RuarkAudio R3S Compact 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 dynamic High Fidelity amplifier combined with our custom NS+ drivers and for R3S we’ve now included STEREO+ sound processing which we developed for our limited edition R5 Signature. This creates a broader sound-stage with depth and realism that extends way beyond R3S’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 R3S will maximise your enjoyment of this timeless medium.
DAB/DAB+ and FM tuners provide quick access to local and national broadcasts and its Internet Tuner allows you access high quality streams and stations world-wide.

In addition with the growth of Podcasts, R3S now has a source dedicated to this increasingly popular format. For listen again shows and whatever your interest, a podcast to suit your taste is only a few clicks away using our slick RotoDial controller or supplied IR remote. Also available is a free Android and iOS control app called Oktiv. This also allows full control of R3S and is particularly useful for searching Internet radio stations and podcasts.

Alongside standard CDs, R3S 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, R3S is a remarkable all-in-one system that will fulfill the needs of even the most discerning listener.
