This page is intended to demonstrate the incredible value of our 6 Year Supercare. Under recent legislation, we are obliged to point out that you obviously do not need to purchase an extended warranty at the same time you purchase your electrical goods and are entitled to shop around.

Free loan machine (only if taken back to store)
Should you encounter a problem, just ask and you'll be provided with a unit to ensure you're not without music whilst your equipment is being fixed.
Like for like machine if unit is unrepairable
If, for any reason, we are unable to repair your unit, we'll replace it. Naturally, models do change so, while we can't guarantee that it will be the same model, we do guarantee that it will have equivalent specifications.
Free routine service / Maintenance checks
have your unit serviced as often as you wish, free of charge, during the 6 year period. (Normally excluded from extended guarantees).
45 day cooling off period
If you're not happy with our 6 Year Supercare package just ask for a full refund - no questions asked. After 45 days, providing no claim has been made, you can also terminate the agreement and receive a pro-rata refund.
If you use the policy in the 6 years, you'll have saved yourself tens and perhaps hundreds of pounds. If you don't use it...IT WON'T COST YOU A THING!*
* Simply return your unused Supercare policy within one month of the expiration date, and we'll refund the price of your warranty. Terms and Conditions

Iconic Design and class leading Audio quality

With the Ruark R1 MK3 the 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 and Ireland which are planned for introduction in 2016.

 

Customisable twin alarms

The 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.

 

Crystal clear clarity OLED display

Programme and set-up information are displayed with crystal clear clarity on the latest technology OLED (organic light emitting diode) display. The really good thing about this new display, is that it retains its vivid clarity at any viewing angle and the display brightness can be adjusted to suit your needs, both in standby and active modes.

 

RotoDial control system

In our opinion radios covered in buttons look ugly so one of the first tasks when Ruark launched Ruark Audio was to develop a control system which looked good and was easy to use. The result was the unique RotoDial control system. For R1 Mk3 it's evolved even further so it looks even better and with fewer buttons is more instinctive to use.

 

Handcrafted enclosure

 R1's enclosure is handcrafted from natural materials which Ruark 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.

 

Headphone output and switchable auxiliary input

On the rear of R1 you will find a headphone output and a switchable line input which allows other audio devices to be connected and enjoyed with R1’s sonorous sound.

 

The R1 Mk3 also features a USB charge port so you can conveniently charge your Smartphone, even when R1 is in standby mode.

 

High quality Bluetooth receiver

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.

Beautifully simple, the latest R1 is the third generation of the iconic table radio which started the Ruark Audio story and marked their transition from manufacturing Hi-Fidelity loudspeakers, to quality compact audio systems.

At first glance, the latest R1 appears remarkably similar to its predecessors, but look closely and you will see that everything about it has been refined. An updated ‘RotoDial’ control system looks and feels slicker and combined with the latest technology 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 R1 Mk3 has been elevated to an even greater level
