The New R1
14 years in the making
It was 14 years ago that we first launched our now iconic R1 radio! This autumn we are pleased to announce the launch of our fourth-generation model, the R1 Mk4. We believe everyone deserves good design in their lives and, like the original, the look of the new R1 Mk4 is simple yet stunning. We believe it is even more in-tune with what discerning customers are seeking today.
Each generation of R1 has been an evolution of the predecessor, but with R1 Mk4 we wanted it to be more progressive both in design and performance. Discarding the R1's wood cabinet was a radical decision, but with the new generation we opted for a moulding process allowing us to gently profile the enclosure. This gives the form factor a fresh feel and provides a perfect surface for our new Light Cream and Espresso finishes. Complimenting the design is a hand-crafted slatted wood grille. This brings further sophistication and creates a timeless aura, but overall, the design is still clearly Ruark.
Other highlights include a quality Bluetooth receiver, USB-C charge and playback port, switchable auxiliary input and headphone output. Finally, our trademark RotoDial control system makes R1 easy to use and for those seeking distant operation, there is a compact remote control available as an optional extra.
Undoubtedly the best way to appreciate R1 Mk4 is to see and hear it. With its contemporary new look, the design conscious will love it and for those avid radio listeners, it brings a new level of engagement. As we said back in 2006, radio never sounded or looked this good.
The OLED display vividly shows time, alarm and programme information and auto adjusts to suit ambient light levels making it a perfect bedside companion. Digital and Analogue reception is excellent, and FM parameters can be set to suit US and Japanese needs.
