Critics have quoted the Ruark Audio R1 as ‘the Aston Martin of DAB radios’ a statement of which we are justly proud. Beautifully simple, R1 is ideal for the kitchen, perfect in the office and simply delightful to wake up to in the bedroom, but most importantly, if you love radio then we are confident that you’ll find R1 a revelation.
Programme, time and alarm information are shown with vivid clarity on the latest technology OLED display. Clean and stylish, our displays retain their readability at any viewing angle and the brightness can be adjusted to suit your needs, both when active and also in standby.
One of our first projects when establishing Ruark Audio was to design an easy to use control system. The result is our trademark RotoDial controller. With the introduction of R1 Mk3 we made our RotoDial controller even better and now whether you own R1, R2, R4 or even R7 you will intuitively know how to use each due to the similarity of their operation.
Voice controlled devices from the likes of Amazon and Google are interesting technologies, but deciding which may be right for you and which will stand the test of time can be daunting. This is a key reason why all our products incorporate Bluetooth and auxiliary inputs, so devices such as these can easily be connected and enjoyed with our products class leading sound. Also when technology changes (which it is bound to) then it is easy for you to upgrade as required.
Combine R1 with our optional BackPack II and you will be able to enjoy R1 wherever mains power is not available from the bathroom to the great outdoors. Placing batteries inside takes valuable speaker capacity, but BackPack II allows R1 to retain its rich mains powered performance with the benefit of complete portability.
A total evolution of the original, BackPack II attaches seamlessly to R1 and once fitted can be left permanently in place as it charges automatically whenever connected to a mains power supply. A full charge will provide up to twelve hours of mains free listening depending on volume.
