When the Herald Sun published its Household Gift Guide for 2015 only five select products were featured, and it was Ruark’s third generation R2 streaming system that stood front and centre of the rest. Packed with the latest streaming features and loaded to the hilt with sound staging not expected from an all-in-one system you’d easily fit atop your kitchen counter, the R2 Mk3 quickly established itself as the perfect marriage between design and musicality.
Though the new R2 in many ways resembles its predecessor, at least aesthetically, its retro chassis is where the similarity ends. Far beyond the Mk2i’s DAB and DAB+ compatible stereo tuner and docking port, the R2 Mk3 is packed with the latest streaming technologies like Wi-Fi compliance, internet radio, Spotify Connect, Bluetooth, USB 2.0 playback, and UPnP DLNA compatibility. It’s a complete overhaul of the previous Award-winning R2i. The same timeless design features with an all-new host of functions.
Gone are the days of the old docking port. This all-in-one streamer wirelessly integrates itself with virtually all of today’s digital music sources. MP3, WMA, AAC, FLAC, and WAV up to 96kHz/24-bit, the R2 Mk3 is designed to sync with contemporary music formats and reproduce CD quality audio and above. The R2 Mk3 presents itself not simply as an upgrade to the old R2 Mk2i but as an entirely new system.
Delivered in two new matt finishes, soft black and soft white, as well as the ever popular walnut, Ruark's R2 Mk3 is a sleek new streaming unit and a technological tour-de-force. Visit our Brunswick street store and listen for yourself, or give us a call and place an order. These Ruark’s are in serious demand.
