New – Ruark Audio R1 Deluxe Tabletop Radio
Elegant and beautifully simple, the new R1 is the third generation of our iconic table radio which started the Ruark Audio story and marked our transition from manufacturing Hi-Fidelity loudspeakers, to quality compact audio systems.
At first glance, the new R1 appears remarkably similar to its predecessors, but look closely and you will see that everything about it has been refined.
Our updated ‘RotoDial’ control system looks slick, and combined with the latest OLED display, provides a control interface which is clear and intuitive to use.
The enclosure retains the same attractive dimensions, but with new lacquer finishes and a crisper design for the front and rear panels, the craftsmanship and desirability of the new R1 has been raised to an even greater level.
The new R1 now has a high quality Bluetooth receiver built in, so if required you can wirelessly stream your music, internet radio and other services such as Spotify.
Most modern MP3 players, Smartphone’s and computers now have Bluetooth transmitters built in, but moreover sound quality over Bluetooth with the new R1 is highly impressive.
Radios covered in buttons look ugly, so one of our first tasks when developing the original R1 was to design a control system which looked good and was easy to use.
The result was our unique RotoDial control system.
For the new R1 we’ve evolved our RotoDial further so it looks even better and with fewer buttons is even more instinctive to use.
On the rear panel you’ll find a headphone output and a switchable auxiliary input which allows other audio devices to be connected and enjoyed with R1’s sonorous sound.
Also the new R1 features a USB charge port so you can conveniently charge your Smartphone whenever needed.
