Ruark launches R5 High Fidelity Music System
Ruark’s new R5 High Fidelity Music System is multi-room prepared and can be wirelessly linked with the brand’s MRx, R2Mk3 and R7Mk3 models to provide synchronised sound all around the home.
R5 uses newly developed Class A-B amplifiers in a 2.1 configuration with active electronics to precisely control the loudspeaker units, “delivering sound with unrivalled quality.”
The stereo speakers have been developed to provide a natural frequency response by means of a powerful neodymium magnet system coupled with a lightweight cone/coil assembly, and the long-throw subwoofer provides effortless extended bass for lifelike aural drama.
The R5’s enclosure is crafted from carefully selected materials and has been partitioned, damped and tuned to provide ideal conditions for the drive units and electronics.
Using the latest sound-processing technology, Ruark has been able to create a stereo soundstage with sonics more akin to a larger system with separate speakers.
As with the brand’s other products, the RotoDial controller makes operation simple, but also included with R5 is a matching ‘radio-link’ remote which mirrors exactly the controls on the unit, so aiming the remote is not required. The unit can also be controlled using Ruark’s LINK app for iOS and Android devices, which makes browsing music services/internet radio stations and setup for multi-room a simple task.
When it comes to playback, R5 has virtually every option covered, with Wi-Fi streaming, a multi-format CD player, aptX HD Bluetooth, DAB/FM and Internet radio tuners, USB playback/charge port, analogue and digital inputs including a dedicated RIAA turntable input.
The R5, when used with a TV, offers a complete home entertainment solution.
The unit is available spring 2019, finished in luxurious Rich Walnut or Soft Grey lacquer.
