Ruark Celebrates 30 Years with Limited Edition R1 DAB+ Radio

DAB+ takes your radio listening experience to another level and now with more coverage than ever, the third generation Ruark R1 DAB+ radio should be on your Christmas wish list.

Ruark's limited edition R1 tabletop radio celebrates three decades of rich audio heritage and exceptional craftsmanship.

At first glance the R1 may resemble previous generations of the design. Scratch beneath the surface however, and you will discover that every model has been painstakingly and completely redesigned.

Featuring the very best in terms of technology, the R1 tabletop radio includes DAB, DAB+ and FM transmission, as well as a Bluetooth receiver to quickly and easily stream music wirelessly from a range of handheld devices, making it the perfect tabletop and bedside companion.

There's also a comprehensive dual alarm and USB charge port. For those wanting the convenience of being able to pick the R1 up and take it with you, the addition of Ruark’s optional CarryPack and BackPack transforms the R1 into the perfect portable partner.
