Product Description

Ruark Audio R1 Mk3 DAB radio is the latest, third-generation version of the iconic and award-winning compact radio from Ruark. At a glance, there is not much to see to tell them apart - but upon closer inspection, you will see it has retained its excellent sound quality while gaining additional functionality.

Refined Throughout

Much like the original R1, the MkIII is elegant, simple and understated, but carries class-leading sound and outstanding controls and features. Everything about it has been refined, from the operation to the sound quality. The improved RotoDial control system operates as beautifully (and slickly) as it looks.

Intuitive Interface

This, combined with the latest technology OLED display, offers an intuitive control interface that is incredibly easy to use. The cabinet has kept its predecessor's dimensions but is now available in a choice of Soft White and Soft Black lacquers or Rich Walnut. 

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 MkIII 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

But that's not all! 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.

Optional Accessories

If you want to enjoy the new R1 out and about, then the addition of our optional CarryPack and BackPack allow it to be enjoyed wherever mains power is not available.

Please Note: Pictures are for illustration purposes only, the black CarryPack and laptop pictured are not included. The price is for the radio only.

Press Reviews

  • 'With new features alongside an improved design, excellent audio performance and faultless usability, the R1 series has never been better... spend any amount of time with it and we challenge you not to want to take it home.' (What Hi-Fi Magazine April 2015)

  • 'There’s a depth and solidity to its performance that many of its competitors lack, with a clean, open and engaging nature that works just as well with talk radio as it does with music' (What Hi-Fi Magazine April 2015)

    Having chosen this over the Roberts iStream 93 purely because of its design, I called to check stock on this DAB radio and ordered walnut. Delivery was as advised and the text service from DPD was very useful as I could pop out without missing the delivery. Very pleased with the Ruark.
