Ruark R810: A design icon reimagined

A statement product designed to form the focal point of any room, Ruark’s new flagship model is a radical reimagining of a design icon, says the maker.

With stunning sound, seamless connectivity, and expert craftsmanship, R810’s clean, precise lines and polished chrome stand echo the cutting-edge technology that lies beneath its elegant construction, says Ruark

As much a piece of sculptural furniture as it is an entertainment system, the Ruark R810 has been made to strengthen the emotional connection between the music and the listener.

A revival of the renowned radiograms of the past and an evolution of the brand’s classic R7 design, R810 is conceived from the ground up to deliver timeless luxury and form the entertainment heart of the home.

With precision formed trims and a polished chrome stand, R810 radiates sophisticated style, says its creator. Effortlessly versatile, R810’s veneered cabinet makes it a refined piece of home décor.

Enhancing its distinctive aesthetic is the special wood selected for the handcrafted grille and veneered cabinets, available in soft grey or walnut. Made from fast-growing sustainable woods that are spliced and reconstituted, the resulting grain patterns closely resemble slow-growing hardwoods without the ecological impact.

Completing the modern take on an enduring design, R810’s display provides the setting and source information needed, as well as faithfully recreating album artwork. Meanwhile, its portrait orientation emulates the way users view applications on smartphones, making R810 second nature to use.

A closer connection

R810 is optimised for streaming fans and vinyl aficionados alike. Able to decode the best quality audio streams, R810 opens up a world of music discovery with support for Spotify Connect and TIDAL Connect.

Meanwhile, Apple AirPlay and Chromecast built-in allows for simple direct streaming from the likes of BBC Sounds, Amazon Music, Deezer, Qobuz, and more, as well as the ability to build a flexible multiroom system.

Music playback is refined with the new and improved RotoDial control system, making every command a tactile pleasure. Also included with R810 is a matching rechargeable Bluetooth remote that feels good to hold and looks beautiful left on display.

For those that still love vinyl records and CDs, these mediums can also be enjoyed by connecting a turntable to the dedicated phono inputs or a CD ROM to the USB-C socket.

Additionally, with its HDMI ARC/eARC connectivity, connecting R810 to a TV is easy, taking the enjoyment of watching films and television to cinematic heights with its immersive audio performance. What’s more, it’s slick stand means R810 cuts a striking figure when placed beneath a wall-mounted screen.

And, in true Ruark style, comprehensive support for DAB/DAB+, FM, and Internet radio forms a complete entertainment system that takes users from morning coffee to movie nights, party soundtracks, and beyond.

What lies beneath

With high-fidelity speaker units and audio grade components used throughout, R810 features a high capacity linear power supply coupled to a 4.1 channel Class A-B discrete component amplifier.

With a nominal rating of 180 watts, R810’s powerful build means favourite songs are accurately reproduced. Further enhancing the performance of R810 is the integrated active subwoofer that underpins and adds authoritative bass that fills rooms with rich sound.
