Inside Technology

Ruark pride themselves on visual design they know every piece of technology beneath the surface that really counts! Lots of thought and time has been put into R5, it 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, pretty impressive, right?
