Ruark Audio R1S Smart Radio

    Beautiful From Every Angle

    The R1S captivates with its impeccable aesthetics and audio. Its contoured body, distinct Mid Grey finish, and composite wood grille give R1S a sleek, modern look.

    Sustainably sourced and hand-crafted woods are intricately spliced, dyed, and crafted into an alternative that mimics the tones of slow-growth hardwoods without the environmental footprint. The cabinet and grille enhance the signature RotoDial controller and vibrant display, combining to create a product that embodies modern technological excellence.

    Supercharged Radio

    The radio landscape has been completely re-imagined with the addition of catch-up services and podcasts. R1S brings a multitude of options for a modern listening experience, featuring a SmartRadio tuner to access stations worldwide.

    With a vast choice of stations and podcasts, users can make use of the R1S's search facility to find their desired content. Additionally, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth streaming are embedded into the R1S's design for easy access. It's also compatible with popular services like Spotify Connect*, Amazon Music, and Deezer, and Bluetooth 5 technology enables connection to other compatible devices.

    Up to six devices can be synced with the R1S, allowing for seamless sound quality and low battery drain.

    *R1S will also support Spotify Hi-Fi when made available

    Class Leading Sound and More

    With a vivid colour display, time, alarm and programme information are clearly shown and on streamed sources, album, and station artwork can be displayed too. The display also auto-adjusts to suit light levels, making it an ideal bedside companion. Other features include a USB-C charge and MP3 playback port, headphone output and a switchable line input.

    R1S is an exceptional audio experience, thanks to its NS+ loudspeaker housed in a highly optimised enclosure. Paired with a dynamic linear amplifier with adaptive equalisation technology, R1S produces a listening experience at any volume which is both balanced and dynamic. From radio to streaming, R1S's superior sound quality will captivate and inspire music lovers alike.

    Control at a Distance

    The optional compact remote is a convenient addition to R1S and with four direct pre-set buttons, you can quickly access your favourite stations and playlists.

    Also available is a new free to download Android and iOS app called Oktiv. This also allows full control of R1S and is particularly useful for searching radio stations and podcasts.

    Mains Powered Sound on the Move With BackPack 3

    Attach BackPack 3 to the R1S for convenient access to its features and rich sound on-the-go. Once secured, BackPack 3 is always ready, autonomously charging the radio whenever mains power is re-applied.

    R1S is designed with intelligent power management, optimising battery life by switching to a low-power state when not in use. Fully charged, R1S can be used off-grid for up to 12 hours*, making it compatible with R1 Premium Bluetooth Radio and MR1 Bluetooth Speaker System.
