDial featured on Ruark's other products. The R5 is also supplied with a 'radio-link' remote which mirrors the controls on the R5 itself. Radio communication means that you don't need to aim the remote at the R5 to operate. You can also control the R5 from the Ruark Link app for iOS and Android devices, making browsing music services and internet radio stations along with multi-room setup much simpler.

Playback, the R5 has you covered. Wi-Fi streaming, multi-format CD player, aptX HD Bluetooth, DAB/FM and internet radio tuners, USB playback/charge port, analogue and digital inputs and even a dedicated RIAA turntable input are all offered by the R5 allowing you to enjoy whichever music source grabs your mood. You can even connect your TV for improved audio.

The R5 is available in two finishes, Rich Walnut and Soft Grey.
