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


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.

Beautiful sound, easy to use


Fine, room-fliiing sound with intuitive controls. The internet radio works well, unlike other makes i have tried. Beautifully finished and overall, worth the high cost. The remote control is unnecessarily small but I haven't lost it yet.

Great sound but a bit pricey


Bought this to replace a tired Bose. Walnut finish, well made with 'retro' looks. Sound quality for speech and music great, thanks to fully adjustable treble and bass options. The little hand-held remote is very light and fiddly to use.- might be a...
