Built-in Wi-Fi means you can easily access your favourite music streaming services like Spotify, Amazon Music, Deezer and Tidal (charges apply for subscription services). Or stream straight from Bluetooth devices with aptX HD technology for high definition listening that’s indistinguishable from a wired connection.
Easily connect a turntable, smart speaker or other audio device via its suite of inputs. An Ethernet port means you can connect to your network by cable if preferred, and an optical in port makes the R5 a high quality sound system for your TV. You can also play music files from a USB memory stick, via its USB port (which can also serve to keep your USB devices charged).
Multi-format CD player
You can enjoy your CD collection too. The slot loading multi-format player plays CDs and MP3s, AAC and WMA music discs. Adjustable EQ also lets you tune your listening to perfection.
A world of radio
With connection to Wi-Fi, the world is your oyster for radio; choose from a huge and ever-increasing list of specialist stations from around the globe. DAB provides digital quality radio from local and national stations, while DAB+ makes it future-proof for the next generation of digital radio. FM means you can still pick up any stations yet to go digital.
High fidelity sound
Utilising the kind of tech only usually found in specialist audio equipment, Ruark pride themselves on a blend of high fidelity performance and elegant design. The R5 uses a high capacity linear power supply with Class A-B amplifiers and active electronics and equalisation to precisely control the loudspeaker units. Its stereo speakers provide natural frequency response with powerful neodymium magnets and lightweight cone assembly. And its active subwoofer provides effortless extended bass for depth, warmth and power.
The R5’s multi-room capabilities make it easy to link it with other Ruark models like the MRx, R2 Mk3 and R7 Mk3 to provide synced sound throughout the home.
With a hand-crafted cabinet and Camira Lead grey grille, the R5 exudes premium style. Its high contrast OLED display can be brightness adjusted to suit its environment, and the intuitive ‘click to select’ RotoDial makes control slick, easy, and satisfying to operate. A matching RotoDial remote is supplied too, and as it works by RF communication, it doesn’t need to be aimed either.
The Ruark Link App allows for full control of your R5 from your tablet or smartphone. Free to download from the iOS and Android App stores, it lets you browse internet radio and DAB stations with ease, navigate your music stored on your network devices and stream all of your favourite playlists from streaming services.
