It was 14 years ago that Ruark launched their first generation R1. 14 years on and this winter they are delighted to announce the launch of their fourth generation. Like the original, the design of R1 Mk4 is simple yet stunning, but Ruark believe even more in-tune with what discerning customers are seeking today.
Ideal for the kitchen, perfect in the office and simply delightful to wake up to in the bedroom, Ruark's new R1 brings style to any room and with a quality Bluetooth receiver built in you can wirelessly stream to R1 from your phone or computer. Most importantly, if you love music then we are confident that you’ll find R1 Mk4 a revelation.
Each generation of Ruark's R1 has been an evolution of the original, but with R1 Mk4 they wanted it to be more progressive both in design and performance.
Ruark believe everyone deserves good design in their lives and the smart, elegant R3 system helps people enjoy life that little bit more. It 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.
R3’s carefully considered proportions create a purposeful look, whilst the cantilevered legs subtly angle the unit upwards giving the impression that it is looking up and ready to perform. Driving the system is a high fidelity two channel Class A-B amplifier and with their NS+ drivers and latest digital sound processing techniques Ruark have finely tailored the sound at every level to generate a realistic sound stage that extends way beyond R3’s compact stature. Whatever your taste in music, R3 is a remarkable all-in-one system that will fulfil the needs of even the most discerning listener.
Embodying Ruark's knowledge of the past with their vision of the future, R5 is the perfect ‘all-in-one’ system for music and design enthusiasts alike.
From feedback Ruark know that many love the design and features of R7, so with R5, they have scaled down their flagship model in all but sound to create a system which is simply pioneering. R5 is also multi-room ready and if desired can be wirelessly linked with their MRx, R2 Mk3 and R7 Mk3 to provide beautiful sound all around your home. Perfect on its own or with a TV as a complete home entertainment solution, R5 embodies Ruark's rich heritage with their awareness of changing technology in a system that is timeless and built to last.
With honed aesthetics and enhancements to sound and technology, R7 Mk3 is a wonderful ground-breaking sound system that will satisfy music lovers and design aficionados alike. A modern work of art, R7 Mk3 is the realisation of Ruark's dream to remaster the radiograms of yesteryear bringing this iconic ideology completely up to date. Furthermore with the addition of our optional TV mount, R7 can be transformed into a complete audio/visual system making it the centrepiece for all your home entertainment needs.
Ruark's audio heritage has enabled them to understand the synergy of cabinet, amplifier and drive unit design in creating beautiful sound. An example of this is R7‘s hand crafted enclosure which they have tuned to provide optimal conditions for the drive units and electronics.
Ruark's award-winning MR1 Bluetooth speakers will provide remarkable sound in multiple applications. Flawless as computer speakers, ideal to use with a turntable and a fantastic way to improve the sound of your TV, MR1 Mk2 will fill any room with quality sound without dominating it, making them perfect for music lovers and the design conscious alike.
On their own MR1 provides the foundation of a complete music system and with a turntable you can be part of the vinyl revival.
As you would expect from Ruark, MRx is something rather special! With great sound and a wide range of abilities, on its own MRx makes a perfect system for your lounge, kitchen or study, but linked with other MRx or our R2 Mk3, R5 and R7 Mk3 models it’s easy to build a wireless multi-room system for quality synchronised sound wherever required.
MRx has been built for wireless streaming and offers a fantastic choice of options. For direct streaming, its Bluetooth receiver allows quick and easy connection and with aptX technology you will enjoy CD quality sound from compatible devices. With a broadband internet connection MRx comes alive and allows access to internet radio and an almost infinite library of music through online services such as Spotify, Deezer, Tidal and Amazon Music. Moreover you can also stream music stored on other networked computers and also from your phone.
The new BackPack 2 transforms the R1 compact music system with DAB radio, and the MR1 wireless speakers into completely portable products. BackPack II attaches neatly to the back of both models, so you can now enjoy rich sound wherever mains power is not available.
It frees these miniature marvels from the mains power socket and into the bathroom or onto the decking and the great outdoors. Placing batteries inside takes valuable speaker capacity which can result in unrefined sound, but BackPack II allows R1 and MR1 to retain their rich mains powered performance, but with complete portability.
R7 AV MOUNT
Designed exclusively for R7, TVs and associated equipment can be integrated so they seemingly float above and below the cabinet of R7, keeping its elegant design intact.
Precision engineered in the UK, the R7 AV Mount will comfortably accommodate televisions up to 50 and with its swivel head, TVs can be turned and positioned to suit viewing requirements. Likewise the tempered glass shelf can also be adjusted to suit the height of most DVD and Satellite/Cable box combinations.
R5 WITH MRX SPEAKER
Whether you want to wirelessly stream or want to connect a turntable or TV, R5 has it covered. A pioneering music system, embodying the knowledge of their past and a vision of the future.
The Ruark MRX is the perfect system for any room in your home. With Multi-room, Music Streaming, Internet Radio, Bluetooth and a flexible range of inputs you have access to a wide range of connected music at your finger tips.
R5 WITH A PAIR OF MRX SPEAKERS
Ruark’s passion for ergonomics means that the brand constantly strives to improve the form, function and tactility of its products. The R5 will make a statement and add style to any living environment.
With a broadband internet connection, MRx comes alive and allows access to radio stations world-wide and an almost infinite library of music through on-line music services such as Spotify, Deezer, and Tidal, with Amazon Music also coming soon.
