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 also easy to connect and enjoy other devices. In particular R5 makes a great sound system for TVs.

 

BEAUTIFUL INSIDE TOO

We pride ourselves on our visual design but with our high-fidelity heritage, we know that it’s what’s beneath the surface that really counts! We are proud to say that we are hands-on with every aspect of our products design, spending endless hours debating and evaluating to create what we 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.

 

INTUITIVE TO CONTROL

Our trademark RotoDial controller provides a slick control system which is easy to use and like our 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 our app called Ruark LINK. This allows full control of R5 and is ideal for managing multi-room set-up and control.

 

DESIGNED FOR SOUND

Our audio heritage means we understand the synergy of cabinet, amplifier and drive unit design in creating great sound. For example R5’s enclosure has been tuned to provide optimal conditions for the drive units and electronics. Furthermore, our stereo speakers have been engineered to provide a beautifully natural frequency response by means of a powerful neodymium magnet system and lightweight cone assembly. Finally, our active subwoofer provides effortless extended bass for lifelike aural drama.

 

A WORLD OF RADIO

For local and national broadcasts R5’s DAB and FM tuner provides excellent performance and with DAB+ also built in, R5 is future ready for the rollout of this technology in the UK and around the world. For international broadcasts, R5’s Internet tuner allows access to boundless stations and podcasts world-wide, so whether you’re an expatriate missing home or a music lover into bluegrass or jazz, with R5 you will quickly find stations you will love familiar and new.

 

MULTI-ROOM READY

With its powerful sound R5 can fill your home with music, but with its ‘multi-room’ capabilities it’s easy to wirelessly link and sync with our other models such as MRx, R2 Mk3and R7 Mk3 to provide sound wherever you want it. Linking and syncing with other units means that you can tailor the sound level around your home, just how you want, so whether you want to party or relax, with R5 and our other products you can do all this and more.

 

MULTI-FORMAT CD PLAYER

For the finest sound, CD is still one of the best ways to experience music and R5 features a high specification slot loading player that will make your CD collection sound better than ever. Alongside standard CDs, R5 also plays self-made CDs encoded with popular audio formats such as WAV, MP3 and AAC and in addition displays track and artist information when this data is available on the disc.

 

ETHERNET CONNECTION

R5 is designed for wireless connectivity, but on the back panel we’ve also included an ethernet socket so R5 can be directly connected to your network if required. A wired ethernet connection ensures reliability in playback and can also prove useful if you want to use R5 where the wi-fi signal from your router is variable or weak. In this case, ethernet powerline adaptors are a reliable and ideal solution.

 

CONNECT, PLAYBACK AND ENJOY

R5 has comprehensive direct connectivity, allowing devices such as a turntable, Amazon Dot, Google Chromecast or Apple AirPort Express to be connected and enjoyed. In particular R5’s optical input provides a convenient connection point for most modern TVs making it a fantastic home entertainment solution that will greatly increase your enjoyment of film and TV. Also included is a USB socket so you can playback music stored on a memory stick in a variety of popular audio codecs.

 

HIGH DEFINITION BLUETOOTH

R5 features the very latest aptX HD audio technology which partners with Bluetooth so you can stream high definition music wirelessly from compatible devices to R5 with sound that is indistinguishable from a wired connection. Bluetooth’s ease of use has made it the foremost method for audio streaming, and it works with virtually all leading music and radio apps including Apple Music, TuneIn and BBC Sounds.

 

SPOTIFY CONNECT BUILT IN

R5 has Spotify the world’s leading music streaming service built in and with a Spotify Premium account you can select R5 as your playback device and then control the music using R5’s RotoDial, remote control or our Ruark LINK app for iOS and Android devices. With a vast library of over 20 million tracks, Spotify Premium and R5 will allow you to discover new music and enjoy old favourites with sound that will transform your listening experience.

 

VIVID CLARITY

Programme, time and alarm status are shown with vivid clarity on R5’s Organic LED (OLED) display. The display is chemically bonded to the glass front panel for absolute legibility and contrast at any viewing angle and the brightness can be adjusted to suit your requirements, when active and also in standby.
