The Ruark Audio R1 Deluxe Bluetooth Radio exudes a simple design that seamlessly blends into any environment. This wireless speaker innocuously fits in your office, living room, kitchen, or bedroom. Its minimalist display clearly shows the time and playback details through OLED lighting that retains its brightness for years. The adjustable brightness also makes the display easy to read from any angle. In its core, a Ruark Audio 75mm drive pumps out high-fidelity sound that can be streamed from up to 7 different devices. Yet, what really sets the R1 apart is its first-in-class DAB+ technology. That allows the speaker to broadcast DAB and FM radio frequencies so you can scan the airwaves when you’re not streaming from your devices.
The R1’s pristine performance is neatly packed into a hand-made wooden frame finished in either a black or white lacquer or a rich walnut veneer. Ruark’s Rotodial design makes controlling playback simple, keeping the focus of this speaker on the integrity of your music.
