The leading purveyor of stylish standalone sound systems, Ruark Audio, has announced the latest incarnation of its iconic R1 DAB/Bluetooth radio.

An evolution of the original design, the new model sees a more progressive style available in Light Cream and Espresso finishes, including a hand-crafted slatted wood grille.

Ruark believes everyone deserves good design in their lives and the R1’s simple yet eye-catching design conceals state-of-the-art technology and connectivity. The R1 Mk4 sets new standards for sound and features, building on nearly four decades of high-end hi-fi know-how.

The R1 includes an OLED display screen, a quality Bluetooth receiver, USB-C charge and playback port, switchable auxiliary input and headphone output.

The introduction coincides with the 100th anniversary of the first commercial radio broadcast, showing the enduring emotional power of radio.

The R1 Mk4 will be available from December 2020 through a select dealer network, including John Lewis and many other quality independent retailers. The R1 will retail for £229.
