The Cue r1 is an elegant iPod clock/radio with features a plenty and an audiophile pedigree.
Like most modern clock/radios, the r1 has an auto dimming LCD, along with dual alarms and an enhanced AM/FM tuner. Unlike most clock radios however, it features what Cue Acoustics calls, "touch sensitive" tuning which is some sort of tactile feedback mechanism.
The sound is handled by a bi-amplified 3.5 inch high-power woofer/mid-range speaker and a 3/4 inch silk dome tweeter.
The r1’s dimensions are smaller than a US "Letter" sized piece of paper and it will ship with a full featured remote.
The r1 should be available in the third quarter with a retail price of $399US, but interested parties can sign up for information updates at the Cue Acoustics website today.
