Clearly Brilliant

Clearly Brilliant

Programme, time and alarm information are shown with vivid clarity on the latest technology OLED display. Clean and stylish, Ruark Audio's displays retain their readability at any viewing angle and the brightness can be adjusted to suit your needs, both when active and also in standby.

Beautifully Intuitive

Beautifully Intuitive

One of Ruark Audio's first projects when establishing their brand was to design an easy to use control system. The result is their trademark RotoDial controller. With the introduction of R1 Mk3 Ruark Audio made their RotoDial controller even better and now whether you own R1, R2, R4 or even R7 you will intuitively know how to use each due to the similarity of their operation.

Great Connectivity

Great Connectivity

Voice controlled devices from the likes of Amazon and Google are interesting technologies, but deciding which may be right for you can be daunting. This is a key reason why all of Ruark Audio's products incorporate Bluetooth and auxiliary inputs, so devices such as these can easily be connected and enjoyed with their products class leading sound. Also when technology changes then it is easy for you to upgrade as required.

BackPack II

BackPack II

Combine R1 with Ruark Audio's optional BackPack II and you will be able to enjoy R1 away from mains power. Placing batteries inside R1 would steal valuable speaker capacity, but BackPack II attaches seamlessly to R1 and once fitted can be left permanently in place as it charges automatically whenever mains power is re-applied. A full charge will provide up to twelve hours of mains free listening depending on volume.
