Embodying our knowledge of the past with our vision of the future, R5 is the perfect 'all-in-one' system for music and design enthusiasts alike.
From feedback we know that many love the design and features of R7, so with R5, we have scaled down our flagship model in all but sound to create a system which is simply pioneering. R5 is also multi-room ready and if desired can be wirelessly linked with our MRx, R2 Mk3 and R7 Mk3 to provide beautiful sound all around your home. Perfect on its own or with a TV as a complete home entertainment solution, R5 embodies our rich heritage with our awareness of changing technology in a system that is timeless and built to last.
Whether you want to wirelessly stream or want to connect a turntable or TV, R5 has it covered. For direct streaming, R5's aptX HD Bluetooth receiver provides above CD quality from compatible devices and with a broadband connection you'll have access to internet radio stations worldwide and an infinite library of music through services such as Spotify, Amazon Music, Deezer and Tidal. Moreover, with both analogue and digital inputs it's also easy to connect and enjoy other devices. In particular R5 makes a great sound system for TVs.
Beautiful Inside Too
We pride ourselves on our visual design but with our high-fidelity heritage, we know that it's what's beneath the surface that really counts! We are proud to say that we are hands-on with every aspect of our products design, spending endless hours debating and evaluating to create what we believe are the finest available. As an example, R5 uses a high capacity linear power supply with Class A-B amplifiers and active electronics and equalisation to precisely control the loudspeaker units. This technology is usually only found in specialist high value audio equipment.
With its powerful sound R5 will fill your room with music, but with its 'multi-room' capabilities it's easy to wirelessly link and sync with our other internet enabled models such as MRx and R7 Mk3 to provide synchronised sound wherever you want it around your home. Linking and syncing with other units means that you can tailor the sound level around your home, just as you want, so whether you want to relax or party, with R5 you can do all this and more.
Intuitive To Control
Our trademark RotoDial controller provides a slick control system which is easy to use and like our flagship R7, R5 also includes a matching remote which mirrors exactly the main controller. Using superior radio communication, the remote does not need to be aimed during operation and sited on a table or sitting in your hand the remote is an ergonomic delight. Also available for iOS and Android devices is our app called UNDOK. This allows full control of R5 and is ideal for managing multi-room set-up and control.
