R1 MARK 3 RUARK
It looks like an old-school wireless but the Ruark R1 Mark 3 is a thoroughly modern music machine. It tunes in digital radio stations and FM broadcasts, and will stream music from smartphones over a Bluetooth connection. An improved RotoDial delivers straightforward access to its features, and an enhanced OLED screen shows the time, song titles and artists, or other text radio stations broadcast. The price is on the high side, but it has great sound quality, ease of use and that walnut veneer shine.
