The sound of summer: Ruark Audio launches R1 Beach Hut Blue

Ruark Audio has introduced its first limited edition R1 Mk4 colourway for Summer 2021 – the eye-catching edition, aptly named ‘Beach Hut Blue’.

With so many people looking forward to ‘brighter’ days ahead, the Ruark R1 Beach Hut Blue is a perfect ‘feel good’ addition for any home that will bring memories of summer and great entertainment all year round.

The design of the radio enclosure makes it an ideal acoustically inert housing for Ruark’s Class A-B amplifier with adaptive equalisation and NS+ driver, resulting in a highly listenable sound at all volume levels. The OLED display vividly shows time and programme information and adjusts automatically to suit light levels making it a perfect bedside companion.

There’s a Bluetooth receiver, USB-C charge and playback port, switchable auxiliary input and headphone output.

Ruark’s trademark RotoDial makes the R1 easy to operate and for those seeking distant operation, there is a compact remote control available as an optional extra.

There is both Digital and Analogue transmissions, and FM parameters can also be set. The R1 also supports most languages, making it a truly international proposition and with its real time clock, time and date are kept live when power is disconnected or when transmitted data is not available.

The Beach Hut Blue R1 has a contemporary new look which the design conscious will love, and for those avid radio listeners, will bring a new level of enjoyment.

R1 Beach Hut Blue will be a limited edition with only 1,000 units available through a select network of quality independent retailers.
