The new R2 brings one of our longest-established models right up to date, while retaining key features that made our original R2 a popular music system since its launch in 2007. The most obvious change from its predecessors is its slimmer footprint. Such elegant new proportions allow R2 to be placed almost anywhere in the home and make it perfect for a windowsill or bookcase.
The appearance of R2 is simple yet stunning. The enclosure, with precise lines and soft contours, combines with the hand crafted slatted wood grille to create a timeless retro-modern feel. Along with its bonded glass display and our trademark RotoDial controller, R2 is undoubtedly a Ruark design and the quality remains clear.
