- Any Alternatives to this Ruark R2i Dab Docking radio.
I wanted to like the Ruark, but found the controls fiddly/nonsensical and the sound only ok.
Our little FM tivoli Model One sounds better. When we want dab, we hook it up to the phone/tablet/laptop and get the benefit of internet radio/youtube too.
I assume Tivoli do a DAB model, so it might be worth investigating. The sound is absolutely perfect for radio.Posted 4 years ago
Thanks for the suggestions, I have checked them all out. I really like the Tivoli, ( we already have a one FM radio, never thought to use the phono link for the iphone) but it is about the same price as the Ruark.
But ( god help me) I have also seen some really good looking homemade versions, I reckon I might have a pop at.

Have you heard the Ruark?
I would just make sure you do before purchasing. Maybe it was the demo, but I was really disappointed.
Yes Alex, I did not think it was any great shakes, but I will mainly be using it for the radio ( radio 4) The wife wants to use it as an ipod dock ( she wants a dock for chrimbo), My main reason was the looks and shape as it needs to fit on a bookshelf and shallow as it is not the sound. I am quite keen on building something now so may just get the wife any old dock for chrimbo a make a one for the long term.Posted 4 years ago
