RuarkAudio R1S Smart Radio


Radio has evolved and with catch-up services and podcasts now in the mix, the time has never been better to rediscover just how enjoyable this medium can be.

With its SmartRadio tuner, R1S allows access to stations worldwide and has a source dedicated to podcasts. While the amount of content out there is vast, R1S’s search facility makes finding and saving easy thanks to its RotoDial controller or optional remote. Also available is a new control app called Oktiv. This provides control of most R1S functions and is great for quickly browsing stations and podcasts.

With Wi-Fi and Bluetooth streaming built-in the appeal of R1S is further enhanced. R1S directly supports Spotify Connect*, Amazon Music and Deezer, and with its Bluetooth 5 receiver, virtually every other service available. The Bluetooth function remembers up to six devices and provides excellent sound quality and efficiency, meaning minimal battery drain on battery powered devices.

Another notable feature of R1S is its full colour TFT display. This clearly shows time, alarm, and program information and on Wi-Fi sources, album, and station artwork, too.
The light sensor automatically adjusts the screen to suit light levels, making it an ideal bedside companion.

Other features include a USB-C charge and MP3 playback port, headphone output, switchable line input and for those wanting portability, R1S is fully compatible with the optional BackPack 3 battery pack.

*R1S will also support Spotify Hi-Fi when made available.
