Product information

The Ruark R2i offers a complete music solution to those who love their music. Play either your favourite tunes directly from your iPod, your favourite shows on the DAB/DAB+/FM tuner or direct from music stored on your laptop through an auxiliary input.

With materials hand built to last the R2i delivers exceptional acoustic performance and is complemented superbly by a midnight black high gloss finish and cool steel panels with mesh grilles. This is one piece of equipment which is elegant enough to fit into any proud home.

The look of the R2i exudes style, but sonically it’s equally impressive with custom made high-fidelity 20 watts speakers and electronics providing a scale and quality of sound that simply belie the R2i’s discreet dimensions.

Wake up and fall asleep to your favourite artist with simple to use alarm and sleep timer functions, perfect for winding down or shaking you into life. A compact remote handset will also mean you’ll spend less time getting up to select your songs or channel and more time appreciating the sound.

With the R2i there’s no need for a magnifying glass. Stop straining your eyes; a clear high contrast and large display means you can see clearer and from further, the time or the station you have selected. Intuitively, by recognising individual headphones, the system will automatically remember the volume level last used for that particular set, great for different age groups and musical tastes.

This product is compatible with any iPod/iPhone models produced from January 2004 but iPod shuffles and earlier models are supported by front and rear auxiliary inputs so whatever model you have, you will be able to enjoy all your favourites.

Q & As


Ruark R2i DAB Digital Radio Clock and iPod Dock 4.8 5 11 11
Excellent Sound and Beautiful Excellent sound, excellent reception, easily operated, attractive appearance. My favorite thing is R2i uses a 'switch mode' type power adaptor and will work in any Country with mains voltage from 100-240v, 50-60Hz. 05 March 2014
ideal for ipod and radio We have a good hifi system in another room and this R2 is the closest thing to hifi seperates without spending a fortune. Ruark also have a very neat solution (and cheap) to convert it to the new ipod connector. Only downsides are the small number of radio presets 5 for fm and 5 for dab and the remote control which is not great. The 5 stars are for the sound not the interface which if you are used to sony products or similar you will find some awkwardness in the way the unit works. USB playback would also be nice in a new version!!! 20 March 2013
Beautiful Product Fantastic product, super sound. highly recommended. After a lot of research I bought this after being disappointed by a pioneer product, this is in a different league and although does not have airplay I feel the additional £100 for far superior sound is worth the money. This was the best sounding product and Dab radio I listened to and it looks great, not huge but a big sound, only better product was the model above R4i. I don't write many reviews but this deserves a good review, also the service from John Lewis is second to none, go listen and buy from them. 30 July 2012
Rediscovered my love of music I bought this beauty a week ago to replace a cheap gear4 ipod dock and a half decent pure dab radio. I considered Bose and Sonos but chose this after listening to all 3 in store. The sound quality is stunning. After listening to this I have rediscovered my love of music. Everything sounds better. Buy this and turn the telly / computer off. Trust me. Worth every (extravagant) penny. Best thing I've bought in years. 24 May 2012
Highly recommended! I already had the clock radio version so I hoped that the ipod dock version was going to be a quality product too. It is! It looks sleek (needs dusting frequently!), compact and the sound is great. The remote control is useful, but looks and feels a little 'cheap'. However, overall the system is very easy to use, the sound is excellent and all packaged in a neat small unit . 06 May 2012
Top top dab radio As the tilte says wonderful sound well worth the money 07 March 2012
Superb sound and build quality I purchased this product for my mother as a christmas present she is 71.I found this product was easy to set up and was straight forward with simple easy to operate buttons and remote control. The build quality is very good and the sound quality is superb I may buy one of these for myself! 28 January 2012
Fantastic sound and a great looking product too. The Vita R2i is simply in a league of its own. This DAB/FM radio with iPod dock not only looks stunning but also features some of the best sound to come from a DAB radio. Complete with a remote control so you can simply sit back and enjoy the rich sound, this radio really is something to behold. 11 August 2011
