"Small but powerful, the R1 Mk3 balances performance,
features and functionality in a compact, stylish package"
'What Hi-Fi? Sound & Vision magazine'
April 2015. 5-star review.
Style & Performance
At first glance, the latest Ruark Audio R1 appears remarkably similar to its predecessors, but look closely and you will see that everything about it has been refined. The updated ‘RotoDial’ control system looks and feels slicker and combined with the latest OLED display, provides a control interface which is clear and intuitive to use. The enclosure retains the same attractive dimensions, but with the new soft lacquer finishes and crisp detailing of the front and rear panels, the craftsmanship and desirability of the R1 Mk3 has been elevated to an even greater level.
Bluetooth Wireless Audio
With a quality Bluetooth audio receiver built in, you can wirelessly stream your music, internet radio and other services such as Spotify, Deezer and Apple Music direct from your Smartphone or Computer to R1. Connecting is easy but moreover you will find that sound quality over Bluetooth is highly impressive.
High End Design
R1's enclosure is handcrafted from natural materials which we know from designing loudspeakers, gives the best sound quality. Clad in a choice of luxurious walnut veneer or soft white and soft black lacquers, this material also has the added benefit that it is wonderful to touch and see.
Dual Alarm Clock Function
R1 Mk3 will make any bedroom look and sound better and with customisable twin alarms you’ll be woken from your slumbers with quality sound exactly how and when you want. Also included is adjustable snooze and sleep timers so you can doze in a similar fashion.
Future Ready With DAB+
Radio performance via DAB and FM is exceptional and with DAB+ also built in, R1 Mk3 can be used in countries such as Australia and Germany, where this updated format is now being used. DAB+ also ensures that R1 is ready for new transmissions in the UK which are planned for introduction in 2016.
