“It’s the best all-round performer in the DAB/FM radio category, regardless of price.”
What Hifi Awards

Radio never looked or sounded this good
Beautifully simple, R1 is the third generation of our iconic table radio. Ideal in the kitchen, perfect in the office and simply delightful to wake up to in the bedroom, if you love listening to the radio then you’ll find our R1 a revelation.

Featuring a DAB, DAB+ and FM Tuner, Bluetooth Receiver, Switchable Line Input, Stereo Headphone Output, USB Power Port, 20 Station Pre-sets, High Contrast OLED Display and Comprehensive Dual Alarms combined with a punchy Class A-B amplifier and high-fidelity speaker make R1 we believe, the best and most complete table-top radio available.

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.

Radio performance on DAB and FM is first class and with DAB+ technology also built in, R1 can be used in countries such as Australia, Denmark, France, Germany and Norway where this updated system is now being used. DAB+ also ensures that R1 is future-ready for the implementation of this digital radio technology in the UK.

With a quality Bluetooth receiver built in, you can wirelessly stream your music, internet radio and other services such as Spotify from your smartphone or computer direct to R1. R1 also remembers up to seven previous Bluetooth connections and allows users to conveniently switch between them. Most importantly sound quality over Bluetooth with R1 you will find sublime.

R1 makes a glorious bedside clock radio and with comprehensive dual alarms you’ll be woken from your slumbers with beautiful natural sound exactly when you want. R1 also has adjustable sleep and snooze timers so you can doze off and snooze with its soothing sound.

R1 is regarded as one of the best sounding radios you can buy, but that’s because we understand the importance of enclosure and drive unit design to create great sound. In every way R1 has been developed like a high fidelity speaker crafted from materials chosen for their excellent acoustic properties and our custom full range drive unit designed for superb dynamics and a smooth natural frequency response.

R1 is crafted from quality materials which we know from our years spent designing High-Fidelity loudspeakers, provide the best sound, but aesthetically the combination of natural hand finished wood and precise cool man-made materials have the added benefit of making our products feel as good to touch as they are to see and hear.

On the rear of R1 we’ve provided a headphone output and a switchable input so other audio devices can be connected and enjoyed with R1’s sonorous sound. R1 also features a USB charge port designed to charge Smartphones and other similar devices. This is particularly useful when using R1 as a bedside radio, so your phone is charged and ready for when you wake.

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.
