Ruark Audio R2 Mk3


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

Excellent product
