We 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 our NS+ drivers and latest digital sound processing techniques we 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.
With such a vast choice of stations, radio is still one of the best ways to enjoy music and chat and with its SmartRadio tuner R3 has been designed to make your enjoyment of this medium the best ever. DAB/DAB+ and FM tuners provide quick access to local and national broadcasts but with an Internet tuner also included, R3 allows you access to stations and podcasts world-wide, including many listen-again services. Whatever your taste in music or talk, with R3 you will quickly find stations new and old you will love and if you live abroad you can stay in touch by still enjoying your favourite shows from home.
Music streaming services are good, but for the finest sound, CD is still one of the best ways to listen and with its high specification player, R3 will make the best of your CD collection. Also along with the revival in vinyl records, here at Ruark we believe that playing something tactile like a CD is an experience that should not be lost to time and that by purchasing physical music we are supporting music and the artists we love. Alongside standard CDs, R3 also plays self-made CDs encoded with popular formats such as WAV and MP3 and in addition displays track and artist information when this data is available on the disc.
