Product Description

For over 30 years the folk at Ruark have worked within the UK audio industry creating high quality loudspeaker systems for music and audio enthusiasts. The latest R1 has the same great sound but now has bluetooth streaming. So, get your smart phone out and start listening! 


The Ruark R1 MKIII is the third generation radio that upgrades the internals of its predecessor but keeps the sleek appearance of the original.

This exquisite radio arrives in a gorgeous compact design with a stylish lacquered wood veneer finish. It features a 3.5” custom high-fidelity drive unit for excellent sound quality and it’s simple to use thanks to its intuitive ‘Rotodial’ control system. There’s also a facility to adjust tone - plus a loudness option - so you can set the sound to suit your own taste.

With the addition of DAB+, the R1 Mk3 is future-proofed for any transmission upgrades and gains the recently introduced ‘digital radio tick’ accreditation - one of only a few digital radios to do so. It also now supports Bluetooth for wireless music streaming from a paired smartphone or tablet. A USB port on the back can be used to charge up your smartphone while you're streaming, so you don't have to worry about running out of battery. Programme and set-up information are displayed with crystal clear clarity on the latest technology OLED (organic light emitting diode) display. The really good thing about this new display, is that it retains its vivid clarity at any viewing angle and the display brightness can be adjusted to suit your requirements, both in active and standby modes.

Dual alarms allow for once, daily, weekday and weekend settings. Both alarms (radio or buzzer) can be set to the volume required, depending on whether you’re a light or heavy sleeper. Also included is an adjustable sleep timer and a snooze function. The R1’s back panel features a headphone socket and a line input to connect to your MP3 player or any other audio device. And on the rear panel there’s a pair of high quality gold plated phono outputs for recording or playback through an audio system.

About Ruark Audio: In 2004 the Ruark family made a radical decision to diversify from making just domestic hi-fi equipment and apply their expertise to design a small range of high quality radio based products, choosing to call this development ‘Vita Audio’. That name was changed in or about 2013 to better convey the family business message. 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. 

In The News

Since launching, their models quickly became recognised as the finest available winning numerous accolades and awards. Most memorably the Sunday Telegraph (UK) described the R1 as ‘the Aston Martin of DAB radios’

Our Take

The sentiment expressed by the Sunday Telegraph succinctly describes the Ruark Audio philosophy and we sincerely believe that their products are an investment which you will cherish and enjoy for years to come. A number of our staff own Ruark Audio radios and will confirm that they not only perform well but the roto dial is very easy to use. Learning time just 60 seconds! With a superb tuner, DAB and FM performance is exceptional, but the R1i is also ready to receive DAB+ transmissions making it a future-proof investment. Some of our staff have experimented with the range in their homes and can testify that ease-of-use and sound quality is exceptional, even in the hilly areas around Melbourne although reception quality varies depending on location.
