Quick Look

The Ruark Audio BackPack II transforms your R1 tabletop radio or MR1 wireless speakers into completely portable products. A battery pack that attaches to the back of either model so you can enjoy rich quality sound wherever you please.

BackPack II transforms the R1 deluxe tabletop radio and MR1 wireless speakers into completely portable products. It frees these miniature marvels from the mains power socket and into the bathroom or onto the decking and the great outdoors. Placing batteries inside takes valuable speaker capacity which can result in unrefined sound, but BackPack II allows R1 and MR1 to retain their rich mains powered performance, but with complete portability.

A total evolution of the original, BackPack II attaches seamlessly to R1 and MR1 and once fitted can be left permanently in place as it charges automatically whenever the music systems are connected to a mains power supply. A full charge will deliver up to twelve hours of mains free listening depending on volume.

Ruark Audio Backpack - Take Your Music Anywhere

About Ruark Audio

Based on the south east coast of England, Ruark Audio are a family-owned company with an amazing, passionate team that has a genuine love of music. Founder, Alan O’Rourke, grew up playing guitar and surrounded by hi-fi equipment through his dad’s work in the industry. So it’s not entirely surprising that he went on to start his own audio company, originally designing and manufacturing a fine range of loudspeakers and now to a small but high-quality range of radio based products that we are also extremely enthusiastic.  The following is an exert from their company profile:

"We have always loved design. Our ultimate mission is to make beautiful products that blend in with your environment, and are easy to live with as they are enjoyable to listen to. Much of our inspiration comes from our surroundings and the things we love most. The curves of our favourite car, the functionality of a piece of classic furniture, the texture of a knitted sweater or the technology of the latest gadget in our office. We are constantly inspired and looking for new ways to shape and develop our products. We never stop."

And this last point is so true. Just when you think they can't do anymore with a product, along comes a new version to take listeners to a new level! The look of all the models exudes style - retro and modern at the same time - but sonically they're equally impressive. Custom made high-fidelity drive units and electronics provide a scale and quality of sound that belies the relative compact size. Want to know more?
