Ruark Audio

Based on the South East Coast of England, Ruark Audio are a family-owned company with an amazing passionate team. Their love of music and sound came from the Father of Alan o'Rouke, founder and managing director of Ruark Audio. Alan's father worked within the British audio industry during the 60s and 70s, before Ruark Acoustics was formed in 1985. In the beginning they made loudspeaker systems for audio enthusiasts, but since 2006 they apply their skills to create radios and music systems with wide ranging appeal that look and sound fabulous in any space.

Their objectives are:


Ruark's mission is to design products that appeal to the heart as much as the head. Products that they would be proud to own.


Their aim is to create design icons of the future. Clean lines and proportions allied to special features such as their RotoDial control system make their products unique and instantly recognisable.

Performance & Functionality

Ruark's goal is for class-leading performance, intuitive operation and functions that are really beneficial, rather than frivolous features that may seldom be used.

Since launch, their models have become regarded as the finest available, gaining critical acclaim, including the Sunday Telegraph memorably describing the first generation R1 as ‘the Aston Martin of DAB radios’. This statement concisely describes the company ethos.

Whether you’re looking for beautiful design or perfect sound, we think you’ll be impressed by what Ruark have to offer.
