Streaming Made Beautiful
Music is a universal language that transcends boundaries and connects people from different cultures and backgrounds. In a good way, music has the ability to make us feel happy or sad. At Ruark, we love sound and how it makes us feel and believe passionately that the best sound is vital when it comes to bringing people closer to the excitement and emotion of music. The striking design of R410 conjures up high expectations, and we’ve worked tirelessly to ensure that it fully delivers, providing sublime performance that will connect you closer to the music you love.
Designed to Be Seen
With exquisite attention to detail and a modern take on seventies-inspired styling, R410 is a product that’s designed to be seen. From the hand-crafted grille and cabinet to the precision-formed components, only the finest quality materials have been used.
Further enhancing R410’s stunning aesthetics is the material that we’ve selected for the grille and enclosure. Engineered from sustainable woods that are expertly spliced and recomposed, the resulting material closely resembles slow-growing hardwoods, but with the added benefit of true ecological credentials.
Engineered to Be Heard
Our audio heritage means we understand the complexities of cabinet, electronic and driver design in creating sound that will touch your soul. In R410 we’ve painstakingly tuned the reflex enclosures to house our new NS+ bass-mid units and combined with the tweeters from our award-winning MR1 speakers, the result is effortless performance that belies R410’s size. Together with the latest generation digital amplification, audiophile-grade components and the best audio processing technologies, R410 creates a magical performance that will connect you closer to the music you love.
Versatile Hi-Res Connectivity
At the heart of R410 lies a powerful processor, capable of supporting the highest quality music files. Spotify and TIDAL Connect are built-in, but if you like your music home-based, then R410’s media player will allow you to quickly browse and stream music from other devices on your network. Moreover, through R410’s inputs, it’s easy to connect a turntable or play CDs by connecting a CD-ROM drive to the USB input. In particular, with HDMI ARC/eARC connectivity, R410 makes a superb sound system for TVs and a complete solution for all your entertainment needs.
Apple AirPlay and Chromecast built-in
From LPs in the 50s, to CDs in the 80s, to MP3s in the noughties, it’s clear that the way we listen to music has evolved. With R410, you can still connect and enjoy a turntable or CD drive, but primarily R410 has been designed for streaming and making the most of the amazing music services available online.
With Apple AirPlay and Chromecast built-in, you can stream directly to R410 from apps such as ‘BBC Sounds, Amazon Music, Deezer and Qobuz’ with better than CD sound. You can also easily create a multi-room system, linking R410 with other AirPlay and Chromecast speakers. All future 100 Series models will have this interoperability too.
Beautiful to Control
Our RotoDial control system has been a distinctive part of Ruark products since the introduction of our R1 in 2006, but for 100 Series we have refined its design from top to bottom. Also included with R410 is a matching rechargeable remote. Bluetooth connectivity means that aiming is not required – and like a quality watch, it’s an item that you will love to use, as it looks and feels so good.
Beautiful to See
R410’s advanced processor has allowed us to provide a slick user interface, handling input from apps and our control system and promptly displaying the interaction on R410’s colour high-resolution display. The portrait orientation of the display intentionally emulates the way that we view most services on our smartphones, making R410 intuitive to use, but most importantly the display brings an interactive element to R410 that few other systems offer.
