Most importantly, if you love listening to the radio then we are confident that you?ll find R1 a revelation.


The R1 deluxe tabletop DAB+/FM digital radio never sound or looked so good…

(that’s less than 1/2 price, limited stocks available)

The R1 allows users to set their radio as they like it! As you would expect from Vita/Ruark’s long audio heritage, sound quality is exceptional, but now with the facility to adjust tone and a loudness option, customers can ?fine-tune? the sound to suit their own taste.

Other improvements include:-

  • a high contrast ?easy to read? display,
  • comprehensive alarm system and
  • two quality accessories which add further to the new R1?s wide range of abilities
  • On the rear panel is a?switchable?line input so other audio devices such as an iPod, Android device or portable CD player can be easily connected and enjoyed.

Teamed up with the?BackPack?and?CarryPack?the R1 is fully portable so you can enjoy your?favourite?radio station whilst outside.

Why the crazy special price? Well, all our stock is branded as “Vita Audio”, and the manufacturers are in fact Ruark Audio, so they have decided to rebrand all their Digital radio products as Ruark Audio.

7 Feb 2012? What Hi-Fi press release brand into the range of ‘small audio’ products.

All existing products, currently branded Vita Audio, will remain technically and cosmetically the same with only the name changing, while?Ruark?Audio also promises a new model for release “in a few months time”.

Ruark?has always been the parent company, itself well known and respected for traditional?hi-fi?speakers, but the company chose to brand its radio and small audio products as Vita Audio when launched five years ago.

The company envisages the change to?Ruark?Audio being completed by the end of April 2012. The R1?MkII, R2i and R4i will continue under the?Ruark?Audio brand name.

And it seems international branding was a key part of the decision to change the name: “Our company name ?Ruark? is registered worldwide but we have been advised that this would be very difficult to fully achieve with ?Vita? as this is a word that is commonly used in many different countries.”
