Finally for everyone who wanted the full feature set of the R7 but in a smaller, easier to house package we have the R5 model! R5 is the perfect ‘all-in-one’ system for music and design enthusiasts alike. It is multi-room ready and is a great addition to a TV for a complete entertainment system.

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. The R5 also incorporates a RIAA stage more commonly known as a turntable input so vinyl lovers are not left out in the cold!

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. R5 also 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 the Ruark LINK app.

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

Ruark always deliver stunning visual designs and R5 is no exception. With their high-fidelity heritage we know they are hands-on with every aspect of the products design, spending endless hours debating and evaluating to create what we believe are some of the finest single box solutions available.

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

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.

From our perspective the R5 has great looks, fabulous audio performance and a huge gamut of facilities and connectivity for a single box solution. It is difficult to find a failing in the R5's offering making it an awesome solution. The only choice is whether to opt for Rich Wanut or Soft Grey - What are you waiting for?
