Ruark Audio R4 MK3

Ruark R4 Banner

Comprising an enhanced multi format CD player, aptX Bluetooth receiver, USB playback port, DAB/DAB+/FM tuners and auxiliary inputs united with a powerful 2.1 audio grade amplifier/speaker system.

The third generation R4 carries forward the ideology of our original model as a traditional music centre, though one designed and engineered for 21st century living.

The perfect solution for modern day technophobes, simply plug in and within minutes the new R4 IMS will give you room filling sound that will satisfy even the most discerning listener.

With our belief in evolutionary design the new R4 IMS looks reassuringly familiar, but both outside and in it has been meticulously re-engineered to make it better than ever.

With a smaller footprint, lower profile and selection of beautiful finishes the new R4 exudes style and with its new organic light-emitting diode (OLED) display, set-up and programme information is displayed with exceptional clarity from any viewing angle.

In addition our latest RotoDial controller is now integrated so users can now manage functions either directly from R4 or use its new dedicated infra-red remote.

With its compact ergonomic design the new remote control feels comfortable to hold and alongside our RotoDial control makes operation of R4 IMS simple and intuitive.

Internally we’ve also made enhancements. A revised slot loading CD mechanism is quick to operate and provides CD text information with compatible disks.

Radio reception is first class and with the built in aptX Bluetooth receiver you can stream and playback music with CD quality sound from compatible devices.

On the rear panel is a USB playback port for MP3, AAC and WMA files (which also doubles as a convenient mobile charge port) along with optical and analogue inputs.

In particular the new R4 makes a fantastic sound system for flat panel TVs with the optical input providing a convenient connection point and its rich expansive sound we guarantee will make your viewing so much more enjoyable.

Our design philosophy is far removed from the cloned systems that swamp our stores.

Using our long hi-fi heritage, we painstakingly engineer and design every aspect of our products here in the UK, to create what we believe are the best small audio products available and like our original, we believe that the new R4 again sets a class leading standard for aesthetic design and sound quality.

Most important it is a product which we guarantee you will love to use and cherish.
