Deluxe Tabletop Radio
Limited Edition

Every year we introduce a unique limited edition of our iconic R1 and for autumn/winter 2017 we have chosen an attractive blue-green matte, which we have called ‘Sea Green’. This beautiful colour draws its inspiration from the tranquil blues and greens found in our planet’s beautiful oceans and brings the warmth and feel of summer days by the sea to the long and cold dark days of winter. A guaranteed talking point, R1 Sea Green will bring a fresh and vibrant feel to any room in your home.  

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.

With its refreshed look, honed performance and addition of Bluetooth audio streaming, the new R1 has been painstakingly evolved, making it, we believe, the best and most complete tabletop radio available.
