Ruark believes everyone deserves good design in their lives and the smart, elegant R3 system helps people enjoy life that little bit more.
R3 combines a dapper, upscale design with a versatile and playful form factor, topped off by a sublime sound that belies its compact stature. It is also hugely flexible, empowering users to do more than they thought possible with such a system.
The combination of tactile and luxurious materials exudes quality and premium craftsmanship, from the curvaceous form of the hand-crafted cabinet to the coolness of the glass display, the warmth of the woven fabric grille to their trademark RotoDial controller.
With its carefully considered proportions creating a purposeful look and the cantilevered legs subtly angling R3 upwards, this system is ready to perform.
This superbly versatile and compact one-box wonder offers comprehensive listening options for every music fan. Stream songs from your favourite music services such as Spotify Connect, TIDAL, Amazon Music and Deezer over Wi-Fi or Bluetooth aptX, access its Smart Radio functionality to tune into internet, DAB/DAB+ or FM stations, or spin a CD using the onboard player.
R3 can also be part of your TV and Smart Home set-up, with switchable analogue and digital inputs so devices such as a TV, Alexa Echo Dot or Google Home Mini can be easily connected.
Built around more than three decades of high-end audio expertise and pedigree, the compact R3 delivers a dynamic performance akin to larger system with separate speakers. The cabinet has been carefully tuned to provide the ideal housing for our NS+ loudspeaker units. Featuring a low-reflection air-flowed chassis, powerful neodymium magnet system and lightweight cone assembly, these drivers provide a full-range performance that belies their size.
Driving the system is a high-fidelity two-channel Class A-B amplifier, and with Ruark Audio’s own algorithms and the latest digital sound processing, they have been able to finely control the sound at every level to provide detail and a realistic sound stage that exceeds R3’s compact profile.
