Ruark Audio has revealed the latest version of its award-winning R2 music system, the R2 Mk4, in Singapore.
Known for its class-leading sound quality, the award-winning music system now has a smaller footprint and a Scandanavian-inspired design to add a luxurious touch to homes.
The Mk4 refines the R2 with current technology such as Bluetooth 5.0, a USB-C port that supports both charging and playback, and support for popular streaming services. The R2 Mk4 – one of the company’s longest-established models – is a complete music system to suit the music needs of every generation on any occasion.
The new elegant design features an acoustically-treated, contoured polymer enclosure with hand–made slatted wood grilles, accented with a glass front panel and silver trim for a timeless retro-modern feel. The R2 Mk4 has a footprint that is 20% smaller than its predecessor, the Mk3.
The R2 Mk4 incorporates carefully selected technologies to deliver clear and effortless sound. Ruark’s signature high-fidelity Class A-B linear amplifier, along with the company’s proprietary neodymium Natural Sound+ (NS+) drivers and adaptive equalisation, creates a perfectly balanced sound for enjoying all music and spoken-word content.
The R2 Mk4 is fully-equipped to deliver listening experiences for the young and old alike. Its SmartRadio tuner offers traditional FM radio along with Internet Radio as well as the option for DAB radio.
The R2 Mk4 natively supports Spotify Connect, Deezer and Amazon Music, opening doors to an almost endless library of tunes.
With a Bluetooth 5 receiver and the latest power-efficient v5.2 firmware, supported devices can stream music more reliably and at a greater range without sacrificing sound quality.
This version of Bluetooth also supports Master Volume control so you can adjust the volume from your device and see the changes reflected on the R2 Mk4 display.
Aside from radio and streaming services, the R2 Mk4 gives users an extensive selection of ways to connect the music system between devices, such as a USB-C port for playback from a flash drive, an auxiliary line input, and a headphone output. The USB-C port can also be used for charging devices.
The R2 Mk 4 is available in light cream lacquer with ash grille and espresso lacquer with walnut grille with an SRP of S$799.00 and stock will be available from mid-November 2022.
