Product information

This exquisite DAB radio from Ruark Audio arrives in a gorgeous compact design with a rich walnut veneer finish. It features a 3.5” custom high-fidelity drive unit for excellent sound quality and it’s simple to use thanks to its intuitive ‘Rotodial’ control system. There’s also a facility to adjust tone - plus a loudness option - so you can set the sound to suit your own taste. DAB text and alarm information is clearly displayed on the black and white LCD.

Dual alarms allow for once, daily, weekday and weekend settings. Both alarms (radio or buzzer) can be set to the volume required, depending on whether you’re a light or heavy sleeper. Also included is an adjustable sleep timer and a snooze function.

The R1’s front panel features a headphone socket and a line input to connect to your MP3 player or any other audio device. And on the rear panel there’s a pair of high quality gold plated phono outputs for recording or playback through an audio system.

Ruark R1 MKII DAB Digital Radio 4.7 5 42 42
Bought as replacement radio I purchased the Ruark DAB Radio in white, as a replacement for use in the kitchen, when my other radio stopped working. I love the size of it and it is so easy to use and tune in. Reception is very good. 30 July 2014
Excellent product This little radio is ideal for use in the kitchen. It is compact and attractive in the cream co lour. The sound quality is really excellent and I am delighted with the radio and thoroughly recommend it.. 09 July 2014
enjoyable experiance I found this radio easy to set up the channels,the cube shape looks good and there is no bling or flashing lights. with poor hearing i found the speaker ideal for me,it has a good bass and sounds for its size. I recommend it,small enough to fit any where in the home and easy on the eye. 08 July 2014
Really excellent sound quality It puts other similarly sized radios in the shade for rich sound quality, particularly as where we live we have good FM reception. Britain's digital radio system is the outdated poor quality DAB, but should we ever change to the better quality DAB+ like other countries, then this radio is DAB+ compatible, (which the product description does not mention). The only quibble is that the display is perhaps a little small and dated, but that is a relatively minor point. 15 June 2014
Amazing radio Highly recommend this radio. Great sound, good looks and solid build. 14 May 2014
best alarm clock radio ever Picked this initially on the basis of it's looks and fit with our bedroom furniture. Had high expectations of sound quality and ease of use based on it's relatively high ticket price to an equivalent Pure. It hasn't disappointed. I love it. Looks great, fab sound. love the fact that the alarm volume can be different to the last volume set, alarm can be set for weekends or weekdays or both, can wake up to radio or buzzer, and you can set the time for the radio so it automatically turns off after 30 mins etc, enough preset stations, and easy to set up. 10 out of 10. 13 May 2014
Great little gadget Looks good and sounds great Advice given in store excellent :-) 08 April 2014
Excellent sounding radio This was bought as a quality bedside radio/alarm, and it does the job well. The sound quality is excellent, remarkably good for such a compact device. It's very easy to set up the stations - does itself, basically - and reasonably easy to set alarms, though a little longwinded as you have to go through numerous options. DAB reception is good here, though will depend on where you are. It can do two alarms, which is useful and enough for our needs. They can be set to repeat on specified days, or always, or just a single time - in which case it can be set for any future date if necessary. The display is reasonably large and clear, though if anything lets this product down it is the rather basic 7-segment display, which would have looked OK 20 years ago, but we are now so used to far better screens on phones etc that it really lets the side down. It auto-dims as the ambient light gets dimmer, but as supplied it dims too much. The (helpful) manufacturers have a fix for this - a firmware update which you need to get from them and install - it's easy to do. This radio would get 5* if the display were better. 01 April 2014
