Summer is on its way at last, so we are all encouraged to think about preparing our homes and garden areas, so that we can enjoy the warmer weather to the full.
Ruark Audio, the UK company that makes some of the best compact audio systems and radios available, knows how to design its products, so that they are as much pieces of furniture as wonderful music systems with a great sound.
The Portable R1 MkII DAB Radio featured here, is ideal for open-air listening when used with the ten-hour battery set (Â£50) and the leather case (Â£40).
- The R1 MkII is offered in a beautiful pastel blue colour, as well as a practical walnut. It is also available in black and white, making it perfect for monochrome interiors. Priced at Â£200.
- To ensure that itâ€™s right for listening outdoors, the Ruark MkII Audio R1 also has a line-input, to enable other portable audio devices like the iPod to be attached and a line-out socket for connecting to a hi-fi system.
Also shown here, is the MR1 Bluetooth compact stereo speaker set, which produces high quality sound for various applications.
They work perfectly as desktop speakers for computers, but they are just as suitable as speakers that dramatically develop the sound of TVs, and as expansion speakers for Ruarkâ€™s own R2i/R4i models and other sound systems. Priced at Â£299.
