From vision to hi-fi heritage, Ruark Audio are hands-on with every aspect of product design, enlisting endless hours evaluating the finest components available. For instance, R5 uses a high capacity linear power supply with Class A-B amplifiers and active electronics and equalisation; technology usually only found in specialist high value audio equipment.

The trademark RotoDial controller lends a slick control system which is simple to use and like the flagship R7, R5 has a matching remote which reflects accurately the main controller. Using supreme radio communication, the remote doesn't need to be targeted during operation. The LINK app is available for both iOs and Android, giving total control of R5 music system and organisation of multi-room set-up and controls.

Designed for Sound

Ruark understands the synergy of cabinet, amplifier and drive unit in producing great sound. R5's enclosure is tuned for peak performance from the drive units and electronics. The speakers are engineered to provide a stunning natural frequency response via powerful neodymium magnet system and lightweight cone assembly. Active subwoofer provides seamless extended bass for natural aural drama.

A World of Radio

R5’s DAB and FM tuner gives exceptional performance and with DAB+ built in, it is futureproof. For international broadcasts, R5’s can access numerous stations and podcasts globally, so you quickly find stations you will love familiar and new.

CD offers one of the finest ways to enjoy music, so the R5 caters to this analog playback option by featuring a high spec slot loading play for high quality CD playback. R5 can play CDs encoded with popular audio formats like WAV, MP3 and AAC and further displays track and artist data when it is available.

While designed for wireless connectivity, the back panel includes an Ethernet socket for direct connection to your network if required. Wired Ethernet assures reliability in playback and can be useful if the wi-fi signal from your router is variable or weak. Ethernet powerline adaptors are a sturdy and suitable solution.

R5 employs the latest aptX HD audio technology which partners with Bluetooth to stream high definition music wirelessly from compatible devices. Bluetooth’s simplicity has made it the superior choice for audio streaming, and it functions with almost all leading music and radio apps including Apple Music, TuneIn and BBC Sounds.

Spotify Connect

Spotify, world-leading music streaming service with a vast library of over 20 million tracks, is built in and with a Spotify Premium account you can select R5 as your playback device and control using the RotoDial, remote control or Ruark LINK app (iOS and Android).
