Ruark R1S is the compact FM DAB+ Internet Radio and podcast radio. It supports wireless connectivity via Bluetooth and via Wi Fi, with support for the most popular streaming platforms, including Spotify, Deezer and Amazon Music.

Calling it a clock radio is an understatement... Ruark R1S is the new version of the best compact radio in the world. The addition of WiFi to the smallest Ruark model – and therefore access to internet radio and SpotifyConnect, makes the R1S as compact as it is a complete music system. The new little one from the house extends connectivity and maintains the design that earned it the definition: the "Bentley of Radios".

According to surveys, the radio is still the main form of musical entertainment, which is why the famous English brand has gone so far as to design the best systems with FM and DAB+ radio tuners.

R1S now also integrates a new SmartRadio tuner that allows you to access stations and podcasts from all over the world. It also expands its connectivity landscape to provide an even more complete experience thanks to WiFi and Bluetooth streaming, allowing you to navigate between the most popular streaming platforms and directly supports Spotify Connect, Amazon Music and Deezer.

Aesthetically, the combination of hand-finished natural wood and Hi-Tech materials creates a product of refined design, ideal for any type of furniture, from the most classic to the most modern.

The design of this Smart Radio is studied in every detail: from the grille made using sustainable woods, to the new Mid Gray finish which offers a truly elegant and contemporary look.

The smallest High End system in the world

Ruark R1S is an unbeatable Smart Radio for connectivity and sound performance.

All sources - Radio or Streaming - can be navigated from the Oktis App so you can quickly browse songs, stations and podcasts.

While the amount of digital content is virtually limitless, the R1S's search function makes it easy to navigate and save using the RotoDial controller or optional remote control.

The extraordinary performance is guaranteed by Ruark's experience in Hi Fi: R1S offers a truly natural sound of the highest level. Thanks to the adaptive equalizer - Adaptive EQ - the response is automatically calibrated at each volume level but it is still possible to customize the performance by manually adjusting bass and treble.

The heart of R1S is a dynamic linear amplifier that uses adaptive equalization to provide perfect performance at all listening levels. The new NS+ driver with optimized support provides a uniform and very wide frequency response. Despite what its compact dimensions might suggest, the excellent low frequency performance makes listening pleasant and natural.

Upgraded ultra USB-C port

The USB-C port allows you to both charge devices - such as the most modern smartphones and tablets - and connect USB flash drives or play your favorite mp3 files.


The high resolution color LCD display clearly shows all the information in high resolution, also available in Italian: time, alarm, stations and program information as well as Wi Fi sources, song and album covers.

The display automatically adjusts the screen brightness based on the light in the environment, so as not to disturb anyone at night.

Battery Pack

You can take R1S everywhere with you thanks to the BackPack 3 module, the optional battery tailored for Ruark's R1S and MR1 models capable of guaranteeing up to 12 hours of listening time, thus transforming it into a full-fledged portable radio.

BackPack III connects perfectly to the appropriate input and can also be left installed during subsequent recharges.

Bluetooth connections

R1S is equipped with a high-quality Bluetooth module so you can transmit music quickly and easily, without having to go through the home Internet network.

You can stream music saved on your devices or from streaming platforms installed on your smartphone or tablet.


R1S is equipped with the iconic RotoDial: a controller positioned on the top side that allows you to manage playback. It allows you to browse between the various stations - FM, DAB+ or Internet Radio - as well as adjust the volume and power on of the device.

It also allows you to quickly and easily set up to two alarms.

Top clock radio

The color LCD display clearly shows the time and allows you to set an alarm, using any radio station as an alarm.

This feature combined with the ability to automatically adjust the screen brightness to adapt to varying ambient light levels make it the best way to wake up in a good mood.

If instead we want to stay in bed... we can set the sleep timer so we can fall asleep peacefully with the radio playing in the background.

FM, DAB+, Internet Radio and Podcasts

The R1S tuner allows digital and analogue reception of DAB+ and FM stations. Furthermore, thanks to Internet Radio support, it allows access to stations from all over the world and includes a source dedicated to Podcasts.

RotoDial and Remote Control

The trademark RotoDial control system makes the R1 really easy to use even without using the dedicated App. To avoid constantly getting up from your listening position, the ultra-compact infrared remote control is available as an option.

Ruark R1S Smart Desktop Radio DAB+ WiFi

Write a review



Già in possesso della versione precedente, solo DAB, ho voluto ampliare notevolmente la disponibilità delle emittenti radio presenti su internet grazie al WiFi di questo modello. Sulla qualità audio, che altro dire: il marchio Ruark è un riferimento nel suo campo. Il prezzo è decisamente giustificato dalla soddisfazione che si ha ascoltandola.
