The award-winning Ruark R2 is a sophisticated DAB radio with DAB, FM and Internet tuners as well as Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and Spotify connectivity which allow you to wirelessly stream your music. Drawing on Ruark Audio’s heritage engineering high-fidelity speakers, the R2 has been developed as an all encompassing compact music system which will allow you to enjoy music and radio with exceptional audio quality.
Bridging the gap between retro and modern, the Ruark R2 is a masterfully handcrafted accomplishment. The elegant steel front panel is sleek and uncluttered, with a large OLED screen that’s easy to read from all angles. Beautifully encased in a specially selected wood casing that looks simply stunning. Not only does it look great, but the acoustic properties of wood help to make the R2 sound that much richer than it would otherwise. The signature RotoDial control panel on the top of the R2 provides a satisfyingly intuitive and tactile method of navigating the menu and adjusting volume.
When it comes to sound quality, nobody does it better than Ruark. Putting decades of audio experience to good use, the R2 provides best-in-class sound across all playback methods. What’s more, with two speakers built in, it offers full stereo sound, too. While the speakers may be close together, Ruark have carefully engineered them so that they provide pitch-perfect separation at all times. There’s a pleasing weight behind the R2’s sound profile, and if you need to really fill a room, it includes a unique 3D sound mode to do the job nicely.
As with all Ruark DAB radios, the R2 uses a trademark control method known as RotoDial. Simple and intuitive, you’ll never be lost when it comes to navigating through menus and finding stations. A single knob both controls the volume and lets you select various options, while the buttons around it are clearly labelled and have an oh-so-satisfying tactile feel about them. That all adds up to a control panel that anyone can use without any trouble. What’s more, since the RotoDial controller sits on the top of the unit, the front panel is left clear and uncluttered.
A huge range of connectivity options
With such incredible sound quality, you’ll naturally want to get the most out of your R2. Luckily, there’s a huge range of different ways to listen with this model. As well as the DAB radio function, the R2 can also hook up to your WiFi to open up the world of internet radio. With over 30,000 stations broadcasting from across the globe, there’s so much to discover. If you’d rather keep control of your own playlist, then the Spotify Connect feature lets you instantly stream your favourite tracks with just the touch of a button. Bluetooth connectivity also comes included, and when connected to WiFi, the R2 can even automatically detect and play tracks stored on your laptop.
Enhancing the flexibility of the Ruark R2 MK3 is the multiroom feature. This enables you to connect two or more together and play the same music source simultaneously from a home network, Spotify (Premium) and internet radio. Control of multiroom can be done via the roto-dial control or through the Ruark Link App, available free on iOS and Android.
