Product description

R1 Deluxe Bluetooth Radio - 14 years in the making

It was 14 years, almost to the day when ruarkaudio first launched their now iconic R1 radio. 14 years on and this winter of 2020 ruarkaudio is delighted to announce the launch of the fourth generation. Like the original, the design of R1 Mk4 is simple yet stunning, but ruarkaudio believes even more in-tune with what discerning customers are seeking today.

Ideal for the kitchen, perfect in the office and simply delightful to wake up to in the bedroom, the new R1 brings style to any room and with a quality Bluetooth receiver built in you can wirelessly stream to R1 from your phone or computer. Most importantly, if you love music then ruarkaudio is confident that you’ll find R1 Mk4 a revelation.

Please note:

Improved power management with optional battery pack.

Optional remote control with 4 direct access pre-sets.

Note: The ruarkaudio - R1 MKIV deluxe Bluetooth radio is available in these two finishes: Espresso lacquer and light cream lacquer.

A New Approach

Each generation of R1 by ruarkaudio has been an evolution of the original, but with R1 Mk4 ruarkaudio wanted it to be more progressive both in design and performance.

Using a precision moulding process has allowed ruarkaudio to gently profile the enclosure providing a fresh new look and the perfect surface for the new Light Cream and light cream finishes. With acoustic treatment the enclosure is sturdy and acoustically inert, providing the ideal housing for our electronics and NS+ driver.

Enhancing the design further is a beautiful hand-crafted slatted wood grille. This brings added sophistication and creates a timeless vibe, but overall, the design is still unique and distinctly Ruark.

A New Standard in Sound

The previous R1 models by ruarkaudio were critically acclaimed for their sound, but with R1 Mk4 ruarkaudio has further raised the bar! With their heritage in high-fidelity loudspeakers ruarkaudio understands the complexities of enclosure and drive unit design and making sure that both are matched to each other. In particular their latest neodymium NS+ driver, as used in the ruarkaudio R3 and R5 models, provides a smooth and extended frequency response and in R1 Mk4's tuned enclosure delivers an impressive bass performance.

Driving the system is a punchy Class A/B linear amplifier for exceptional dynamics and with adaptive equalisation an eminently listenable sound is provided at all volume levels.

A New Standard in Features

The crisp OLED display by ruarkaudio clearly shows time, alarm and programme information and auto adjusts to suit ambient light levels, making it a perfect bedside companion. Radio reception is excellent, and a Bluetooth receiver allows you to enjoy R1’s great sound when streaming from your phone or computer.

FM parameters can be set to suit US and Japanese needs and a multilingual user interface makes R1 a truly international proposition. Also with a real time clock built in, time and date are kept active when power is disconnected or when transmitted data is not available.

The list of features continues, but other highlights include a USB-C charge/shuffle playback port, headphone output, switchable line input and of course our trademark RotoDial control system. Finally, for those seeking distant operation, ruarkaudio has an optional compact remote control available.
