Questions & Answers
To ask a question about this product please complete the short form below.
||although a little expensive its easy to see why its at the price it is, premium built fantastic sound even for such a small unit, and with the added bluetooth connectivity its a must for when I'm tidying the bedroom!|
||This is not a cheap radio in any sense but beautifully designed and with excellent sound, and intuitive, simple controls|
||I can't help thinking that I should not have needed to pay the thick end of £200 to get a decent bedside clock radio, but it seems I do and with life being short and all that I decided what the heck and forked out. I bought this item because it is a DAB radio with a proper aerial (not a dangling bit of wire), OLED display (not a barely visible LCD) and decent sound. Used as a bedside clock radio, I'm really happy with the product. There is a lot of bass and it pulls in signals well in what is a difficult area for radio reception. I successfully played some music from my phone on the R1 via bluetooth and the results were fine, but if someone is mainly looking for a bluetooth speaker then there are plenty of better cheaper and more portable products out there. I have deducted one star because at this price it needs to be perfect and it isn't; the main imperfections are that headphone connection is wired only (can't connect bluetooth headphones) and the alarm options are a bit limited when it comes to repeating the alarm on specified days of the week (i.e. there is a daily repeat, a weekday repeat but no repeat on specified days of the week).|
||Brilliant bit of kit. Fantastic sound. Intuitive controls. Looks great. Well worth the premium price tag|
||At £200 it may seem a little pricey but when compared to the near competition (£120-£180) it seems positively cheap in terms of what you are getting. So it ticked my basic requirements - Job done! But there is so much more to the R1... - Superb Build Quality - It just feels better than everything else, it's heavy and solid. You get the feeling it is going last. - Great Styling - The R1 comes in a range of finishes to meet any interior design style. It looks sleek and modern.|
||Well worth the money, I have yet to see anything that compares in terms of quality.|
||The DAB quality is the best I've heard from a 'bedside table' radio. It even has treble and bass tone controls which are a great help if, like me, your hearing has lost some of the high frequencies. It's expensive, but really worth the price. Buy one|
||This is a lovely little stereo. It sounds great, it has a good set of functions (DAB, FM, bluetooth, 3.5mm jack, and USB charging slot), it's really easy to use, and it has a really nice clear bright display. It's just a joy to listen to, and has improved my kitchen no end. Highly recommended.|
||Ruark have been clever with this radio. It is simple to operate and sounds amazing. The build quality is superb and looks great. Quite simply, you get what you pay for and this is no exception. Outstanding overall. 5 out of 5.|
||Superb piece of kit, great sound and functionality - could do with a remote if revamped.|
||This is without doubt the best radio I have ever owned. It not only looks fantastic and it sounds even better.|
||Clear, natural sound, very easy to set up and use|
||Amazing quality from such a small all in one. Great sound, looks good and very subtle. Well worth the purchase.|
||Excellent service & delivery from Simply Electricals. Fantastic product , absolutely love it , great quality - would highly recommend this product|
||Just arrived - I'm in love. Beautiful looks and sound and the first DAB radio ever which has got a signal in the flat I live in. Doddle to set up; plug in; follow the instructions; minutes later all done and dusted. This is small, ultra cute and functional|
||Great product. East to set up and use. Sound quality is great - much, much better that the Roberts and Sony devices it is replacing. Appears sturdy and build to last. Would thoroughly recommend. Treat yourself!|
||What can i say i wasnt sure about paying so much but wow is it worth it seriously im blown away|
||Yes it's expensive for a portable radio but everything about it feels high quality, even down to the packaging. It's simple to use looks great as a feature in my window sil and the sound quality is amazing. Bear in mind it's a portable radio regarding sound quality so you won't get thumping bass, so look elsewhere if that's your aim.|
||Im not what you would call tech savvy so Im not sure on the insides of this radio but as I'm guessing its a single speaker at the front the sound is brilliant as the tuner I pick up more DAB channels than my previous radio and is light enough to move from room to room, may invest in the external battery pack next.|
||Talk Sport sounds 10 fold better on here than it does on the car radio, perfect for Saturday afternoon football matches.|
