Ruark Audio R1 Radio

Elegant and beautifully simple, the new R1 is the third generation of the iconic table radio which started the Ruark Audio story. The product marked the transition from manufacturing loudspeakers for hi-fi enthusiasts, into quality compact audio systems - still with class-leading sound but with wide-ranging customer appeal.

At a glance, the new R1 appears remarkably similar to its predecessor, but look closely and you will see that almost everything about it has been refined. The improved RotoDial control system looks very slick, and combined with the latest technology OLED display, now offers a control interface that is crystal clear and intuitive to use.

The cabinet retains the same distinct dimensions, but is now available in a choice of Soft White and Soft Black lacquers or Rich Walnut, which features a combination of real wood lippings and veneers. These new finishes, combined with the refreshed design of the fascia and rear panel, take the tactility and craftsmanship of the new R1 to an even greater level.

Internally, Ruark has also made further strides in performance and technology. Like the original models, radio performance via DAB and FM is exceptional, and with DAB+ also on board the new R1 is future-proofed for any transmission upgrades. In addition to its excellent radio performance, there is now also a quality Bluetooth receiver, allowing you to stream music wirelessly to the new R1 from Bluetooth enabled devices. The addition of Bluetooth makes the new R1 a perfect tabletop and bedside companion, providing an expansive and natural sound that makes any music choice all the more enjoyable.

Numerous other features are also built in, including a comprehensive dual alarm and a USB charge port, which will recharge most smartphones. If you want to enjoy the new R1 out & about, then the addition of our optional CarryPack and BackPack allow it to be enjoyed wherever mains power is not available.

Power Supply

The R1 contains a power supply which operates on mains voltages from 100-240v / 50-60Hz, and the PSU comes supplied with UK and European style plug adaptors as standard. However please note that an appropriate travel adapter or 14v PSU (with local power plug) is required for use in other territories, which need to be purchased separately. Please contact Audio Sanctuary prior to purchase if you are unsure, and we can advise.
