Ruark R1 Mk3 30th Anniversary Edition Tabletop FM / DAB Radio with Bluetooth - Swiss Red Anniversary Edition - Limited Availability -
To mark its 30th anniversary, luxury British family firm Ruark Audio has unveiled a limited edition of its most iconic design – the R1 tabletop radio – to celebrate three decades of rich audio heritage and exceptional craftsmanship.
Once described by Tatler as “simply the most beautiful radio in the world”, this special anniversary edition of R1 further builds on our desire to design and build products which you will love to use and cherish.
A vibrant ‘Swiss Red’ soft lacquer finish means the new model – the R1-30 – is now more eye-catching than ever. The unit is subtly embellished with an intricate commemorative badge machined into the cabinet to celebrate the company’s 30 years of delivering class-leading sound and beautiful design.
The current R1 is the third generation of Ruark’s classic table radio, the product that started the company’s transition from manufacturing Hi-Fidelity loudspeakers to quality compact audio systems. At first glance each generation looks surprisingly similar – as with all great designs the company only subtly modifies the distinctive look of its products. Scratch beneath the surface, however, and you will discover that every model has been painstakingly and completely redesigned.
The soft red finish will sit alongside Ruark’s existing line-up of R1 models, comprising classic rich walnut, soft black and soft white. As with other R1s, the anniversary edition features a bespoke RotoDial control system and an OLED display, offering a control interface that is crystal clear and intuitive to use.Specifications
