Ruark Audio is delighted to reveal the latest version of its R2 music system. The all new design brings one of the company’s longest-
established models right up to date, while retaining the key features that have made the R2 so popular since its launch in 2007.
The most obvious change from its predecessors is the R2 Mk4’s slimmer footprint. Such elegant new proportions allow the system to be placed almost anywhere in the home and makes it perfect for a windowsill or bookshelf location.
The appearance of R2 is simple yet stunning, and totally in-tune with what design conscious customers are seeking today. The enclosure, with precise lines and soft contours, combines with the slatted wood grille to create a timeless retro-modern feel. Along with its bonded glass display and Ruark’s trademark RotoDial controller sited atop, R2 is undoubtedly a Ruark design and the quality remains clear.
A complete music system, R2 is equipped with DAB+, FM and internet tuners with pre-sets, and directly supports major streaming
services including Spotify, Amazon Music and Deezer, and with a quality Bluetooth receiver every other streaming service available. The Bluetooth function also seamlessly integrates with the volume function on phones and tablets, so volume can be easily raised or reduced as desired. R2 also features a USB-C charge and playback port, switchable auxiliary line input and headphone output.
Remote control is available through the UNDOK app, or a compact handset available as an optional extra. The colour LCD clearly displays time, alarm and programme information including station and album artwork, and auto-adjusts to suit ambient light levels.
Like all Ruark products, the R2 incorporates carefully selected technologies to deliver wonderfully clear and effortless sound. The linear amplifier linked with the company’s proprietary NS+ drivers and adaptive equalisation provides the perfect sound balance for enjoying all music and spoken-word content, making R2 an essential way to relax and unwind in today’s seemingly manic world.
“We can’t imagine life without music, and it’s this passion that drives us to create premium products that our customers will love to use and treasure. With its elegant, slim profile, this fourth iteration of our award winning R2 music system fits easily into any room in the house, and has all the streaming capabilities and connectivity most will ever need. With its full bodied Hi-Fidelity sound, it makes speech and music thoroughly enjoyable and like that first tea or coffee in the morning, an essential element to creating a great day.” Alan O’Rourke, Managing Director, Ruark Audio
