Product Description

Ruark Audio R1 MK4 is the latest version of the R1, which was launched 14 years ago, boasting a great design and in-tune with the demands of discerning music lovers. It has retained its excellent sound quality while gaining additional functionality.

R1 Legacy

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, Ruark opted for a moulding process that allowed them to gently profile the enclosure.

This gives the form factor a fresh feel and provides a perfect surface for the new Light Cream and Espresso finishes. Complimenting the design is a hand-crafted slatted wood grille which brings further sophistication and creates a timeless aura that is still clearly Ruark.

New Standards

R1 Mk4 sets new standards for sound and features. With acoustic treatment the enclosure is strong and acoustically inert, providing an ideal housing for Ruark electronics and NS+ driver. A linear amplifier along with the NS+ driver and adaptive equalisation produce an eminently listenable sound at all volume levels.

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. R1 also supports most Western and Eastern languages making it a truly international proposition.


With a RTC (real time clock) built in, time and date are kept live when power is disconnected or when transmitted data is not available. Other highlights include a quality Bluetooth receiver, USB-C charge and playback port, switchable auxiliary input and headphone output.

Finally, the 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.

DAB, FM and Bluetooth

Its radio performance via DAB and FM is exceptional - and greatly improved from the last - and with DAB+ on board the Mk4 is future-proofed for upgrades. It will be in your life for years to come. It also features a Bluetooth receiver, for streaming music wirelessly from all Bluetooth enabled devices.

Versatile Radio

Other features are also built in to make this a very versatile little radio. This includes a comprehensive dual alarm and a USB charge port, which will recharge most smartphones.
