The Ruark R2 Mk3 is an all-in-one music system for the modern home. No CD player, no separate clutter-creating speakers, just one box full of wireless music electrickery.

Awesome connectivity ; Great sound quality ; Premium build ; Simple to operate

Remote could be nicer ; Not cheap

The Ruark Audio R2 Mk3 is an incredibly versatile all-in-one music system that sounds as good as it looks.

Ruark Audio R2 Mk3 review

 

The digital audio broadcasting giant goes streaming galore

Rich, full-bodied sound ; Spotify Connect support ; Wide range of inputs ; Great control

No Google Cast support ; Spotify Connect can be flaky

A simply great streaming speaker, the Ruark Audio R2 contains almost every type of connectivity you'd need, and is easy to control to boot.

Ruark Audio R2 Mk3 stereo system review

 

Ruark Audio's R2 stereo system is up to its third revision from the seasoned speaker maker, and it promises to be the best version yet. The R2 Mk3 packs in plenty of features ranging from Spotify Connect to internet radio via its built-in Wi-Fi and a...

Ruark Audio's R2 Mk3 looks a lot like its predecessors, but it's packed in plenty of modern tech to keep it fighting fit against the rest of the connected speaker systems out on the market. It's not just a DAB/FM radio, as it also includes built-in...

Excellent Customer Service

 

An excellent unit. Did all I required including blue tooth connectivity and internet radio. Sounds great. It developed an unusual intermittent fault once out of the guarantee period of two years. Ruark repaired the unit for just the cost of returning...
