Ruark Audio Lauches Fourth Generation R1 Deluxe Bluetooth Radio
14 years after launching their now-iconic R1 radio, Ruark Audio is delighted to announce the launch of their fourth generation. Like the original, the design of R1 Mk4 is simple yet stunning, but we believe 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 we are confident that you’ll find R1 Mk4 a revelation.
Each generation of the R1 has been an evolution of the original, but with R1 Mk4 Ruark Audio wanted it to be more progressive both in design and performance.
Using a precision moulding process has allowed Ruark Audio to gently profile the enclosure providing a fresh new look and the perfect surface for our new Light Cream and Espresso 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 Eames like vibe, but overall, the design is still unique and distinctly Ruark.
FM parameters can be set to suit the 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.
As Ruark Audio said back in 2006, radio never sounded or looked this good. Visit the Zakaa Urban boutique to experience the look and sound of radios from Ruark Audio.
