RuarkAudio R3 Wireless Music 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.

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.

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.

Whatever your taste in music or talk, R3 is a remarkable all-in-one system that will fulfill the needs of even the most discerning listener.
