It's hard to believe that the Ruark R1 has been around since 2005, but this little radio has always had what it takes to last. Since its introduction it has barely changed - sure there's been a few tweaks, and back in 2011 it almost lost its identity when the company name changed, but this radio has held its own and continues to be one of the most popular radios on the market. This is the MkIII version which is the latest version and launched in 2014.

The MkIII offers one big change over the older MkII in that it now has Bluetooth so you can connect wirelessly to a host of other Bluetooth devices such as your phone. There's also some other important tweaks - the USB input can now also charge iPhones and iPods too, whilst the new OLED display is a lot clearer and can also be turned completely off (handy if you are listening in bed). There's been some audio tweaks to the FM and AM radio too to make the sound quality just that little bit better. 

As always there's a choice of quality finishes plus the ability to add the BackPack charger for wireless portability and the CarryPack to keep your R1 safe whilst taking it outside - take it to the park or to the beach and enjoy wireless sound as well as quality sound at home.
