Ruark Audio R3S

SKU N/A Category


An award-winner made better
Based on the award-winning R3 model, the latest ‘S’ version features a powerful new processor, and revised circuitry for even more spacious and lifelike sound quality. The sleek style and feature-packed streamer remain just as before.

Enhanced sound – now with STEREO+
Powerful new processing now incorporates Ruark’s STEREO+ sound system. This gives you a wider and deeper sound that makes everything sound much more spacious and lifelike. For such a compact system, the wide-open sound is a revelation. Adaptive equalisation provides the ideal sound at all volume levels.

Stream your favourite music
Connect up to your Broadband connection via wi-fi or Ethernet and stream all the music you want. Compatible with popular services such as Spotify Connect (with Premium account), Amazon Music, and Deezer, the R3S gives you access to a near limitless range of music. If you enjoy listening to radio and podcasts from around the world, Internet radio services, including catch-up services are also on hand.

CD player built-in
For full compatibility with your treasured discs, the R3S is equipped with a built-in CD player. This high quality player lets you play all your existing discs without the need to transfer them to a storage device. The multi-format player is compatible with CD-R, CD-RW, MP3, WMA and AAC (320 Kbps) encoded music discs.

SmartRadio Tuner – includes DAB
As well as Internet radio, the R3S is equipped with DAB+/DAB/FM tuners. DAB (Digital Audio Broadcasting) gives access to the widest range of stations, in crisp and clear digital sound quality. In case your favourite stations aren’t available in DAB, this Ruark radio is also equipped with an FM tuner.

New generation Bluetooth 5 connection
For quick and easy connectivity, the R3S also features Bluetooth V5.0. Connect your smartphone, tablet or other Bluetooth music source and effortlessly stream your stored music or streaming music services.

Connect more
Perfect for giving your TV or games console a boost in quality, the R3S features a digital optical input. Link it up and you’ll enjoy a boost to the sound that easily beats most TV’s built-in speakers. RCA phono inputs are ideal for connecting analogue sources – such as a turntable with built-in phonostage, or even a cassette deck (RCA phono outputs are also standard). For a direct connection with your HiRes player, smartphone or computer, there’s also a USB-C connection for playback and charge.

Easy control, with Rotodial
At the centre of the R3S, you’ll find Ruark’s signature control system – Rotodial. This intuitive control system groups all the functions together and makes it easy to switch between sources, change the volume, change tracks and more. Alternatively, there’s the UNDOK app for smartphone control. An infrared remote control with direct access pre-sets is also supplied.

Sleek, OLED display with clock and alarm
With its OLED display, large format clock and built-in alarm, the R3S makes a premium bedside system. The easily programmed, dual alarm comes with a wide range of features, including once, daily, weekday and weekend settings plus snooze and sleep timers.

Luxurious wood and lacquer finishes
Ruark have a long held reputation for producing some of the finest wood-finished speakers and the R3S is no exception. Using real wood veneers and soft lacquer finishes, immaculately wrapped around a curved cabinet, the R3S is as good to look at as it sounds.
