Connection Heaven

Whether you want to wirelessly stream or want to connect a turntable or TV, R5 has it covered. For direct streaming, R5's aptX HD Bluetooth receiver provides above CD quality from compatible devices and with a broadband connection you'll have access to internet radio stations worldwide and an infinite library of music through services such as Spotify, Amazon Music, Deezer and Tidal. Moreover, with both analogue and digital inputs it's easy to connect and enjoy other devices. In particular R5 makes a great sound system for TVs.

Beautiful Inside Too

Beautiful Inside Too

Ruark Audio pride themselves on their visual design but with a heritage in high-fidelity, they know that it's what's beneath the surface that really counts! They are proud to say that they are hands-on with every aspect of their products design, spending endless hours debating and evaluating to create what they believe are the finest available. As an example, R5 uses a high capacity linear power supply with Class A-B amplifiers and active electronics and equalisation to precisely control the loudspeaker units. This technology is usually only found in specialist high value audio equipment.

Synchronised Sound

Synchronised Sound

With its powerful sound R5 will fill your room with music, but with its 'multi-room' capabilities it's easy to wirelessly link and sync with Ruark Audio's other internet enabled models such as MRx and R7 Mk3 to provide synchronised sound wherever you want it around your home. Linking and syncing with other units means that you can tailor the sound level round your home, just as you want, so whether you want to relax or party, with R5 you can do all this and more.

Intuitive To Control

Intuitive To Control

Ruark Audio's trademark RotoDial controller provides a slick control system which is easy to use and like their flagship R7, R5 also includes a matching remote which mirrors exactly the main controller. Using superior radio communication, the remote does not need to be aimed during operation and sited on a table or sitting in your hand the remote is an ergonomic delight. Also available for iOS and Android devices is Ruark Audio's app called "Ruark Link". This allows full control of R5 and is ideal for managing multi-room set-up and control.
