Ruark R2 Mk 4 DAB Radio/ Streamer Even Slimmer

Ruark Audio's R2 Mk4 all-in-one R2 music system is slim, stylish and streaming-friendly.

Ruark's fourth generation R2 follows the R1's Mk4 makeover and brings a slatted wooden grille and an ultra-strong “bonded glass” display to the looks department, alongside it becoming even more comfortable on windowsills and bookshelves thanks to a twenty percent slimmer profile (185 x 340 x 150mm (HxWxD)).

Ruark's signature 'RotoDial' controller sits atop the R2 Mk4, while the display has been updated to a full-colour auto-dimming LCD screen.

The Class A-B linear amplifier linked with the company's proprietary neodymium NS+ drivers and adaptive equalisation promises good results for music and spokenword content.

Streaming audio comes by way of Spotify Connect, Amazon Music and Deezer support with built-in Bluetooth 5, allowing you to pair the R2 Mk4 with just about any smartphone or tablet. In addition, there is a USB-C port for both charging and playback, plus DAB+, FM and internet tuners with pre-sets. Finally, you get a proper headphone out and an aux-in.

Should you want to control things from the comfort of your chair, you can add the optional remote or use Frontier Silicon's UNDOK app with the R2 Mk4.
