Clearly Brilliant

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.

Intuitive Controls

Ruark’s trademark RotoDial controller on top of the R1 provides a refreshingly elegant solution. With all of Ruark’s models mirroring this interface, whichever model you own, you will intuitively know how to operate each.

Great Connectivity

Voice control and streaming from the likes of Amazon and Google are exciting new technologies, but knowing which one is right for you and which will stand the test of time can be a daunting decision. This is a key reason why Ruark products incorporate Bluetooth and additional inputs, so new technology devices can easily be connected and enjoyed with Ruark’s class leading sound and when technology changes (which it is bound to) then it is very easy for you to upgrade as required.

Best Radio Performance

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.

Wireless Bluetooth Connectivity

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.

Bedside Companion

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.

High Fidelity Radio

R1 is regarded as one of the best sounding radios you can buy, that’s because Ruark 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 along with Ruark’s custom full range drive unit designed for superb dynamics and a smooth natural frequency response.

Hand Crafted Perfection

R1 is crafted from quality materials which Ruark know from their 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 Ruark products feel as good to touch as they are to see and hear.

USB – Connect and Charge

On the rear of R1 there is a headphone output and a switchable input so other audio devices can be connected and enjoyed with R1’s superb sound quality.  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.
