Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks good, sounds good and does you good. Purchased via Telesales but wrong colour arrived (black and not walnut). However, black looked better and despite the very best efforts of Richersounds to swop it over I decided to keep it! I already had an R5 in walnut but the black looks better in the kitchen. I purchased the battery pack at the same time so now I can have music in the garden and garage as well. Not the cheapest of portable radios but the quality is on a different level.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality DAB radio. This Ruark is a great little radio and is perfect in our kitchen and as an alarm radio on the bedroom. Great sound and easy to operate.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Surprisingly good sound quality for its size! I am very pleased with my Ruark R1 radio. The sound quality is surprisingly good for a compact mono system. It is also very easy to operate and the design is a bit of a classic.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound from such a small unit. Bought this radio as the Cambridge go radio couldn’t be repaired Easy to set up and the reception far better than the go radio. Bluetooth is easy to set up. Neat design the Davidlinley version is £1295! ,I am not in that league! Very pleased with the help given by Sheffield Richer sounds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I was looking for. I bought the Ruark R1 clock radio as I was fed up with the poor quality sound of my clock radio. I couldn't find anything that sounded good but still would fit on my bedside cabinet. The sound is wonderful for it's size, the alarm wakes me up and is easy enough to turn off before it wakes the whole neighbourhood.
