A Musical Instrument for Music Lovers
Not all instruments are created the same and the best are crafted by artisans who understand the importance of materials and techniques in creating instruments that are beautiful to play and hear. The enjoyment of music is one of life’s greatest pleasures and like the finest instruments, Ruark R810 has been designed and crafted to deliver stunning sound that will connect you closer to the music you love.
An Object to Desire
Like the iconic radiograms of yesteryear, Ruark R810 is a product that has been designed to be seen. Enhancing R810’s aesthetics is the special material we’ve selected for the handcrafted grille and veneered cabinets. Made from sustainable woods that are spliced and reconstituted, the resulting grain patterns closely resemble slow-growing hardwoods but without the ecological impact. Combined with the precision formed trims and polished chrome stand, Ruark R810 radiates sophistication and like the finest furniture, it is an object that you will cherish and be proud to have on display in your home.
A Beautiful Display
Many systems today rely totally on smartphones and suchlike to provide information on settings and source, but with Ruark R810 the hi-resolution display provides all the information you need right in front of you and brings the look of R810 to life. With its portrait orientation the display intentionally emulates the way we view music applications on our phones and in conjunction with our new RotoDial controller makes Ruark R810 second nature to use. The intensity of the display in standby and active mode is also fully adjustable to suit your needs.
What Lies Beneath
We’re passionate about aesthetic design, but we know that it’s what lies beneath that is fundamental in creating great sound. An example of this is Ruark R810’s enclosure where inside it has been carefully divided into compartments, each which have been optimised for their intended task. Twin bass reflex compartments house our NS+ bass-midrange units and silk dome tweeters and the long throw subwoofer is housed beneath, in an infinite baffle enclosure for superbly controlled and extended bass.
Driving the system is a powerful five channel Class A-B discrete component amplifier. Five separate channels means that we can precisely control the response of each drive unit and with the latest sound processing technologies, music is produced with effortless ease with a stunning soundstage that will immerse you and fill your home with exquisite sound.
Ruark R810 is a fully integrated entertainment system and provides all the connectivity you are ever likely to need. Streaming is its forte, but if you want to play records and CDs, these mediums can also be enjoyed by connecting a turntable to the phono inputs or a CD-ROM drive to the USB-C socket. Additionally with its HDMI ARC/eARC input, you can connect R810 to most modern TVs, taking the enjoyment of watching films to another level with its dynamic, spacious sound.
With its ability to play the highest quality audio streams, Ruark R810 opens a whole world of music and entertainment. Spotify Connect and TIDAL Connect are built-in and with the addition of Apple AirPlay and Chromecast built-in, you can stream and control directly from apps such as Apple Music, BBC Sounds, Amazon Music, Qobuz and many more. In addition you can also build a flexible multi-room system, linking R810 with other AirPlay and Chromecast compatible devices, including our own R410.
With touch-screens seemingly controlling everything these days, in our opinion you still can’t beat the positive click of a button or satisfying turn of a dial, particularly when it comes packaged as something unique and beautiful like our RotoDial control system, which for 100 Series has been improved and enhanced.
Included with Ruark R810 is a matching rechargeable remote. Bluetooth connectivity means that aiming is not required during operation and looking so good, it’s an item that you will want to leave out on display for everyone to touch and see.
