1 Mins

Father-and-son team Brian and Alan O’Rourke formed Southend-on-Sea-based Ruark Acoustics in 1986. 

This limited-edition, retro red radio, officially known as the “Ruark Red” R1 MkII, marks the company’s 25th anniversary. 

It has ten station presets, an iPod input, silver metal grilles and a gloss lacquer finish. 

It also has an easy-to-read large format display that automatically adjusts to suit the light conditions in the room.

Audio performance is top notch thanks to the custom made 3.5″ drive unit and nine-watt integrated amplifier.

Dubbed “the Aston Martin of digital radios”, the Ruark Red – designed and engineered from the ground up in the UK, with each unit individually numbered – will set you back £179.99.

Retailers include in John Lewis, Selfridges and House of Fraser.
